    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Solved Help with snap packages: menu entries and easy management

Hello,

Running Pop!_OS 19.10 and recently installed the latest version of Kdenlive as a Snap package since the version available in the repositories is older. The installation appears to have gone off without a hitch. However, I was surprised to see that an app icon was not added, so I have to launch Kdenlive manually. This leaves me with two related questions:

1) Can anyone recommend a graphical frontend for adding and managing snaps, like Pop Shop, GNOME Software, or Synaptic?

2) Is it normal for app icons not to be added following installation of a snap? Is there a way I can make this happen automatically so I don't have to create an entry manually?

Thanks for any assistance. Still a bit of a newbie getting my sealegs.

Luke

Update: I don't know what happened, but the issue of the app icon not appearing in the list of installed software appears to have been a fluke; it didn't show up initially for some reason, but is there now. Similarly, I found Snapcraft, which I vaguely remembered but needed some jogging to find again. My apologies for the relatively useleless thread. Moderators, feel free to delete it.
