Hi Jerry,  :)

thanks so much for your reply.

They don't allow snapd service to run, that's the important part.

Well that´s great news.  :045:

So in other words:  LinuxLite 6.0 fluorite is snap-free; it won´t force me to use snaps.

So LinuxLite seems to be my primary candidate for a new installation.

Thanks again for your help and many greetings.

They're dependencies of important apps. If you try to remove them, you'll break your system. They don't allow snapd service to run, that's the important part.

Hi all,  :)

up till now I´ve been using Lubuntu as a resource-friendly OS. I´ve got 4 GB of RAM available; so I have to take that fact into account.
Yet it seems I cannot stay with this distro any longer when it finally reaches EOL next April.
Therefore I´m considering switching over to LinuxLite;)

The reason is the following:

Ubuntu and its official derivatives force snaps onto the user (with version 22.04). I have cause to avoid them.

Looking on LinuxLite´s package list at https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=lite&pkglist=true&version=6.0#pkglist I wouldn´t find any of the snap related packages other Ubuntu derivatives are using, which seems pretty good to me.

However I still found those 3 entries having the keyword "snap" in them:

• gir1.2-snapd-1:amd64 1.60-0ubuntu1
• libsnapd-glib1:amd64 1.60-0ubuntu1
• libsnappy1v5:amd64 1.1.8-1build3

My question would be:

What would that entail?
In other words: Is LinuxLite 6.0 fluorite snap-free?  ::)
It´s based on Ubuntu after all, right?

Thanks so much for your help in advance.

Many greetings
