Is Pencil2D available for ChromeOS?


(Morgan Reed) #1

I know Pencil2D is made for Linux and some of the latest Chromebooks can run Linux apps, but is there a build made that will work for ChromeOS specifically? If not, would enough people use a Chromebook to justify the addition of a ChromeOS version?

@velocireed This has been asked in the past and the short answer is No, not natively.

You can try the linux AppImages we provide on the download page. However since Chromebook can run linux OS you could run a LIVE CD version of a supported linux distro (i.e Ubuntu) and then use Pencil2D with it.

Here’s a guide that can help you with the latter option:

@velocireed Hey, a new update on this. It seems Chromebooks will be officially supporting Linux apps very soon for most consumers, apparently it’s been possible ever since may via Project “Crostini”. Here are some articles to get you started on that!
