Hi Everyone, 

I have an Acer Chrombook 15 onto which I installed Ubuntu and unity using crouton. However, the apt-get command cannot be found. I am a total newbie here and am hoping that it is a simple fix. Can anyone help me resolve this?

I have an Acer C720 and I can't get startxfce4 to work anymore. This is what outputs:

So then I tried: 'sudo enter-chroot trusty', and then 'sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade,' and this was the result:

So I tried 'apt-get -f install' and got:

And so now I'm kinda tired. Trusty had been acting really horribly for the last few months, but now it just doesn't go. I would try to open applications, but they just wouldn't open, no error dialogue box or anything, just nothing happened. I kinda need linux to do my Python homework. 

Thank you!!

I also noticed that this directory tree exists and I don't know why. What the hell is it and why is it so huge? It's apparently some kind of recursive directory containing "Usr/local/chroots/trusty" for like 44-ish iterations. Does this happen every time I try to update crouton? 


/mnt/stateful_partition/crouton/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty/usr/local/chroots/trusty

My Acer c720 crashed yesterday. I've restored from backup before, but this time it isn't working. It gave me an error (something like "too many errors"; wish I'd written it down, but I closed out the shell and reopened it, deleting the msg). At any event, it did create the /chroots/trusty directory, which has 11 files in it. All file names start with ECRYPTFS... Now when I try to rerun the restore command, it says trusty "already has stuff in it". Ideas? I've powerwashed and tried again, and twice I've gotten to this point. Encrypted files, but restore halted. Hate to rebuild, though I'd like to think of that as a last resort. If I'm to delete those files, what exactly are the commands? I tried deleting trusty with RMDIR, but it says there are contents in it. What is the wildcard to delete all of them? Other solutions?

Have crouton on my Acer Chromebook. It's been working great; every now and then I have to update my chroot, but otherwise fine. I even have World of Warcraft running under Wine inside Ubuntu (using "precise" release). This morning, I turned it on but at the dev screen I was not able to press Ctrl+D to get in. Eventually, it ends up at the "missing OS" message. Any suggestions on getting back to normal without having to do a recovery?

Well, it ended up "fixing" itself somehow. I did turn it off an unplug it for a couple minutes, and when I turned it back on I was able to get back in with no problem. I wonder what the problem might have been. Maybe loose connection somewhere? Anyway, at least it's working now. Thank you for all the feedback.

As I still have to use Novell server I'd like to connect to them by using NCPFS. Well, this is outmoded, however, the only possibility with a chromebook!! Unfortunately, it does not work with Crouton due to permissions problems (ncpmount has to be installed as suid root - I did that -??). Has anyone experience with that? Would be great. Thank you.

I'll start with saying I'm new to Linux.  I played around with friend's installations years back, but never done my own.  
I've loaded Unity, just to see it, and I can't find the APT interface, or any software really.... 
What did I do wrong or where did they hide the menu button?

I installed all the things... I updated.. I double checked and rechecked my installations. I cannot get it to work with the chrome extension and now not even the keyboard commands to switch back and forth are working.. omg frustration! lol
I have an acer model. which commands in what order should I type to get this up and going. Now after changing it this last time the extension connects correctly but I cannot use the keyboard commands to go back to chrome and utilize it in a window.. so back to square one.

I'm new to Chrome OS... just got my new Pixel LS. 

Crouton is amazing... makes the Pixel a viable dev machine.  I've scoured the Github issues and the source code for clues, but there are a few things I can't figure.  Any help would be appreciated.

I have the extension installed, and set to HiDPI - and startunity works well, despite HiDPI scaling issues for the menus and windows.  LowDPI is not an option.  Ick.

1) I like starting in tabs (xiwi -T <app>), but it doesn't use any of my desktop settings... so I can't adjust the font sizes, etc.

On a trusty image with "-t unity,xiwi" the fonts for the menus, etc are quite large.  Too large.

On a trusty image with "-t unity, xiwi, extension" the fonts are crazy small.  Too small.

It's a nursery rhyme, but I'd love a clue as to how to get the fonts just right.

How does Xiwi pick it's font sizes and desktop settings for -T mode?

and...

2) I'd love to start a few core apps from my workflow with one script... Eg. xiwi -T gnome-terminal && xiwi -T subl

But I can't find a combo that can start several app tabs with a single script.

finally...

3) Apps (like subl) running in a Xiwi tab are super fast compared to an actual desktop.  Turning off window effects didn't matter.  I'd love to understand why this is true.

Any info would be like gold!  

Cheers.

More research and I figured out the font size issue... the -dpi setting in the xserverrc-local does work with "xiwi -T", and once I set the "-dpi 200x200" I got a decent font size.  Unfortunately that setting seems to have no effect in the full desktop.

Also, starting multiple xiwi tabs in a script was easy once I discovered the -b flag for enter-chroot.

Sublime Text 3 is significantly faster running in a xiwi tab, no question.

Hopefully someone finds this useful.

I've had crouton installed on my Asus Chromebook for several weeks. Every now and then the screen goes black. I'm not able to bring it back to life and have to reboot. Suggestions?

I just installed kubuntu through crouton on my daughters HP chromebook. that worked fine, but we are now unable to logon to chrome OS with our google accounts. The only suggestion would be a powerwash but that will remove crouton. Any solutions that i overlooked?

Okay, something funny is going on with the output though.
There is no 'xmethod: unity' possible so I think that 'unity' is a target/desktop that you installed. Also, the output should show the targets you specified with the '-t ...' option - 'unity' in this case and maybe others. Did you install the 'kde-desktop' yet?

Here's a typical 'croutonversion' output for one of mine:
   name: wheezy
   encrypted: no
   Entering /var/crouton/chroots/wheezy...
   crouton: version 1-20150423153254~master:2f55723c
   release: wheezy

   kernel: Linux localhost 3.8.11 #1 SMP Mon Apr 20 23:05:40 PDT 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux
   freon: yes

You may want to try that command again or try this other one to compare it with -

sudo enter-chroot croutonversion

Never the less, the important thing is - does it work?

Hey there Ariq here!.. 

So I'm sort of having an iptables problem...
I trying to get this thing to work -------> https://github.com/hacker404/Air-sslstrip-/blob/master/Air-ssl.sh
and I'm pretty sure the iptables is the problem....
So how would configure the iptables?...

ifconfig lo up
ifconfig at0 up &
sleep 1
ifconfig at0 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
ifconfig at0 mtu 1400
route add -net 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 gw 10.0.0.1
iptables --flush
iptables --table nat --flush
iptables --delete-chain
iptables --table nat --delete-chain
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p udp -j DNAT --to $gatewayip
iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
iptables --append FORWARD --in-interface at0 -j ACCEPT
iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING --out-interface $internet_interface -j MASQUERADE
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --destination-port 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 10000

Oh btw I'm running it without the bolded letters...
Thanks!

Hello Crouton Users! I just switched to Developer Mode to install Linux on my chromebook using crouton. I noticed that the xfce/linux/ubuntu that I've installed cannot actually ping my other machine within mt network.. Is there a workaround for that?
1
Maurice van Kruchten's profile photo
 
Hmm the internet connection is shared with chromeos. I can ping my devices connected to my local lan network in ubuntu. However iptables are very strict on chromeos, so not all ports will be open. For example being able to browse smb shares you need to open up some. See https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton/issues/1142#issuecomment-92858589 Just depends on what you need and which ports you need to be open.

Since you transitioned to freon, it could also be it is a bit slower. I didn't notice it, but I don't use gpu demanding tasks. On latest dev channel there are also some fixes pushed related to freon and swap, that could also be the issue on stable channel now. I don't think a powerwash will help, but you can of course always try.

So I just noticed that I can set the screen resolution to a higher setting than ideal. Don't know if this is new with Chrome OS 42 or not... The question is how do I get my chroot (xfce on 14.04) to run at this resolution... Any ideas?

So I'll answer my own question... You can force ubuntu to interpolate any resolution you want, using the xrandr command. 

I set up a bash script to make the changes (you could add it to your startup items if you want). 

Useful if you have an application that needs a bigger window than 1366 or 768... but remember it's not creating new pixels on your screen, just faking them.  :-)

run this command from a terminal or save it as a bash script and make it executable:
------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash

xrandr --output eDP1 --mode 1366x768 --panning 1537x864 --scale 1.125x1.125
-------------------------------------

I find 1.125 x magnification a nice balance of usability. 1.25 gets difficult.

Im running crouton off my SD Card, however half of the time when I close my lid, my SD Card automatically ejects. This means sometimes I get stuck with a black screen, other times I manage to exit Xfce but have to reboot to enter. I'm just wondering if theres a way to force my SD card to remain mounted? Thanks

So was successfully able to install Elementary OS on my Toshiba Chromebook 2 using the watson script     https://github.com/AldousP/MyDearWatson

Curios if anyone has done this, and if so how to get general things to work? Like volume/brightness control.

Also curious if there is a way to get this to work with crouton in a tab.

And lastly its been so long since I've use crouton that I have forgotten how to install actual google chrome and get flash working.

Any general tips or advice would be greatly appreciated, even if its general stuff I should do. For now I'm not going to mess with anything other than vlc and maybe a torrent client.
