  1. Great to see that snaps are available on multiple distros now, but for it to really take off by the masses, it would need to be accompanied by a GUI app for searching and installing apps, as novice users arent going to open the commandline and non-ubuntu distros arent likely to have .snap integration in their GUI app store. Presently a user can search for snaps on uappexplorer.com, but after downloading the .snap, you still have to go to the commandline to install it, so even if their was a simple GUI installer app like gdebi, that would a step in the right direction.

    • Ubuntu Software is a frontend to both the classic .deb archive and the Snap store.

      • its great to hear that ubuntu software has snap integration. unfortunately that doesnt help ubuntu flavours (e.g. ubuntu mate), ubuntu derivatives (e.g. linux mint), or non-ubuntu based distros that have snap integration, as “novice users arent going to open the commandline and non-ubuntu distros arent likely to have .snap integration in their GUI app store”. But i guess time will tell if they will, as arch has already added snapd to their official repo. Will ubuntu mate’s software boutique have both snap and deb installation of the same apps?
