Poedit Pro for Linux

Poedit Pro is now available for Linux as well — download it from Snap Store.

Poedit for Linux is packaged as a Snap, which is a portable format supported by most distributions. If you are using a modern version of Ubuntu, it is already built in; if not, you might need to install snapd first.

Due to snapd’s security sandboxing, some capabilities are not available to applications installed this way. To enable full functionality, including storing passwords or accessing files on removable medias, you need to give Poedit appropriate permissions. This can be done either in the Permissions tab in Software Center (on Ubuntu) or by running the following commands:

sudo snap connect poedit:password-manager-service
sudo snap connect poedit:removable-media
