Chrome, Skype, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, VSCode Now Unofficially Available For Clear Linux


One of the common criticisms for those trying to use Clear Linux on the desktop is that it lacks easy access to proprietary packages like Google Chrome and Steam. There has been plumbing within its swupd package/bundle management system to support third-party repositories to expand the ecosystem and now we’re finally seeing that happen.

Last month it was noted Clear Linux has the changes in place to support third-party repositories with Clear Linux’s swupd albeit the documentation was admittedly lacking and no prominent third-party repositories at the time.
