Users can install it via PPA or as Snap. So anyone can install it on all the Linux distros which supports Snap. There are lots of ways to install this app on Ubuntu or other Linux distros. Here I will be trying to give all those. You just need to choose the right one for your system.

How to Install Corebird Snap on Ubuntu and Other Linux Distros

Open the Terminal and run the following command to install this app as Snap on Ubuntu or any snap supported Linux distros:

sudo snap install corebird

In case of Ubuntu system, you need to install some additional packages which helps to solve some while opening a link in Snap apps on a non-Snap browser. Run the following command to install all those essential packages:

sudo apt install snapd-xdg-open

Flatpak and Flathub

At last, my suggestion is that try to avoid Snap installation if your internet connection is slow because it requires more than 122 MB data. In this case, follow the traditional one – install Corebird via PPA which will take only 2.2 MB data.
