    You can't, to my knowledge. Adobe has not released flash plugins for linux on ARM.

    Unless Adobe has their own ARM Linux Flash Player, you're probably going to need Gnash.

    I need some clarity here: what exactly needs to be specifically coded for ARM? How is it that everything in the ubuntu repos is able to install? I doubt all of these programs have had devs code ARM version of them.

    Often not so much coded as compiled. A lot of software either doesn't require specific coding for ARM or has already had it done (ARM CPUs show up in a lot of places, not just phones and tablets!), hence being available in the repositories.

    Anything that uses assembly would have to be specifically coded for ARM though - and I know Adobe Flash Player uses assembly.

    If you install synaptic (apt-get install synaptic) package manager you'll you will get a better idea what's available and what isn't like, for example, wine isn't available. In order to get flash into the chromium-browser you have to install both Lightspark and Gnash and then disable the adobe plugin if it's showing up in 'aboutlugins'. I got it working a bit with simple *.swf files but full video isn't all that stable or just flat out doesn't work.

    Did the 3.0.2 update have any effect on accessing the on screen keyboard for ubuntu apps? I don't have a bluetooth keyboard and was hoping to avoid getting one....

    Yes, the vkb is there - I just can't get it to drop away. It IS still beta.

    So it went from no access to VKB for Ubuntu via Xecutah to VKB always on?

    There's unused space on the bottom of the terminal just big enough for the XS keyboard to fit. You can use larger sizes but there's some overlap.

    Well crap. I've got Ubuntu 11.04 running in VirtualBox. I downloaded the 3.0.2 Doctor and edited my makefile to autoinstall preware, enable the testings feeds, and create the 2gb extfs partition. When I ran make though I got an error saying it couldn't find the 3.0.0 file...well duh I didn't choose that file. So I renamed the 3.0.2 file to have the same name as what it was looking for. Make completed successfully. I copied the file it made from metadoctor/build etc., to a USB stick and put it on my main system (windows 7) and ran it. Next next english next and plugged in my touchpad aaaaaaand no next button. Any ideas on why I got that error/why my next button won't highlight?

    Turn off the TP and hold the volume up key while turning it back on.

    Thanks for the reply. I started up WOSQI and it wouldn't connect either. Reinstall novacom and got my next button. I'm looking at the HP logo on it's first boot after doctor. woot woot!

    I have ubuntu chroot installed and working, have run apt-get to install LXDE. How do I start the x-windows to get the window manager working?

    Hi. I meta-doctored the Touchpad and installed install Xecutah and Ubuntu 11.04 Chroot. When I launch Xserver it pops up, but when I try to launch Ubuntu I am getting the following error:

    Service Error (Execute):

    Unable to Run command: /sbin/initctl start org.webosinternals.ubuntu-natty-chroot 2>&1

    Initctl Unknown Job: org.webosinternals.ubuntu-natty-chroot


    Any Ideas?

    figured it out /etc/X11/Xsession
  16. #36  
    Ok .... I reinstalled Ubuntu and now I do not get the error, but it does not seem to do any thing. The XServer session is still grey. Hmmm... Is there anything I can check to troubleshoot this. I am not sure where the problem could lie. I Suppose I could reinstall Xecutah as well....

    Not Sure what my problem is.... Here is what I did. Maybe Someone can point out my mistake.

    Sources: Application:MetaDoctor - WebOS Internals
    Chrooting - WebOS Internals
    UbuntuChroot - WebOS Internals
    First off you will need a Linux OS to Setup the Image that is required for this. If you want you can install a Dual Boot with whatever OS you are currently using or just build a Ubuntu Virtual PC. This is up to you. I chose the Virtual route. So, there are software solutions for virtual pcs I chose Virtual Box due to it being Free.
    1 Run a Webos Backup on the Touchpad
    2 Download and Install Virtual Box. VirtualBox
    3 Download Ubuntu Homepage | Ubuntu
    4 Install Ubuntu as a Virtual PC (use Bridged Network, setup the Ubuntu Image as being in the CDROM for Bootup)
    Once Installed Do the following on the Ubuntu PC
    5 Open terminal from the ( Applications > Accessories ) menu.
    6 Update your package lists and install git and Java runtime (the Canonical Partner Repository is needed to install the Sun Java JRE because it was moved out of the Multiverse in Ubuntu 10.04). Type:
    sudo add-apt-repository "deb Index of / lucid partner"
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install git
    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
    7 Download and install the Palm Novacom software: https://cdn.downloads.palm.com/sdkdo....0.64_i386.deb
    8 Download the meta-doctor scripts using git. Type:
    git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git
    9 Navigate to the meta-doctor directory.
    cd meta-doctor
    10 Create a downloads directory. Type:
    mkdir downloads

    11 Navigate to the meta-doctor directory in the terminal
    12 Download the latest webosdoctor file using the download paths found at Webos Doctor Versions . Webos Doctor Versions - WebOS Internals
    13 Type in Terminal:

    cd downloads
    wget http://palm.cdnetworks.net/rom/touch...2hstnhwifi.jar
    14 Rename the file that you download to include the version number for future reference (examples: webosdoctorp302hstnhwifi-3.0.2.jar
    15 Move the file to the Downloads folder that you created previously. If you forget it will tell you in a min to do it.
    16 open the Makefile with your favorite text editor and uncomment (remove the leading # characters from) the options you would like to use.
    For Example:
    ENABLE_DEVELOPER_MODE = 1
    AUTO_INSTALL_PREWARE = 1
    ENABLE_TESTING_FEEDS = 1
    # INSTALL_SSH_AUTH_KEYS = 1
    # INSTALL_WIFI_PROFILES = 1
    # DISABLE_UPLOAD_DAEMON = 1
    # DISABLE_UPDATE_DAEMON = 1
    # DISABLE_MODEM_UPDATE = 1
    ENABLE_USB_NETWORKING = 1
    # REMOVE_MODEL_CHECK = 1
    # REMOVE_CARRIER_CHECK = 1
    # CHANGE_KEYBOARD_TYPE = z
    # ADD_EXTRA_CARRIERS = 1
    # VAR_PARTITION_SIZE = 2GB
    # SWAP_PARTITION_SIZE = 512MB
    EXT3FS_PARTITION_SIZE = 2GB
    17 Before doing the next step, make sure you change back into the meta-doctor directory first. All the following commands must be run from the meta-doctor directory.
    Type: make DEVICE=touchpad CARRIER=wifi all

    18 When it is done it will create a updated doctor version that has the same name as the original, but is in a new folder: meta-doctor/build/touchpad-p302hstnh-wifi-3.0.2
    19 copy the new jar out of the VM into your live desktop to run the jar in your native OS (ie: Win7)

    Now on your Real OS (Win7 or whatever)

    20 Run the following in the command prompt in the folder where you copied the Jar
    java -jar webosdoctorp302hstnhwifi-3.0.2.jar
    21 Follow the On Screen Instructions
    22 Turn off the TP and hold the volume up key while turning it back on
    23 It should be recognized and do its thing. It will take 20 Min and then will reboot as a fresh Touchpad.

    On the Touchpad

    24 Restore from the backup and input all of your credentials.
    25 Using Preware, install Xecutah and Ubuntu 11.04 Chroot (61mb).
    26 Device Reboot
    27 Hit the relevant buttons on Xecutah to run the XServer and the Ubuntu 11.04 Chroot.
    28 Run XServer first, which will open an Xserver window, then return to Xecutah and tap Ubuntu 11.04 Chroot. When you return to the Xserver card, you should see a Ubuntu command prompt.

    Did you ever mount the ext3fs partition?

    Look under "How to get the optional ext3fs partition mounted at device boot" on this page

    Application:MetaDoctor - WebOS Internals
    IIIxe -> Handera 330 -> Tungsten C -> Treo 650 -> Centro -> Pre-, Pre2 & Touchpad 32
