Linux Mint on Acer C7 Chromebook

Postby DevGate on Mon Jan 28, 2013 9:41 am

Does anyone know if anyone has come up with a script to install Linux Mint onto an Acer C7 Chromebook (Like the ChrUbuntu script but Linux Mint (preferably Cinnamon))? I know I CAN download and install Ubuntu and install Cinnamon over Unity but I'd rather have a Linux Mint install.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I want to know the same thing. Seems like one might just install cubuntu then the mint repos? Maybe there is a single command for installing the mint stuff once repos are installed like sudo apt-get install mint-cinnamon???

I once installed ubuntu on a PPC processor mac then installed mint menu and other miint .debs but that wazs when they both used gnome.
