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!

Commands Used:
1) sudo apt update
2) sudo dpkg -i waveform.deb
3) sudo apt -f install

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!
