Installing snap on Arch Linux
On Arch Linux, snap can be installed from the Arch User Repository (AUR).
The manual build process is the Arch-supported install method for AUR packages, and you’ll need the prerequisites installed before you can install any AUR package. You can then install snap with the following:
$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/snapd.git $ cd snapd $ makepkg -si
Once installed, the systemd unit that manages the main snap communication socket needs to be enabled:
$ sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket
To enable classic snap support, enter the following to create a symbolic link between
$ sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap
