Ubuntu 18.04 - perhaps use snap packages?


I currently use ActivInspire on a laptop running Ubuntu 16.04, which whilst still supported is no longer the latest LTS release of the desktop.

I recognise that supporting linux presents a challenge to developers to support the latest version............ I was wondering whether there were any moves to provide a 'snap' package of ActivInspire? This would allow Promethean to create a single installer that works on all Linux based operating systems and reduce the effort involved for them.

    For those that don't know snaps are a package format made by the ubuntu creators

    Hi Adam, Any news about updating to 18.04? As I'm sure your developers know, snaps would be the way to go.

    Our school (and probably district) has switched over completely to Promethean from SmartBoard. I'm excited that you folks support Ubuntu.

    Hi David_G,

    Thanks for posting.

    We don't currently have any further updates regarding ActivInspire support for Ubuntu 18.04.
    I'll pass on your request to the current development tickets that we have for Ubuntu and the snap packages.

    Kind regards,
    Promethean Technical Support
