I can only open FreeCAD from terminal

Recently I installed FreeCAD from the Snap Store, but when it ended no shortcuts appeared on the desktop or in the application bar. It doesn't even appear in the search engine.

I can only open it in the terminal writing freecad. Is there a way to make it appear in the application bar or make a shortcut?

Just in case, my OS is Manjaro 20.0.3 "Lysia".

What does snap list provides from terminal? If shows freecad then run:
Use the proper name.

I tried, but I don't think it worked.


well, i don't know what to say as i don't use snap, as for freecad i prefer their provided appimage.

If snap isn't working you may use their appimage (recommended method), install via flatpak, or if you get desperate, build from the AUR. (Note: AUR building will take time so be patient.)
