I have installed two snap apps: Gitter and KeePassXC:

gorre@uplink:~$ sudo snap install gitter-desktop
gorre@uplink:~$ sudo snap install keepassxc

Now when I do snap list I can see they are indeed installed:

gorre@uplink:~$ snap list
Name            Version    Rev   Developer       Notes
core            16-2.29.3  3440  canonical       core
gitter-desktop  3.1.0      9     snapcrafters    -
keepassxc       2.2.2      26    keepassxreboot  -

The issue is: they don't appear in the Ubuntu's Dash, so I have to go to a terminal and execute the app from there, but I do really like to see them "integrated" (to name it somehow) in the operating system...if there is a way.

I'm running: Linux uplink 4.10.0-40-generic #44~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Nov 9 15:37:44 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux.

Any clues?


They should be integrated. They certainly are here on my Ubuntu 16.04 system. Sometimes Unity needs a nudge to get it to refresh desktop files that have been installed. This command may do that for you.

sudo update-desktop-database

Alternatively, logout and log back in again.

    I didn't know about that little update-desktop-database. That did the trick ;) ...thanks! – user588189 Dec 4 '17 at 15:21
