Snap has no plug for removable-media


Snap has no plug for removable-media

Casual Listener

The Spotify snap cannot access files in /media or /mnt, as there is no plug 'removable-media' in the snap package. My music files are all in subdirectories of /mnt/md0, so this is very inconvenient.


Tested on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS "Bionic", with the latest Spotify snap version

I can certainly see how that is inconvenient for using Spotify to play your local music.


As an interim workaround, I would consider using a bind mount at a location that the snap app can read.

e.g. bindfs /mnt/md0 /home/user/Music
