snap (snapd) for Porteus?

Post#1 by Kulle » 13 Mar 2019, 09:00

The app store for Linux:
https://snapcraft.io/store
And if the distro supports snaps you can install program xyz from the snap store with a single command:
snap install xyz
Very easy and optimal for normal users !!
tome used snapd from Manjaro repo:
snap (snapd)
But snapd is also available for debian:
https://packages.debian.org/en/sid/snapd
Can Snapd also be used for Porteus?
Are there any new insights?

Just an idea like that. Why don't you try to run it with nemesis as snapd is available under arch linux:

Hi francois,
I downloaded from https://packages.debian.org:
snapd_2.21-2 + b1_amd64.deb
Then deb2xzm and run:
root@porteus:/home/guest# snap find chromium
error: cannot list snaps: cannot communicate with server: Get http://localhost/v2/find?q=chromium: dial unix /run/snapd-snap.socket: connect: no such file or directory
root@porteus:/home/guest# snap install midori
error: cannot communicate with server: Post http://localhost/v2/snaps/midori: dial unix /run/snapd-snap.socket: connect: no such file or directory
communication error!
