    I have been using Elementary for about a day and a half now, and am positively loving the experience it provides. It truly is the most beautiful and efficient OS possible for a low end machine like a chromebook.

    However, there are a few steps that you have to go through in order to get the most out of your OS

    1. Click the trackpad continually with 4 fingers while the computer is starting up. I have no idea why this works, but otherwise, the trackpad, when clicked, enters a locked drag situation

    2. install pavucontrol for bluetooth audio. Similar to the XFCE audio manager, pavucontrol can be used to manage the audio inputs and outputs on the computer. install it by using the apt command. sudo apt install pavucontrol. you can then launch it by typing pavucontrol in the CL.

    That's all ive found, if i find more or patch the audio so it works in the built in speakers, I will create another post about it.
