Simpler installation on Linux/chromebook?

edited February 17, 2022
Not Linux-literate, I have had problems previous times unpacking the Zotero program after it was downloaded, knowing what directory to put it in, and then running the install for Zotero.

This last time, I found a very simple implementation that uses a generic command to download and install an app.
Mind you, I am still mostly Linux illiterate, so perhaps I am overlooking some problem, but it is working great for me.

After you load Linux beta in your Chromebook settings, and get the terminal, copy each line separately and paste (cntrl-shift-v) in the terminal. Tap enter to run the line.

sudo apt update

sudo apt-get install zotero -y

that's it! I can't offer further support, so please don't ask.
