@randynose no, you can, but the default software installation is done via snap. You can still install synaptic and install from the repos (or apt install from the terminal), but if you install software from the Ubuntu software centre app, you will get the snap version. At least that's my understanding. I ran into issues with darktable I think and then uninstalled Gimp and Inkscape and reinstalled them via apt. You might be get newer versions than the repo versions using snap but I don't care...
@randynose ... I'll go out to the project website to get the deb if I need the bleeding edge version. At least that's how I feel about it right now.
I was right, unfortunately.
