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.

Enable snapd

Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.

Snap can now be installed with the following:

sudo systemctl enable snapd sudo systemctl start snapd

Tumbleweed users also need to run the following:

sudo systemctl enable snapd.apparmor sudo systemctl start snapd.apparmor
