Running Ubuntu gui on chromebook


I want to run a full ubuntu distro on my chromebook complete with gui.

I am running the linux beta on the latest version of chromeOS.

It is important that I have gnucash,libre office and that my printer is recognised on my usb port.

I followed the instructions on

and ran the command docker run -it ubuntu bash

a bash shell appeared, but there was no gui.

what do I have to do to get all the tools and apps that I need?


Many people aren’t aware, however, that Chromebooks are capable of doing more than just running Web apps. In fact, you can run both Chrome OS and Ubuntu, a popular Linux operating system, on a Chromebook.
