[MOD] Full Ubuntu on the Atrix (now fully automated)
Before installing or modifying make sure that you don't (or any dependencies) upgrade: (as per Sogarth)
Be careful upgrading any of the -mot/~mot packages, as that can break functionality. I'm still compiling a list of which packages can be upgraded versus which can be left alone.
Can be upgraded with loss of functionality:
Upgrading these packages plus at least one additional package I've not yet fully identified breaks viewing mountable storage and the ability to unmount it.
Using the stock xserver-xorg-core 2:1.6.0-0ubuntu14 that's already installed without recovering /usr/bin/Xorg appears to lead to a loss of the status bar at the top. This particular issue is now handled by the script.
Cannot be upgraded:
This breaks aiw (Android In Window) so that there's no frame around the window and it can no longer be manipulated in any way.
This will likely break displaying aiw (Android In Window) as the unlocking mechanism for the screensaver. Still needs to be tested.
Working Ubuntu Apps:
- Pidgin (SOUND! install gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio)
- gnome-panel (switch between webtop and gnome-session mouse to top of screen)
- VLC works (tested MKV video, music a little choppy)
- Rhythmbox (thread )
- Open Office
