Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), and the latest release, Linux Mint 19 (Tara).

You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu.


To install snap from the Software Manager application, search for snapd and click Install.

Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
