How to install Falkon Browser 3.0 on a Chromebook


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

Falkon is an open-source Qt-based Browser.

In the tutorial, we enable Linux Apps on our Chromebook, update the repositories (just of the Linux apps), and then install Falkon its dependencies.  Please follow the video/audio guide and find the commands used below.

Please take note that with the release of Chrome OS 89,  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.

Commands Used:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install falkon

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.  Please send us a comment on YouTube if you need assistance!
