When executing the command heroku after installing via snap, it throws the error dropping privs did not work:

cesar@pc:~$ heroku --version
dropping privs did not work

But if I execute sudo heroku the command runs:

cesar@pc:~$ sudo heroku --version
 ▸    heroku-cli: update available from 6.16.4 to 6.99.0-ec9edad

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for Ubuntu users and developers.

  • Have you modified your user somehow? what is the output of id? – Dan Dec 1 '18 at 13:13
  • I have not modified my user. I do not know how to get the id you mention. – Cesar Romero Dec 3 '18 at 3:08
  • id is just a command. You just need to run it in a terminal and it should output info about your user and its groups. – Dan Dec 3 '18 at 8:36
  • I understand, thank you. When executing 'id' uid=1000(cesar) gid=0(root) grupos=0(root),4(adm),20(dialout),21(fax),24(cdrom),25(floppy),26(tape),27(sudo),30(dip),44(video),46(plugdev),120(lpadmin),121(sambashare) – Cesar Romero Dec 3 '18 at 22:44
