[ubuntu] Unable to use multipass with libvirt


Following the instructions I am unable to get multipass to work with libvirt. I am using Ubuntu 20.04 Desktop and I can confirm that I have libvirt-daemon-system installed. My user’s groups are “adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev lpadmin lxd sambashare wireshark libvirt docker”, and multipass is installed as follows: $ snap list Name Version Rev Tracking Publisher Notes multipass 1.3.0 2259 latest/stable canonical✓ – I have attempted to enable the libvirt driver, but then when I attempt to launch a machine I get an error: $ sudo multipass set local.driver=libvirt [sudo] password for bob: $ multipass get local.driver libvirt $ multipass launch ubuntu launch failed: Cannot connect to libvirtd: Failed to open file ‘/etc/libvirt/libvirt.conf’: Permission denied Please ensure libvirt is installed and running. Running the last command with sudo has no improvement. I’m presuming that this is due to the snap sandboxing of multipass. I have not tried installing the snap in classic mode (as that’s not indicated in the documentation). Can anyone advise please?
