Is chrubuntu dead?  I have tried many versions of ubuntu using the s9ryd script and it only produces a black screen after installation.

hello! i have one Acer C710-2487 and want install Chrubuntu, but i cant do it. Plz Help me!!!

Hi, I just installed #chrubuntu  in a SD card.
I tried to boot Ubuntu in my Samsung chromebook, but I got this warning:

WARNING: Booting from external media (USB/SD) has not been enabled. Refer to the developer-mode documentation for details

I enabled it from a console:
sudo crossystem dev_boot_usb=1

But if I reboot now and press CTRL+U  I just  get a beep, then a double beep and finally boots into ChromeOS ...

The SD card contains ChrUbuntu, I've checked that. Anyone knows how can I start Ubuntu? 

Hello, recently, I was able to get Xubuntu-15.04 to load on my samsung XE303C12, however besides the small graphical issues, I am unable to run the sound. If you'd like more info, like screen shots ect. respond with what you need. I've tried reinstall-force reload, and still nothing. ChromOS still boots with sound, but no go on Linux.


+Jay Lee  can you help me understand why after upgrading to 15.04 on my Samsung Chromebook I cannot see any network? from lshw -C network I just get a blank return. Not sure what to do. Thanks.

Thinking of getting a Toshiba Chromebook 2 and wanting to put Linux on it. I would rather just be 100% natively installed , or as close as can be anyway. Not real interested in the crouton method unless it's a last option.. Anyone have any success doing this on the Toshiba Chromebook? Warnings, thoughts and issues? Thanks

ugggh. I've spent quite a bit of time trying to Google clear instructions for noobs for installing Chrubuntu on a Chromebook. Installing Cruton is suuuper easy but I want to give Chrubuntu a try.

Specifically, I want to try installing linux on an SD card and booting from that. I just don't know enough about Linux to follow the instructions on GitHUB. I don't know what this means: sudo dd bs=4M if=/path/to/distro.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync

I don't know what path/to/distro.iso is, and I don't know what of=/dev/sdx means. 

I have cruton installed, so I should be able to use Ubuntu to create the image on my SD card if I could just figure some of these little things out.

Does anybody know of an up to date location for instructions regarding this? Something that doesn't assume I'm a Linux wizard? There are plenty of tutorials for dummies for Cruton but all the Chrubuntu stuff seems to assume I know what I'm doing.


does anyone know the wifi fix for chrubuntu (curl -L -O; sudo bash 9sgchs) because i have it on my acer c720 but it only works for the wifi i installed it on. if i try to connect to another one it doesnt work

FYI... Running the Chrubuntu installer from the current Dev channel doesn't work.  It always results in the error of "missing or damaged", specifically "No bootable kernel found on disk".  If I run Chrubuntu from the Stable channel and then come back and upgrade Chrome OS to the Dev channel it does work.

I am running Chrubuntu on my asus chromebox.
Recently, I tried to upgrade the linux kernel.
I can install the kernel without an issue.
However, the system still boot with the original kernel (3.8.11), not the newer version. I tried 3.14, 3.16, 3.17, 3.18. None of them worked. Does anyone ever successfully install the newer kernel?
