This example is different to v_0.5.1 in that the #after: [desktop-gtk3]
line has been commented out and replaced with the entire desktop-gtk3:

If you get trouble
Tip: since specifying parts or a step name is not yet supported (as of March 2019) these won't work:
snapcraft clean andy-testsnap-py -s pull
snapcraft clean andy-testsnap-py
Install the snap locally
sudo snap install --devmode --dangerous *.snap

The packages for RHEL 8 and RHEL 7 are in each distribution’s respective Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository. The instructions for adding this repository diverge slightly between RHEL 8 and RHEL 7, which is why they’re listed separately below.
The EPEL repository can be added to RHEL 8 with the following command:
