How to enable audio input in Linux Apps, Crostini, on a Chromebook


Today we are looking at how to enable audio input for Linux Apps, Crostini, on a Chromebook.  We press "Ctrl, Alt, and t" together inside Google Chrome and then a terminal will open in a Chrome Tab, where we run the two commands below.  After that, we go and open Audacity to test it out, have a look at the installation tutorial below.  Please note that we need to make one adjustment in Audacity itself, which won't be needed for all programs but for Audacity, it is needed.  Enjoy!

Commands Used:
1) vmc stop termina
2) vmc start termina --enable-audio-capture
