Snap Store is a app store for Linux destro. By default snap store is not installed in Kali.Now I’m going to share a procedure which is worked for me.

Step 1 : Install Snap

Using terminal:

~$sudo apt update

~$ sudo apt install snap

But it shows something missing.To fix this, we need to execute another command.

~$ sudo apt --fix-broken install

Now again try to install Snap.

~$ sudo apt install Snap

It works! Time to go next step.

Step 2 : Install Snapd

To install Snapd follow the commands.

~$ sudo apt install snapd

Step 3 : Start and add the service to autoload

~$ sudo systemctl start snapd

~$ sudo systemctl enable snapd

Step 4 : Enable Systemd Unit

~$ systemctl start apparmor ~$ systemctl enable apparmor

Step 5 : Check it’s workable or not

Executing following command snap ‘core’ will be installed too if it’s not installed in system.

Now restart the system and try to download via snap.

If getting any error related to path just follow this instructions:
