Xubuntu Snap Keepassx – Fix Snap Keepassxc Error udev_enumerate_scan Failed


I had installed keepassxc via snap, it worked fine but suddenly I get this error when I want to start it:

udev_enumerate_scan failed

thats the only error line, nothing else. I didnt find very much about that on stack or in other internet, just that it seems to have to do with snap rather than keepassxc.

xubuntu 16.04

The error most likely stems from the recent kernel update. I think there are two workarounds. In both cases you can first remove the keepassxc snap package with: sudo snap remove keepassxc

Then, either install the unofficial debian package (this is suggested in the open issue on GitHub: https://github.com/keepassxreboot/keepassxc/issues/1058)

Or, download the official AppImage. (Before running the AppImage, you have to make it executable: either by Right-Clicking on it, then Properties -> Permissions and checking "Allow executing file as program", or with command: chmod a+x KeePassXC-2.2.1-x86_64.AppImage See here for more info on AppImages: https://appimage.org/)
