    The 2X ChromeBook Client can be downloaded from here:

    Please click 'Add To Chrome' to install. The latest version of the 2X ChromeBook client should be installable on all stable ChromeOS devices at this time of writing.

    There have been issues with this client on Chromebooks where the display appears to have horizontal lines, and in my case, a checkerboard pattern, of data that isn't refreshing properly. This makes the app useless on the ARM-edition Samsung Chromebook.

    This is a shame, as I use 2X extensively for Android.

    The 'checkerboard' pattern is known to happen with Samsung ARM Chromebooks. This seems to be related to hardware acceleration. Until a solution is found try temporary disabling hardware acceleration and the issue should not persist:

    To disable hardware accelaration on your Chromebook:

    1. Navigate to chrome://flags from your browser
    2. Locate the 'Disable accelerated 2D canvas' option and click the Enable link beneath
    3. Restart your Chromebook

    Disabling hardware acceleration does the trick: it's working fine on my Samsung Chromebook!

    Disabling hardware acceleration works. How do I get this setting on managed Chromebooks? I have made the change but it doesn't stick.

    How do I do this please?

    I've seen a forum post below this saying that this is not possible, but this release post (and the front page) indicate it is possible.
