I am currently using Ubuntu 14.04 on an acer chromebook. I was using Ubuntu and running PlayonLinux with something uninstalling. I went to go back to Chrome OS to check if I was connected to the internet or not, but then when I went to go back into Ubuntu from Chrome, it wouldn't let me. So I tryed to get in through the crosh terminal and all that came up was:

Entering /mnt/stateful_partition/crouton/chroots/precise...
_XSERVTransSocketUNIXCreateListener: ...SocketCreateListener() failed
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: server already running
Fatal server error:
(EE) Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't already running(EE) 
Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support 
         at http://wiki.x.org
 for help. 
(EE) Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.1.log" for additional information.
(EE) Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.
XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":1"
      after 7 requests (7 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
Not unmounting /mnt/stateful_partition/crouton/chroots/precise as another instance is using it.

Could someone please help me get it back?


Open the Crosh in Chrome. Type shell then after you can see the green Chronoslocal thing, then you type this in:

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