Hey guys!

I am super new to all of this and am trying to figure out some programs I need for school on my HP Chromebook. I have to get JAMOVI and there is a way to do it on the Chromebook but first I have to get Flatpak and I don’t know what distro to use (I installed Linux beta and have the little terminal now). I just used this which seems like it installed flatpak without going through the set up guide and choosing a distro. I think it worked, does that mean I can install Jamovi now? Is this some kind of fancy work around or do I need to go back through the set up guide and try again?

I basically can't figure out if it worked or not. I got Google Earth Pro to install and run and it works great so that's giving me hope that Jamovi will work too but I think I just need some reassurance that I haven't totally screwed this up.

Also, this is my second time doing all of this because I think I messed it up the first time and it got all screwy so I powerwashed my laptop and started over. Figured this time I would try and ask someone who knows more than me.

Thank you and please help!
Lucy :)

hi lucy,

i'm not completely sure. i'd try following the instructions as they are. if you really get stuck, you can use the cloud version.

kind regards
