I have successfully installed Ubuntu on Acer C7 Chromebook. I have used Ctrl+Alt+F1 (Ctrl+Alt+F3) to get from Chrome OS to Ubuntu Xfce. I loaded LibreOffice, etc. Went back out to Chrome and I can't get back into the Ubuntu Xfce install.

I am getting password errors. The keyboard switch does not work anymore. Using the terminal, I'm very new to Linux, I was able, a couple of times, to get into Xfce using:
sudo enter-chroot startxfce4.

Now it appears that I can't get past the password thing. I know the password is correct.

I have nothing of importance installed. Do I need to wipe and reinstall? I used the howtogeek tutorial on How to Install Ubuntu Linux on Your Chromebook with Crouton.

I might seem stupid, but did you check the Verr. Num. key? (even if the little LED is on, it does not mean it works)

And also the keymap (if you're supposed to have a qwertz or azerty keyboard for example).

Try to write your password as username to check wether everything works as expected.
