    Re: Uninstall Snap Opera?

    Code:
    snap remove snap-package-name
    replace the snap-package-name with the name of the snap.

    If unclear what the snap name is use
    Code:
    snap list
    to see.
    Code:
    snap help
    for more.

    Snap command line doesn't require sudo to run, It's built with the ability to run elevated when required.
    A password dialog box should show when you want to make changes like install or remove.
    If you run the remove command as posted above and no password box shows, you can run the command with sudo.
    But running with sudo is only a quick fix fallback, as it should open the dialog box automatically.

    And if you want a full removal you might want to remove the folder created by the snap package inside your home folder's snap folder.
    This is the user's configuration folder for snap packages.

    OK, great thanks.
