Installing nutty using snap not working

every time i try to run sudo snap install nutty
i get an error error: cannot communicate with server: Post http://localhost/v2/snaps/nutty: dial unix /run/snapd.socket: connect: no such file or directory

any suggestions?

you did not give much info here … what OS/distro are you running ?

Im running Kali Linux on a virtual machine

i think kali does not autostart newly installed services for some reason, IIRC you want:

systemctl start apparmor
systemctl enable apparmor


sudo systemctl start snapd
sudo systemctl enable snapd

@degville, perhaps we could have a “how to install snapd on kali” in the install docs ? since this seems to be a common prob … (and googling for it only gets me horridly ad-overloaded pages with the solution)

wow it actually works, weird how it does not autostart services on kali, im new to the distro thats why. Thank you for your help though

I created this page: Installing snap on Kali Linux

However, Kali’s support for snaps is a bit disappointing. Users need to manually add /snap/bin to the path; desktop launchers are not picked up by the menu, and snapd doesn’t work on a Kali Live CD (an especially big issue for Kali since it’s often used straight from the live CD).
