I wanted to try snapd on ubuntu 14.04, but there was some dependency problems.

Apparently systemd conflicts with some xorg/mesa drivers I have installed with the HWE packages.

I removed some of them and tried again and it worked. Now I'm able to install and use snaps.

Then I tried to reinstall the HWE packages and get this:

chestrada@estacion17:~$ sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-xenial xserver-xorg-core-lts-xenial xserver-xorg-lts-xenial xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-xenial xserver-xorg-input-all-lts-xenial libwayland-egl1-mesa-lts-xenial libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-xenial libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-xenial:i386 libglapi-mesa-lts-xenial:i386

So, installing the HWE packages removes systemd and snapd.

Is there a bug here?

thanks for trying out snapd. The behavior you are observing is a known issue (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/systemd/+bug/1650389). Almost all required changes landed, except for an xserver update (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server/+bug/1619142) that is currently waiting in -proposed. We expect propagation to the -updates pocket very soon.

To fix your immediate issue, you might want to enable trusty-proposed and install xserver-xorg-core-lts-xenial. That will address your conflicts/downgrade issue.

Hope that helps.


UPDATE:

With https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server-lts-xenial/+bug/1655724 released, the issue should be solved.
