In Ubuntu 19.04, you can install Chromium using snap like this:
sudo snap install chromium
However, when installing Chromium via snap, you cannot sandbox it with firejail like this:
The command above runs the non-snap version of chromium in a sandbox where chromium only has access to the Downloads folder (and not your entire home folder).
However, when Chromium is install as a SNAP, firejail cannot achieve these file system restrictions. When you use Chromium installed via
sudo apt install chromium-browser, firejail works, but it doesn't work with snap-installed chromium.
I've requested an alternative snap installation method, that only gives Chromium access to the
Downloads folder here.
Until then, how can I sandbox Chromium (installed via SNAP), in a manner like firejail sandboxes Chromium (installed via apt)?
