    ACER C720 can not mount /dev/loop0

    I have a Acer Chromebook C720P, I have been running Jeff's version of Bodhi and it is awesome, not everything runs out of the box but with these guys here it all comes together very quickly. I have Skype and Viber both running, for these I went and purchased a USB Logitech headset from Amazon, solved my problem with no mic. I downloaded the Universal USB Installer for my Windows machine, then downloaded the Bohi Linux for my Acer Chromebook, at that point I could insert my USB drive into the my pc and run the Universal USB Installer program and it makes a perfect boot drive to use on my Chromebook (download from here: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/) Now follow Jeff's install and all will work. I'm at work now but later this evening I would be glad to give you any help I can getting your Chromebook up and going, if Acer had any idea on how awesome this install is they would sell them with Bodhi pre-installed. Almost forgot, Welcome to Bodhi, Jeff usually says that to all the new members. When and if you use the Universal USB Installer it has a place where you can Select a linux Distribution from the dropdown menu, there is an option to choose "Bodhi" Don

    [Solved] C720 Microphone woes

    Problem of no sound out and no mic input is solved, I've purchased a Logitech USB Headset H390. Works awesome and shows up in all my programs, I was using the old style mic with the single pin and not powered.

    [Solved] C720 Microphone woes

    I had tried to get my mic working on the Acer Chromebook C720P and in the process have lost my sound, how do I reinstall my sound drivers. In a terminal I have installed the "Pulseaudio and Alsa-base packages, but that has not helped. Thanks guys Don

    no such file or directory when creating USB

    I have Bodhi on my Acer Chromebook c720P, its taken me about a month and lots of help from these guys here and lots of google searching, but I have my Chromebook looking and running so awesome. After I got my Chromebook just perfect I used remastersys and made me a perfect backup of my install, put it on a usb jump drive, now whenever I try something I shouldn't I can re-install and be back up and running in just a few minutes. I think I have everything anyone could ask for installed and running on my Chromebook. Donkim

    iPhone ios7 and Bodhi

    I have been able to get past the "Trust" part of the iphone ios7 problem, but this didnt help, it still does not show up in any file manager, when I run Rhythmbox all my music downloads to my Acer c720P Chromebook, and when I installed gphoto2 I could download all my photos with this command in a terminal: gphoto2 --port=usb: -R -P, all of my pictures was downloaded to my home folder, so I can get what I need but it still does not show up as anything. Appreciate all your help, hopefully it can get cleared up in time.

    [SOLVED] Can not install Cheese.

    It seems the appcenter has been down most of the day, I was needing to do a search but it always just timed out, working now and that may have been one of the problems. I always use the appcenter. Donkim

    Chromebook Acer720

    Hi Jeff It's been a couple of weeks now and Bodhi is getting so much easier to use. Have Skype, Netflix, Facebook and Youtube all on my iBar, Firefox and Chrome are working great as well. I know you have to be very busy, but have you thought anymore of maybe getting the touchscreen to working on a Chromebook c720P? Thanks Jeff Don

    Chromebook Acer720

    The USB mouse is a wireless usb mouse, not sure I mentioned that before. I have reinstalled Bodhi four times this morning, each time I do a different thing and reboot to see if that was the problem, like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, I have it up and running just as I like it, and so far for the last three hours of adding software and rebooting, using a wireless usb mouse, all works well. Each time I do the "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade" and then reboot I no longer have the use of my touchpad, I read here where to do that, perhaps I shouldn't because of my Acer Chomebook C720P, either way I will not do it again, so all looks very good for now, I would like to close this topic and look forward to asking a lot of better questions later. Thanks Jeff, really appreciate all your time and help. Don & wife Kim PS, it's been four more hours of use, loads of fun to play with, not a glitch of a problem....
