    qemu works, but I have not yet been able to compile it statically with the libs it needs (requires? I dunno) to run outside the chroot.

    But inside the chroot, qemu runs "ok", but the mouse mapping is off. I assume running natively would fix that.

    win98 runs "fine" (sort of slow), xp seems to have some problems, but probably would be way too slow anyways?)

    Thanks
    Frame rate in general? The desktop seems entirely usable, and I have no complaints regarding refresh rate or anything like that. Are you talking about video playback or games? I haven't tried either, so I can't comment on that, but I have got Debian set up and it's working great.

    I think it was me that was commenting on the frame rate. I was referring to video playback with VLC (specifically wmv playback). If you want to install Ubuntu to watch wmv movies, don't bother. If you get 1 frame every 5 seconds you are lucky. On the other hand mp4 and avi files seem to play and be quite watchable. You can get youtube to work, but the flash player is pretty terrible and the framerate become only slightly better than that of the wmv files.

    I have not tried Debian, but I suspect it is the same situation.

    Probably so. I wonder what's causing that issue. I might try it out on Arch Linux ARM to see if there's a problem with the Ubuntu implementation or if it's just one of those things.

    Maybe a stupid question, but I am debating on doing this to my touchpad. I am still learning when it comes to webOS, so if I do this, can I, and has anyone, used the webOS doctor to restore everything back to stock?

    The neat thing about this process is it's not too destructive. Essentially it's just making a partition out of free space and putting files in that partition.

    Unless you need additional space for movies/music, you shouldn't have to. I can't speak on webosdoctor, since I haven't had to but I'd imagine it just reformats the entire device (in which case it would reverse the process).

    Just trying to put your mind at ease, since for the Linux beginner I know that some of this stuff looks a little daunting and scary. It's a pretty basic process, as far as Linux things go.

    @trevor.starick, @projectalarum and anyone else who has tried Aircrack, have you guys had any luck? If so, any chance of a noob guide for ex-die hard Windows fans?

    Thanks.

    I was looking for a way to fix the error caused by the cups service inability to connect to upstart in the chroot environment and came across a solution that seems to work.

    Code:
    dpkg-divert --local --rename --add /sbin/initctl
    ln -s /bin/true /sbin/initctl
    cups works btw and i am able to print to my epson wireless printer. I added cupsd to my lxde startup script.

    yes i have the icedtea plugin working in firefox. i am not sure how and why though. what i did is configured synaptic with all the update repos. updated (downloaded some ~300mbs), then selected icedtea plugin and voila icedtea plugin runs applets in firefox (latest version of firefox after update is 6.0.2)

    I've read most of this, but not all, so I'm sorry if this was covered. I've been running xfce4 in a 1.9GB image. I'm able to get pretty much everything set up and working, but after a few days things seem to go awry. I'll launch Chroot after XTerm, like usual, but my white Ubuntu window will flash for a second and then disappear behind my black (running Tweaks) XTerm window. No amount of waiting between the processes seems to make a difference, and nor does a reboot.

    The last thing I did before this stopped working: updated my kernel (F4) and rebooted. I do not remember if I had any prior reboots since this most recent instance of Ubuntu was configured.

    Has anyone seen this? I'd love to know what's going wrong before I spend another few hours configuring this again. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

    That means you missed the step which tells the Meta-Doctor to actually create the ext3fs partition. Try again.

    after some hard reboots or bad crashes the mount is simply lost, you can always just reopen xterm and re mount -o loop /media/yourimage.img /media/ext3fs and then type exit and relaunch chroot, i avoid the auto mount just incase something goes bang and tend to mount manually for the moment.

    i still use images if only to keep a fresh "blank.img" a "xfce4.img" "lxde.img" and "test.img", when an install goes bang/wrong i just cp blank.img whateverilost.img and start again.

    the "flash then nothing" thing tho is deffo a lost mount when your runnign chroot, just remount the image.

    looking through the directories I see that there is an OpenJDK Java 6 Runtime in /usr/share/applications. So my question is can you run .jar applications?
    This is awesome! Thanks to all who had a hand in making this happen.

    never mind I figured it out
    right click (or in this case press and hold)
    open with...
    click on the "custom command line" tab
    java -jar
    check box that say "set selected application as default action of this file type"

    Here is how to get pidgin working in Ubuntu:

    In terminal:
    Code:
    sudo /bin/dbus-uuidgen > /var/lib/dbus/machine-id
    sudo apt-get install pidgin
    I have tested MSN and gtalk. Both are working in pidgin.

    Hope it helps.

    <still waiting for my Touchpad to be delivered>

    BIG QUESTION though...how well does LibreOffice work in this instance? Better than QuickOffice? Can anyone give a review or analysis?

    This would be much appreciated.

    LibreOffice works well. I've only used it to write and print a couple letters. Just need to find a right click solution that is comfortable for you since it isn't tablet optimized. Works much better than quick office.
