Sh: 0: Can’t open /home/chronos/user/Downloads/crouton

When I get to step 3, the message I get is:
We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System

#3) With great power comes great responsibility.

sh: 0: Can’t open /home/chronos/user/Downloads/crouton

I don’t know what to do from here.

Hello @Mandy_m!

Can you copy and paste the output from ls -l /home/chronos/user/Downloads/crouton ?

Which of the suggested commands did you try?

Could you show us the tutorial this quote refers to?

@Akito I thought, it referred to the eighth post in the Chromebook thread

Oh, I see the relation to the thread now. I moved this here, so we don’t mix up a new issue with an issue that is 1 year old.

Step 1 assumes a lot of things. I think it should be checked first if the file was downloaded correctly and into the right directory.

I saw Mandy’s post as a totally valid follow-up to an existing thread. I actually found it very refreshing that she didn’t just lazily open up a new question but researched first whether there was already an existing topic matching her issues.

Welcome to “It’s Foss” @Mandy_m. I can not help with your request, but wanted to welcome you to the forum. I am hopeful that you will find a solution from one of the members.

So did this problem ever get solved? I’m having it too.
