Installing snap on openSUSE
Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.
Add the repository
You first need to first add the snappy repository. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:
$ sudo zypper addrepo --refresh https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/system:/snappy/openSUSE_Leap_15.0 snappy ... Repository 'snappy' successfully added
openSUSE_Leap_15.0 for either
openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
$ sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
$ sudo zypper dup --from snappy
Snap can now be installed with the following:
$ sudo zypper install snapd
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or
source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start the snapd service with the following commands:
$ sudo systemctl enable snapd $ sudo systemctl start snapd
You now have snapd installed and ready to go:
$ snap version snap 2.36-lp150.1.1 snapd 2.36-lp150.1.1 series 16 opensuse-leap 15.0 kernel 4.12.14-lp150.11-default
If you don’t see the snapd update on your system, make sure the repository is refreshing correctly. If it’s not, remove and re-add the repository with the following command (–refresh is important):
sudo zypper removerepo snappy sudo zypper addrepo --refresh https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/system:/snappy/openSUSE_Leap_15.0 snappy
As above, replace openSUSE_Leap_15.0 with your specific version of openSUSE.
