Ubuntu: Snap packages support for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS?



Question:

I am running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on an Atom Z3735f system.

I'm stuck with 14.04 because I have a custom kernel with patches in order to be able to have audio and WiFi support for this system, so I cannot upgrade to 16.04.

Is there any support for Snap packages for this version of Ubuntu?


Solution:1

snapd is available for 14.04 now via

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install snapd  

Please note that you want to enable -proposed if you are using a desktop image (see Snapd package conflicts with xorg packages for details).


Solution:2

I'm afraid not. Snaps are only available in Ubuntu 16.04 and snappy Ubuntu Core 16 (and snappy Ubuntu Core 15.04, but snaps have changed since then).

I assume you don't have patches for a newer (xenial) kernel?

Update as of 01/31/17: snapd and its dependencies are now available in 14.04, which means snaps can now run on 14.04.


Solution:3

You can use snapcraft.io

Repo:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:snappy-dev/tools  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install snapcraft
