    only thing, when I try to run synaptic I get an error "Failed to run /usr/sbin/synaptic as root user" unable to copy the user's Xauthorization file.

    any insights would be appreciated!
    use

    sudo synaptic, or better yet add that to 1 of the launcher panel/bars.

    do the same for anything else that touches your systems inner workings, like bleachbit.

    That is a shame, I will investigate this later today/tomorrow. Are you doing a clean install, or running the script over an existing install?

    That is a great idea to add them to the launch panel with "sudo" already put in. I will make an effort to do that automatically on future versions of the script.

    I just reinstalled everything to work with the new version of Xecutah and the chroot that allows multiple X windows. It's sweet, and interestingly enough this new install is behaving a lot nicer than my previous one. I guess starting from scratch cleared out some stupid crap I'd done earlier. XD

    The only issue remaining is that extensions I try to add to chromium still don't seem to install, but aside from that things are running smooth here.

    I will thank you guys in advance, as I'm sure I'll need your help again.

    I typed "sudo synaptic" in the terminal and after a little hesitation synaptic package manager did open but with a error screen on top of it stating

    E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem
    E: _cache->open () failed, please report

    so I did as the warning suggested and from the terminal typed "sudo dpkg --configure -a"

    Volia! Thanks again

    Squeaky clean.

    So, from that error it looks like there was an issue when installing florence. I did a clean install of lxde with onboard and a clean install of xfce4 with florence and both worked without issue. I would recommend wiping and trying again.

    By the way, this is using the version Ubuntu, Xecutah, etc that were in the new beta feed last night.

    I noticed that happen at one point many installs ago. Not sure what caused it and I havent seen it since. I suspect there was something fouled up in my /etc/fstab but I can't be sure.

    Everything seemed to work fine other than the annoying message. If it doesn't bother you, I don't think you need to do a reinstall.

    Is there a script or some tutorial to install a clean and working ubuntu-netbook from scratch ? I just tested above the lxde i stall and it work, but I have issues since I can't figure out how to tell ubuntu to launch gnome-session instead of lxde^^

    Not that I know of yet but you can try XFCE4 instead by rerunning zanes config files. You could also try just installing the packages but I think the stock netbook remix still uses unity which isn't working yet(as far as I know).

    I already use xfce4, and when I install ubuntu-netbook and launch it above xfce (configured with the script of this thread) it works really fine, better than installing just u-netbook from scratch.

    But it's still above xfce4, so no WM and a few bugs (ie. Xfce panel is still there, some apps won't work and other inconvenience due to a non proper config).

    I found the wiki page on webos-internals for ubuntu-netbook installation but the git repo that step 5 indicates seems to be no longer maintained. So for now I don't know how to solve that ^^

    This hasn't attracted enough attention, but it seems to fix all installation and compatibility problems I have run into.

    Just run the commands from the first post before you start Zane's runme.sh script. The poster mentions that those would have to be rerun after each restart, but for me everything still worked even after a complete reboot of the Touchpad.

    I used the auto config script and have created a very functional environment for myself.

    I wonder though if it's possible for the terminal window that starts the chroot not to show/ or at least not to take the screen at the start if the chroot?

    What kind of environment did you set up ? LXDE, XFCE, Gnome... ?

    Usually, for me at least, when installing through the script, the terminal window just minimize on desktop #2.

    lxde, chosen in the dialog from the easy-config script.
