PopOs, Gnome 3 and Snap - Aether is clickable but does not run

So far I have had the same issues on 2 units — both of which are using PopOs and Gnome 3.

Snap package was working fine a few weeks ago.

Now, when I go to run Aether from the menu, it will let me click the icon and then look like it’s starting up but nothing happens. No icon appears in the taskbar and no window from the program populates.

I have also tried to run the application from terminal. I will type “aether” in the prompt, and then it will just drop me to a new prompt right underneath the first command without opening anything.

I have tried uninstalling the snap, clearing out all file and trying again, but that doesn’t solve the issue either.

Also — Would there be any interest in packaging Aether as an AppImage or Flatpak in future releases?

I wrote about Snap / other packagers before: Aether on Linux Mint 20

In short, we’re definitely moving off Snap, but not sure what to. Still evaluating options. Mint removing Snap was the last stone that made the whole cart roll over.

That sounds like a Snap issue, but I’m unclear why — nothing has changed in the past few weeks. Are you running from the console with the --dangerous flag?

Yes. Installed it with --dangerous flag. It used to work great for the longest time. Then something updated and shit got real fucky.

Can’t wait till I figure out what is going on with it so I can actually be bank on Aether and start using it again!

I use Pop and Arch so I vote for deb and AUR :smiley:
