As an aside I spent an entire evening installing this and it's dependencies (from PKGBUILDs without a package helper!), some of which were flagged as out of date.

I could have saved myself a lot of time! After snap is installed you can now install snapcraft as a snap with

$ sudo snap install snapcraft --classic

You can also install lxd this way too.

Package fails to install with this error ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Probably didn't update the signature.

I need to add missing python packages:

pyxdg pysha3 pylxd

to run snapcraft init on a terminal

Building natively won't possibly work properly on arch. I suggest using LXD by default.

Please include this patch:

python-progressbar(2) is now in [community]. Please test the new packages in [community] (still in testing):

Everything should be compatible:

The following packages are dependencies: extra/python-xdg community/python-libarchive-c aur/python-debian

Could you add them to the PKGBUILD? I wasnt able to run snapcraft without them.

Is there any documentation on use Snapcraft on Arch? I have it installed but I cannot get my snap package to build. I keep getting the errors:

Could not find a required package in 'build-packages': "The cache has no package named 'name-of-my-required-package'"

I tried installing snapcraft again on another computer using pacaur instead of yaourt. I had a better experience. Snapcraft installed with no problems. Although, I did need to manually install the following packages in order for snapcraft to build my snap.

I was also missing the following python modules. These should probably be dependencies.


python-pymacarrons-pynacl I also had difficulty installing. I had to install the python-pynacl separately.

Additionally, I think the snapcraft version is behind. 2.15 is out.

I had problems installing the dependencies python-apt and python-petname.

The python-apt maintainers need to update the package version because upstream changed versions.

The python-petname is a split package. When yaourt tries to install it, yaourt tries to install both python3 and python2 versions, which are in conflict. I had to manually download the PKGBUILD, build the PKGBUILD and specify the python3 version to install with pacman -U.
