    Install Gnome by Snap?!

    I am running Kubuntu 19.10 and I am thinking about installing Gnome.
    I saw it offered as a snap.

    What is this package?

    As the description says: base libraries and desktop integration. It's a helper package for Gnome based programs packaged as snap so they don't have to either bring along 100 MB+ in libraries each of them. This package does AFAIK not contain a desktop you could use.

    That is just a support package for gnome applications. You can see it in a list of installed snaps:
