How to easily install Inkscape 0.92 on a Chromebook


Today we are looking at how to install Inkscape 0.92 on a Chromebook.

Since the release of Chrome OS 80, the Linux Apps (Crostini) have been upgraded in Chromebooks, which also means the Linux Applications in the repository have been upgraded as well.

So in this video, we enable Linux Apps on our Chromebook, update the repository (just of the Linux apps) and then install Inkscape.  Please follow the video/audio guide and find the commands used below.

Please contact us if you need any assistance.

Commands Used:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install inkscape

Official Site:
https://inkscape.org/

We also created a video, on how to install the latest version of Inkscape via flatpak, look here.

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!

    I am trying to install inkscape and am getting this error after the first command:
    E: Type 'Generated' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
    E: The list of sources could not be read.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.
