How to install FL Studio 20 on a Chromebook in 2024 - Updated Tutorial


Today we are looking at how to install FL Studio 20 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.

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.

If you have any questions, please contact us via a YouTube comment and we would be happy to assist you!

Please take note that this is the trial version of FL Studio, but paid plans (if you own a copy of FL Studio) should also work.

Commands Used:
1) sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 
2) echo "deb https://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bullseye_chrome_os_made_simple.list

We mention in the video, that you can run Crossover for free if you do not want to/or can't afford the license fee.  It is a bit tricky but possible.  So to do this download the trial period of Crossover,  and install it, as seen in the video.  Use Crossover for the free trial period of two weeks.  After your two weeks are finished,  remove your Linux Apps in your system settings (you will lose all your Linux Apps and Linux Folder, in your file manager) and then turn it on again and set up Crossover and Fl Studio again.  We know it is not convenient, but it works!

As for the FL Studio 20 installer we use in the video.  We installed FL Studio on a Chromebook, and then exported it as a deb package, without changing anything about it.  So, if you choose to use this installer, you will agree with Crossover installation terms, the dependencies which FL Studio needs, and FL Studio 20
 agreements.  Nothing bad or illegal.
