GNU nano is an easy-to-use text editor originally designed as a replacement
for Pico, the ncurses-based editor from the non-free mailer package Pine
(itself now available under the Apache License as Alpine).
However, GNU nano also implements many features missing in Pico, including:
soft-wrapping of overlong lines
selecting text by holding Shift
interactive search and replace (with regular expression support)
a go-to line (and column) command
support for multiple file buffers
tab completion of filenames and search terms
toggling features while running
and full internationalization support
This snap is maintained by the Snapcrafters community and is not endorsed or officially maintained by the upstream developers.
Enable snaps on Linux Mint and install GNU nano (UNOFFICIAL)
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu.
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:
