I got the message about missing /snap/bin in the Path, but it is there.
Any ideas on how to proceed?
steve at SteveLaptop:~$ sudo snap install docker
Connect docker:firewall-control to core:firewall-control
Warning: /snap/bin was not found in your $PATH. If you've not
restarted your session since you
installed snapd, try doing that. Please see
https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/9469 for more
docker 18.06.1-ce from Canonical✓ installed
steve at SteveLaptop:~$ echo $PATH
steve at SteveLaptop:~$ snap version
steve at SteveLaptop:~$ cat /etc/os-release
VERSION="19.04 (Disco Dingo)"
steve at SteveLaptop:~$ ps
PID TTY TIME CMD
2746 pts/0 00:00:00 bash
4469 pts/0 00:00:00 ps
And I can see the /snap/bin folder.
