Enable Snap support on Arch (Not recommended)
Hello all..

Due to a request from a few users I decided to write a guide on how to include Snap Support on Arch / XeroLinux. But please read below Disclaimer first before you do so.

Disclaimer :
Quote:Snap support was never intended to be used outside Ubuntu / Debian that package manager was created by Cannonical for their Distribution and subsidiaries. ThereforeĀ  I will not be held responsible for any damage you incur by doing it. You will be on your own. Keep that in mind.

With that out of the way, I would recommend you look for your apps on either Arch Repos, AUR or Flathub first since those are the package managers officially supported on XeroLinux / Arch, but if you still insist on doing it, Do it at your own risk ! here's how to do it, follow the guide step by step, if you didn't miss anything you will be well on your way to start using Snaps.

Step 1 : Install & enable snapd service

First things first, you will need to install snapd service and enable it. To do so please type the following commands in Terminal. Please report any issues to Snapd Upstream.

yay (or paru) -S --noconfirm snapd
sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket
sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.apparmor

Make sure to reboot the system after doing that for services to start correctly.

Step 2 : Install The Snap-Store

Once that's done, either start installing your snaps via sudo snap refresh && sudo snap install packagename commands or if you prefer to use a GUI App Store install the aforementioned Snap-Store via command below.

Install the Snap Store :
sudo snap install snap-store

This might take a while depending on your connection since it has to populate the massive database on first install, just be patient while it does that. Finally launch the store from the App-menu..

I hope this helps y'all...

I do try to help where I can, when I can.
I do this on my own, so I might notĀ have all the answers.
