Installing snap on Kubuntu

If you’re running Kubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) or later, including Kubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and Kubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish), you don’t need to do anything. Snap is already installed and ready to go.

If you need to know which version of Kubuntu you’re running, select About System from KInfoCentre. Alternatively, from the command line, type lsb_release -a.

Versions of Kubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) don’t include snap by default, but snap can be installed from the command line as follows:

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install snapd
