Snap refresh and saved gnome-keyring passwords

George G
Hello,

I am using remmina as a snap in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and i am saving my
remmina passwords stored in gnome-keyring.

Everything works as intended!

Yesterday my remmina snap was refreshed:

user@host:~$ snap list --all remmina
Name     Version                Rev   Tracking       Publisher  Notes
remmina  v1.4.8+git10.2058366a  4324  latest/stable  remmina✓   disabled
remmina  v1.4.9+git2.d1f1f46e   4532  latest/stable  remmina✓   -

After the refresh all my remmina passwords are not accessible.

Checking with seahorse (gnome-keyring GUI) i found out that passwords
are saved using a filename like:

filename: /home/user/snap/remmina/4324/.local/share/remmina/somehost.remmina

Checking the remmina snap folder i noticed a link (current -> 4532):

user@host:~$ ls -lh snap/remmina/
total 12K
drwxr-xr-x 4 user user 4,0K Νοε  19 11:13 4324
drwxr-xr-x 4 user user 4,0K Νοε  23 19:38 4532
drwxr-xr-x 3 user user 4,0K Νοε  19 11:13 common
lrwxrwxrwx 1 user user    4 Νοε  23 19:38 current -> 4532

Is there a way to store remmina passwords in gnome keyring using a
filename like:

filename:
/home/user/snap/remmina/current/.local/share/remmina/somehost.remmina

so that after every snap refresh my passwords will be accessible without
saving them again for the latest snap revision?

Thank you in advance,

George

the remmina snap is maintained by the remmina developers themselves ...
i doubt they read this list ...

but https://snapcraft.io/remmina has a link to their issue tracker:

https://gitlab.com/Remmina/Remmina/issues

i guess this is a better place to ask this question ...

ciao

I hope you can recover from this.

This kind of foolishness is why I avoid snap.
