How can I run TntConnect on my Chromebook (Chrome OS)?

How can I run TntConnect on my Chromebook (Chrome OS)?

1)  Make sure you have an Intel-based Chromebook.

2) Turn on "Linux (beta)" in settings. (

3) Download CrossOver from the CodeWeavers website.

4) In your Downloads folder, right-click on the CrossOver.deb download and "Install with Linux".

5) Start the CrossOver app.

6) Click the big "Install Windows Software" button.

7)  Type in and choose "TntConnect".

8) Click "Install".

Note: CrossOver is supported by CodeWeavers.  Reach out to CodeWeavers if you run into an issue installing CrossOver and getting it running.

Here's a video released by CrossOver on September 2021: How to Install CrossOver 21 on Chrome OS.

I followed these instructions and was able to install TntConnect on CrossOver in Linux, however once I open the TntConnect program in CrossOver I cannot figure out how to connect to my database. Anyone know how to do this or have any tips?  Thanks!

Under the "File" menu, click on "Open".

@Steven, Yes the trial of Chrome is limited.  If you want to keep using TntConnect via CrossOver, you'll eventually have to buy CrossOver.

@Tyro, if you can get into the Linux development environment, maybe you can use this:
