Webots is a free and open-source 3D robot simulator

Webots is a free and open-source 3D robot simulator. It allows you to create 3D simulation models of robots interacting with their environment through sensors and actuators. Libraries of robots, sensors, actuators and objects are provided, but you can create your own. Collision detections, rigid body dynamics and fluid dynamics rely on a modified version of the ODE physics engine. The robot controller programs can be written outside of Webots in C, C++, Python, ROS, Java or MATLAB using a simple API. Webots features a 3D web interface allowing you to publish simulations online.

Enable snaps on openSUSE and install Webots

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.

You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:

Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.0 for either openSUSE_Leap_42.3 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.

With the repository added, import its GPG key:

Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:

Snap can now be installed with the following:

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
