I just loaded Linux on my Chromebook but after some minutes of installation I was unable to access the XFCE desktop environment. Whenever I strike CTRL+ALT+FORWARD ( Trying to switch to Linux) it shows a black screen asking me for "localhost login". The screen has " Developer Console" as it's heading. But whenever I typed in the username and password I used while configuring the Crouton it say " Login incorrect". I been reading many posts here but none of them help.
Am new to Linux but I want to start running it on my chromebook so I can be able to run some applications. You help will be so appreciated.
Thanks.

@dutchmandonpedro,

Whenever I strike CTRL+ALT+FORWARD

This puts you in the Development console on VT2, not where you want to be.

I was unable to access the XFCE desktop environment.

You'll need to login to your Google account, then press Ctrl+Alt+t to get a 'crosh' prompt, then type shell and press enter to get a bash shell prompt.

Then, to start your xfce session, enter: sudo startxfce4

When I put in ctrl alt forward it asks me for a login username, & I put chronos & it gives me an option to put in a command. What do I do from there cause I've tried so many things but it just dosent enter into the desktop.
What am I doing wrong can someone help please?

@Naiobi,

Don't use ctrl+alt+forward, that puts you on VT2 in the Developer Console.
Please follow the suggestion offered here: #2361 (comment)

Hope this helps,

@nighthawk15,

This issue is over two years old, is closed, and is not your issue so I'm not sure how you wandered in here, I guess it popped up in a Google search for some obscure reason.

However, for your issue please follow the wiki guide below:

It will help you determine if you have a crouton chroot installed and where the problem is.

Hope this helps,
