the changes are made at a kernel level, so my suggestion would be to modify the keyboard layout that you use in ubuntu for it. there are far more reasons to have it this way than the android way.

I haven't run my tf101 with acceleration for a really long time, but the login screen slow down issue I have seen on my trimslice (also tegra2) although not seen it on my tf201. I don't use gnome-shell so I cannot comment on that

A bit off topic but im interested to know if the tegra 3 runs Ubuntu any better then then the tegra 2, im tempted to upgrade to a tf300t when it gains Ubuntu but whether it will run Ubuntu any better the tf101 is really the deciding factor.

Cheers

This is under development atm, 12.04 for TF101. The dev is still working out a few of the kinks, but it's got a lot of promise.

Hello World
Hello world! I'm new here.

i got the lilstevie's precise pangolin running on my B60, energized by the 3.1.10 jintha kernel, using/hacking the OLiFE scripts suit to flash them on my device.
thank u guys for having done a so wonderful job! while the procedure is pretty easy to follow, i still dont understand how the partitions works, and more specific: what's the relation between the nvflash config file and what u get at runtime in /dev?
any help on this would be great!

Thumbs up TF300 Support
Just so you know, as of today there's a working method to enable nvflash on the TF300T and TF300TG:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1894867

How awesome it would be for all TF300 owners to dualboot Ubuntu on their devices

Ah, I'm jealous. We SL101 owners still have fear of bricking without NvFlash!
