I've recently had a request to release ARM64 builds for Joplin Desktop as a Snap package, following some recent advances in ARM64 hardware enablement on Linux.
As of today, there's an experiment ARM64 snap package for Joplin alongside my regular X64 package. I'm reasonably confident that it works after having some initial feedback, so thought I'd propose this to the world.
Unfortunately I can't test this myself directly, whereas I'd usually test the X64 releases at least manually first; I have to take on blind faith that the ARM64 packages are working (I.E, proven to build, unproven to run/execute). To this extent, they're experimental and might come with issues, so please let me know if you can, and remember, you can revert an update with
sudo snap revert joplin-desktop.
But how do you install the ARM64 snap in the first place? Exactly the same way as usual, either graphically via the app store if your distro supports it, or via
sudo snap install joplin-desktop, same as X64. The snap client will determine the correct version automatically.
Joplin-Desktop snap now has some experimental support for Raspberry Pi's, Chromebooks, and those fancy new Macbooks.
