How to install Calmly Writer for Linux on Chromebooks

We have updated the Linux .deb packages of our native application to ensure compatibility with Chromebook, and have published a guide on how to install the application on Chromebooks.

As we know, Google is going to end the support of Chrome Apps. If you want to continue using Calmly Writer there are two options:

- Use the new Calmly Writer Desktop App:
- Use the Calmly Writer Web App, totally free:

No typewriter sound can be heard

I installed this application just for the type writer sound but I can't hear it now that it's installed, there's no sound. Please check what's wrong.

Does Calmly need to be purchased, or is there an option to purchase something about it? One website I went to said it cost $4.99 or was free but didn't say what the difference between the two versions was.

Won't open

Calmly Writer will no longer launch, even though I've used it for months. I purchased the software and used it for months, and now suddenly it has stopped opening for me. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, restarted my computer, etc. Nothing works.

Won't open

Every time I try to open Calmly Writer, it won't open, and when I hover over the app it just shows a tiny text box with the word "notice." I've tried restarting my computer, uninstalling and reinstalling the app, and updating Chrome, but nothing works.

Smart Punctuation

Does anyone know what the different options under the Smart Punctuation section of the Preferences does? (Besides auto-capitalization, that one is fairly obvious to me.)

Can I get a refund? (Selling My Chromebook)


Could you kindly offer me a refund? I do not know if I want to keep my Chromebook (considering returning to MacOS), therefore, may not be able to use this application. I've already put it for sale.

Thank you very much,

Auto-adjusting volume?

Hi, i basically love Calmly Writer but i'm currently having the problem where I have the typewriter sound option on because it does help me feel productive--but now, unlike previous uses, it's auto-adjusting the volume of youtube videos i have playing in the background. it basically lowers the volume of youtube by 25-ish% each time i hit a key stroke. I'm not sure if this is a Chromebook OS thing or a thing Calmly has but I really liked this product better when it didn't prioritize the sound of the keyboard ticks over my music. they BOTH help me focus! is there a way i can turn off this setting of prioritizing the typewriter sound over the music? I really don't want to have to turn it off...
