I just picked up this device (Acer r11 Chromebook) a couple days ago. I installed Linux just fine using crouton (unity so xubuntu?) I have been trying to browse the web, specifically Udemy.com and Google Docs, as I got the rig to teach myself SQL and Data Querying. The Linux install went fine... except there are a couple problems that are preventing me from continuing:
1) When I use the NerSurf Web Browser, the app doesn't display Web pages correctly. Including this site, Ask Ubuntu and Udemy.com, I haven't tried Google docs yet but I imagine that would be even worse. Maybe there is a fix so I can still use NetSurf?
2) I am unable to download and install the proper version of another web browser, chrome.
I installed Linux from developer mode using the command: [sudo sh ~/Downloads/crouton -e -t unity] or something very close to that, after downloading the crouton file. I am posting this from my phone since the NetSurf app cannot display the human verification page correctly when I post this question from my Acer in the NetSurf app... pretty frustrating.
I have the file-roller app and even downloaded the chrome-linux.zip and extracted it... not sure how to install it from there. I ran the command wget dl.google.......stable_current_1386.deb as this one YouTube video demonstrated. The terminal then returned
Resolving dl.google....... Connecting to dl.google........ connected HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found 2017-07-31 08:51:41 ERROR 404 : Not Found.
The ... was actually text. The ........ represent where I shortened the output.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am a beginner with Linux but I do have limited experience with C++ and Python. Thanks
