Install Gnome 3.28 on top of Linux Mint 19.3 via snapd daemon

In meantime Snapd daemon might be installed on Linux Mint with no issues. So Gnome 3 Desktop installation is supposed to be done via "sudo snap installs" as quite straight forward procedure. Follow instructions bellow
run via CLI ( GnomeSDK is available as well )
Details regarding Snapd daemon might be seen at

$ sudo apt update

$ sudo apt upgrade
$ sudo apt install snapd 
$ reboot

At this point system should automatically enable all of the systemd services on Linux Mint that Snapd needs to function properly.

$ sudo snap install gnome-3-34-1804
$ sudo apt install gnome
$ sudo apt install gnome-shell
$ reboot ( or just re-login )
