I have tried running, with luna, or eos, or elementary, it does not seem to recognize repo. would it be possible to add to recognized repo list? If so thanks.

Elementary OS is based on Ubuntu so it may be possible to get Pantheon (the desktop environment part of Elementary) running in crouton via the Elementary PPAs. If someone can build a chroot with the x11 target and document the steps to build a usable Pantheon desktop (something like #220 (comment) ) that would help a ton.

I did it the other day when elementary shipped. It looks crappy on a Chromebook Pixel because it doesn't scale uniformly with text-scaling-factor.

Try this:

crouton -t touch -n elementary
sudo enter-chroot -n elementary
sudo apt-get install -y python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:elementary-os/stable
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:elementary-os/os-patches
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y elementary-desktop
sudo /usr/sbin/lightdm start

You can swap touch with x11 if you don't have a touchscreen. I can make a real target for this if people want one. It requires an x86 architecture (not ARM)

Thank you very much, I will try this now. For the second command line, I try this in elementary or in crosh?

The first two commands are in crosh. After that, you should be in your chroot.

If /usr/sbin/lightdm start isn't working, pantheon-desktop probably didn't install. Try running lines 2-8 again.

It worked it installs, but I it has gone to a black screen twice. Also is there a way to start it without entering chroot and then using last line.
Thank you, I will have to try to figure out why after 5 mins, it dims then 1 min later it goes black.

It runs on VT7, so you have to Ctrl+Alt+F7 (brightness up) to switch to
that terminal. ChromeOS doesn't seem to recognize your activity in
elementary, so you have to go back to VT1 from time-to-time to keep it from
falling asleep.

You could write a startgala script if you wanted to. Look in crouton's
chroot-bin for the implementation details of the other start scripts and
make the appropriate changes.

Glad you got it working. Sorry it took so long.

@dnschneid Sounds like it's usable enough to be a target. The packages only support precise on i386/amd64, so luckily there won't be a bajillion configurations to test.

Why? So far as I understand, both crouton and elementary default to the Precise branch, which is before Mir was rolled in. Moreover, I can't imagine ChromeOS switching any time soon - they don't seem to have much incentive to do so.

@dnschneid where is .xinitrc located in a crouton install of X11?

Or anyone else no? That has to be edited to be able to run xinit to boot elementary. Or at least as far as i can tell from different guides

Cool; you might want to add to the wiki. Also to note: you can just install the x11 or gtk-extra targets to get a smaller base without all of the xfce stuff.

Hey,

I was able to get elementary working using bradmont's guide and it works surprisingly well on my Acer c720p. Only issues I have so far are the mouse flickering and redshift not changing color temperature at all.

I for one think elementary would make an excellent target.

This was the most thorough and accurate guide I found:

Worked for me on a Toshiba Chromebook 2. It was pretty straightforward, but if it's not that difficult to add it as a target, even better. I personally prefer Pantheon over any other current desktop environment for linux.

I keep on getting this error on the last line
** (lightdm:4735): WARNING **: Failed to get list of logind seats: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1
I did
