I like it, but I'm confused as to why you didn't use the Touchpad's launcher

Or you could run the build-desktop script.

I have the live cd and could only get it to run on virtual box. also open webos is not quite usable, no app store or any apps for daily use.

Indeed. I would love this.

@Oldskool: Yes you could. But how does one install an app on that? I mean, let's say you have an Enyo app, for example Dash Weather. How would one install that there? Because I haven't found a way yet.

Did you mean to @ that to me? well, if you have the desktop webos actually on your hard drive, you can add apps to ~/luna-desktop-binaries/rootfs/usr/palm/applications/

I know several people that use that for their email .. not entirely sure why though i mean, webOS email is great.. for a mobile device ..
