Public bug reported: It looks like the `gnome-system-monitor` package is installed as a snap package since Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic by default . Unfortunately, this affects some GNOME Shell extensions.
The popular "system-monitor" extension  fails to locate the system monitor executable to call and open it from the context menu. A related bug report on GitHub  (issue #474) explains the problem and documents that several users solve the issue by uninstalling the snap and installing the gnome-system-monitor .deb package  instead. Do we have to fix the GNOME Shell extension (if yes, how?), can this issue be resolved in the snap package, or is that a permanent restriction of the snap package?
