See my reply above, it outlines the steps for ChromeOS but can easily be adapted for Linux.

​Only do this if you are willing to mess up your Chromebook; this ​will not​ work on school Chromebooks

Setting up Linux

  • Make sure your Chromebook can access Linux. ​Go to settings-> advanced-> Developers-> Turn on Linux development environment.
  • Hit next a couple of times in the new popup window (don’t change any settings unless you know what you’re doing), wait for it to install.
  • Once it finishes, a big black console will pop up. Good. Your Chromebook isn’t destroyed yet.
  • Restart your Chromebook.
  • Open up the newly installed console, type sudo get-apt update -y, then hit enter. Wait for stuff to finish downloading/installing, then type sudo get-apt upgrade -y.
  • Close then open the console.

Installing text

  • Navigate to this link and hit “Add to Chrome”.

Installing a Desktop (for the goose)

​* Type sudo passwd root​, hit enter, and type your new (Linux) password.

  • Then run sudo apt-get install task-kde-desktop -y and wait.
  • If there aren’t any errors, skip this step. If there are errors, type ​cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ~/.xinitrc into the console and hit enter.
  • You can run startkde in case your desktop closes or something.

​​Installing wine (to install your goose)

​* Run sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386, press enter. If it asks you to press y to confirm, type y then hit enter.

  • Run wget -nc, press enter. If it asks you to press y to confirm, type y then hit enter.
  • ​Run sudo apt-key add winehq.key -y.
  • Run sudo apt update -y
  • Run sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

Installing a Linux file explorer (so you can find your goose later)

  • Run sudo apt update -y
  • Run sudo apt install nautilus -y
  • It should be in your apps tray, under the folder “Linux Apps” or something similar.

Now you can install goose boy

  • Download the Desktop Goose .exe
  • Run winecfg
  • Click the graphics tab, change the “Screen Resolution” slider until it looks the best.
  • Go into normal Chromebook files app, and drag the DesktopGoose v0.3.exe from the Downloads folder to the Linux files folder.
  • Run wine 'DesktopGoose v0.3.exe' (Change ’DesktopGoose v0.3 to whatever you need the installer).
  • Change the extract folder to ```C:, and click extract.

Running the desktop goose

  • Open the Chromebook files app, go to the Linux files folder. Click on the 3-dot-menu and enable “Show Hidden Files”.
  • Open the .wine folder, navigate to the drive_c folder.
  • Find the DesktopGoose v0.3 folder, open it.
  • Locate GooseDesktop.exe.
  • Now, you need to figure out your Linux username. Open the terminal up, and and there should be some text in green. Write down the part between the dollar symbol ($) and the @penguin. Let’s say, for the following steps, the mine is yourusername.
  • Now type (in the console) wine "/home/yourusername/.wine/drive_c/DesktopGoose v0.3/GooseDesktop.exe.
  • If Desktop Goose opens up, great! Move on to the section called “Making a shortcut”.
  • If it doesn’t, see the possible following fixes:
  • Run startkde
  • Make sure the folder name is correct (if you need help, leave a reply).
  • Or just shoot me a reply asking for help lol

Making a shortcut

  • Open file manager, make sure “Show hidden files” is turned on.
  • Navigate to ```Linux Files-> .local-> share-> applications-> wine-> Programs.
  • Open the folder for Desktop Goose (Should be named something like DesktopGoose v0.3).
  • 2 finger click the .desktop file, and click “Open with text”.
  • Replace the text that follows after Exec= with the complete file path (wine "/home/yourusername/.wine/drive_c/DesktopGoose v0.3/GooseDesktop.exe) you found earlier.
  • Hit ctrl-s to save, then close Text.
  • Now you can open up Desktop Goose from the app tray.

Edit: Formatting

What does the "" script in files\scripts\characters do?

So how would one code something similar to this? Like, which script does it impact and such?

So how compatible is this with Strive v1.0d? As far as I could tell (after a brief bit of skimming  over the code in N++), it shouldn't have anything game breaking, but I just wanted to make sure. 

It keeps crashing on Linux
