Installing snap on Fedora

Snap can be installed on Fedora from the command line:

$ sudo dnf install snapd

Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.

To enable classic snap support, enter the following to create a symbolic link between /var/lib/snapd/snap and /snap:

$ sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap

Fedora Silverblue implements a read-only root filesystem and, consequently, cannot allow the above symbolic link to be created. See the following associated GitHub issue for further details: Make it easier to link in or bind folders to root directory?
