Palm - Ubuntu ChRoot + LXDE on Palm Pre.

UbuntuChroot + LXDE for WebOS

Travis Antonio Projects

Hello my friends!.

The July 17 I was testing Ubuntu Chroot, then I was testing some APPs like "Synergy-Foss", "Chromium-Browser", "VNC" and some others, then I just got a idea to put a GUI in the XServer, first I tried to put XFCE4 but it was a big fail because of the graphics then I tried twice but any ways was fail "not a big :P".

The July 20 I tried to install LXDE but after install only was shown the Wallpaper desktop screen, nothing else, I though I was doing something bad but when I saw the log there was not xorg.conf, then I made one for generic drivers and I did put it on /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and the Desktop UI was fully functionally, then I tried Synergy through my Windows 7 and was like I dunno but was awesome!. =D

MY PALM PRE PLUS PHOTOS:

There was some bugs after install LXDE:

-Chromium after started the XServer resets.

-LXDE Terminal does not work.

-Monitor settings does not work.

/-----------------/

Guide:

-Install Preware.

-Put testing feeds on Preware:

PLEASE READ THIS RULES BEFORE USE TESTING FEEDS:

Name: webos-testing-all

URL:

Name: webos-testing-armv7

URL:

-On Preware install next:

*Install Xecutah

*SDLTerminal

-Open SDLTerminal

-In SDLTerminal do the next:

Code:

cd /media/internal

dd if=/dev/zero of=ubuntu.img bs=1024 count=1048576

mkfs.ext3 -F -b 1024 ubuntu.img 1048576

mkdir /media/ext3fs

The next image will be 1GB(1048576) if you need more just multiply (1048576)*2= 2097152(2GB)

-mount -o loop /media/internal/ubuntu.img /media/ext3fs

-Open Preware again

-NOW TO ENJOY!. =)
