[Freedombox-discuss] Snapshots module installation

I would like to ask for help with installing Snapshots (snapper) on
freedombox running on debian stretch.
When installing via plinth, I get following error:

Error installing application: ('snapshot', '', 'Creating config failed
(/sbin/chsnap not installed).
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/usr/share/plinth/actions/snapshot", line 161, in <module>
 File "/usr/share/plinth/actions/snapshot", line 157, in main
 File "/usr/share/plinth/actions/snapshot", line 61, in subcommand_setup
 subprocess.run(command, check=True)
 File "/usr/lib/python3.5/subprocess.py", line 398, in run
 output=stdout, stderr=stderr)
subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command \'[\'snapper\',
\'create-config\', \'/\']\' returned non-zero exit status 1

apt search chsnap doesn't return anything.
For snapper, it returns:
snapper/stable,now 0.4.1-3 amd64 [installed]

As per google, I see that this is probably bug with snapper itself - in
particular running on ext4 partitions.

So I don't know, if it is anything that can be solved within the
freedombox... Still, any comments are appreciated.
