I have been able to successfully perform the upgrade, everything is working properly. Thank you so much for the effort, I use this program for the analysis of vegetation cover.

Now I understand, I didn't realize snapd would use /opt/snap! The opt/esa-snap directory is much better, and I've changed the .desktop names to ESA SNAP to further avoid confusion, especially since the SNAP Configuration icon looks a bit too generic.

I've included the files needed for the Configuration Optimiser to work. It will need to be run as root to change the java parameters, but for cach e and other it should work

Thank you for your escellent suggestions, I have included them as well. I appreciate it!

I also think it is a naming collision. Is it better to create a folder opt/esa-snap for example?

The icon is in jpg format and that is not supported by, see also the wiki. I have converted it to png and everything works properly now. I also added the wmclass to the desktop file: StartupWMClass=SNAP.

The Snap Configuration Optimiser probably won't work because the install4j folder has been deleted. I also deleted two desktop files in opt/snap that referred to this install4j folder. In this install4j folder there are many different icons and a confusing amount of desktop files. If this folder is indeed needed than it would be a good idea to clean things up.

This package is not related to snapd, it seems to be just an unfortunate naming collision.

I wasn't aware of the missing icon, I will get a fix out as soon as I find a good solution (suggestions always welcome)

I did not manage to install this program together with snapd (AUR). Without snapd, I was able to install it. In Activities Overview, Snap Desktop does not have an icon, but there is an icon in my panel after opening the program. Snap Configuration Optimiser does have an icon but it can't be opened. I am using GNOME 43.2
