Installing Linux apps on your Chromebook

Installing Linux apps on your Chromebook
By Paolo Amoroso • Issue #46 • View online
Hello,
Running Linux on your Chromebook unlocks access to a vast selection of advanced apps. Which expands the tasks you can already do on Chrome OS on the web and with Android apps.
But there’s a catch.
You first have to figure how to install Linux apps. Linux doesn’t have a centralized, canonical app store such as the Play Store for Android. Each Linux distribution comes with its own software package manager and quirks, including the Crostini Chrome OS subsystem based on Debian Linux.
The guide in this issue introduces the missing piece, installing Linux apps on your Chromebook.
