Enable snaps on Linux Mint and install offlineimap

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 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:

sudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref sudo apt update

To install snap from the Software Manager application, search for snapd and click Install.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:

sudo apt update sudo apt install snapd

Either restart your machine, or log out and in again, to complete the installation.
