not OT "EOL" because of when the question was posted - even if it is closed for another reason, the close flag to close it as OT "EOL" should be declined
@user3140225 This one has also received an incorrect close vote. (I know you've already reviewed it; I'm replying to your message since it's very relevant.) Both are still in the queue.
not unclear, answered in a comment
Shouldn't this question just be answered with information from the linked Ubuntu Forums thread?

@Zanna That answer is incorrect. I checked all the WPS snap packages in the Software app and none of them have a Permissions button. The notepad-plus-plus snap package does have a clickable Permissions button, but WPS Office does not have one.

unclear, OP didn't respond to the useful suggestion
dupe or OT - bug
unclear, OP didn't respond to the comments asking for clarification by mchid and me. Probably the problem is with the bash script itself. May very well be a user-side problem, it seems the OP is not very used to .desktop launchers.
@Zanna The answer is probably somewhat useful, the new Ubuntu Software application (snap-store) allows the user to change various permissions for an installed snap application as described here.

@user3140225 you don't visit the general room, do you?
 
attempt to reply - Maybe it would be good to reject it with a custom message explicitly suggesting to post an answer.
Should this answer be expanded with more information from the comments?
no repro (maybe OT bug), see answer
seems not off-topic (maybe opinion-based, though probably not that either)
not really unclear, see the OP's self-answer

@jokerdino not very often. I've never chatted there actually. I just see what's going on there maybe once in a week. Why?

@user3140225 nothing, just checking stuff

@EliahKagan I used emsp and nbsp to "prettify" and replicate the message in text form.
I have already rolled back the edit which added code formatting.

@EliahKagan Agreed, but it seems to me the OP is referring to Timeshift, which is also available on Ubuntu 20.04. Not sure why they said "tried to look for a similar possibility in Ubuntu but I didn't find any". Anyway, I posted an answer with the installation instruction.
 
10:45 AM
There is a non-productive exchange going on below this question. Could any of the mods please remove the comments or move them to a chat (except one short comment I left for the OP to add clarifications, second one of the currently visible comments)? (cc @jokerdino @Zanna)
^^ in a related note, the question seems horribly unclear as of now (as right-clicking works differently in different parts of GNOME and the context-menu, whenever it appears, is different depending on which element the right-click is performed), but I would like to wait for some time for the OP to come up with more details.

Two accounts looks suspicious. How can I discuss my concern with mods? @Zanna @jokerdino
 
OT 14.04
 
@Kulfy Flag it

Let's see if I can explain what I feel in 500 characters :)

Autoflagging disabled until restart
 
@Natty tp
@jokerdino Flagged. Let me know if my suspicion was incorrect. (cc @Zanna)
How can I get history of my custom flags? I remember I flagged some suspicious accounts before and they were deleted.

@Kulfy good job :)
 
OT Debian + Author hasn't visited Ask Ubuntu for 7 years.
 
@Kulfy er... doesn't seem like there is a filter for that :/
 
OT Kali
 
@Zanna So my suspicion was right. ~90 reputation points were affected.
Thanks for looking into.
@Zanna Yeah. Wish I could at least export flag summary in CSV.
 
2:05 PM
User flagging history seems like it could be improved a lot
 
2:15 PM
Eh.. Was looking at declined flags. Got to know my spam flag on this post was declined and the post was deleted as spam.
 
@Kulfy I also flagged that as spam and my flag also got declined
 
2:35 PM
 
@Natty tp
@Zanna Ironically, post was deleted as spam. :\
@karel closed.
 
2:50 PM
@Kulfy yeah... after the many spam flags got declined, it got flagged for moderator attention and spam flagged by a mod
 
OT Mint
OT no-repro
 
3:08 PM
I guess it was not particularly obvious that the post was spam. Anyway, a few declined flags are not a problem
hehe I remember my first declined flag
 
😠
 
3:29 PM
@Zanna 1 downvote (which I believe is because of spam flag) makes sense.
And I just failed an audit. I voted to reopen considering the translation :|
 
@Kulfy Wow! That was a really tricky one!
 
I suspect that set of questions created a meta post.
I guessed wrong.
 
@user3140225 But I still "STOPPED, LOOKED and LISTENED" :)
@jokerdino The translations?
 
No, about flags disappearing from the flag count
 
3:41 PM
@jokerdino I witnessed disappearing of a review item.
 
Nice
 
OT hardware shopping recommendation
 
@Kulfy ugh that's a terrible audit. Sorry
 
I wish mods could audit the audits before they become an audit for reviewers. Or at least nullify the review.

Who was user1104694? Why their single vote deleted this answer?
 
@Kulfy it's the author - accounts were merged
 
Oh. I see. (actually I can't :/)
 
presumably they accidentally created another account because they lost their cookie, as happens to so many people
 
@Natty tp
 
@Kulfy Can't think of any other explanation for a situation like that, so when I found it I was confirming my expectation
 
6:30 PM
Doesn't AU needs registration for posting answers?
@Zanna I thought some mod resigned and deleted account silently :|
I was literally searching through all election results

@Natty tp
@Natty tp The version Natty saw (and that is stored in Sentinel) was NAA. The author since edited it to be an answer, though, so it should not be flagged or deleted.

@Natty fp Though it would be good for the question part to be posted separately as a question.
@Natty tp
@Kulfy Yes. I don't think that's really necessary. It's fine though. I'm not recommending editing it again. With or without the formatting made to look as it does in the dialog box, having it as as blockquote is better than having it as a code block.
@Natty fp Not reportable to Natty. This challenged the frame of the question (urging the OP to use something instead of GNOME Shell) and it was a wrong answer (following the given instructions would not achieve that in the slightest).
I think it's fine that it was deleted, though odd that it only got one downvote and I am alarmed that delete votes are cast more readily than downvotes. In any case, this is not a true positive as far as Natty is concerned (nor was the post actually NAA under the standards of any SE site including our own).

@Natty fp
@EliahKagan To be clear, frame challenging answers are fine here, it's the total wrongness that's the issue there. Also, frame challenging answers are not considered okay on all SE sites, but on sites that don't consider them okay, an answer to a question asking how to make something faster that urges to use a faster thing instead would likely not be considered a frame-challenging answer. I should probably not have used that phrase to describe that answer.
