BL5 - Personal starter asking me to check privileges

On BL5-32bit of my old netbook, I manually installed Hibiscus, an online banking software.
I did this because the according PPA for the 32bit version of Hibiscus was not available anymore.
So, I downloaded the zip's of Jameica and Hibiscus (which is running as a plugin of Jameica),
unpacked both of them and moved the Hibiscus folder into the plugins folder of the Jameica folder.
Then I moved this resulting folder to...
...because this was the location, the PPA would have put the folder, too.

After that, to have a starter in the Menu, I created a personal application starter by means of the settings console.
In the first tab, I called the starter Hibiscus and pointed it to...
Then I added a symbol by pointing the starter to...
That's when the following messages appeared:
Creation of directory /var/lib/snapd/desktop/icons failed.
Check, if the privileges are set properly.
Creation of directory /usr/local/share/icons failed.
Check, if the privileges are set properly.

But it seems to be working anyway, because Hibiscus does start properly and the messages do not appear anywhere else.

But still, I wonder, what can do to prevent these messages from appearing, while creating a personal starter?

I wonder if the folders that the system claims failed ended up being created after all.
could you check in a file manager to see if these paths do actually exist?

I gave up pn BL5 and returned to BL 4.5.0-32bit.
But there I had a version conflict between the Jameica runtime and the Hibiscus plugin.
Because of the 32bit version of BL, the latest version of Hibiscus is not fully supported anymore, when the latest Jameica is installed.
A combination of the latest Jameica and the previous Hibiscus fixed this problem.

I see similar error messages when I just change an icon, but it always works anyway, so I've ignored those errors. But have wondered about them.

I will take a look at these issues sometime. I always make desktop files by hand so sorta ignore this "personal application launcher". But anyways I put this issue on my local todo list. Sooner or later Stefan or I will get to it.
