through the last days I worked getting snapd running on Raspbian which is based on Debian 8 (jessie). I have initial packages for this available now and want to invite more people to help testing these packages on their raspbian systems.
The package archive currently only contains a
snapd package and nothing else. You can add it to your existing raspbian based system with:
PLEASE NOTE: This is not a official distribution of snapd. Its work-in-progress and should not be used on any production system.
$ sudo -s
$ cat << EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/snapd.list
deb https://mm.gravedo.de/raspbian/ jessie main
$ apt update
$ apt install -y snapd
Afterwards you have snapd installed on your system and can use it as normal. Please note that snapd on raspbian comes without any confinement at the moment.
/snap/bin is not added to the list of secure paths for
sudo so you have to provide the absolute path when running any snap command via
If you find any further issues please let me know.
