Re: Linux Mint on Chromebook?

It will work on some, not on others. First question, is it an Intel based chromebook? Don't think it can be done on an ARM. I have Mint running on an Acer C720 chromebook, no dual boot, I removed Chrome entirely. Well my Acer C710 is near END OF LIFE (Oct 2017), and of course you can not download o...

Have you logged into and looked in Synaptic Package Manager ? Yes I have looked for anything that may lead me to the ClamTX or ClamAV GUI, but nada.
