    Glad you solved it. I've marked you thread "Solved", which you can find within the Thread Tools menu in your first post.

    I feel your pain, but in this case, it is the way that snaps were properly designed to behave. Part of snapcraft's function is to jail apps to prohibit them from running rampant on the rest of your system. So, a nasty app might have access to certain files on your /home, but it can't act on your NFS shares. Security in depth: in this case, layers. Higher security is the default. You have to make a conscious act to lower it and give it unfettered access.

    The problem is not the principle involved (which is a good one) but the lack of clarity. Before snaps are installed, they should come with a warning as well as jailbreaking instructions.

    When we understand that snaps are to be installed via the software store and that right after installation there's a huge red Permission button, everything should be self-explanatory after clicking it.
