When trying to open/edit an svg file in the
/tmp directory using inkscape, e.g.,
inkscape /tmp/test.svg it throws the error/warning

inkscape ~/test.svg the test file opens just fine.

/tmp folder, it just can't use files from the folder.
I am running Solus 4, and installed inkscape using
sudo snap install inkscape.
