znc is an IRC proxy. It runs as a daemon and connects to IRC server,
then allows you to connect from a workstation and work as the user that
is logged in to the IRC server. After you disconnect, it maintains the
connection to the server. It acts like any normal IRC server, so you can
use any IRC client to connect to it.
Some of its features include support for multiple users, multiple clients,
and multiple IRC servers; playback buffers to catch up with what happened
while you were detached, SSL encryption, DCC proxying, and a plugin
interface with many plugins supporting other features.

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.
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:
