How to install Blender 2.90 on a Chromebook


Today we are looking at how to install Blender 2.90 on a Chromebook.  Please follow the video/audio guide as a tutorial where we explain the process step by step and use the commands below.

You will notice that every time when starting Blender it will start with a grey screen, minimize and maximize the screen until it works, and then it works as expected.  This version of Blender is however slow on a Chromebook, so if you like to look at Blender 2.82a which is the last release that works really well or Blender 2.79 that works the best.

If you have any questions, please contact us via a YouTube comment and we would be happy to assist you!
