UPDATE: No, it is not safe to delete these snaps. I deleted them and can no longer open three of my applications. Attempt at opening Visual Studio Code:
internal error, please report: running "code" failed: cannot find installed snap "code" at revision 33: missing file /snap/code/33/meta/snap.yaml
The snaps in
/var/lib/snapd/snaps are taking up 2.0 GB of space on my disk right now. I want to clear up space, but I'm not sure if deleting these snaps is safe (if so, can I just run
sudo rm -rf *?)
This is what I see when I run
code_32.snap gnome-3-28-1804_116.snap gnome-logs_93.snap code_33.snap gnome-3-34-1804_27.snap gnome-system-monitor_135.snap core18_1705.snap gnome-3-34-1804_33.snap gnome-system-monitor_145.snap core18_1754.snap gnome-calculator_730.snap gtk-common-themes_1502.snap core_8935.snap gnome-calculator_748.snap gtk-common-themes_1506.snap core_9066.snap gnome-characters_495.snap partial discord_109.snap gnome-characters_539.snap spotify_36.snap gnome-3-28-1804_110.snap gnome-logs_100.snap spotify_41.snap
What are the
gnome, code, and
I've installed discord and spotify. Will deleting the
spotify snaps lead to any issues with opening those applications?
I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS.
snapsdirectory and used
sudo rm -rfto manually delete each snap, instead of deleting with
sudo apt purge snapd. The reason I didn't use that command is because I wasn't sure if it was safe to delete the whole
snapsdirectory. Are you absolutely sure purging and reinstalling snapd is safe?
sudo apt purge snapdwill remove the package and all config files. I'm not 100% certain if it'll be completely successful, but I would definitely try that first.
