Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Great guide, thanks! Is it also applicable to the Samsung Chromebook?

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Thanks! It should partially work on the Samsung ARM Chromebook as well -- Crouton automatically detects the architecture and downloads the correct OS. The one issue is that you can't use the CB-netinstall script, you'd have to read though the #! Repos and download all of the packages from the Debian ARM repos. If you'd like help with that, let me know here or in a PM, I'd be happy to help! smile

Best of luck!

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Thank you so much for this,

<solved>I keep hitting a wall when it gets to the waldorf netinstall script, mainly accepting the licence agreement of the intel pro wireless, I cannot click <Ok>. 'enter' does nothing. I'll keep at it.

< never mind> right arrow selects, follow prompts.

second, is there some trick to pasteing in the shell?

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

No problem! Pasting in the Chromebook's own shell is possible by tapping two fingers. Let me know if that doesn't work, or if I can help in any other way smile

Cheers!

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

to paste in terminal shell it is 'shift-ctrl-v' <-paste as plaintext

the double click only brings up web commands ie. reload, back.... inspect element. weird.

Thanks for your help Brandon_mn this is something I wanted to do with my chromebook since I bought it.

now to make a background with launch instructions

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Ah, sorry about that -- I have an add-on, Crosh Window, that adds some weird shortcuts (like the double tapping), and I assumed they were universal. That's what I get for assuming smile

And no problem! Glad I could help. If you do make a background with launch instructions, let me know and/or post it here, that'd be awesome to see!

Cheers!

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Hi, I have a cr48 that I wish to use it, but I don't think it can as in step 3 you said it might break the wifi. Is there any way to put it on Cr48?

p.s. I just tried it but I can't even complete step two, I enter the command and it said "can not open ~/Download/crouton" do I need to unzip?

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

is there a way around leaving #! to change network settings, or grab things from usb drives? Not a super big problem, but can be annoying.

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Yes, it works. I use my ChromeBook in CrunchBang daily. Some things may be more inconvenient, but most functions are there.

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

brandon_mn:

I just installed chromebang on my acer c7, but i have a few problems:
1. the nm-applet disappeared and I cant view the wireless connections in my area, how do i get it to work?
2. When I try to poweroff or reboot - it say standby and does nothing. When i run

sudo shutdown -h now

or

sudo shutdown -r now

i get the following:

(wheezy)av8n@localhost:~$ sudo shutdown -h now
[sudo] password for av8n: 
shutdown: /run/initctl: No such file or directory
init: /run/initctl: No such file or directory
(wheezy)av8n@localhost:~$ sudo shutdown -r now
shutdown: /run/initctl: No such file or directory
init: /run/initctl: No such file or directory
(wheezy)av8n@localhost:~$ 

How do i get it to reboot or poweroff?

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Brandon_mn:

Thanks for your help.

Instead of clicking logout, you can enter the following to get to chroot

 gdm-control --shutdown && openbox --exit

Type exit to exit chroot.

Then you can type:

sudo shutdown -h now 

or 

sudo shutdown -r now

to exit or reboot respectively.

Is it possible to use the F8, F9, and F10 to control volume on the acer c7? What key would you use to take a screenshot on the acer c7? There is no Prtsc.
