Error finding driver jar file


I’m trying to run liquibase for the first time on a new system and I’m getting an error saying that:

Unexpected error running Liquibase: ‘/usr/share/java/mysql-connector-java-8.0.23.jar’ does not exist

The file does exist at that exact path. I’m on Ubuntu 20.10 and installed the snap version. Any ideas?


Please ignore. I was running the snap and forgot about the fact that snaps are sandboxed so I needed to add the jar file to my home directory and reference it that way.
