    Install the UbuntuChroot (or Debian if you prefer): http://forums.precentral.net/webos-d...-touchpad.html

    Zane9000's autoconfigure script is the easiest way to get a desktop environment working: http://forums.precentral.net/webos-d...on-ubuntu.html

    Then type:
    Code:
    apt-get install gimp

    Thanks for the link. I tried to create a ext3 partition but it does'nt work.
    I have installed ubuntu on my desktop pc and set up the meta doktor as discribed. After rebooting my tablet I installed Xecutah + xterm I started Xecutah and then xterm.

    I entered in Xterm:
    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw /
    mkdir -p /media/ext3fs
    mount -o remount,rw /     
    echo "/dev/mapper/store-ext3fs /media/ext3fs ext3   noatime,data=writeback   0   0" >> /etc/fstab
    mount -a
    I got an error:
    Code:
     mount: mounting /dev/mapper/store-ext3fs on /media/ext3fs failed: no such file or directory
    - /media/ext3fs exist
    - in fstab is the last line "/dev/mapper/store-ext3fs /media/ext3fs ext3 noatime,data=writeback 0 0"
    /dev/mapper/store-ext3fs does not exists therefore I created a 0 bytes file

    after "mount -a" I got
    Code:
     mount: /dev/loop() on media/ext3fs failed: Invalid argument
    What did I wrong?

    Those directions don't require ubuntu on your PC, scroll down for Mac and Windows. I cannot be positive but I think you missed a step when you doctored your touchpad. Read Step 1 in it's entirety, at the provided link. Make sure you uncomment the correct line of the Makefile. If you don't do this step the ext3fs partition won't be created.

    thanks for your response. I read carefully the guides step by step.Ubuntu on the PC is important to modify the jre file with makefile. I uncomment the line with ext3fs partition size of 2gb continue with the guide and checked the settings twice.

    I don't know what went wrong.
    How can I check if the ext3 partition was created?

    For the other beginners
    I don't found the reason or solution either but I used a workaround.

    I don't have access with novaterm to my Touchpad. Therefore I installed Xecutha and Xterm w/o Ubuntu. Then I continue with step 1.3

    UbuntuChroot - WebOS Internals

    keep in mind that
    Code:
    resizefat /dev/mapper/store-media 4G
    means that 4GB will be left for non Ubuntu data/WebOS data

    cheers
