I have an Acer C710-2847 Chromebook and I just installed Xubuntu 13.04 32-bit. I keep running into small problems when trying to get the installer (1.0.2) to work.
When I attempt the first wget script for the key to correct the W:GPG error I get the error:
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found
What does this mean and how do I correct it?
I assume you type the wget line, hit enter, then follow it up with the sudo command right?
Does it matter if I use 64-bit or 32-bit Ubuntu 13.04? Will the flavor of Ubuntu make a difference?
What's the exact command that you are running that triggers that error? I'd like to test it myself.
And to answer your followup question: The architecture (64 vs 32 bit) should not matter, nor should
the flavour of ubuntu. I should note, however, that while we test on both 32 and 64 bit architectures,
we haven't explicitly tested anything on xubuntu, so it's _possible_ you might run into something we
haven't thought of there.
I was able to resolve the issue although I forgot exactly what it was I did. I am going to leave this issue for you to resolve as I have moved on to the 1.0.3 installer and have no real issues getting it to work.
I will say that I ran into a E: The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/https could not be found. issue while running the installer the first time but this was resolved after using the command:
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
I also had to update some keys manually (after sudo apt-get update reveled key errors) using the following command:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys [missing key here]
Ah, thanks for those - we'll have to add apt-transport-https to the installer's dependencies.
Thanks for the note about the keys too, I'll make sure the release notes mention that.
