How to install Unity3D (Unity Hub) on a Chromebook - Revised Tutorial


Unfortunately, due to a change on Unity's side (the editor got updated), here is a revised tutorial:

Today we are looking at how to install Unity3D (Unity Hub) 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 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.

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 apt update
2) sudo apt install libgconf-2-4 libarchive13 mono-devel libnss3 flatpak
3) sudo flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
4) sudo flatpak install flathub com.unity.UnityHub

I created a past tutorial, where I showed how to install Unity, and the activation work, installing the editor, creating projects, but projects didn't launch.  I spend about 12 hours, over two days trying to fix it, and I finally found the fix, but I want to thank "Lucius" for telling me it does work and giving me tips, it gave me hope to continue to find a way to fix it.

All Currently Supported Chromebooks with LinuxApps (Crostini) support
