Linux Mint on Samsung Chromebook
+1 received by user: 23
Just wondering if anyone has installed Linux Mint on their Samsung Series 3 Chromebook?
I installed Chrubuntu but I don't like Ubuntu and want Linux Mint. Problem is I'm a noob at Linux and not sure how to go about it.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the series 3 the ARMv7 CPU version of chromebook?
You need a distribution that supports your CPU or you'll never be able to boot - armv7 / armhf support is in debian, ubuntu, arch linux and some others too I think. Not sure about Linux Mint.

Ah yup I got ya.
I just found a site called distrowatch.com and there is no Linux Mint for ARM.
Thanks for your help.
