I'm trying to install Pico-8 onto my chromebook. I'm on the dev branch and have the linux beta enabled and downloaded the files. But I can not get them to install using command "sudo apt-get install pico-8";is this the wrong command?
Yeah, pico-8 isn't on apt... You have to buy it and download it here on the website/Humble.
If you have done that, and that's what you mean by having "downloaded the files" (although I have no idea how you can be on the dev branch of pico-8, as that's not publicly available), you don't have to install anything. Just run the binary you downloaded.
I have bought and downloaded it, and running the binary isn't working. I get error message "File type is not supported"
What I meant by being on the dev branch was I'm on the dev branch of ChromeOS
P.S. Sorry it took so long to reply! I've been super busy.
Edit: added P.S.
I actually managed to resolve this with a bit of help from elsewhere posting process:
Move unziped the program files into the "linux files" partition.
cd to the "pico-8" directory.
Then "sudo chmod +x pico8" this marks it as an executable.
Finally run it with "./pico8".
At the moment it doesn't run with sound.
Currently sound does not work for linux apps running on ChomeOs
I can confirm that sound now works since crostini added sound support. I can't seem to get a gamepad to work though, which is making me sad.
The gamepad works in html5gamepad.com so I know that the machine is seeing it. But if anybody has suggestions I'd love to hear them!
Hello! I know this is an old post, but I hope I can get an answer. I am doing all the things that sam-i-am said he did to run the exec, but when i type "./pico8", I get an error that says "cannnot execute binary file: Exec format error"
Any help would be appreciated!
