    Is there any easy way to leave the LXDE environment and go back to the chroot command line? I tried logout but that doesn't actually shutdown LXDE. If not, how to I change it so that it doesn't launch automatically when starting the chroot. I would like to play around with setting up other GUIs and I can't seem to easily shutdown LXDE.

That should be all you need to enable sudo.
    that did it....we'll I had to adjust the command a little to "usermod -a -G admin 'username'"

    now sudo works. Thanks!!

    Or you can just run a second instance of Ubuntu Chroot and it will open a terminal that is logged into root.

    am I looking at having to completely start fresh again?
    Did you use my install script? It should have added your username to the sudoers list. I am curious if it didn't work for you.

    yea, i used the script, but not from a fresh install. i already had my username setup and lxde installed.
    also, i found a chromium extension called chrometouch. it enables iphone touch gestures. the scrolling works, butno multi-touch, but this could be an X thing.

    thanks for all the help. also, i'm up for testing out new stuff if ned be, just let me know.

    Assuming you are using my install script... If you want to get out of the environment, goto the main terminal that ran all of the start up stuff (should have been moved to desktop #2) and hit Ctrl-C. That will kill the lxsession. Make sure you have all other windows closed first.

    If you want to stop LXDE from autostarting just comment out (or remove) the line from /root/.bashrc that says "su - <USERNAME> -c 'dbus-launch startlxde' 2> /home/<USERNAME>/.startlxde.err". It should be the last line of the file.

    heh, that will return you to the chroot command line, but since the keyboard is disabled and you can no longer run florence with lxsession off. You just get a wall of ^C spam, which essentially renders command line useless. I lol'd for sure.

    It might be a java thing. If you send me a link I can try to investigate.
    I see xtightvncviewer but I don't see rdesktop under "other" or "internet", should I type apt-get install rdesktop from the ubuntu root line?

    website is eightelementswest.com, I tried to click on "book a class" on the front page with chromium and got nowhere.

    thanks, still amazed at this setup.

    well obviously, but aren't the keys still fubar'd from florence being on? Still hilarious either way. :-P

    edit: confirmed, webos keyboard remains unusable after ctrl + c to return to chroot command line. This applies only to people with the florence install obviously.

    Open a terminal and type "rdesktop <IP ADDRESS>". I am not sure if there is a menu entry.

    I will take a look at that site when I get a chance.

    Well, crud...

    EDIT: You could try doing "ps -A | grep 'lx' " and kill all of the related processes.

    A long tap should give you a rightclick in many circumstances.

    After I did this I was getting an error in chroot stating unexpected end to /root/.bashrc so like an ***** I deleted it thinking I would just rerun the script and it would rebuilt it. Well the file now only contains just the line you reference above and I am not sure how to get the old file back as it had a lot of other stuff in it. I think most of it was commented out but I am not sure. Any ideas on how to restore the old file?

    Hulu working for anyone? I should say Flash in genreal... I can tell it is installed because aspects of flash load, but no video or animated playback works. Hulu will usually tell chromium the page is hanging and ask if you want to kill it. any ideas?

    Open chromium and type
    Code:
    chrome:plugins
    into the address bar. That will show you the installed plugins. There should be two installed. Try disabling one and restartng chromium. If that doesn't work try disabling the other and restarting.

    Chances are Hulu will be disappointing at best though. The opensource flash players seem to be sub par.

    I have attached the complete file. Just copy it over your .bashrc file (make sure you rename the attached file properly). I removed the line that causes autostarting lxde.

    Hello,

    I've read this post and the first one but I didn't find how to do what I would like.

    How can we access to files which are saved in the WebOs partition from Ubuntu (videos, doc...)

    PS I'm french and may have passed through how to resolve my problems on the forum

    Thanks all seem well now. I even created a gesture for Ctrl-C to term the LXDE session when in the chroot prompt so I don't have to use the onboard keyboard because once the LXDE session ends you can't move it around and it blocks my view of the commandline.

    Thanks for all the help and a wicked script.


    Edit: Still have one more issue. I get an error stating Failed to run /usr/share/apport/apport-gtk as user root. Unable to copy the user's Xauthorization file when I start LXDE. Not sure what is causing this, however it doesn't seem to prohibit me from doing anything I have tried thus far.
