Installing the new native app in ChromeOS

Heya, I can’t for the life of me find an easy guide to installing the native linux app on ChromeOS, was wondering if someone knows how to do that quickly?

Note: Someone who has actually used ChromeOS with Linux enabled please, have downloaded and moved to Linux files, don’t know how to get it to register in desktop. Don’t think it’s the same process as Ubuntu which seems widely documented.

So I basically followed the instructions here:

I installed libgconf-2-4 as noted in the instructions.

Additionally, I had to install libnss3-dev

I added the .desktop file to /usr/share/applications per the instructions and it shows up in the launcher.
