Chromebook xfce on a chrome tab

Because I usually connect my chromebook to a monitor, i hate to keep opening the chromebook to click on the 3 key combination to move between xfce and chrome OS.

Here is what i did to run xfce in a tab. I just set the chrome tab to full screen to make it look nice.

in the chrome os shell, type in the below command
sudo sh ~/Downloads/crouton -t xiwi -u

you will need the crouton integration app on chrome for this to work, else you will get a unable to connect to extension message.

run the below command once you install the app
sudo startxfce4 -X xiwi-tab

sudo startxfce4 -X xiwi-tab
Update: I had performance degradation, so i had to remove xiwi.
command to do that is
sudo sh ~/Downloads/crouton -u -t xorg
