Having now managed to install some snapps on my system I'm once again
stuck on something which must be pretty simple.

'service webdm start' gives me:-

 ubuntu at localhost:~$ service webdm start
 webdm: unrecognized service

I can start webdm using the following command from the console:-


But I'm sure that's not correct.
