Installation Guide:

Following are the steps involved in installing beekeeper studio on Manjaro Linux:

Step 1: Clone the git repository of Snapd

In the first step, we will clone snapd git repository into our system. If you already have Snap installed and enabled on your system, you can jump to the installation of beekeeper studio (Step 6).

To clone Snapd’s git repository, execute the following command:

git clone

Step 2: Go to the Snapd directory

Now that Snapd’s git repository is cloned, go inside the snapd directory by using the following command:

cd snapd

Step 3: Build the snapd package

Now that we are inside the Snapd directory, we will now build the snapd package. To do that, issue the following command:

makepkg -si

Step 4: Enable Snapd socket

In the previous step, we successfully installed the snapd packet manager. To be able to use it, we first need to enable the snapd socket. This is the systemd unit whose job is to manage the main snap communication socket. This can be done by executing the following command:

sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket

Step 5: Enable Classic support

We have enabled the systemd unit, let’s now create a symbolic link between /var/lib/snapd/snap and /snap. This is how we will enable classic support. To do that, run the following command:

sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap

Step 6: Install beekeeper-studio

We are done with all the configurations of snap. Now we can go on with the installation of beekeeper studio. The command that will install it is mentioned below.

sudo snap install beekeeper-studio

This is the output you will see when beekeeper studio will start to install:

Once beekeeper studio is installed, you will see a confirmation message as your output like this:

To do that, you first need to spot the application on your system. Go to the Start menu and locate beekeeper studio among other applications. It will appear if the installation was successful.
