As we continue our Command Line series, we’re always on the lookout for ways to try new software and alternative methods for installing Linux applications. One common instance that comes up frequently is installing software from a repository other than the default Debian Buster that comes with Crostini Linux on Chrome OS. If you’ve tinkered […]

If you happen to be an outlier like myself that lives, for the most part, in the experimental channels of Chrome OS, chances are good that you run into a few hiccups from time to time with the software. My desktop is always in the Canary channel and receives updates on an almost daily basis. […]
In its current state, the Crostini project that brought Linux containers to Chrome OS still feels a bit rough around the edges. It has come a long way and it is viable for a number of use-cases but it isn’t without its shortcomings. One such deficiency is the fact that Crostini when installed, predetermines the […]
The Chrome OS team is rapidly working to brings more capabilities and stability to Linux apps on Chromebooks. Full GPU support is just beyond the horizon and while there is still much work to be done, developers are already working on bringing Crostini to some key older devices. At inception, it was made clear that […]
What a difference three years can make. In 2016, Google announced the addition of Android Apps to Chrome OS. While the path has been a long, frustrating one for many users, Google has doubled down on their once-fledgling desktop OS by continuing to encourage developers to create apps with Chromebooks and larger screens in mind. […]
This year’s Google I/O developer conference was chock full of awesome new goodies headed our way for Android, Google Assistant, Chrome OS and much more. Much of which, we will be covering over the next few days but don’t forget to tune in to the latest episode of The Chrome Cast for a quick roundup […]
On just about a daily basis, I check the Samsung Chromebook Pro to see if “Crostini” has finally been enabled to bring me the new evolution of Linux app support. Sadly, I have been disappointed at every attempt. For good reason, the Kaby Lake generation of processors from Intel has been at the center of […]
The Chromium developers have been very busy as of late bringing life to the Crostini Project that will give users the ability to run Linux apps “natively” on Chrome OS. While Linux on Chromebooks isn’t a new trick, the Crostini UI presents a clean, hack-free method to launch Linux apps from the terminal app that […]
Linux container development continues to plow forward with each day that goes by. More feverish than the entire Android app initiative for Chrome OS ever was, the Crostini project seems to introduce new features into the fold on what seems like a daily basis. If you haven’t kept up to date with all that is […]
So, earlier today Robby was showing me a Chromium commit that referenced enabling the Crostini UI by default on the Pixelbook. No surprise there as Google’s flagship has been the default testing ground for the Crostini Project and the implementation of Linux app containers for quite some time now.
Hopefully, you’ve been keeping track with all the updates coming down the line concerning the Crostini project: a new set of features bringing containered Linux apps to Chromebooks. Development is progressing rapidly, and we really feel that this could be one of the biggest developments for Chromebooks since their inception.
Another day, another Crostini feature comes to light. So far, we have the Linux Terminal installer, Files app integration, and Material Design cues already rounding out the Linux app experience. As we continue to uncover clues by the day, it seems development of the Crostini Project is full steam ahead today is no different. Each […]
