https://mrchromebox.tech/#fwscriptUsed the Full ROM Firmware to remove the Google crap out of the machine. GalliumOS vs XUBUNTU
Gallium OS 2 is not supported properly with the Full ROM, so i had to get the nightly build with 3.1 alpha build. It worked perfectly fine, but there is nothing happening in Gallium for a while - I am not sure if the OS is still being maintained or not. I do understand that the OS is being built by devs during spare time and there is no team who is fully dedicated to get the releases out. This delay combined with all the machines at home running xubuntu, I decided to install xubuntu on the chromebook and try to fix the issues along the way.
Issue List Track pad not workingNo SoundSlowness (Compared to Gallium)No shortcut keys working - the chromebook keyboard ones.
Ran the below command to get the trackpad working.
