How to install LibreSprite on a Chromebook


Today we are looking at how to install LibreSprite 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, then we install Flatpak and add the official flathub repository to our system.  Then with the last command, we install LibreSprite.   Then we go to the three URLs and disable the setting on the first page and enable the other two, to fix any display and mouse pointer issues.  Enjoy!

Commands Used:
1) sudo apt update
2) sudo apt install flatpak
3) sudo flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
4) sudo flatpak install flathub com.github.libresprite.LibreSprite

URLs:
1) chrome://flags/#crostini-gpu-support
2) chrome://flags/#exo-pointer-lock

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!
