Hexxeh Chromium OS Vanilla no connections available

Please refer to link:

It’s probably too late for your presentation, but this might help others.

 

You need to set your virtual network adapter to the “e1000″ type by adding the line

ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000″
to your .vmx file. This file should be in the folder you get when decompressing Hexxeh’s Vanilla vmware .zip file. Open the”ChromeOS-Vanilla-<build number>-VMWare.vmx” file with your favorite plain-text editor (Notepad will work) and add the line above to the end of the file. Save the .vmx file and try booting your VM again. You should then fine “Ethernet” in your network connection list within the ChromeOS setup.

NOTE: The above line should work for Fusion as well.

—————————————————————-

In order fix no connection available for Chromium OS Vanilla

1. Power down virtual machine.

2. browse to virtual machine folder.

3. Hold shit & Right click on your chrome virtual machine

4. Select Open with notepad

5. Scroll to the bottom of the text file and paste the following

ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000″

6. Save and exit notepad

This should fix your ethernet issue.

 

If this doesn’t work go back to virtual machine in notepad look for the following line

ethernet0.virtualDev = “vlance”

Delete that line and save notepad again. Make sure Virtual Machine network adapter is set to bridged not Nat. You can now login and have internet access.

Run Google Cloud Print as a Windows Service

This article is for IT administrators setting up Google Cloud Print on their Windows print servers. If you’re new to Cloud Print, see the Cloud Print for Business Overview.

Set up Google Cloud Print for your Organization

If you’re using a Windows Print server, you can download and run Google Cloud Print as a Windows Service on your server. This will allow users in your organization to print to your organization’s legacy printers from Chrome devices and other web-enabled devices. This is the same as using Google Cloud Print Connector, but running it as a service means that Cloud Print will be always on–running on your organization’s servers. It can be used in parallel with your current print solution.
