Chrome OS Virtual Terminal

I just recently received a Google Chrome CR-48 notebook. After loads of searching, I've learned that you can get to a vritual terminal by hitting CTRL>ALT>T This is big, since there is no file manager. Just a heads-up for all lucky owners!

EDIT: It looks like there are no usual commands with this thing.... just network stuff. Dang.
EDITx2: It looks like a fully-functional terminal is only in dev mode. That's the solution. Just switch into dev mode, go to CTRL>ALT>T and type "shell"


  1. Cool. I just recently found out what CR-48 notebook in Google. Thanks for sharing the tip on how to use virtual terminal in it.

  2. No prob. It took me a while to realize that the bash terminal (usual linux terminal) was only available in dev mode, but once I got there, I was able to do a lot more.
