Ubuntu: Snap packages support for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS?


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?


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).


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.


You can use snapcraft.io


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