The main app in my snapped feature wants to initiate some xterm sessions and run a different local snap command in each. However, I can't manage to get a terminal emulator of any sort to behave correctly within the snap (if they startup at all, then they cannot receive keystroke input). I have tried xterm, rxvt, and the vte-based sakura as staged-packages. Plugging to the X11 slot interface (and even Unity7) seems to have no effect. They build OK but fail at runtime with similar failures :
>/snap/exfab/x1/usr/bin/sakura: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
>/snap/exfab/x1/usr/bin/rxvt-xterm: error while loading shared libraries: libX11.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
>/snap/exfab/x1/usr/bin/xterm: error while loading shared libraries: libXft.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
My target machine is a Xenial VM in VirtualBox . . .
Does anyone do terminal emulation from a snap ?
