How to install Nemo File Manager on a Chromebook

Today we are looking at how to install Nemo File Manager on a Chromebook.  Please follow the video/audio guide as a tutorial where we explain the process step by step and use the commands below.

In this tutorial, we firstly enable Linux Apps on our Chromebook, then we update the Linux Apps repositories, and we install Nemo and a terminal (to enable all the functions in Nemo) with the last command.  Enjoy!

Commands Used:
1) sudo apt update
2) sudo apt install nemo gnome-terminal

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!
