Installing snap on CentOS
The EPEL repository can be added to your system with the following command:
$ sudo yum install epel-release
Snap can now be installed as follows:
$ sudo yum install snapd
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
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
Snap is now installed and ready to go! If you’re using a desktop, a great next step is to install the Snap Store app.
