This bug report seems to correctly diagnose the issue, which is of course a major problem for a file "viewer"-type application.
As a filthy workaround, I found I could snap refresh with the --devmode switch explained here: <https://snapcraft.io/blog/demystifying-snap- confinement>. Of course, that page also explains "End users should not normally install snaps in devmode as this undoes any protections set out with confinement and interfaces." -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1745999 Title: Okular snap package cannot access files outside home directory To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kdegraphics/+bug/1745999/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
