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.

Hi
I have installed libnss3-dev and libgconf-2-4 is already installed however I can not get Postman to install. I have installed snapd however when i run sudo snap install postman i get the following error (running beta channel version 80, Debian 10 o a pixelbook)
sudo snap install postman
error: system does not fully support snapd: cannot mount squashfs image using “squashfs”: mount:
** /tmp/sanity-mountpoint-152466127: mount failed: Operation not permitted.**

Can anyone help here, really want to try and get Postman on my chromebook.
