Hi,

 

I just tried again, and now it works... don't know why it wasn't working last week...

 

So here is the full process for those who want to know.

 

1- Install Linux on your chrome

If you have a Pixelbook it is pretty easy since you have Linux Built-in in your device. Go to Settings > Linux (Beta) and activate it. It may take a few minutes.

If you have another type of Chromebook, there are many tutorials to install Linux for your specific device. I suggest that you Google something like "How to install Linux on my [device name] Chromebook"

 

2. Install Java Developers Kit

Once you have installed Linux on your Chromebook, open your Terminal within your apps

Once the terminal is open, enter this command + ENTER

 

sudo apt-get install default-jdk

 

Note: this command is for those who use a Pixelbook running Linux Debian 9 Stretch. If you run another version of Linux, this command may be different.

 

3. Install Local Hubl Server

After that, you can follow the steps here: https://designers.hubspot.com/docs/tools/local-hubl-server 

 

Once you downloaded the files mentioned in the URL above, don't forget to move the local-hubl-server folder in your newly added "Linux files" directory:

Thank you for your answer dennis_e

 

Yes, I did some more research since I posted this topic and figured out my self that installing Linux would be the key.

 

Turns out that I have a Pixelbook with Crostini Built-in (Runs Linux Debian 9 Stretch)

 

I followed these steps to install Local HubL Server (https://designers.hubspot.com/docs/tools/local-hubl-server), but when I'm executing the command line on step 4:

 

./bin/local-hubl-server

 

I have this output: -bash:

 

./bin/local-hubl-server: Permission denied

 

For the record, I used this command line to install Java Development Kit sudo apt-get install default-jdk

 

The designer docs say that If I didn't have the proper java version installed it would prompt the download... and if I had the proper version my browser would prompt... since neither of those scenarios occurred I'm wondering what is wrong.

 

What does Permission denied mean?
