Updated my 14.10 desktop, fresh KVM, snappy-remote is snappy-remote 0.4-0ubuntu1 as seen in the Software Centre - it doesn’t seem to have a switch to print the version, still asks for password but does put an entry in to the authorized_keys on the KVM not that it then allows password free installs.

Tried to remove the snap I installed but it was still in /apps, tried to remove again but said it wasn’t there, rm -rf to clear out the directory.

Generated an rsa_id and sent it to the KVM. The next install attempt worked without password.

Cleaned it all out and did a rerun: This time, now I have an rsa_id, it uploaded it to the KVM so multiple passwords weren’t required. Worth noting that an id is required and there will be a one time password request. Still didn’t launch or remove the snap properly.
