Hey all. I recently got a new Chromebook, and since it took me a while to figure out how to get the latest and greatest version of Mudlet running, figured I would share with the class.

Here's a quick guide for folks like me who benefit from a very simple step-by-step:

Enable Linux (beta) on your Chromebook.
Note: This may not be supported on older Chromebooks.
  1. At the bottom right, select the time.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Under "Linux (Beta)," select Turn On.
  4. Follow the steps on the screen. Setup can take 10 minutes or more.
Download the latest version of Mudlet.
  1. Open
  2. Click the Ubuntu tab and download the .tar file.
Install Mudlet.
  1. Extract the AppImage by opening Terminal and entering:

    Code: Select all

    tar -xvzf Mudlet-3.22.1-linux-x64.AppImage.tar
    Note: modify the above to reflect the file name of the version downloaded.
  2. Make the file executable:

    Code: Select all

    chmod u+x Mudlet.AppImage
  3. Execute Mudlet:

    Code: Select all

    Note: Do not close Terminal while Mudlet is running.

To load an existing profile, add the profile folder to ~/.config/mudlet/profiles. Make sure it is unzipped. It will then be available when you open Mudlet and Connect.
