Please forgive me if this is not the appropriate forum for this question.
I have recently replaced the Chrome OS in my Acer Chromebook 14 with ubuntu version 18.04.3. After the ubuntu install, I used the ubuntu software application to install Octave version 5.1.0 via the Snapstore. Octave installed and runs without a problem.
The issue I am having is my inability to access the /media directory from Octave. I can access the directory from ubuntu and ultimately get to a USB flash drive without difficulty, but whenever I cd to /media in Octave, I get a “Permission Denied” message.
I am a ubuntu novice, but it appears to me that the snap that installed Octave does not include the “removable-media” interface, and thus is preventing me from accessing the /media directory. The Octave snap interfaces are defined in /snap/octave/10/meta/snap.yaml which is mounted as “Read Only” and try as I might, I am unable to edit the file. I have tried all the usual remedies, sudo, chmod, chown, mount, etc.
Any guidance or insight in how to edit snap.yaml, or another solution on how I can access my USB flash drive from inside Octave would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks much for the help.
