Just in case this can help another user, I run Moneydance on my home computer but sync to my chromebook.
It amazes me how well MD runs on java in a linux container on chromeos.
Syncing has specific issues:
- syncing with Dropbox failed. I was unable to get this to work.
- syncing with a shared google drive folder worked very well for me:
1. You must include the sync data in a google drive folder on your computer
2. On the chromebook use the Files app (not the Google Drive app) to select that folder, right click and share it with linux
3. When you set up Moneydance on the Chromebook select the now shared sync file for your data.
