Counter Strike Global Offensive on Chromebook

Counter Strike Global Offensive on Chromebook? Are you tired of playing the same old games on your Chromebook? Well, with a little help from Linux and Steam you can play CS:Go on your Chromebook. Of course, this will only work with the Intel powered Chromebooks. As far as performance, it’s playable. On average, I am getting around 23-30 fps in games. It’s nowhere close to the performance that I get on my desktop, but is still playable none the less.


For installation, all I did was installed Steam on Ubuntu that’s running on my Chromebook. I am using the Acer c720, which only has 16gb of storage space. So I connected a flash drive, and changed the steam install location to the directory I mounted the flash drive:

sudo fdisk -l

sudo mkdir /mnt/usb

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb

sudo chown -v dave /mnt/usb

sudo chmod 755 /mnt/usb
