I ran Ubuntu on my Chromebook for a while by using Chrubuntu and I really didn't like that I had to  dual boot or completely stop using Chrome OS which I like for many other simple tasks. There is much better method and here is it.

This is how to turn your Chromebook or Chromebox into a more usable Development computer with Sublime Text 2 without double booting.

The answer: Crouton.

1. Set your device to development mode.  (google it. It is different depending on your device)

2. Download the latest Crouton:  http://goo.gl/fd3zc

3. Open a shell with: CTRL + ALT + T

4. type: shell to go into a shell

5. Install a guest OS on the chroot:
sudo sh -e ~/Downloads/crouton -t xfce 

This will take about 20 minutes
Follow the prompts and set a root user and a password

6. Enter the chroot with: sudo enter-chroot

7. Now you can start your guess OS in the background :
sudo startxfce4 -b

To switch between Chrome OS and xfce use: CTRL + ALT + back(F1) then CTRL + ALT + Forward (F2) and then  CTRL + ALT + Reload (F3).

8. Install Sublime Text 2!!!! Yeeeeaaaahhh
Open a new shell and enter the chroot:   sudo enter-chroot

Then run the following commands to get dependencies and add the Sublime repo.

apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-2

sudo apt-get update

9. Finally run: 
sudo apt-get install sublime-text

after this you should be able to switch back to the chroot running xfce and Sublime should be available to run from a terminal (subl) or from the applications menu. 

Enjoy...... :-)

Thanks for the details. I already had crouton running, but would never have figured out Sublime Text without your post!
