Bug Description

gtk softwares need gio to be able to do things like getting access to non local urls, proxy, dconf settings (though that's another topic needing more work, ...)

if you want that to work you need to
- include the gio plugins (gvfs, dconf, proxy, ...)
- generate a cache (or ship a static one in the source and copy it)
- set the environment variable GIO_MODULE_DIR=$SNAP/usr/lib/$ARCH/gio/modules

ideally snapcraft would do that for you

I think ideally there should be a "desktop" framework that would include the complete Qt and GTK stacks.

This should be a part on the cloud that gets it done for you. Mind contributing to that?

I can try to have a look, do you have any documentation about that cloud side/how it works/how to contribute? also unsure why you changed it to incomplete, what sort of information do you need?

We don't have docs for remote parts, we need to add that, and also we need to improve some important parts of sharing parts. For now, you can look at the existing parts:
