Snapcraft Desktop Helpers

The snapcraft desktop helpers project contains a number of tools to help you create snaps for desktop applications. For example, several environment variables and compatibility symlinks are setup in the desktop-launch wrapper to help ensure the snap can find needed files.

How to use the desktop helpers

Go to the documentation on snapping graphical applications and follow the instructions for the GUI toolkit that your application uses.

ℹ️ We are currently in the process of moving most of the functionality of the desktop helpers to Snapcraft Extensions. The extensions are much easier to use and contain many improvements, so it's advised to use an extension if one is available for the GUI toolkit that you use.
