Installing snap on Solus

If you’re running Solus 3 and above, you don’t need to do anything. Snap is already installed and ready to go.

On older versions of Solus, snap can be installed from the command line. Launch the terminal from the System Tools menu and enter the following:

sudo eopkg up
sudo eopkg install snapd

Additionally, enable and activate both the snapd socket and the snapd.apparmo services with the following commands:

sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket
sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.apparmor.service

Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.

The link for Solus 3 seems to be broken.

You’re absolutely right (now fixed) - thank you so much!

also to add, is sudo reboot needed still now?

I need to try this - it’s likely the paths won’t be updated without either logging out and back in again, or rebooting. I’ll update the text to make this clearer though - thanks!

Sure… I don’t have a solus installation currently, but probably sudo not needed.
