[SRU] Cannot open a browser link from a snap that provides a link
Status in Snappy:
Status in snapd-xdg-open package in Ubuntu:
Status in snapd-xdg-open source package in Xenial:
Links in snaps cannot be opened on the host.
Steps to reproduce:
- Run `sudo snap install telegram-sergiusens`
- Launch telegram-sergiusens.sergiusens (or from the dash)
- Receive a link
- Try an open the link.
The reason for it not working is that there is no browser in ubuntu-
core and there is no handler that knows how to redirect this to the
classic Ubuntu instance.
* The fix is a new package to be pulled in by snapd, so there is
little risk of regression
* snapd-xdg-open is just one piece of two that are needed to fix this
bug. The other piece is a fake xdg-open script that is available in
the OS snap, which simply makes a D-Bus method invocation to the
service in snapd-xdg-open
