We start the process by enabling the Linux Container on our Chromebook.  You can al
ways remove it again in the future as well if needed.

To enable it, we go to the settings of our Chromebook, inside of it, we click on the "Advance" option in the left panel, and then the "Developers" section. Then enable Linux from there as seen in the video.

Now we continue to the next phase in the tutorial and that is to run several commands in our Linux terminal, which will install Solitaire.
