GNOME Mines is a puzzle game where you search for hidden mines. Flag the
spaces with mines as quickly as possible to make the board a safer place. You
win the game when you’ve flagged every mine on the board. Be careful not to
trigger one, or the game is over!
You can select the size of the field you want to play on at the start of the
game. If you get stuck, you can ask for a hint: there’s a time penalty, but
that’s better than hitting a mine!
Enable snaps on Linux Mint and install GNOME Mines
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu.
On Linux Mint 20, /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref needs to be removed before Snap can be installed. This can be accomplished from the command line:
