  • BC4 install/run on Chromebook Linux just works

    Hi Scooter Software peeps

    This is just report that I have just installed BC4 on my Google Pixelbook Chromebook laptop.

    I had already enabled the newly supported Linux virtual machine.

    The install was easy. I downloaded BC4 64 bit deb file to the Linux folder in the file system.

    Then I ran the commands listed here: https://www.scootersoftware.com/down..._linux_install

    Then I type in bcompare in the terminal or click the icon in the app shelf.

    Bingo! BC4 loads and runs as it always has - and fingers crossed - always will.



    Thank you!

    Hello,

    Great to hear. Just in case the KB article moves or is updated, for the forum archive, I think these are the commands you are referencing, where you could replace the original wget with downloading the .deb directly from our Downloads webpage.

    For a Terminal Install:

    wget https://www.scootersoftware.com/bcom...3150_amd64.deb
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install gdebi-core
    sudo gdebi bcompare-4.2.6.23150_amd64.deb
