Installing the snap manually is inconvenient and doesn’t bring automatic updates, can you please upload it to the store?
Automatic uploads can be easily done via any CI using
snapcraft push once you’ve generated a key (via
snapcraft export-login snapcraft.login or
snapcraft export-login --snaps my-snap-name --channels edge -).
Well, +1 to that.
Although I would say, that good old raw installation (e.g. tar.gz) would yield more usable and universal/
Additional problem with snaps, flatpaks and AppImage - is that Obsidian, basically, runs sandboxed and I was yet unable to get fonts I want to be available in Obsidian. (Fonts are just tip of the iceberg, really).
Linux is very hackable, and since release archive is available for ARM, it would be incredible if release archive be available for x86/64, it wouldn’t be too much to ask.
I’ll +1 this one as well. Just had to figure out how to use the --dangerous option for snap to install Obsidian
Yes, please! It takes very little work given that you already support Linux!
Please release Obsidian as an official snap package and make it available through snapcraft.io.
Flatpak is not officially supported and currently (version 0.13.33) broken under Wayland.
AppImage does not provide any desktop integration whatsoever.
The link to the Linux (Snap) package on obsidian.md does not appear to be working.
The link is working for me as well.
I downloaded the
.snap file from the home page, and I could not install it. When I open it on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, the “Software” store app gets opened, and this error message is displayed: “Failed to install file: not supported”
I found solution.
Download snap file from official site
and install this file from command line
sudo snap install --dangerous /path_to_file
For additional context around the considerations of linux packaging and the release process for snaps and other packaging formats was discussed here previously as well.
