Bit of advice - don't use "apt-get install xubuntu-desktop" to change to Xfce. That wants to install a ton of stuff that is not needed. Just try installing the the meta package "xfce4" and then add the other bits you want. I then removed the Unity desktop and it booted straight in to Xfce.

Edit: Actually, in this 12.04 image doing "apt-get install xubuntu-desktop" does not appear to be as bad. A previous image wanted to download 750Mb of stuff!

Edit2: Oh, and to get xfce loading instead of Unity, you need to edit /root/.vnx/xstartup and change the last line:

/etc/X11/Xsession

to be

startxfce4

..then restart the linux chroot by typing exit
Thanks! since I'm new to Linux this guide was a bittricky but I figured it out. works much better now!

I'd suggest you post in the offical Ubuntu app thread linked on the previous pages, it's much more active and the developer is very helpful.

Paid app has been updated in the PLAY store. Now has link to new script (v7) and link to 12.04 stable (v2 image). New script adds non-SU user login, and setting a default resolution. Image downloads now have options for Torrent or Sourceforge link. (No longer dedicated FTP downloads) Torrent will need an app to work.
