Hello Community,

is there a way to enable an offline mode for Google Music All Access on a Chromebook as on a smartphone?

And if not, I'm the only one with this wish?

You can download your music 2 times from the google play store, however you can copy that downloaded file to any other device as it just puts it into the downloads folder on the chromebook

So I've got four questions about Chromebooks,
1. Is there a site that sell the Chromebook 2 and ships to Iceland, or will I have to use some third party company? (It's not available in any store here as far as I know)
2. Should I wait till later this year to buy a Chromebook and see if any new ones come out?
3. Can I enable an international keyboard (Specifically Icelandic) on the Chromebook?
4. Is a Chromebook sufficient for school? My school already uses Drive exclusively so that shouldn't be a problem.

+Gabriel Ingimarsson  Just to answer your other questions.

1) Amazon has shipped to Norway so I can't imagine it will not to Iceland. I had to use a mail forwarding service as shipping a Chromebook to Norway threatens US national security.  One of my units died in transit and Amazon was great at replacing under warranty. So big shout out to Amazon on that front.
2) Following on from Osbourne's error many years ago no manufacturer tells you their product roadmap. Regardless of when or what you buy the risk is something better might emerge next week. 
3) I agree with +Baldur Magnússon there is no problem switching keyboards but the documentation is not great but the trick is you need to install it AND switch it on.
4) The suitability for school depends on your school and what you are studying. The biggest issue is the antiquated systems some schools use. Some still focus on only Windows and use downloads extensively in that case you have a problem. Other courses use specialist software which is just not simply not available eg. statistics in which case you have a problem.

I hope that helps.

Quick question, I'm trying to learn responsive Web design and have found that I can't resize the browser all the way. It stops at about half screen. Anyone else notice this.?

On sixty percent or so of the web pages that I open either from my tray or bookmarks bar, When I go to load them it says webpage unavailable, after I refresh it it opens fine. Is there something wrong with my hp 11?

My bookmarks on the bookmarks bar keeps disappearing, has anyone else come across this problem?  I have an Asus C200, but I imagine it's not an Asus problem but a Chrome problem?  I tried googling it, but I'm not finding this specific issue.

I will look into the syncing issue, that's probably what is doing it.  And yes, I do have a cat, I will question him if he has been sleeping on my chromebook when I get home.  :-P

Not necessarily Chromebook specific, but possibly ChromeOS. 

Is there a way to print your Google Play Music playlist(s) from Chrome? (app/extension??)

All of the sudden, I'm getting a white screen with the Chrome logo in the middle of it when my i5 Chromebox goes to sleep.  It just started happening within the last week and I'm guessing that it was included with the latest update.  (Running 35.0.1916.155 Stable)  

Any of you smart people have any ideas where this came from and how I might get rid of it?  I really preferred when my screens just went dark.  (I tried searching the community, but you can guess what kind of results I got searching for white and screen in this community!)

I just got the new Toshiba cb, its nice, I was able to get hdmi mirror going thanks to the Toshiba guys on here. Now for my question. I use the cb for my daily grind, however, I really seem to use rdesktop to my win 8.1 server. When on hdmi, it is super choppy. Any suggestions ? I know this has 2gb ram... Is that the issue? When I say hdmi, I tried mirror and as 2nd monitor, say choppy feel. I can still return this but I want a cb not a Windows or Mac laptop. If this is not beefy enough is there anything with 4gb ram?

Thanks again for the help

ok, tested with "enable swap 4000" and still some lag, not as bad with swap off but still not really that workable.  I am also using my internal network so no internet lag is causing this.  oh well, I am curious if others experience it.  I am using the MS remote desktop not the google chrome one.  I may try the google chrome one just to rule it out.

I'm using an Acer C720 on the latest beta channel 36.0.1985.98. My Chrome browser is set to US English, but the hotword "OK Google" for voice search does not appear, with the message "Not listening. Something went wrong". I tried already "Restart listening" provided in the message, but the hotword "OK Google" still does not work. I can still do voice search, nevertheless, by clicking the mic icon. How to make "OK Google" work?

I'm using an Acer C720 2MB.  When I use hangouts, my webcam video is really, really bad.  Barely usable.  If I use another web conferencing system, such as free.gotomeeting.com, it's totally fine.  Is there some setting in hangouts that could cause this, or some oddity in ChromeOS that I have perhaps mis-set?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks +Joseph Cappellino .  That setting does affect the video quality, but negligibly so in this case.  One notch down changes it slightly... maybe for the better... hard to say.   Two notches down and it becomes noticeably worse.  All the way down, and of course the video goes away completely.

Has anyone here ever done a full recovery on the Samsung series 3 Chromebox?

I have created the recovery usb. Booted into recovery. And inserted the USB drive. But nothing happens. Is something supposed to happen? Or does it just sit there for 2 hours and then tell you, "I am done now."?

I was assuming that when I attached the USB drive some sort of confirmation (or something) would be displayed.

+OMG! Chrome!

ChromeOS and freevpn.me

All,

For some time I've tried to get a working VPN on my Chromebook with little success. Occasionally I'll do a search to see if there's anything else in the field that might help me further my goal. Today I was reminded of freevpn.me and decided to give it a try.

It offers openvpn support with ChromeOS has. I downloaded the certificate bundle, copied out the appropriate certs and installed them on my Chromebook and put in the relevent username/password information. As far as I can tell, I have everything correct, but when I try to connect I immediately get an error. The only thing I can think is that they give the ip address but not a hostname (and it doesn't appear that the name given with a reverse dns lookup resolves when I try to look it up -- meaning there doesn't appear to be a known hostname). The field specifically asks for a hostname, which I would think is interchangeable. Perhaps not?

Anyway, has anyone else tried with any luck?

i see +Brian Johnson hope you work it out somehow or you can use openvpn on a supported router at home at least. It removes much of the pain of using VPN on an end device

Why do you do this to me Google?

Every time I have some sort of pop-up box (in this case I clicked on my followers) this always happens. I can't read anything. I tried to change some privacy settings and the same thing happens. I can't read anything and I'm unable to make myself private like I'd like to. It's all garble.

The background info is crystal clear, everything in the pop-up box is a garbling mess.

I just switched to the beta channel, and can confirm it resolved the blurry issue.

I'm not usually one for beta testing, I usually wait a month or two before updating my android phones. But I'll stay on this channel for a while and see what happens.

Grr.. Can't import CR2 images from Google Drive, I can upload them directly to Photos and Google Drive can display the photos, but you can't import CR2 images (Canon Raw format) directly from Google Drive to Photos, meaning I have to upload a gigabyte of data I've already uploaded, or perform off-line conversion to JPEG using a desktop PC. The image shows the same directory displayed in the Photos import dialogue on the left and the same directory shown in Google Drive. Does anyone know how to import CR2 images directly from Google Drive to Photos? I've already done the conversion and the re-upload so I don't need help on how to do that, just to see if there's a way you have tried and verified as being able to do this directly.

Android L will have RAW support so there's hope for Chrome OS yet.

Any ideas why I sometimes have trouble adding comments to a G+ post using a Samsung CB2? The 'share comment' button looks functional, but nothing actually gets posted. If I refresh the page, it seems to work most of the time.

+Sean Houlihane  Welcome to my world.  :)  The happens on Chromebook and on my Windows machine. I am convinced it is not our devices but Google+ itself.  The service is far from flawless.  I also have public posts that don't show up for hours, occasionally.  Also very frustrating.
