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

 "illUmiNations: Protecting Our Planet", . For all the conspiracy theorists out there.... This was a visual presentation title projected onto the side of the UN in preparation for the climate summit. So it is the illuminati who protect our planet?!? #illuminati #UnitedNations #falseflagNY #UN

switched back to developer mode....had everything working. Shut down. Turned it back on and there was an update icon in the system tray so I updated. Now I cant find the terminal icon in the launcher. Any ideas?

You guys have been very helpful.  Thanks again. Don't get me wrong, I love mint. I only wish I didn't have to use it on my chromebook.  It is required however because they don't authenticate military CAC cards in the chrome environment.

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?

So I am in Dev mode. I opened a terminal window and enabled the USB Boot using [sudo crossystem dev_boot_usb=1]. I rebooted, and attempted to hit Ctrl+U at scary start up screen and nothing. I waited till Chrome OS was up and running then hit Ctrl+U and nothing.
How do I get mint to work from my USB?

I have linux mint 17 MATE running on a sony vaio. Is there any way for me to push the iso to a thumb drive so I can use it on a Chromebook?

so many recommended UNetbootin, but it wouldnt install on my Mint laptop so I tried on my CB using Ubuntu. I could find it in the software install list, but [install] was greyed out.  Im lost.

So the chrome os is now launched across multiple manufacturers in multiple environments (education, businesses, personal, and military). Now how do we get chrome developers to work on secondary authentication through use of a smart card?

There is currently no DoD STIG for Chrome OS so I don't know where you got that it has been rolled out to Military. There is a STIG for Chrome browser, but I have never seen it used. There are some Bluetooth CAC readers out there.

These would be used to authenticate back to your home domain via Citrix and then goto web from there. To access a .mil site you have to be coming from a .mil domain. Keep in mind, at this time, you would never be able to use this locally to authenticate directly to a DoD wireless network ...you would have to come in thru Citrix.

I would expect there to eventually be a Chrome OS STIG.

Newb question. How do I boot from a live USB.  I attempted to follow instructions found online (legacy boot via SeaBIOS), but they didn't work.

1. Went to settings/help/more info and switched to dev channel
2. CTRL+ALT+T to enter crosh
3. sudo crossystem dev_boot_usb=1

Using HP14 Haswell.
Attempting to run linux mint from persistent usb.
