I just got it "working" by installing it with --devmode.

$ sudo snap install lsd --devmode

If that helps

I'm having the same issue on Ubuntu 18.04. Trying to install with --classic doesn't help:

mark@coachz:~$ sudo snap install lsd --classic
Warning: flag --classic ignored for strictly confined snap lsd

I have the same problem as the OP, but the problem does not go away with the "--classic" addition to the install command. (I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.2)

Hi @frankkusel and @marxjohnson ,

Thanks for the report!

I think I made some error in this commit -> 596d205
I move the confinement from strict to classic. Hoping to be able to remove the --classic option but it appear I was wrong...

I fix that ASAP.

I think I will end up by removing the package from snap and it will solve all the issues.
