Prey for Chromebooks
please let Prey app be allowed on Chromebooks.
Hi guys. This is currently on our radar. Our priority would depend on the traction it gets

Chromebooks do run Linux but the Linux binary is a .deb package, which not only makes it difficult to install on distros like Fedora (which uses RPMs), it also makes it impossible to use on a regular Chromebook because it does not include tools to extract .debs. It is impossible to download anything onto the root filesystem because it is read-only and cannot be mounted read-write without entering developer mode, which wipes the entire Chromebook.
Also, because of the nature of Chromebooks, installation is more involved, and requires going to the virtual terminal instead of being able to install it from the desktop. An entirely new app would need to be created for Chrome.
