Enable snaps on openSUSE and install Wickr Pro

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:

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
