  • Clueless Muggle Needs Counseling
    Note: when it comes to installing software, you mostly don't need to go and download the app from the website and install it, Linux have been using package manager, and software repos, it is what we call software stores, before even iPhone was found. If you don't find your software in the distro's repo, there is a great chance you will find it in FlatHub, or SnapCraft, or downloadable as Appimage. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago

  • Actually newbie-friendly Linux tutorials?
    About the installation issues, containerized apps are far less problematic for this there are two alternatives Flatpak and Snap, I personally prefer Flatpak, so I speak mostly for it, but apps installed from them would not give you issues after installation and even that is pretty easy too, you can just install Firefox, Chrome, Bottles(for easily manage Windows apps), VLC, Spotify, GIMP or whatever. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • I made a video comparing Yocto and Ubuntu Core for embedded Linux: what are your thoughts? [I work at Canonical]
    Yes you can do it on your own. However, you would have the limitation that you can't publish the kernel snap in the public store, so you would need an IoT App Store. Becase customizing uboot and dtb is not very intuitive for people who are not used to that, there's a paid service called "Device Enablement", where we handle the board for you, delivering a custom kernel matching a standard Ubuntu LTS. We create a... - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago

    Has anyone had any luck getting the SnapStore to work? I think the issue is locked down nature of the deck but I just want to see if anyone has found a good solution. - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • Are Snap Packages Vetted Before Submitted And Updated

  • Snap store seems like a hackathon project
    I don't know current goals with the Snap Store app and I doubt Canonical staff use it themselves. I mostly use only Snapcraft to look for new app or just an original app's website/repo directly. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Unable to find option to use multiple monitors
    Is available in Ubuntu Software or snap store ( , or as a flatpak. I use the snap version on Ubuntu, and the flatpak on fedora, although Fedora is very up to date with its rpm package anyway. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Can i install any app i want from a web browser on zorin os 16 ?
    If you're worried about what software you can get, check the repositories zorin uses flathub and snap store, you will find most apps you could want. If you can't find anything for some, google alternatives available on Linux. They are often times as good or even better than windows alternatives. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • So what now?
    Software center/snap store: Now most modern distros support flatpak and/or snap, both of which have a lot more choice in the closed-source department. Ubuntu's software "store" (the suitcase icon with an A on it) is the snap store, so you can access the snap catalog and install from there. Those apps are not maintained by Ubuntu however, so there's that, but they're run in a sandbox to protect your system. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

    The web interface of the Snap Store is a much better experience: - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • How are new package releases managed across different Linux distros?
    There are some alternatives to using the distro repositories...if the package is available as flatpak or snap you could use those packages. About advantages and disadvantages of flatpaks and snaps people love to argue but it's a way to get package updates independent of distro. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Is there a web or a way to check if certain app/software is supported in a linux distro?
    Other than looking in the software center on Pop_os when you install it you can also look at and which are two linux software repositories from which you can install apps/software. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
