Bug Description

This bug is to track the issue previously discussed on the forum at dating back to Oct 27th 2017.

"Back in April in the Call for testing: snapd 2.23 ( on Fedora thread, @morphis mentioned that “classic snaps: Snaps using classic confinement are not working yet.”. Is there a plan for when this will work? I just tested a couple of snaps on Fedora 27 here and got execv failed: No such file or directory. We have a few high profile applications in the store which are classic and would be great to have working cross-distro."

In addition to Fedora, classic snaps do not work on Arch Linux (including Antergos and Manjaro)
