    Bought me a Dell Chromebook with Kali Linux that I played with for awhile.
    Decided enough was enough and made up a 64 bit antiX full iso usb.
    Hit the escape key when turning this on to pick usb bootup.
    Good news. Booted up just fine. Installed just fine. Most hardware worked out of the box
    Bad news. No sound. No 2 finger tap. Takes 3 fingers for the 2 finger action.
    Tap was easy to fix.

    Glad I posted earlier.

    Sound fix required pulse audio install for my fumbling about in alsa on my lonesome
    Took me 2 days to find this page

    Now youtube and xmms play noise. Before
    speaker-test
    button in hardware crashed in antiXcc . Running it terminal would throw errors but no sound.
    Now it works in terminal

    Using that nanax.fr thread. I errored out a bit following the restart commands. Reboot seemed to fix it though cuz I had sound after that.

    Hopefully some one > like me > can use this thread. 😀 Tickled pink I got this working. I did not want to go back to Kali where sound and tap worked.

    Details. Forgot. Edit: when needing a like a F1 key at slim login.
    On the l/h side of keyboard is a magnify glass looking icon. That is your search key.
    Press it and hold it while going through the top row keys with symbols on this chromebook.

    Thanks for this roky!
    I’ve got that same model chromebook. I successfully re-did the bios & installed antiX, but the sound won’t work, and the the touch pad is a bit wonky, too.
    My workarounds are to use usb devices to fix it.
    Problem is (as you know) – there are only 2 usb ports!
    So now it looks like I can finally fix these issues the right way!
    Much obliged!

    Yeah. Missed the fast bootup when my Acer C710 broke. These chromebooks are as cheap as raspberry pi bpards.

    That sound chip I posted is a PITA for a lot of Linux users. Now just waiting for some parts to come in for my NUC intel box.
    It should become my fastest desktop yet. Also the price of a raspberry pi board.

    Got tired of shutting down this chromebook when hitting the back space button while not looking.

    Power button sits like a key on key board. Easy to hit by accident.

    My dirty fix for now

    harry@antix1:~
    $ cd /etc/acpi/
    harry@antix1:/etc/acpi
    $ ls
    always-mute.sh              lid.sh                       sleep_suspend.sh
    asus-keyboard-backlight.sh  mutebtn.sh                   sonybright.sh
    asus-wireless.sh            powerbtn-acpi-support.sh     tosh-wireless.sh
    ejectbtn.sh                 powerbtn-acpi-support.sh.bk  undock.sh
    events                      power.sh                     voldownbtn.sh
    ibm-wireless.sh             sleep_suspendbtn.sh          volupbtn.sh
    harry@antix1:/etc/acpi
    

    Made a backup of powerbtn-acpi-support.sh.bk to keep my original.
    Then opened geany with sudo an deleted everything original but

    harry@antix1:/etc/acpi
    $ cat powerbtn-acpi-support.sh
    #!/bin/sh
    
    # This script initiates a shutdown when the power putton has been
    # pressed. Loosely based on the sample that ships with the acpid package.
    # If the acpid sample is present as a real config file (as it was in earlier
    # versions of acpid), we skip this script. (Purging and reinstalling acpid
    # resolves this situation, or simply deleting /etc/acpi/events/powerbtn.)
    
    harry@antix1:/etc/acpi
    

    Logged out and back in. Hit power button. Now nothing happens.Chromebook still turns on with power button.
    Logout button on menu or command line shutdown work as power button shutdown now. Have not tested Ctrl_alt backspace yet to see if logout works still.

    I have to laugh because that power button caught me a couple times, too!
