The article stated that they linked to a specially modified version of Ubuntu to be able to load it on the Chromebook. Standard Mint won't load.

Edit: Also there isn't a version of Mint at present to run on an ARM processor.

LMDE on Chromebook?????

Postby joemartin » Sun Jan 13, 2013 10:12 pm

Currently using Bodhi on Series 5 Chromebook. Bodhi and E17 are very good but would love to use LMDE. We have LMDE on desktop and that is our preferred distro. Has there been discussion on this topic? Thanks.

...
My read of the Acer C7 is that it has an
Intel 1.1GHz Celeron 847 processor.
Not ARM.

The Samsung does have an ARM processor.

There are some interesting YouTube videos on the Acer C7
and how to modify it.
Add RAM.
Swap to SSD.
