Impossible to get Kubuntu open on ChromeOS


Hi everyone,

I am currently a user of crouton under chromeOS. It worked "pretty" well for about two months but does not work anymore. When I open it, linux start normally but suddenly stop and give me this message:

Quote:
The following installation problem was detected
while trying to start KDE:

No write access to $HOME directory (/home/paul).

KDE is unable to start.
I already try this
Code:
sudo chown -R group:user /home/user
But I can not remember group and user name.

Thanks a lot

Your output shows the user as 'paul' unless you were just using that as an example? In the chown command the user is first, the group second and your example shows it reversed? If you can mount the partition Kubuntu is on using a Live CD, you can go to the /etc/group file in see a list of users.

I already tried sudo chown -R paul: paul /home/paul and it does not work.

ChromeOS is not sell with a CD player, and even if I try on a USB, I don't think it would work.

Thanks for helping anyway !

It has to work with a USB. Otherwise I'm not sure how you'd ever be able to install an operating system on it, if anything broke down. Try to boot with a live linux memory stick, ubuntu restore etc.
