  1. this works so well and i have been using this for months now, thank you so much for letting me make music on my chromebook , much love!

  2. I have used the commands above and Audacity has loaded flawlessly and works fine. The commands loaded an old version of Audacity (2.2.2) even though a newer version (2.4.2) is released. Any idea how to get the newer version loaded on my Pixelbook Go ?
