@simosx: I gave this another test on a clean xenial VM with the same gnome-software version as you. Each time it launched the main "libreoffice" command (showing a window asking to open recent files or create a new document in one of the libreoffice applications).
gnome-software continues running when you close the window, so is it possible you were still running the old version when you saw the failure? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to gnome-software in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1661590 Title: GNOME Software only supports running one application from a snap Status in GNOME Software: Fix Released Status in Snappy: In Progress Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in gnome-software source package in Xenial: Fix Committed Status in gnome-software source package in Artful: Won't Fix Status in gnome-software source package in Bionic: Fix Released Bug description: HOW TO REPRODUCE: 1. Install LibreOffice snap ('nonfree' tag) from Ubuntu Software. 2. Click on the 'Launch' button once you have it installed. WHAT IS EXPECTED: It should launch the LibreOffice wizard instead of any of Writer, Calc, etc. WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS: It launches LibreOffice Database. WHY THIS HAPPENS?
