3. download the attached .sh to that directory
5. Remount your external sd card with the following command
mount -o remount,rw,exec,suid /dev/block/vold/179:1 /mnt/sdcard-ext
6. open a terminal
7. cd /mnt/sdcard-ext/ubuntu
8. run ./
Voila it works.
Ignore any errors. Exit when done.

If you cant see a desktop when connecting through VNC.
1. From a terminal type "killall -TERM Xtightvnc" hit enter
2. From a terminal type vncserver
Then user (:1) instead of port 5900 (:0)

i have it on the internal SD... is that my issue?
