How to create system wide alias to snap package in Ubuntu 16.04?
I would like to install Blender as a snap. I found, that there is blender-tpaw package which can be installed. Unfortunately after installing it, it is available in terminal under name
Using snap alias
So first of all I've tried to run command
sudo snap alias blender-tpaw blender, according to: https://insights.ubuntu.com/2017/01/28/ubuntu-core-how-to-enable-aliases-for-your-snaps-commands/. But this is what I've got:
error: cannot perform the following tasks: - Enable aliases for snap "blender-tpaw" (cannot enable alias "blender" for "blender-tpaw", no such alias)
Create symbolic link in /usr/local/bin
Then I've tried to make symbolic link
sudo ln -s /snap/bin/blender-tpaw /usr/local/bin/blender but in this case very strange thing happen: now when I type
blender in a terminal I've got output of
Put alias in /etc/profile.d
I've also tried to create alias in
But this work only, on my Ubuntu 16.04 Server, but doesn't work in Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop.
What I want to achieve?
I want that this alias will be system wide, for all users, without changing manually
.bashrc for each user separately. And I want the same way working on Ubuntu Server, and Ubuntu Desktop as well.
