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 found.
This could easily be done through the CLI with `snap list` and `snap run`. 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. ** Changed in: gnome-system-monitor (Ubuntu) Status: New => Invalid -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Desktop Bugs, which is subscribed to gnome-system-monitor in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1819263 Title: GNOME Shell applet can't open System Monitor installed as Snap To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-system-monitor/+bug/1819263/+subscriptions -- desktop-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/desktop-bugs
