Cannot run joplin

Hi, I used the recommend install via command line:

wget -O - | bash

And it successfully installed.

However, I cannot find the Joplin app via the normal applications viewer. And when I type "Joplin" in the command line, it gives me:

Command 'joplin' not found, but can be installed with:
sudo snap install joplin

This is for version 2.9.17. The snap store version is 2.3, which is outdated, so I chose to do it this way.

I do not believe this to be a bug, but rather 'user error' as a beginner linux user.

Any help greatly appreciated.

The install script installs the AppImage to:
