beertools pro on a pixel slate chromebook

Post by jawsfree » Tue Nov 26, 2019 2:25 pm

I am pulling the trigger on a pixel slate, don't try and stop me, and was interested to see if I could run the Linux version on it. I will get the 8th Gen Core i5 version 8GB Ram 128GB storage. Has anyone had any success using on any chromebooks?

Thanks,

I can't answer your question about the Chromebook, but I can tell you that BTP runs fine on Linux. However, you should know that it looks like any future development has been abandoned. That latest Linux (Debian) version is 2.0.22 while Windows and Mac are up to 2.0.24. Last July I asked if there were any plans to update Linux as well, but I never got and answer.

Thanks ColoradoBrewer. I guess it might be time to look elsewhere for my brewing solutions. :(

Unfortunately the Linux version starting failing to build along with the other versions. The lapse in concurrency is a result of that and not a decision to drop support. However, the lack of interest in the Linux version makes is difficult to justify devoting significant resources to identifying and fixing the build problem; especially since version 2.0.22 seems to still be working for most users.
