Need help with Synaptic

Some days ago, I stated my problems with software store here and a lot of ppl suggested me to use synaptic so i downloaded it and found it quite useful. But the problem here is I couldn't search some famous apps like spotify and discord there. Are snaps and flatpaks not available in synaptic?

Synaptic is essentially an apt manager.
By definition, it cannot have other application managers such as Flatpak and SNAP.

I fixed the title for clarification.
Synaptic is not a download manager.


But one can always use:

aps can be downloaded and installed from here too


And from here as well. If you want Appimage.


Thankfully not.

Synaptic sticks to trusted and secure package management.


You could download spotify .deb package from here:

and Discord this way:

You may find the manual on Synaptic Package Manager helpful too!:

Or follow the instruction in this page to add PPA:

You will first need to configure our debian repository:

curl -sS | sudo apt-key add -

echo "deb stable non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list

Then you can install the Spotify client:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install spotify-client
