Installing snaps without root access

So I’m planning on creating a guest account on my PC, and I’m just wondering if it’ll be possible to install Snaps without needing to use a root password.

If not, will it be implemented in the future?


yes, that has always been possible, if you do snap login with a valid store account you will not need sudo at all.

since “snap login” is interactive i’m not sure how feasible it is to be used with a guest account though (a properly configured guest accout most likely wipes all configuration changes on logout, so the snap login credentials would likely be gone again)


Hope there’ll be a way to do that in the future, especially on the GUI side, and without the need to login.
