Run on Chromebook?

Asked by jeffharris on 2019-04-20

I have used Home Bank for years and I recently picked up a Chromebook for travel use. This particular machine (Samsung Chromebook 3) has support for running Linux apps natively. I was able to install Home Bank, but it was unresponsive. Has anyone else had any luck?

I am trying this on an Asus Chromebook, and have not been able to uncompress the file. Posted a seperate message.

I finally got it working. First, you need to add it to the terminal by adding the repository as stated on this page: https://launchpad.net/~mdoyen/+archive/ubuntu/homebank. This version ran on my machine with no problems. The second thing i needed to do was to pull the xhb file that has all my information. I previously did it with Dropbox, but that isn't well supported by Chromeos, so I added it to my Google drive and then shared it by right clicking on the Google Drive and select "Share with Linux". After this open Home Bank and open the file which will be at /mnt/chromeos/GoogleDrive/MyDrive/.

Is this still working? On ChromeOS I only get an older version of homebank running. The new version of homebank needs libc6 2.29. But on ChromeOS you only get libc6 2.24
