Armhf snap on arm64 system


I’m running Ubuntu Server 20.04 64-bit on a raspberry pi 4, with openbox installed. I want to install Chromium 32-bit, but when I try I get the following error:

error: cannot install snap file: snap "chromium" supported architectures (armhf) are incompatible with this system (arm64)

I have already added the armhf architecture to dpkg. Is this supported and if so, what am I doing wrong?

Best regards, Marcus

This requires that the snap author marks the armhf snap as compatible with arm64. Most snap authors leave this at the default which requires the snap and system architectures to be the same.

is there any particular reason to not simply install the arm64 snap ?

I want to use Widevine together with Chromium, which is only available in armhf.
