I recently installed Ubuntu on my Chromebook C720. I installed it using Crouton, so it runs Chrome and Ubuntu side by side. I can switch between them with a hot key. For more information on my installation method, you can check out this article: http://www.howtogeek.com/162120/how-to-install-ubuntu-linux-on-your-chromebook-with-crouton/.

I recently ubdated my linux system (I believe it was to 14.04 Trusty). Anyway, now I can't get Ubuntu to run on my computer anymore since the update. I press ctr+alt+t to get the terminal on Chrome. Then I type shell and follow up with the command sudo startxfce4. And nothing. It presents with this error: EE: Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file. It also goes on to say: /usr/bin/xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused.

Does anyone have the slightest idea of what is going on here?


Yes if your having trouble usually doing ,

sudo sh ~/Downloads/crouton -n trusty -u 

and/or u can powerwash your Chromebook and reinstall again
