Hi, taliano. What Linux distribution, exactly, have you installed? I'm assuming this is on a Chromebook (since you say you have it in parallel with Chrome OS), but is it in a chroot using Crouton, or is this a dual-booting computer?

Provide some more details, maybe we can help.

You might also want to check in over at It's the sister site to this one, so you don't need to create a new login or anything, but poking around there may lead to some answers.

Hi taliano and welcome to LQ.

I'm assuming this thread will eventually be moved to a technical forum.

The distribution here matters, there may or may not be a window manager and UI capabilities. Please update us as notKlaatu has suggested.
