Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gedit (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This happens on both stable and latest channel. I have Communitheme snap installed and Suru icons set. gnome-characters and other gnome snaps do run but fail to fetch theme resources on 18.04 (see #LP:1828664). I also installed the snap on 19.04 where it runs fine.

Steps to reproduce

$ sudo snap install gedit --edge
gedit (edge) 3.32.0+git39.87d21ca4a aus Canonical✓ installiert
$ snap run gedit
