I’ve seen a couple of forum posts which suggest that the Linux version works on Chromebook but I can’t find any detailed instructions on how to do it.
I’ve turned on and installed Linux beta on Chrome OS 79.
From the GDevelop website I downloaded the latest GDevelop 5 tar.gz file for linux installs.
I extracted the gz file to my default Linux files folder.
I renamed the extracted folder to gdevelop.
In the linux terminal I typed ls to make sure the gdevelop folder was listed.
Then in the linux terminal I tried installing gdevelop using
chmod +x ./gdevelop
Nothing happens. I don’t get an error message. Should there be a deb file to let me install it directly from my file folder? Would really like to get this working for a school setting. If anyone could help I’d appreciate it.
I believe this is all I have done after done everything you mentioned.
Did you install libconf-2-4? sudo apt-get install libgconf-2-4
If there is any dependency missing it should mention it though.
The terminal say nothing at all?
Thank you for you help.
Yes, I installed libconf-2-4 (forgot to mention that!)
I rebooted, opened the terminal again and entered chmod +x ./gdevelop
Then, I entered ./gdevelop
Received a message saying ./gdevelop is a directory
If I try ./gdevelop/gdevelop
I get “cannot execute binary file”.
This error either means you opened the wrong file (It doesn’t look like it) Or when you try to execute a file on the wrong architecture. You apparently downloaded a x64 bit version while you have a x32 or x86 computer. Find and download a x32 bits version of the file.
