Here we go, Picard on my Chromebook:
Runs actually well, everything seems to work, including fingerprinting and browser integration. It’s version 2.1.2 from Debian Buster, so a bit older already. But theoretically it should be possible to install a newer version.
To get this:
Enable the Linux mode as described in Set up Linux on your Chromebook - Chromebook Help
In the Linux terminal, install Picard with
sudo apt update
sudo apt install picard
To run Picard type
picard in the Linux terminal.
It does not seem to be possible to pin this to the task bar, but at least you can pin the Linux terminal there UPDATE: Actually “MusicBrainz Picard” does show up as an app after it was installed and can be started directly, without the need to always first start the Linux terminal.
To access files you need to copy them to the “Linux files” folder, which the file manager will show. You can also share additional folders with Linux in the Files app (in the folder’s context menu). Inside Picard the shared folder is then available under
The recently updated MusicBrainz app does provide some tagging functionality, but I must admit I have not tested this myself yet.
