anyone has idea how can I remove this Snap related fake drvies from double commander?

They are not present in Files 3.14


Here is output of lsblk -f

    Please add output of lsblk -f and losetup to the question. – N0rbert Nov 9 at 7:27

    Your outputs confirms the preliminary idea - DoubleCommander show mount-points of snap-applications (you can find exact numbers 54, 57, 5548, 61, 5662, 5742 on the toolbar). What is interesting I have tested doublecmd (installed 0.8.2-1 from official APT repository) on 18.04 LTS and do not see snap drives here. But on 16.04 LTS I can confirm the behavior. I tried to add snap locations to Ignore list in Options→Ignore list with no luck. – N0rbert Nov 9 at 13:40

It seems that problem is fixed in modern versions of Double Commander.

For example version 0.8.2 from Ubuntu 18.04 LTS does not show snap mount-points.

But you can install newer version of Double Commander on 16.04 LTS from the PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexx2000/doublecmd
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install doublecmd-gtk

and enjoy:
