2016-07-19 16:27:14 Timothy Redaelli description X-based snaps doesn't work on some distros with KDE5 since the XAUTHORITY env variable points to `/tmp/xauth-${UID}-${DISPLAY/:/_}` that is not usable inside a snap since `/tmp/` is remounted (see kdeinit5). **Workaround**: You can launch the snap (tested on ArchLinux) using the old ~/.Xauthority file: ``` XAUTHORITY=~/.Xauthority /snap/bin/vlc ``` If you don't have an updated `~/.Xauthority` just do `cp /tmp/xauth-${UID}-${DISPLAY/:/_} ~/.Xauthority` X-based snaps doesn't work on some distros with KDE5 since the XAUTHORITY env variable points to /tmp/xauth-${UID}-${DISPLAY/:/_} that is not usable inside a snap since /tmp/ is private inside the snap (see kdeinit5). **Workaround**: You can launch the snap (tested on ArchLinux) using the old ~/.Xauthority file: XAUTHORITY=~/.Xauthority /snap/bin/vlc If you don't have an updated ~/.Xauthority just do cp /tmp/xauth-${UID}-${DISPLAY/:/_} ~/.Xauthority
