  1. That's what I don't like that they decide what I need and don't need on the desktop. If you don't like snaps don't remove them or your 19.10 hangs in a boot loop. It didn't find Chromium the first time because you typed chomr.

  2. 19:29 you didn't use the snap cmd correctly. When forking at that decission myself(same env yada yada yada), using snap instead of apt is when the hierachy is created. So like (forgive me if i am 100% wrong here) apt install chromium-browser would make like '/bin/chromium-browser' where using snap would make like '/snap/etc/chromium-browser'. Is how to say that the best way for explenation. i think apt wouldn't make jails though.

  3. I've actually never been keen on a cluttered desktop. A wallpaper and maybe a couple of desktop widgets with full transparency and I'm good. Removing the app menu would kinda make sense cause most apps don't make use of it anyway.

  4. You should record a video on Gnome Boxes at some point. I've been happy with VirtualBox but I am curious about this alternative.

    Thanks for all of the great content! I know that I will learn some new things when I watch one of yours.

  5. Hi Joe in case no one has mentioned it I use Ubuntu 1904 on an older system with Core i5 and 16GB of RAM and VirtualBox runs just fine it's zippy for me, maybe there's a bug with VirtualBox and Ubuntu 18 just thought you'd like to know.

  6. I like snap since there's a lot more software and versions with it. I don't know if I'd like it to replace apt. I'm mostly waiting for 20.04. I'm a single board computer user. Only LTS versions are stable enough to do good work. Manjaro is then another solution, but I always come back to Armbian(Ubuntu) Bionic 18.04. For now.
    If it works, don't fix it. A lot of work goes into making things work well on SBC's. So a transition isn't always easy. Thank you for the great info. Cheers, NicoD

  7. Snap packages are great because they make it easier to install software. Especially software that has many dependencies where some of it may even have to be manually compiled. It uses more disk space, but safes the user from many headaches.

  8. Looking forward to giving MATE a try, as it's been a while. Not sure I like the direction Canonical are going though if they're planning on having most apps installed as a Snap!

  9. Well looks good, but Gnome is not for me, nore snaps… Let me think, Ubuntu forcing snaps, Microsoft buys a seat at Canonical , Microsoft forces updates and other stuff. Hmmm. Ubuntu Now forcing Snaps…..
    Was going to move to Arch but apparently there losing their minds too! Stripping out everything! As of 10/7/19..
    Well MX and Manjaro for now, maybe down to MX…(:-(
    Damn Full Moons!

  10. Cripes, this snap shit is no joke. I'm running Kubuntu 18.04 right now, so it may be a while before I actually run into it, but I'm seriously thinking about switching out distro lines before it happens, to something like Manjaro or Fedora.
