Hi everyone,

I've just put some finishing touches on the Solarus 1.6 snap release.

If you're on Ubuntu, you can search for "Solarus" in the software center and install it from there. That's it!

For other distros, you need to first install snapd. It's probably as simple as sudo <yourPM> install snapd, but you can click the link for more info.

Once you have snapd installed, just run sudo snap install solarus and you'll be good to go!

Known bugs are listed here:

Please report any you find to that. Thanks!

If sound doesn't work: Open Ubuntu Software > Installed > Solarus [ver] > Permissions > Audio Channel and give it permission to run PulseAudio. (thanks latchk3y!)
RIP Aaron Swartz

By the way, here are some badges you could use:

Thanks! Theses images will be used in the upcoming new Solarus website.

Btw, I've posted Twitter and Facebook news about the snap!

I didn't know you made a Mastodon account for Solarus! Thanks!


I've installed Solarus through snap (on linux mint 19), and because of permissions, I can only access a few folders on my computer (home folder for example). Since all my data are stored into an external repertory (which is only linked into my home folder), I'd like to store games and future projects into this repertory. How can I allow this? I'm new to snap, I've read some snap doc, but if I want to allow such permissions, I should have to type:

sudo snap connect solarus:system-files

but I get this error: snap "solarus" has no plug named "system-files"
