I have a Cr-48 Chromebook (currently on the beta channel version 13.0.782.43).

Whenever I attempt to use the Hangout feature of Google+ I am prompted to download the Google Voice and Video Plugin.

This plugin is for Windows, Mac OS 10.5+ or Linux. While Chrome OS is built on a Linux kernel, it's not full-blown Linux and I can't run the EXE file I am being asked to download.

What can I do to get Hangout to work correctly on my Cr-48? Is there an Extension I need? My web searches have thus far been fruitless.

  • Guess you have to wait until Google+ goes public, and CR48 users receive the updates. – Shiki Jul 9 '11 at 14:20
  • you're obviously not downloading the Linux one. EXE's don't work on Linux. – Wuffers Jul 9 '11 at 14:29

    Well if Google is having you download a .exe for Linux, they've really screwed up. – Wuffers Jul 9 '11 at 14:49
  • Heard back on the Google+ forums. Google is aware of the problem and hopes to have a fix "soon". – ale Jul 11 '11 at 0:53

I don't know if they updated Chrome or the plugin, but everything works just fine now. I didn't need to do anything.
