How can I install Linux Mint 15 Mate? It would be perfect for this pc, I use it and is far better then Ubuntu. Thanks.
Unfortunately, I could only get Linux Mint Debian Edition to boot on the C7. I was surprised that Mint 13 Mate failed to boot but have not tried versions 14 or 15 as a result.
Hi Barry,I have Chrbuntu working fine (well, with a couple of issues that are trivial) bit was wondering if anything broke when you tried pure Debian ? I'd rather have that than a "flavor".
The only thing I can report from memory is that "tap-to-click" was missing from Debian. I remember that because I quickly realized how much I depend on it!FYI, I think David Schneider has recently modified his Crouton script to support installing Debian.
Yes, he has - however it's more of a Debian-Ubuntu hybrid. I'd live pure Debian Wheezy or even something light weight like Crunchbang.Feel free to yell f you need a hand testing, etc.
Some sort of Franken-linux? That sounds ... disturbing.I was impressed with Wheezy LXDE on the C7, but really missed "tap-to-click." CrunchBang is definitely on my short list too!
How would I install one of these (preferably Crunchbang)? Any chance of getting an x64 version?
I would appreciate some pointers on what you did to get these distributions installed.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean here. I booted the live CD/DVD on another machine and used whatever means is provided by the distro (i.e. Ubiquity) to install the distro on partition #7 of my bootable usb media. My technique to create such media is documented here:http://chromebooklinux.blogspot.com/2013/03/installation-method.htmlBut for a simpler method, watch for my next post.
