I agree on Nils's as well as on your opinion. The link is
"intimidating" and way too long, containing a lot of irrelevant
information and a few insults. However, it's a link much used, since
it's not easy to find a better explanation.

I don't use this software myself, but likely the snap as well as the
PPA solve the issue. For some software snaps could suffer from
"limitations". I don't know if it's the case here, but I would try the
PPA first.
