    Thread moved to the "Ubuntu Development Version" forum.

    If anything, more of the release than current will be based on snaps. Newer, improved whiter than white, ect ect..

    And all snap users get them and benefit, regardless of the OS release they are running. One snap for all.

    Do you mean snap itself or a snap installed program? First thing I did was remove purge delete snapd.

    Re: 20.04 Snaps

    First thing I do is uninstall snaps.
    But then I also install chromium and now it only is available as a snap.

    But found there is a ppa for now, have not tried that to know if it works yet.

    And I use gnome fallback or gnome-panel.
    But had to work to get icons on desktop & cannot add icons to top panel which I use a lot.
    My monitor is 4:3 so having 3 or 4 favorites in top panel makes it easy for me to open terminal or Firefox when needed. Space on side is at premium since terminal is narrower. Most now with wider screens will not have that concern, so not sure if I will get fix or not.

    What problems did you had? Or still have? GNOME Flashback (3.35.1) now has experimental desktop icons. Also what problems you have with icons in panel? Is there bug report?

    Is this about icons in panel?

    Re: 20.04 Snaps

    Originally both on desktop & panel.

    But was able to add icons to desktop with some setting but that only added /home & trash.
    But then found copying into ~/desktop worked and allow launch worked.
    For example copied this into desktop & after allow launch it worked.
    Code:
    fred@bionic-z97:/media/fred/focal/home/fred/Desktop$ ll
    total 40
    drwxr-xr-x  2 fred fred  4096 Dec 20 12:04 ./
    drwxr-xr-x 12 fred fred  4096 Dec 20 10:44 ../
    -rwxr--r--  1 fred fred  9261 Dec  5 14:31 firefox.desktop*
    -rwxr--r--  1 fred fred   549 Oct 22 05:22 org.gnome.Terminal.desktop*
    -rwxr--r--  1 fred fred 10062 Dec 17 11:04 thunderbird.desktop*
    -rwxr-xr-x  1 fred fred  3803 Apr  4  2019 zim.desktop*
    Still have not found if I can add to top panel.

    Drag & drop to/on panel!? Does not work?

    What setting did you use? I think by default you should not need to change anything...

    Anyway, if you have problems in GNOME Flashback, please report bugs.

    Re: 20.04 Snaps

    I believe I used tweak tool to add icons, but that only added home & trash.

    I think I used this to find desktop icons & add to desktop in 20.04.
