How to install Tracktion Wavefom Free on a Chromebook


Today we are looking at how to install Tracktion Waveform Free on a Chromebook.

As seen in the video below, we firstly enable Linux Apps on our system, then we need to register for free on their site, download the Waveform Linux installation package from the website and move the package from our Download folder to our Linux Apps folder.  After that, we change the name of the package to waverform.deb (for in case the name of the package change, the commands will still be the same,  and working) and then we install it on our system with the three commands below.  Enjoy!

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.
