It's not just government and military. I have access to a corporate bank account which requires a smart card (and Internet Explorer).

Wondering if there is anyone who can help. Had MS power query working till corporate pushed a new patch. The IT gurus went into my registry and did some adjustments to get it to work and we went into options to enable it. Although it is showing as active, it doesnt display on the ribbon. Can anyone help.

Nope. Don't think you understand. This is an COM add-on that adds another tab to the top toolbar that contains another full ribbon of options. However, the tab doesnt show--even though it is active.

If you are in the military, and own a CB, please go to the link below and voice your need for CAC access through chrome. This issue was first sited in other issues as far back as 2010 and they have still not found a fix.

Linux Mint on Chromebook.
So I have attempted to run Linux Mint MATE 17.1 from an SD card to my HP Haswell chromebook. WAY too slow. I would love to run it through crouton, but currently not an option. Has anyone heard of a faster method to run Mint? I have heard that USB 3.0 can be a difficult when running an OS. Is this true? OR...is there a way to run it in crouton?

Crouton up and working with Ubuntu Trusty. Now if only I could find someone who had a link to a complete list of instructions on how to get a cac reader working....MilitaryCac.com is extremely outdated, links to software on multiple sites outdated and nothing seems to want to install through the ubuntu software center. Any ideas???

Thanks. I will double check the forums. I also have an intel based processor. Continue to avoid ARM for just those issues.

 Haha, hope you didn't misunderstand me! I didn't meant to infer you wouldn't know what a boot disk was, I meant that you wouldn't be carrying it with you if you were travelling! Certainly my boot disk never leaves my drawer after installation :-)

reinstalled crouton since I wasnt able to do what I wanted to do with a USB. now I cant start the darn thing. I loaded trusty but when I type: sudo enter-chroot starttrusty it does nothing. Tried startubuntu and it did nothing. I fear I am just wasting my time again and will spend hours on workarounds to get a SMART card reader working.....only to have it all break when I get the next update. If only there was an easier way.
I am really frustrated as chromium developers have been working on smart card access for years but have gotten nowhere. I love my chromebook but it is useless without a CAC reader for military access
