I created a past tutorial, where I showed how to install Unity, and the activation work, installing the editor, creating projects, but projects didn't launch.  I spend about 12 hours, over two days trying to fix it, and I finally found the fix, but I want to thank "Lucius" for telling me it does work and giving me tips, it gave me hope to continue to find a way to fix it.

All Currently Supported Chromebooks with LinuxApps (Crostini) support

  1. I followed the steps mentioned above which got me so much closer to installing it on a Chromebook... buuuut when I click on Unity Hub, the window appears but there is no writing or buttons that appear in the window. It is completely blank except for the X to close the window.

    Thoughts?
