After installing discord as snap under Ubuntu 18.4 I see a lot of these message in dmesg as soon as I start discord:

PID2Process:
15446 = discord 2521 = (sd-pam) 2539 = gnome-keyring-daemon 2634 = ssh-agent

It spams up the kernel buffer. I'm not the first to notice that:

Sorry, never done anything with snaps before.

Actually got banned from Discord for pointing out how absolutely fucked their client is. My only advice to people is DO NOT USE DISCORD, or at least use an unofficial client .. that is, until they ban those too.

What you can do for now is just using the .deb client It works great for me.

And devnull... I tried to report an issue to them, it was a frustrating experience...

How they did this? By IP or username or what means "banned"?

I normally only use Mumble. But everyone always asks for Discord.

The client is running. I wonder why it's constantly trying to access the gnome key ring. Is there a way to turn that off?

Ironically debian is part of the problem, false sense of security. AFAIK the same telemetry applies to you anyway unless debian completely recompiled the client? Hit F12 to watch the console or look at your firewall.

Could it be because you enabled save password? Honestly don't know, didn't do that.

I think Discord just does it for whatever reason. If you install it normally via the package manager like nox, there is maybe no AppAmor profile for the application in this case.

I have not been able to determine any functional limitations so far. But Discord tries the calls every few seconds. And I wonder what they're good for. I haven't found anything useful on the net yet. Not a big problem, I guess. But annoying.

However, I would be interested to know why they banned you. That's a bit of a serious problem if that happens.
