Installing snap on openSUSE
Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 15.x and Tumbleweed.
Older openSUSE releases: The snap daemon, snapd, is only built for currently supported distributions. As openSUSE 15.0 and 15.1 have reached the end of their support lifetime, these and older releases of openSUSE are no longer supported by snapd.
Add the repository
You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15.3 users, for example, can do this with the following command:
$ sudo zypper addrepo --refresh \ https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/system:/snappy/openSUSE_Leap_15.3 \ snappy ... Repository 'snappy' successfully added
openSUSE_Leap_15.3 for either
openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
$ sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
$ sudo zypper dup --from snappy
Snap can now be installed with the following:
$ sudo zypper install snapd
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or
source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Now enable and start the snapd service with the following command:
$ sudo systemctl enable --now snapd
Leap 15.3 and Tumbleweed users need to additionally run the following to enable and start the snapd.apparmor service:
$ sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.apparmor
At this point, we recommend restarting your machine. You now have snapd installed and ready to go.
If you don’t see the snapd update on your system, make sure the repository is refreshing correctly.
If it’s not, remove and re-add the repository with the following command (
--refresh is important), replacing openSUSE_Leap_15.3 with your specific version of openSUSE:
$ sudo zypper removerepo snappy $ sudo zypper addrepo --refresh \ https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/system:/snappy/openSUSE_Leap_15.3 \ snappy
