I just got a Samsung Chromebook and followed your great guide on installing Linux on it to "unleash it's full potential'!

Everything went well except now I have no idea what I'm doing with Linux.

Through much trial and error, I was able to install some programs like UnRAR and MComix.

This took a lot of trial and error though, trying to figure out if XFCE is Ubuntu or Debian (are they the same?), where to find programs and how to install them, knowing which build works for the ARM Chromebook, what the heck a package is and if I needed one or many, will any Linux program work on XFCE?, and many others.

So I figure I better start from the beginning and learn what the heck I'm doing.

Any help would be great!

Sincerely,

Lost in LinuxLand
