If your one of the few to have already received your Chromebook Pixel and we’re wanting to install Linux on it then this will be good news to you. Kernel patches have been submitted for the Chromebook Pixel but now on top of that Google has now told us exactly how to load it onto the Chromebook Pixel. Google’s Bill Richardson says that the Chromebook Pixel has been tuned up to allow user-provided custom bootloaders. There is one downside though. The version of Linux, Mint, that the Pixel supports does not support the touchscreen and trackpad because it leverages the stock kernel.
So if any of you out there are lucky enough to already have the Chromebook Pixel and are itching to load it with some custom software go ahead and do it to your heart’s content. Let us know in the comments how your little journey goes and what your overall thoughts of the Pixel are.
