Ubuntu Accomplishments requires a beta feature of snapd to operate correctly. To enable this feature, run the following before installing Ubuntu Accomplishments:
sudo snap set system experimental.user-daemons=true
The original Ubuntu Accomplishments was written by Jono Bacon and Stuart Langridge along with numerous trophy contributors. It has now been completely rewritten by Dani Llewellyn using Dart and Flutter. The trophies are handled by python scripts which are largely unchanged from their state as at the original project's disbandment in 2013 when Ubuntu One File Synchronisation service, which the system originally relied upon, went away.
Because we do not use a file synchronisation service any more you are free to choose your own, or even work without a synchronisation service for your trophy files. The trophies are saved to your home directory at $HOME/snap/ubuntu-accomplishments/common/trophies. You may add this folder to your preferred sync service such as Nextcloud or Dropbox to keep your trophies synchronised across your Ubuntu systems.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
