Tell us about yourself!
Well, you have a unique issue.One that I have no clue how to fix.I cannot help you.I must do the honorable thing, and fall on my sword like a Samurai.*Falls on sword*Seriously though, I have no clue how to help you. This honestly is an issue I have never encountered before. I am super sorry.
Runsudo edit-chroot -aand send me a screenshot of what it says.
Alright, well then.Held broken packages?Seems it's time to nuke it.Restart your computer, and when it says something like "ChromeOS is missing or damaged"hit the spacebar, and it should take your computer out of Developer Mode. This will destroy the broken packages keeping stuff from working. Then, retry this entire Instructible. It may not work, in which case you should retry my previous suggestions.
*Wilt*I know this is probably a bit frustrating, but thank you so much for being patient. We'll get it working!Ok, I have 2 possible fixes. Cross your fingers!First, try runningsudo sh ~/Downloads/crouton -u -n precise -t xiwiAnd then see if you can start it.If that doesn't work for you, trysudo rm /dev/dri/card0and thensudo mv /dev/dri/card1 /dev/dri/card0Tell me how that does for you!Note: If you copy and paste what I have typed, it will help make sure you don't accidentally mistype.
Send me some screenshots of the commands and the output.
Ok, so I am really sorry that it's being this much trouble for you, but that's how it goes with this stuff sometimes. My guess is something went wrong in the install but didn't pop up an error, so here's how I suggest you fix it. Runsudo delete-chroot preciseAfter it has finished, runsudo sh ~/Downloads/crouton -r precise -t xfceAfter this has done it's thing, the command to start Linux should be eithersudo startxfceORsudo startxfce4Try both commands to start Linux.Good luck!
Typeyand hit enter.
Instead ofsudo startxfce4trysudo startxfce
Are you certain you have crouton in your downloads folder?
Ok so you got it working?
That may have something to do with the -e command that you put in. Honestly, I have no idea what -e does, so try running the command without it and tell me what happens.
You seem to have left out a slash. Trysudo sh -e ~/Downloads/crouton
Hey man, I am really glad it helped you out. Enjoy!
