How do I get rid of snaps?

I currently dont have any snap packages installed and I would like to keep it that way. I'm not a fan of their proprietary back end. If I remove the snapd will that also remove the snap store and as such I will stop seeing their packages in the software center?

Snap Store is only on Ubuntu directly. On Zorin is the Gnome Software Store with the Snap Plugin. But Yes, when you delete it, it will no longer shown in the Gnome Software Store. I deleted Snap too.

To do that open the Terminal an type:

  1. sudo systemctl stop snapd
  2. sudo systemctl disable snapd
  3. sudo apt purge snapd gnome-software-plugin-snap

Awesome! Thank you!
