    Are there instructions for installing Ubuntu in an image file instead of creating a partition? I keep seeing mention of people saying they are doing it, but yet to find a post of how to do it.

    Thanks,

    There are. I have ubuntu mounted as a 2gb image file. Oddly enough, I can no longer find the page (in Preware.org? or webosinternals.org?) that had the .img alternative. It works fine, except that even though I have it in my webos fstab (to mount) I still have o mount the image manually. That means I have to activate the virtual keyboard, start up webos with xecutah, mount ubuntu (I have a one-line script for this), minimize that, go to tweaks to turn the keyboard off, and go back and start up ubuntu chroot. It's a bit of a hassle that those who use a partition don't seem to have. I'm using the Onboard virtual keyboard (bit rough but it works).

    Just trying to remember what I did - I created and formatted a 2gb ext3 filesystem, and a ubuntu.img file, took care of the mount (did not work - I need to do this manually). The rest, as I recall, but don't quote me, is similar to using the partition route, but a lot simpler. You should keep looking for the page: google "how to install buintu.img on hp touchpad" or something like that.

    I tried the same thing, but still get "stuttering" in the audio. My thought is that backend audio programs running under vlc are accessing the hardware directly, while the Xserver in Xecutah is providing a parallel path, so the sound is getting to the speakers via two routes that are not in sync. Could someone more knowledgeable than me look into this theory, and possibly suggest/make a change to Xecutah that would allow one to turn sound on and off?

    I don't want to redoctor, so I am trying to follow the alternative method from the wiki:
    Then verify how much space /media/internal is using
    lvscan | grep media
    For a 16GB TP you should only reduce the size by 4GB and for a 32GB TP you can safely reduce by 8GB So this means if the size is 23GB on a 32GB TP your final space that you would resize to is ie: 23GB-8GB=15GB
    <code>resizefat /dev/mapper/store-media {size you determined it to be}G - I picked 4G to leave about 9G for my Ubuntu. Decide for yourself. This operation will delete your data if you make it too small.
    lvresize -L 4G /dev/mapper/store-media
    Forgive my ignorance. I just want to make sure I know what I'm doing before I do it.
    My output is
    root@HPTouchPad:/# df -h | grep internal
    27.6G 8.8G 18.8G 32% /media/internal
    So, /media/internal is currently 27.6G allocated, 8.8G in use, and 18.8G free, correct?

    If I want to use 9G for Ubuntu, what numbers do I put for the resizefat, and lvresize commands? I am not a newbie on linux, but this part of the wiki is not real clear to me, specifically the "{size you determined it to be}" part.

    Thanks for the help...

    Reading the instructions I found the equation and the arithmetic example to appear contradictory'and I couldn't follow the number trail and devices on the how to recover part so I followed the MetaDoctor instructions which I found to be clearer. Later I was happy I did because when I tried "Google" suggested ways to improve sound quality in VLC a couple of the choices destroyed all sound in ubuntu chroot as well as webOS. With the "doctored" MetaDoctor, rebuilding everything was quite straightforward and done in fewer keyboardist steps. In addition, the exercise gave me a lot of appreciation for Java, a language that I'd gotten quite discouraged about.

    I use Xournal on the TP just fine. I find it very responsive. Turn off the use Xinput feature under options. It's my #1 application on the Touchpad! :-)

    Kind regards

    Here's what Xournal looks like. REALLY NICE. Just disable XInput and save your settings.

    It is not smooth curves and if you try to write smaller character such as in betweeen the lines only then you will notice that it is quite not smooth lines, I am not complaining but trying to see if there is a good solution

    Has anyone had success with flash on ubuntu? I've installed the browser plugin and stuff, but when it runs it's terrible. Not watchable at all, would overclocking help at all?

    TUTORIAL: How to get the UbuntuChroot up and running for your HP TouchPad

    I put it on the WebOS Internals Wiki below. Feel free to correct any misspelling or anything.
    UbuntuChroot - WebOS Internals
    Can you install Ubuntu along side of WebOS that way you can choose which you want to boot into, rather than overwrite all of your WebOS data?

    Thanks!

    So far, no good.

    Man, this is all so foreign to me that it's hard to even know what I want or need, much less take the time to actually install it and get it running. I don't understand this: You talk about installing UbuntuChroot on the TP. What is the Chroot portion mean? Ubuntu is Linux right? So the word UbuntuChroot throws me. Is it a version much like OS X (Ubuntu) Snow Leopard (Chroot)?

    LXDE... says in the video that it's "LXDE (Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment) running in XServer via UbuntuChroot". X11 is like a Linux developer code environment, that much I know being a Mac user. But I don't know ANYTHING about it. So... what does LXDE have to do with installing Ubuntu? Is it like an "app" you install to tweak Ubuntu?

    I'm asking such silly questions that are so obvious to many of you I'm sure. I know that "if I'm this lost now, then it's not for you". Could be true. I just want a kickin' Tablet, that's all. If doing this gets the me the most out of my TP, then I'm willing to learn. If it's just a different flavor that gets you the same end result as WebOS, then I'm not sure it's worth it. I don't need "different'. I just want something that "works". So that when I go to a website, I can browse it without wifi locking up. Or working with a Word doc, I can actually edit it properly, as well as not having MIME errors with EVERY single stupid common file I download. Or the ability to actually SORT photos inside of the photo app? How simple is that? yet, I can't figure out how to do it with the WebOS provided app!

    Thanks!

    metadoc? or manual?

    I tried to repartition manually and got the following.... (see attachment)

    Someone please advise how to proceed!!!! I'd love to get Ubuntu up and running, I just don't know if I'm in a situation that I can continue, or if I've got some housekeeping to take care of first.

    Thanks in advance

    You can probably use key combinations with any word processing app (I'm able to use them in AbiWord). Look in Xecutah below the "Start Ubuntu 11.04 chroot" button and it will tell you how to simulate the ctrl key.
