    Default snap problem

    Hi there! I'm trying to use snap packages, but I only found this error:

    Code:
    error: cannot list snaps: cannot communicate with server: Get http://localhost/v2/find?q=gimp: dial unix /run/snapd.socket: connect: no such file or directory
    What's that?

    Default Re: snap problem

    Your error says that nothing exists at that web address...

    Possible causes...
    - Your app isn't installed or configured properly.
    - The app appears to rely on a web server. If a web server wasn't installed as part of your application, then you need to install(and run) a web server. If necessary, consult your documentation.
    - A newly installed app may not automatically start up required services (like a new web server). Either start manually, or if if you <know> the service will start automatically, you can re-boot.

    Since I don't know what your "snap" app is, I can't be more specific about your situation.

    I am currently testing Leap 42.2 in Virtualbox -before installing it on my main computer- and I can also confirm this error.

    Using the instructions at snapcraft.io for openSUSE (https://snapcraft.io/docs/core/install#opensuse) I have run the following commands to install snap:
    Code:
    sudo zypper addrepo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/system:/snappy/openSUSE_Leap_42.2/ snappy sudo zypper install snapd
    Then I tried to find the Krita snap with the following
    Code:
    snap find krita
    error: cannot list snaps: cannot communicate with server: Get http://localhost/v2/find?q=krita: dial unix /run/snapd.socket: connect: no such file or directory
    I searched Google trying to figure out what's going and came across this open bug on Launchpad
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/snappy/+bug/1605003

    Is there a way around this? Or are snaps currently unavailable in openSUSE?

    In my user case I need Krita as a snap because I will be using the Gnome desktop on Leap and I don't want to install all the KDE dependencies.
    Also I need the Hugo static site generator snap because Hugo (https://gohugo.io) is not available in the Yast repos (as far as I can tell).
