Install vim if you want the text-mode interface or vim-gtk if you want the GUI. Basically vim-gtk is the GUI version for anybody who doesn't want to install the Gnome2 libraries on which vim-gnome depends and doesn't like the 1990s style of vim-athena

Updating Chrubuntu will not harm the ChromeOS (Updating the kernel from a Crouton based install will mess everything up) Chrubuntu installs Ubuntu in a separate partition, much like a dual-boot setup that has Windows and Ubuntu in different partitions. So, updating Ubuntu won't do anything to the ChromeOS and vice versa. However, the Chrubuntu script ...

This is caused by the removal of the -remote command-line switch in Firefox 36. If you have Mozilla Firefox selected as your preferred browser in the Preferred Applications settings, the terminal (or, rather, exo-open) is still trying to use that obsolete switch, which confuses Firefox. See this bug report (bug #1429284) for more details. In any case, ...
