Hi Peter, 
  Thanks for your bug report. 

I was one of the original authors the system-monitor extension however
no longer actively involved in the project. gnome-shell extensions are
not supported by Canonical/Ubuntu (unless they are installed in the
default session) or GNOME.  You would need to fix system-monitor
extension to support querying for snaps in case the desktop file is not

This could easily be done through the CLI with `snap list` and `snap

However a much nicer solution would probably be to use snapd-glib which
provides gobject-introspection bindings to snapd. I am not really
familiar with their API, but suspect it should provide similar
functionality to the CLI tool.

I am going to close this bug since its not really a bug in gnome-system-
monitor and could equally happen on any other distro that supports
snaps, if the user has installed gnome-system-monitor as a snap instead
of native packaging.
