Re: Snap-store not accessible

I usually compile software that I am not able to install using the apt install command in the terminal. I used the Snap Store when I was starting to use Linux, and at the time I didn't know anything about Linux. The Snap Store created several directories in my file system, and the files were difficu...

Re: Simulation on Raspberry Pi

Linux distributions will have a application store, and you would be able to install software using the term...
