Does trisquel run on many chromebooks? This link says the chromebook pixel (very high end) works but doesn't mention anything else. Are there any popular chromebooks that trisquel has no problems running on? If it works on a version of debian (not ubuntu bc i know they use non free drivers) would trisquel work on it? Do most/all google made chromebooks work? It appears samsung, acer and HP are popular does trisquel work on any of them?

I have wondered about this recently too

Trisquel won't run on any of the ARM-based (e.g. Exynos, NVIDIA)
Chromebooks as it is x86-only.

I believe you might have to change the BIOS settings to use "Developer
Mode" in order to delete Chrome OS and install Trisquel on the Chromebook.

There is a thread from last year on the Acer C7 model specifically:

Muhammed just posted a wiki page which might be worth reading/watching
for updates:

Search might help as well:

I edited that page today when I saw it linked in Jimmy's post. It looks (from the date next to my name) like I just posted it today, but it has been up since I noticed mYself's posts about Chromebooks probably a few months ago.

I added a link to this topic from that wiki page; Jimmy's question is an important one I think.
