Q: I’m using PDF Studio on my Chromebook running Crostini, it crashes when opening files on the latest Chrome OS 78 update. How can I solve this issue?

A: The latest version of Crostini has removed some of the files needed for the graphical file managers available in Debian virtual machine interface. When launching the file browser dialog PDF Studio attempts to launch the system browser but is unable to due to these changes. To resolve the issue you will need to switch over to the PDF Studio built in file browser.

In PDF Studio, go to Preferences -> General and UNCHECK the “Use System File Dialog” option. This will revert to our standard more limited file chooser but will work because it does not rely on the Debian system integrations.
