1) 00:05 (time stamp in the video)
We start the process by enabling the Linux Container on our Chromebook.  You can always 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.

2) 00:36
Now we continue to the next phase in the tutorial and that is to run several commands in our Linux terminal, which will install our system to install the application.

During the installation process we will also upgrade our Linux container to Debian 12 Testing, applications like Menulibre doesn't work currently with it, but wew use an alterntive in this video.

Some general facts about the terminal.  To paste a command into the Linux terminal, press "Ctrl Shift v" together.  After you paste a command into the Linux terminal, please press "enter" to run it.  At some commands you will see a question to press Y or n to continue.  If you see it press "enter" to continue.

sudo touch /etc/apt/sources.list

2.3) 01:15 This command will add a repositoriy to our newly created file.

sudo echo deb bookworm main  | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

2.4) 01:22 Now we will update the repositories of our Linux container

sudo apt update

2.5) 01:36 Now we will upgrade our system to Debian 12 Testing.  The Y and n question will appear in this command, please press "enter" then. 

sudo apt dist-upgrade

2.6) 02:28 Now we will install some packages which the application requires.
