Snackbar InflateException

I was struggling because of studio complaining that Dialog is deprecated, so I went reading the documentation again, seems Toast is deprecated too. So I tried to migrate from Toast to Snackbar, but fail at the moment...I i added

implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:28.0.0'
implementation 'com.android.support:design:28.0.0'

to my gradle dependencies to get access to the classes needed from the docu.

I wrapped the original LinearLayout with a CoordinatorLayout changing my main layout to

<android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout
  android:id="@+id/myCoordinatorLayout"
  xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent">

  <LinearLayout
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:gravity="center">

    <FrameLayout
      android:layout_height="match_parent"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:orientation="vertical"
      android:id="@+id/shellView"
      android:padding="10dp">
   </FrameLayout>
</LinearLayout>
</android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout>

then, in onCreate of the MainActivity i retrieve a reference to that CoordinatorLayout

 coordinatorView = findViewById(R.id.myCoordinatorLayout);

later in onOptionsItemSelected, in one of the menu points I am debugging:

Snackbar mySnackbar = Snackbar.make(coordinatorView, "Launched import", Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG);
mySnackbar.show();

as soon as those 2 lines are in, the app crashes:

which xml file does it take? my main.xml has only 22 lines... and as displayed above, it has no buttons?? the centerview (shellview) is filled by a swappable Fragment that display the actual functionalty, it starts up with a simple TextView+EditView, so the Startupfragment can't be the culprit too, no buttons there....

so any ideas welcome on how to solve this!

as asked, i add the whole onOptionsItemSelected

@Override
public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item)
{
FragmentManager fm = getFragmentManager();
Log.d(TAG,"got item clicked "+item.getItemId());

switch (item.getItemId())
    {
  case R.id.menuLsbook:
    Log.d(TAG,"starting up ls book frag");
    LsBookFragment lbook = new LsBookFragment().shell(shell);
    lbook.show(fm, getResources().getString(R.string.mlsbook));
    Log.d(TAG,"ls book running");
    break;
  case R.id.menuShowKpl:
    Log.d(TAG,"starting up kpl frag");

    EditorFrag editorFrag = (EditorFrag) fm.findFragmentByTag(KPLFRAG);
      if(editorFrag == null)
      {
        editorFrag = new EditKplFrag().shell(shell);
      }
      fm.beginTransaction().replace(R.id.shellView,editorFrag,KPLFRAG).commit();
    Log.d(TAG,"kpl running");
    break;
        case R.id.menuShowJrl:
            Log.d(TAG,"starting up jrl frag");

            editorFrag = (EditorFrag) fm.findFragmentByTag(JRLFRAG);
            if(editorFrag == null)
            {
                editorFrag = new EditJrlFrag().shell(shell);
            }
            fm.beginTransaction().replace(R.id.shellView,editorFrag,JRLFRAG).commit();
            Log.d(TAG,"jrl running");
            break;
  case R.id.menu_import:
    Log.d(TAG,"selecting a source for importation of a new book book frag");
    ImportBookFragment ibook = new ImportBookFragment().shell(shell);
    //ibook.show(fm, getResources().getString(R.string.mlsbook));
    Log.d(TAG,"import book running");
    Snackbar mySnackbar = Snackbar.make(coordinatorView, "Launched import", Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG);
    mySnackbar.show();

    break;

  case R.id.menu_show_shell:
    Log.d(TAG,"starting shell frag");
    ShellFragment shellfrag = (ShellFragment) fm.findFragmentByTag(SHELLFRAG);
    if (shellfrag == null)
    {
      //Log.d(TAG, "no shell frag");
      shellfrag = new ShellFragment();
      shellfrag.callback(this);
      fm.beginTransaction().add(R.id.shellView, shellfrag, SHELLFRAG).commit();
      //Log.d(TAG, "shellfrag added");
      if(shell != null) shellfrag.shell(shell);
    }//if (shellfrag == null)
    shell = shellfrag.shell();
    Log.d(TAG,"shell displaying");
    break;


  case R.id.menu_settings:
            Log.d(TAG, "case is settings, creating intent");
            //Intent intent = new Intent();
            //intent.setClassName(this, "com.nohkumado.nohfibu.SettingsActivity");
            Intent intent = new Intent(this, SettingsActivity.class);
            startActivity(intent);
            //startActivityForResult(i, RESULT_SETTINGS);
            Log.d(TAG, "fired intent");
            break;
        case R.id.mabout:
            AboutDialogFragment about = new AboutDialogFragment();
            about.setVersion(new VersionCommand(shell).execute());
            about.show(fm, getResources().getString(R.string.mabout));
            break;
  case R.id.menu_manual:
    about = new AboutDialogFragment();
    about.setVersion(new VersionCommand(shell).execute());
    about.show(fm, getResources().getString(R.string.empty));
    break;
    }

    return true;
}

    Binary XML file line #41: Error inflating class
    android.widget.Button

    It's coming from Button class. However,

    Add:

    implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:28.0.0'
    

    To your build.gradle dependencies then try.

    You won't need :

    implementation 'com.android.support:coordinatorlayout:28.0.0-alpha1'
    

    Update: After checking your added codes, it seems like you are actually trying to show Fragments inside LinearLayout with shellView id. Change it to FrameLayout then it should work I hope.
