My PC has Ubuntu 18.04 installed.
It does not want to launch the System Monitor.
This seems to be an OS related issue. I have launched it before and it worked fine. Possibly due to some updates it has stopped working.
I am not looking for a solution. I just wanted to report this and I hope the issue will be remedied soon with an update.
I would like to know whether other people have the same issue with 18.04.
I try to launch it via: Super+A, open System Monitor. No errors. For a few seconds the "loading circle" tries to convince me that there is an attempt to launch it. But then it disappears and nothing happens.
I am not sure whether this is the command to open from the terminal, but when I run
gnome-system-monitor, it tells me:
/snap/gnome-system-monitor/41/bin/desktop-launch: line 23: /home/sandu/.config/user-dirs.dirs: Permission denied You need to connect this snap to the gnome platform snap. You can do this with those commands: snap install gnome-3-26-1604 snap connect gnome-system-monitor:gnome-3-26-1604 gnome-3-26-1604 (the '3-26-1604' number defines the platform version and might change)
snap install gnome-3-26-1604and
snap connect gnome-system-monitor:gnome-3-26-1604 gnome-3-26-1604.
snap remove gnome-system-monitor) and install the traditional one (
sudo apt install gnome-system-monitor).
