I often use drawing application.

Since a few days the app doesn't start. I have Ubuntu 22. I tried to uninstall and re-install the app via snap, but, even after that, nothing happens when I start the app. Here is my terminal output.

user@user-All-Series:~$ sudo snap install drawing
[sudo] password di user: 
drawing 1.0.1 da Ken VanDine è stato installato
user@user-All-Series:~$ drawing &
[1] 212365
user@user-All-Series:~$ /snap/drawing/27/gnome-platform/command-chain/desktop-launch: /snap/drawing/27/usr/bin/drawing: /snap/gnome-42-2204-sdk/current/usr/bin/python3: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
/snap/drawing/27/gnome-platform/command-chain/desktop-launch: line 603: /snap/drawing/27/usr/bin/drawing: Success

Any help is appreciated. Thank you, Andrea

  • Ubuntu 22, so you're using Ubuntu Core 22 ? (22 & 22.04 are different Ubuntu products; the different format highlights differences between them)

    In case this is an issue; I've reported it here - forum.snapcraft.io/t/drawing-snap-not-working/13669/22 (I don't have time currently to test for it; so reported using text from this page only)

I had the same problem with the Gnome Drawing app, but I found the solution. Installing gnome-42-2204-sdk solves this as it provides the necessarily libraries needed for gnome 42 apps. I don't know why the dependency doesn't come installed with drawing when updating snaps.


Shared GNOME 42 Ubuntu stack

This snap contains only the necessary libraries required by GNOME applications.

Install it by typing:

sudo snap install gnome-42-2204-sdk
