Public bug reported:

It looks like the `gnome-system-monitor` package is installed as a snap
package since Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic by default [1]. Unfortunately, this
affects some GNOME Shell extensions.

The popular "system-monitor" extension [3][4] fails to locate the system
monitor executable to call and open it from the context menu.

A related bug report on GitHub [5] (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 [2] 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? (i.e. wontfix)
