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!

Please take note that with the release of Chrome OS 90,  the location of Linux Apps has been changed in the Chromebook’s settings.  Have a look at this tutorial, to see how to turn on Linux apps and then continue with the installation tutorial.

Download Link:

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