    Install Ubuntu on acer n16q14

    I can't seem to find anything online explaining how to install Ubuntu on this, I had to come extremely disillusioned with all of the nonsense Google keeps pulling. All I want is another operating system on this computer. they're getting rid of Google cloud print so I will no longer be able to use this to print documents. Basically, please help me get chrome OS off this computer. I imagine there's a way to print using Ubuntu with a brother laser printer.

    Acer is pretty much standard dual boot, but does have unique requirement of setting "trust" on ubuntu/grub boot entry in UEFI to have it work.
    Most Acers are similar.

    Arm is a whole different can of worms.
