I’m happy to report that we’re almost there. The current master carries an updated PKGBUILD. Once the code is checked out, you can:
makepkg --nocheck -i
This will build a
snapd-git package and install it.
We are still short of these 2 PRs:
Once these are merged, it will be possible to drop
--nocheck and the package will be ready for AUR.
Note, the updated package adds a symlink
/snap -> /var/lib/snapd/snap so that
--classic applications such as blender can work.
I’d be happy to hear about your results.
