I have had a problem with snap-store app on my raspberry pi. I installed it using these steps that I found on line in the command line:

sudo apt update sudo apt install snapd sudo reboot sudo snap install core sudo snap install snap-store

After I did these steps I used the command "snap-store" and after it loads and I search a package, such as quake2, it does not load and if at all. The packages do not have any thumbnails off to the side instead, in their place, is a gear logo like so:

I have found no articles or videos on the subject on any sort of thing like that. I think I have a deeper problem and need to know the commands to uninstall snap-store so I can try installing it again. I think I did it in the wrong order and that might have caused the problem.

Another thing is if I click on a package (quake2 or any other) it looks kike this:

  • I have found no videos on haw to fix snap-store also I can not load videos on the internet. (You'l see what I mean if you look at my other post about that)

  • Don't look for videos, look for articles. Articles are a lot easier to understand, and they are sometimes more correct. I have learned very little about raspberry pi from videos. Articles are where the answers usually are. Besides, the guy making the video usually learned how to do the process he is demonstrating by reading an article. Which "other post about that" ? Please include a link to it. Commented Nov 24, 2021 at 23:02
  • That's just the thing, I cant fined that either! I saw nothing.

  • Well see this. duckduckgo.com/… If none of these work, I believe you may have another, deeper issue. Commented Nov 24, 2021 at 23:37

Try installing snap-store with pi-apps. You install pi-apps by running wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Botspot/pi-apps/master/install | bash in a terminal. You also can directly get it from github here. https://github.com/Botspot/pi-apps After that, you need to launch pi-apps by running pi-apps in a teminal. Then, click on the 'all apps' button on the home launcher. Scroll down until you see the app called snap-store. enter image description here Select it and click the "install" button. (My gui looks different because I changed the theme. It still is raspberry pi os.)

  • This only helped a little but did not fix the problem.

  • How is pi-apps install different from the official one? To me it just sounds like adding possible issues with pi-apps to possible issues with snap itself. Commented Nov 25, 2021 at 10:47
  • Pi-Apps just runs the same terminal commands automatically that he would normally run manually. It just does them in the right order; there is less room for a mistake on his part. Commented Nov 25, 2021 at 16:26
