chromebook-pixel-tableIf 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.

(Author) - I am currently attending college to receive my degree in Computer Science with a pipe dream to someday work at Google. I love everything about android and smartphones and always love learning more about them or anything else tech wise. I also love developing Android apps and learning new types of code in my spare time. My current devices I use are my LG Optimus G and Nexus 7, Pebble watch is still on the way.
