Lucky Cat Patch is an unofficial, unofficial, and free Linux distro based on the Chromium browser.
It was originally released in 2009 and has since been supported by a handful of distros including Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, CentOS, Arch Linux, and Kali Linux.
Lucky Cat patches a Chromium plugin to a Chromecast, but the software is actually designed to work with the official Chromium Chromecast plugin, which is a bit of a no-no.
The lucky cat patch is compatible with the ChromeCast and is available as a free download.
Luckycat also works with Linux Mint, which uses Chromium to power the desktop and tablet experience.
LuckyCat also works on most Android devices.
LuckyPatcher is not as stable as the official ChromeCast, but it’s a decent enough replacement.
Lucky Patcher is available for free download in the Google Play store.
Lucky cat patches the Chromecast to run the Chromebook on a Linux PC.
Luckypatcher is free and comes with an installer, but you’ll have to download and install LuckyCat first to install it.
To run the Lucky Cat patch, simply open up the Chromebox.
Once you open up LuckyCat, you’ll see a window with a few options.
First, choose the “Run Chromebook” option.
You can use the built-in installer or you can download a standalone installer that installs to the /Library/chromebook folder.
Click the install button, then choose the installer you want to install.
After the installation is complete, open up a new terminal window and type in the following command: cat /etc/luckycat.conf If you use a regular text editor, you can use Ctrl-V to paste the text you see below: /etc-luckypatcher.conf Your terminal will look like this: cat <<EOF LANG=en_US/fr/de/pt-BR/pt_BR/sg_AR/sv_US /etcLuckyCat /etcOFP LuckyCat can now be used to open up Chromebooks on Linux.
Once LuckyCat is running, you’re ready to install the Chromecast plugin.
If you already have a Chromebook, simply navigate to the Downloads tab and download LuckyCat from the Google download page.
If not, LuckyCat will be available from the Chromestack website as well.
LuckyPatch is another unofficial and free Chromecast-friendly distro that uses Chromecasts built-ins to run on Android.
Lucky Patch is compatible on most Chromebooks running Android 4.0 and above, but older devices will not work.
Lucky patch runs Chromecast apps and also runs Chromebook apps.
Luckypatch comes with a handy installer, which you can run in a terminal.
The installable installer is a ChromeCast-friendly install that’s included with LuckyCat.
Lucky patches a chromebook to run Chromebook Apps on a Chromeboot.
