snap package

Post by djcj » Sun Sep 16, 2018 10:59 am

Suggestion: what about providing a snap package? This could perhaps even replace the .deb and .rpm packages.

Here's a yaml file to build one for the current release: https://gist.github.com/darealshinji/62 ... 2ef916947f

However I can't get the start menu entry to work right now.

Snap is better than Appimage?

For some, maybe. The main difference is that snap is a system-agnostic package manager so snap has to be installed.

Please do either keep the .deb or think about flatpak (which is already included in Linux Mint). I'd not like to be forced to install snap besides the preinstalled flatpak just to use XnViewMP...
