I have been working on getting ubuntu running natively with the netbook gui (unity) on the galaxy tab (7" touch display at this resolution is ideal). Kernel and filesystem are almost complete, but I need one last piece of the puzzle, if anyone has the galaxy tab hardware keyboard and know how to flash a kernel with heimdall could they join and catch my attention (lilstevie there too)

Here is a screenshot of netbook-launcher-efl running on the tab

Ubuntu Desktop 2D


e17 Illume-home (phone/tablet)

EDIT1: Ubuntu is now booting into a shell more coming soon

EDIT2: screen shot

EDIT3: added 2 extra screenshots

EDIT4: updated name to follow new rules.
Coming soon is a CDMA kernel and Images

Anyway to get the netbook edition of Ubuntu instead of the full desktop version? Seems like it would be better with the smaller screen.

From the Tab.
