How to install UTAU on a Chromebook


Due to backend changes,  this tutorial currently doedn't work.  I hope it will be fixed soon.  My aplogies for the inconveniences.  

Today we are looking at how to install UTAU 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.

This tutorial will only work on Chromebooks with an Intel or AMD CPU (with Linux Apps Support) and not those with an ARM64 architecture CPU.

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

Please take note that audio doesn't seem to work inside the application, unfortunately.  As well as the application only works in English, not in Japanese with this method.

Update: with the release of Chrome OS 96, the Linux container on a Chromebook has been upgraded to a newer version.  Because of this, we updated the commands to keep the tutorial relevant.  If you have any questions, please let us know on Youtube.
