- Get your Chromebook into Developer Mode.
Install Crouton. This guide will assume the installation command you use is sudo sh -e ~/Downloads/crouton -t unity -r saucy and that when you are asked for a new username/password, you enter user/user.
sudo apt-get install gnome-terminal (to avoid going crazy)
** sudo apt-get install python-software-properties software-properties-common**
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:minecraft-installer-peeps/minecraft-installer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install minecraft-installer
Just to be sure you start from a good place, reboot your Chromebook at this point.
- Power up your Chromebook.
- Type Control-D at the scary screen or wait 30 seconds.
- Sign in as yourself or guest or whoever. Doesn’t matter.
- Control-Alt-T to get into crosh (or better install the Crosh Window utility and use that).
- sudo enter-chroot
- Click on the Ubuntu circle in the upper-left and start typing minecraft. The icon should appear. Click on it.
- Play Minecraft.
- To switch back and forth between your Linux and ChromeOS environments, use control-alt-shift-back/forward (where back/forward are either the keys between esc and refresh on your Chromebook keyboard, or else F1 and F2 on your standard PC keyboard).
