Crouton/Chromebook Setup Instructions and Preferences
# Setup guide for chromebook
# Crouton chroot comes with
# stripped down versions of the OS, so need to add a lot
# of applications
# Due to issues with the anaconda distribution
# and virtualenv, I am running two trusty/unity chroots
# one for data analysis work and one for development work
# I'll call the data chroot 'datatrusty' and the dev chroot
# 'devtrusty'
# Run these commands in Chrome OS terminal after downloading the crouton script
# This will setup your chroot and give it the appropriate name
sudo sh -e ~/Downloads/crouton -r trusty -t unity -n devtrusty
sudo sh -e ~/Downloads/crouton -r trusty -t unity -n datatrusty
# Enter your chroot, because you have two unity targets, you will need to specify
# which chroot you want to enter, you can do so as follows
sudo startunity -n <chrootname>
# I have enough room on my SD card to install the full ubuntu desktop, so while
# these applications are not necessarily needed, I like to have them
# run these for both chroots.
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-standard
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install synaptic
sudo apt-get install vim-gnome
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
sudo apt-get install git
# configure git global -
# For the datatrusty chroot I also installed these applications
sudo apt-get inatll r-base
# isntalled rStudio from website -
# installed anaconda from website -
# For the devchroot, I installed sublime text and a few python packages to
# get things going
# Install sublime from here -
sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
sudo apt-get install python-pip #I don't recall having to do this in precise
sudo pip install virtualenv
# And that should do it. Try cloning a repo and set up a virtualenv to test things out
