Bug Description

when we moved xdg-open inside core from /usr/local/bin to /usr/bin, the path of the unity7 interface was not adjusted for it:

I think is now fixed in 2.27.2; ogra, can you please confirm and close?

Just tried this on a a fresh install of 17.10 with snapd 2.27.2 and I'm seeing a weird issue.

$ snap run --shell hiri
To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
See "man sudo_root" for details.

osboxes@osboxes:/home/osboxes$ xdg-open
Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name com.canonical.SafeLauncher was not provided by any .service files

The links work if I install snapd-xdg-open, but I understand that this package isn't required anymore?

Oddly, when I then uninstall snapd-xdg-open, the links continue to work. As if something got left behind.

snapd-xdg-open is still required until is implemented ...

Ok, didn't realise that didn't go in yet. Sorry for the noise.

Technically the upstream snapd source tarball was released already so depending on which OS you are on, you will see things just work.

2.27.5 is now in `stable` so closing this bug! :D

Changed in snapd:
status: In Progress → Fix Released

Also worth noting that the `snapd-xdg-open` package will no longer be needed when 2.28 is released! :D
