Calibre on Acer Chromebook?

(SOLVED) hello does anyone know how to install Calibre on an Acer chromebook please?
I go to Linux terminal and paste in the calibre commands to install it but it keeps asking for a password and evidently it should not be a sing for a password?
thank you.

thank you.
You will need to use Crostini (Linux for ChromeOS) if your Acer chromebook supports it. Even then, there are ongoing issues with USB support for connecting an ereader. A Google search should find you more information. You can also check this thread from last year: Calibre on Chromebook Linux for some information, issues, etc.

Depending on the size of your local storage, this may be a pretty useless task.

You don't need crostini, ChromeOS is Linux (Gentoo)
But you have to compile Calibre yourself.

Thank you but do you know how to compile it or will it be too complicated?

Even if you do compile it there are still issues relating to USB support.

It all depends on the cpu in your Chromebook. Kovid's builds are for Intel architecture

Maybe, this is the installer https://download.calibre-ebook.com/linux-installer.sh
See here for the dependencies.

Btw, I don't know if it's possible to install programs that are not in the chrome store

If you do find problem(s) with USB, I suggest getting a Windows 10 laptop.

Normally you have to create a password during install.
