Installing PowerShell

I followed the instructions at snapcraft to install the PowerShell snap. When I started pwsh, I received the error

No usable version of libssl was found

The solution was to add openssl-1.0 via pacman

sudo pacman -S openssl-1.0

Therefore the complete instructions for installing the PowerShell snap on Manjaro 21.1 are:

sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket

sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap
  • Log out and back in again to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
sudo snap install powershell --classic

sudo pacman -S openssl-1.0

You can then run pwsh in Terminal or search for ‘PowerShell’ in your application menu.

For those not keen on snaps - there is always the AUR
