Have anybody tried some Chrome / Chromium OS? I tried CloudReady running from USB, but it randomly hangs/freezes for a few seconds/minutes.
Also tried some https://arnoldthebat.co.uk/ builds, but those even does not boot from USB. Just Caps Lock LED is blinking while the display is black.January 23, 2019 at 7:05 am #150200
This guide works for installing original Chrome OS, just the touchpad is not yet supported.February 24, 2019 at 12:04 am #150579
I tried Cloudready aswell but without Touchpad it is hardly usable.
Since Chrome OS is Linux based, isn’t there a way to use the drivers used for Ubuntu where they got the Touchpad to work in another thread?
If Touchscreen/Touchpad/Fingerprint/Tablet Mode Detection work, I might dump Windows or at least Dual Boot both.March 17, 2019 at 2:51 am #150827
I just tried FydeOS and it works better than CloudReady. Touchscreen and even Stylus work, however the Touchpad still doesn’t work even though you can try out a variety of touchpad drivers when setting up the system. Otherwise it is pretty much usable except for some smaller thingsMarch 19, 2019 at 7:25 am #150852
I still think that FydeOS is good, but ChromeOS is better, cause it is cleaner and does not contain unknown things like FydeOS does. I think that touchpad will not be supported until ChromeOS switch to kernel 4.19 or 5.0.July 18, 2019 at 3:57 pm #181374
Cloudready 75 uses Kernel 4.19 LTS. I tried it but the Touchpad still doesn’t work.August 21, 2019 at 9:00 pm #181533
Good news: Cloudready v76.4 has working touchpad, including two finger gestures such as scrolling and pinch to zoom. However the touchscreen doesn’t work.
