[Solved]Can't access file outside /home dir

  • Hello,
    I'm a new Opera user on Ubuntu.
    Opera cannot access the local file outside the / home directory.
    For example, to upload a local file to Google Drive, I must first copy it to / home

    I think it's a snap application problem because it has already happened to me in the past with Gimp.
    Is there any way to solve it?

  • Yes, by removing the snap version and installing the regular (deb) one.
    What you face is one of major disabilities of the snap apps. Because they run in a sandboxed enviroment, they can not access everything on the filesystem.

  • @jimunderscorep Thanks, I solve the problem.
    First I installed from Ubuntu repository that have only snap version 👎🏼
    Now I installed .deb from Opera website and it work fine 👍🏼
