How to install Minecraft on a Chromebook


Today we are looking at how to install Minecraft on a Chromebook.

As seen in the video below, we firstly enable Linux Apps on our system, then we download the Minecraft.deb package from the website.  Then we move the package from our Download folder to our Linux Apps folder and lastly, we install it on our system with the three commands below.  Enjoy!

Download Link:
https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/download/alternative/

Commands Used:
1) sudo apt update
2) sudo dpkg -i Minecraft.deb
3) sudo apt -f install

Update:  In Chrome OS 83 Linux Apps has an option now, not seen in this video as it was recorded before Chrome OS 83, to choose a username for your Linux Apps,  it is completely optional and you can just press on the install option to continue, as seen in the video.
