Device Tree Compiler, dtc, takes as input a device-tree in a given format and outputs a device-tree in another format for booting kernels on embedded systems. Typically, the input format is "dts", a human readable source format, and creates a "dtb", or binary format as output.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
