How can I tell the difference between the same software installed using snap vs using apt?
I have installed firefox and vlc from the package manager and from snap, but when I go to "show applications" or "activities" search they look the same. The only way I can tell is by running the program. Is there some way I can change the icon or something so I know which are snaps and which are apt?
Why would I install two versions of the same program like this?
Well, the apt firefox has a bunch of java script blocker extensions and other configuration changes from restoreprivacy.com so that it is as secure and private as I can make it, even if it breaks some sites. I use this for a lot of stuff.
I use the snap firefox for stuff like webex meetings where I need user-agent switcher extension to say I am on windows 10 for it to work and other activities required for school where I need extensions that have access to every webpage and require access to data, etc. essentially the opposite of private and secure.
apt vlc inherits dark style from system, but doesn't play fullscreen video on second monitor. snap vlc plays fullscreen video on second monitor, but doesn't inherit dark theme.
