Installing snap on Deepin


:warning: 15-Oct-2019: There are known issues when installing snapd on Deepin. We’ll update this page when we have a solution.

Snap can be installed by opening a terminal and typing a couple of commands.

Deepin’s terminal, also known as a command line, is called Deepin Terminal. It can be found in the launcher by searching for terminal.

After launching Deepin Terminal, enter the following to install snap:

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install snapd

Cannot run any program: trace/breakpoint triggered, errors
Snap documentation

Snap is totally borked on Deepin. Can’t connect any snap to network. Even the snap-store is broken. Since deepin is based on debian-stable, which limits access to modern apps, that’s a big deal. Can you please give an idea about when it will be fixed?


Thanks for letting us know about this. I’ll speak to the team and see if we can come up with a solution.
