Termux – Chromebook terminal alternative!


IF you can’t install Linux (Beta) on your Chromebook yet, then checkout Termux from the Google Playstore. With Termux, you have yet another way to install Anaconda, Jupyter, and more. Yet again, no Crouton, Dev channel, or Dev mode required!



Finding any and all of your Chromebook specs!

A lot of people post on various sites and forums asking how they can find their CPU, memory, harddrive, etc spec of their either new or used Chromebook. Most are answered telling people that they have to figure out the make and model number of their Chromebook, and then search the internet. THIS IS NOT TRUE! Especially in some cases where the same make/model can have different specs. Below, you will find some internal chrome pages and apps that will show you all you need to know and more!

Has some information, but you’ll have to search for it.

Gives you some detailed information about the build/platform/firmware that your device is running.

Meh, not really my cup of tea… it can show you how much drive space you have left, and some internal storage paths.

Cog – System Info Viewer


One of two great apps available from the chrome store. Shows you probably all you want to know about your Chromebook and more.. CPU info, memory, hard drive space, ip address and more all on one screen.

Awesome little app. One can quickly view their CPU, memory, hard drive space, ip address and more with a few clicks. Well worth it as opposed to having to peck and click around various chrome:// pages to find the information you’re looking for.

Installing Anaconda on a Chromebook (No dev, beta, or crouton needed)

Installing Anaconda

The best way to install Anaconda is to download the latest Anaconda installer bash script, verify it, and then run it.

Find the latest version of Anaconda for Python 3 at the Downloads page accessible via the Anaconda home page. At the time of writing, the latest version is 5.2, but you should use a later stable version if it is available.

Next, change to the /tmp directory on your server. This is a good directory to download ephemeral items, like the Anaconda bash script, which we won’t need after running it.

>cd /tmp

We’ll use the curl command-line tool to download the script. Install curl:

sudo apt install curl

Now, use curl to download the link that you copied from the Anaconda website:

curl -O

Now we can run the script:


You’ll receive the following output:

Welcome to Anaconda3 5.2.0

In order to continue the installation process, please review the license
Please, press ENTER to continue

Press ENTER to continue and then press ENTER to read through the license. Once you’re done reading the license, you’ll be prompted to approve the license terms:

Do you approve the license terms? [yes|no]

As long as you agree, type yes.

At this point, you’ll be prompted to choose the location of the installation. You can press ENTER to accept the default location, or specify a different location to modify it.

Anaconda3 will now be installed into this location:

  - Press ENTER to confirm the location
  - Press CTRL-C to abort the installation
  - Or specify a different location below

[/home/YourName/anaconda3] >>> 

The installation process will continue. Note that it may take some time.

Once installation is complete, you’ll receive the following output:

installation finished.
Do you wish the installer to prepend the Anaconda3 install location
to PATH in your /home/sammy/.bashrc ? [yes|no]
[no] >>> 

Type yes so that you can use the conda command. You’ll receive the following output next:

Appending source /home/YourName/anaconda3/bin/activate to /home/YourName/.bashrc
A backup will be made to: /home/YourName/.bashrc-anaconda3.bak

Finally, you’ll receive the following prompt regarding whether or not you would like to download Visual Studio Code (or VSCode), a free and open-source editor for code developed by Microsoft that can run on Linux. You can learn more about the editor on the official Visual Studio Code website.

At this point, you can decide whether or not to download the editor now by typing yes or no.

Anaconda is partnered with Microsoft! Microsoft VSCode is a streamlined
code editor with support for development operations like debugging, task
running and version control.

To install Visual Studio Code, you will need:
  - Administrator Privileges
  - Internet connectivity

Visual Studio Code License:

Do you wish to proceed with the installation of Microsoft VSCode? [yes|no]

In order to activate the installation, close the Terminal window, and reopen a new one.

Install Python 3.7 on Chromebook through Terminal (no dev mode, beta channel, crouton needed)

Step 1 – Prerequisites

Use the following command to install prerequisites for Python before installing it.

sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall
sudo apt-get install libreadline-gplv2-dev libncursesw5-dev libssl-dev \
    libsqlite3-dev tk-dev libgdbm-dev libc6-dev libbz2-dev

Step 2 – Download Python 3.7

Download Python using following command from python official site. You can also download latest version in place of specified below.

cd /usr/src
sudo wget

Now extract the downloaded package.

sudo tar xzf Python-3.7.0.tgz

Step 3 – Compile Python Source

Use below set of commands to compile python source code on your system using altinstall.

cd Python-3.7.0
sudo ./configure --enable-optimizations
sudo make altinstall

make altinstall is used to prevent replacing the default python binary file /usr/bin/python.

Step 4 – Check Python Version

Check the latest version installed of python using below command

python3.7 -V
