[SNAP] Grant access to /media

Post by rednoah » 21 Jun 2017, 16:36

By default, SNAP packages are not allowed to access /media. The SNAP sandbox will deny access unless you have explicitly granted access to removable-media.

Grant access to removable-media if you want to process files in the /media folder with FileBot:

Code: Select all

sudo snap connect filebot:removable-media
@see https://github.com/snapcore/snapd/wiki/Interfaces

:idea: If you want to give a snap application full access to your system (e.g. /mnt) then you can use --devmode when installing the application to disable confinement entirely.
My (very excellent) support depends on Windows Store and Mac App Store sales and PayPal donations. Paying users, donors and everyone who contributes to FileBot in one way or another will get the very best support.


Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help. Donate if you'd like some extra developer love. :ugeek:

only 25 minutes after a reinstall I realized this is why it wasn't working!

I have a NAS mounted using cifs and Im not able to access the files on it... Is that possible?

Im using

/etc/fstab with the config

// /media/nas cifs uid=user,gid=user,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0660,dir_mode=0770,username=username,password=password 0 0

I have already tried --devmode
sudo snap connect filebot:removable-media
sudo snap connect filebot:network
sudo snap connect filebot:network-bind
