Snap Store is an app store for Linux Destro. By default, the snap store is not installed in Kali. Now I’m going to share a procedure which is worked for me.
Step 1: Install Snap
~$sudo apt update
~$ 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 to the 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 the following command snap ‘core’ will be installed too if it’s not installed in the system.
~$ snap install hello-world
Now restart the system and try to download via snap.
If getting any error related to the path just follow these instructions:
After restarting the PC if Snap doesn’t work then need to edit the bash file. To do this follow the instructions.
Step 1: Edit Bash File
~$ gedit ~/.bashrc
Step 2: Add a new line and declare the path of snap
Save the bash file.
Step 3: Execute Bash.
~$ source ~/.bashrc
Restart the system and enjoy Snap.
