datadir – cannot relocate blockchain data directory for bitcoin core on ubuntu (snap installation)


I have two drives (one SSD for OS and software – and one HDD for blockchain data). I recently tried the snap installation for bitcoin core and found out that you cannot choose directories outside of /home for bitcoin core.. the problem is that it does not find any directories for my HDD or other drives, partition, etc.. while they are accessible on my Operating system

I removed the snap installation and installed bitcoin-core in a different way to solve this issue.

one other possible solution would be to mount your drive (or partition or directories) to /home
or link them to /home
