Snaps can be used on all major Linux distributions, including Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian and Fedora.
Snap is pre-installed and ready to go on the following:
- Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS (Xenial Xerus) or later, including Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish).
- Most recognised Ubuntu flavours built on one of the above Ubuntu releases. An exception is Lubuntu.
- Solus 3 an above.
If you’re using a desktop, a great first step is to install the Snap Store app.
For distributions without snap pre-installed, use the links below for specific installation instructions.
