Today, one of the people in charge of Canonical, Zygmunt Krynicki, Has had the pleasure of officially announcing that the new Snap packages are now available on other GNU / Linux distributions. The latest distribution you can use and in snap packages is Fedora.
Apparently the guys from Canonical have managed to bring snap packages to Fedora for those who don’t want to use Flatpak, Something similar to what the Fedora guys have done with Flatpak. The installation of the snap packages will be done through the COPR repository, a repository that must be enabled and then install the snapD 2.0.10 package, which will make the snap packages work in Fedora.
Fedora, Debian and Arch Linux can now use snap packages in their distributions
But Fedora isn’t the only distribution it’s incorporated and into snap packages. Over the past weekend, Arch Linux has also announced that its users have support for snap packages, A support that will make both derivative versions and Arch Linux itself can work with snap packages and all their virtues. To do this, the Arch Linux user only needs to run Pacman followed by the name “snapD” so the SnapD 2.0.10 installation will begin.
If we add to these distributions the Debian platform, we can say that snap packages are enabled for most users who use GNU / Linux on their computers. Something we didn’t expect in such a short period of time. However, we must remember that snap packages still have a small spectrum, that is, they do not have as many applications as the old packages and the current repositories of major distributions.
Now you just have to OpenSUSE incorporates snap packages into your distribution, Unknown topic at the moment, but at a slow pace, we may see snap packages in OpenSUSE before the end of the week.
