How to install Minecraft Bedrock Edition on a Chromebook


Today we are looking at how to install Minecraft Bedrock Edition 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.

If you have any questions, please contact us via a YouTube comment and we would be happy to assist you!

Please take note that with the release of Chrome OS 90,  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:
1) sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
2) sudo apt update
3) sudo apt install curl libc6-i386 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libegl1-mesa:i386 zlib1g:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libasound2:i386 libpulse0:i386
4) curl -L https://github.com/ChristopherHX/linux-packaging-scripts/releases/download/appimage/Minecraft_Bedrock_Launcher-x86_64.0.0.540.AppImage --output MC.AppImage

7) sudo apt install menulibre
8) menulibre

Please take note that after login into your Google account, you might be notified of a Samsung Galaxy S8 login.  The developer, not me, of the Minecraft Bedrock, explains it here.  It is nothing to be afraid of as you can see in the link below.

Please take note that this will only install the launcher you need to owe the game, you can buy it on an Android device on the same Google account
