How to install Roblox Studio on a Chromebook in 2020 - Revised Tutorial


Update!  It is now possible to install Roblox (windows version) and Roblox Studio on a Chromebook.  However, you do need a powerful Chromebook for it to work.  Have a look here: 

Today we are looking at how to install Roblox Studio 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!

This tutorial is based on our video to install WineHQ.  This tutorial will only work on Chromebooks with an Intel or AMD CPU (with Linux Apps Support) and not those with an ARM64 architecture CPU and depending on your Chromebook's hardware it can be a bit laggy.

As seen in the video, please make sure that you have at least 8GB space in your Linux folder for Wine and Roblox.

Update: We changed the last command since creating the tutorial, that fixes an error which some community members experienced in the past.

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) wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
3) sudo apt-key add winehq.key

6) sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys DFA175A75104960E
