I have no experience with it at all but below are the instructions for installing it on Linux Mint 20...You will also have to install what is called "snapd" AKA snaps since it is not included in Linux Mint natively...DAMIEN

On Linux Mint 20, /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref needs to be removed before Snap can be installed. This can be accomplished from the command line:

Copy and Paste the commands one at a time into your "terminal" and enter password when prompted.

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref

Code: Select all

sudo apt update

Code: Select all

sudo apt install snapd

Code: Select all

sudo snap install openhab
