I'll have a play on lunch - but I don't know if I have enough time, but thank you very much for linking this in!

If I do't have time on my lunch - I'll give it a go on my lunch!

Hello, Walter, and thank you for sharing this.

I´m fighting with my Elfin but I think Rhobuntu needs at least 1,6 GB of free space in the SD card.

So, with my 1GB card, I think I´m sold .

Greetings.

I have the same problem after starting the desktop and the icons bar on the botton, the device show the keyboard but I'm not able to move the cursor with the stylus.
please note that the device shows me only part of the keyboard, seem like that the resolution is wrong.
During the startup the font changes size. can be related to the wrong resolution??
No actions can be done with the sistem.

thanks and let me know if more information is need

This thread made me come up with a new prefix for these threads.

[LNX]

So put [LNX] in threads for Non Android Linux builds. So users can easily identify or search for specific threads.

Spread the word mate

With /dev/input/event3 it works well.

AmiPro wrote a new detection script for touchscreen.

Now Rhobuntu works on HTC ELF.
