    Because it is just so fun playing around with these things! The big sold reason why though would be for complete Word Processing because we don't know if HP will be providing the QuickOffice Suite for the TouchPad anymore.

    Yeah did that and uncommented the WIFI profile option. Since I'm lazy, I also added support to the Makefile to restore a saved Bluetooth configuration.

    when i ls into media i see the ext3fs directory... i am not sure what i am doing wrong.. i just cut and pasted step by step and no errors come up until this step. lost

    "edit: starting over... i think i missed the removing of # before create ext3fs.... crossing fingers as it loads"
    sounds like you forgot to create the ext3fs folder. Uninstall ubuntuChroot and redo that step.

    Personally, I find iceWM to be a bit more finger-friendly.

    Optimize LXDE for touch:

    Go to Preferences, OpenBox Configuration Manager, Appearance. Change Active title bar to something like size 16 and inactive to something like 15.

    You can also go into customize look and feel and change the default font to something like 13 or so.

    Great work...thanks for sharing it with us...

    Do you think that it is going to be possible to get the gnome interface running? Have you tried?

    Cheers

    hold the keyboard icon far bottom right when it pops up, the same one you use to dismiss the keyboard, 4 size options appear.

    ive tried all that but found the crippling factor to be..... widgits! we need bigger window widgits, solve that for me and your a legend.

    Its great having big title bars, buttons, text etc, then you have to poke the minimise or close icons with a pinhead :/

    While attempting to install LibreOffice it rebooted on me and now no matter when I try it gives me a "E:dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run "sudo dpkg --configure -a" to correct the problem.

    When I run "sudo dpkg --configure -a" It says something like ... setting up Libre-office-common but then it reboots almost immediately...

    Has anyone experienced this?

    do

    sudo get-apt install synaptic
    or is it synaptics, i always forget.


    nice package manager, run that in your desktop environment, search for LibreOffice, select the "LibreOffice" part, not the other stuff, and it will auto install the lot for you inc other dependancies.

    if u want nething else, check synaptic package manager first, ittl even give a quick writeup on whatever you click.

    i had some rogue vnc client go crashville on me a few times, been a tad better now i read about them in synaptics first.

    I love Ubuntu, I have it on all my pc's at home (HATE WINDOWS!) However, what happened to the guys who wanted to port webOS to another phone? Now is the time to try that with version 3.0, since HP took out the gesture area, it should be much easier to port it to a phone with better specs, but on the same chipset. Also, since HP mentioned maybe rewriting webOS for other chipsets, that would allow more opportunities to port to other phones, maybe iPhone? How about it webOS internals? Think it's possible?

    And now that webOS tablets have finally made it to the masses, many who have no clue what webOS is, this is when the Homebrew community can really shine. I think we need to have a telethon to support our guys!!!

    Thank you, Rennat for the super helpful tutorial and WebOS Internalz for all the hard work getting ubuntu setup to run on the touchpad. I can now use Eclipse with the Target Management plugin to ssh into work and deal with any issues for our web clients and all without carrying a 6-10lbs laptop around 24/7. I did have to install Gnome and load that up to get Eclipse to switch perspectives, after that Gnome isn't required as the preferences are saves. Thank again for all the hard work, I really appreciate it.

    You might also check out LXlauncher - nice, big icons instead of teeny, little start menu.

    Thanks for this! I have mine running nicely with LXDE. Any idea how to get right click working?
