This thread was flagged by a community member who thought it looked like spam. It was a mistake, and I shall moan at them privately.


Thanks daniel haha

This should be immensely helpful to a lot of those with issues with Snap on ChromeOS

Thanks a lot it’s very useful.
I tried it to install Rambox on my ChromeBox.
Everything was ok until the end but…sorry noob question…how do I launch Rambox after successful install ?
I can see it in snapd files installed.

The article’s down and the site hosting it is purchased by Namecheap, whoever that is. Is there a more up-to-date resource that could be provided?

I did all the steps relevant to my architecture.

try starting snapd manually, perhaps that helps:

$ sudo systemctl start --enable snapd


oops, yeah, the above is nonsense, sorry, try:

$ sudo systemctl  enable --now snapd

Tried that.
