Linux installation problem on chromebook #782
I'm running a debian distro on a Pixelbook Go.
When following installation instructions from this page, I can't get the app to complete installation.
While the terminal runs, the app opens and an icon is placed in the shelf, but it's a penguin icon vs. the standard notes icon.
This has been running for ~10-min.
Once I stop the terminal (ctrl+C), the app also closes. The app icon is not added to my applications folder. The only way for me to re-open it is by opening terminal and executing the AppImage file again.
How can I get this to complete installation, and get the icon to permanently appear?
Unfortunately due to a recent update to the Electron packager that SN uses (electron-builder) the generated AppImage no longer includes the desktop integration portion.
There has been a discussion here: standardnotes/desktop#430
AppImageLauncher seems to be the recommended solution for this which you should be able to install; then reopen Standard Notes and you will be prompted if you would like to integrate it with your system.
Note I am not sure if the same applies for Chromebooks so please let us know if you have any issues with the above solution.
