Enable snaps on openSUSE and install Tusk

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 15.x and Tumbleweed.

You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15.2 users, for example, can do this with the following command:

sudo zypper addrepo --refresh snappy

Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.2 for openSUSE_Leap_15.1, openSUSE_Leap_15.0, or 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. Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:

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

Install Tusk

To install Tusk, simply use the following command:

sudo snap install tusk
