Hello Douglas, thanks for the report. AppArmor is one of several tools the snap packaging system uses to enforce confinement on packages. The AppArmor project doesn't supply the policy though, just the enforcement mechanism. I believe you'll need to talk to whoever wrote the snap package, as they request the privileges necessary when packaging the application.
Try 'snap info' on the name of the snap package that provides the colour picker; it should provide some contact details for the packager.

The creator of the application believes this to be a problem with my system, not with their app. Apparently, AppArmor is preventing it from starting. I'm not familiar with this MAC implementation, but the logs suggest that this is the problem.

I take great care not to mess with system components such as snapd. Other snaps are working properly.
