Please OP remove my old post about Ubuntu on Tab 3...
T3buntu (Had to call it something...)
What you do with this information is up to you. If your device breaks while trying anything in here you do that at your own risc.
I cant be held responsible for anything that happens to your device.
Everything in here was tested on a Samsung Galaxy Tab3 10.1(5210) if you try anything in here on any other device thats up to you.
Most of the work is made by the Linux on Android team i have just tested and fixed some stuff.
The image is ext2, x86 but im working on a ext4, AMD64 image.
1. Replaced lxde with KDE Plasma
2. Added entryś in etc/fstab for int/ext SdCards
3. Edited bootscript from the Linux on Android team so that the SdCards in the Tab is correcly mounted and works with fstab.
4. Installed "missing" packages to minimize errors.
Most of the stuff in Ubuntu.
Leftpanel is black
Slow startup, but can be fixed. I will add that later.
Some apps dont work if you start them as root.
Couldnt make jpg work as wallpaper so using png at the moment.
Rotation isnt setup since we cant use xrandr to rotate the screen..
Add init.d support on the Tab
Tweaking were ever possible.
Now for the fun stuff.
1. Root your device. I used this Guide.
2. Install Busybox.
3. Install Linux on Android.
4. Install a VNC client of your shoice, i preferr Jump Desktop free.
5. Copy bootscript.sh to /data/data/com.zpwebsites.linuxonandroid/files/ overwrite the old file.
6. Unpack and Copy the t3buntuv1.2_20131216.img to a place of your choosing on either internal or external sdcard.
7. Make a Linux on Android widget and point it to the img file you copied in 6.
OBS !! This image is preconfigured with the user ubuntu and psw t3buntu..
8. Now click on the LOA widget you made in 7 and let linux ”bootup”
9. In your VNC client connect to localhost.
DONE ! Your now in Ubuntu..
If you want more screenspace you can uncomment
# service call activity 42 s16 com.android.systemui
In bootscript.sh this will remove the android panel. The problem with this at the moment is that to
get it back you have to restart the Tab becourse the ´am´ command to get it back ”Seg faults” on
my tab and i havnt figured out why yet.
Consider this image as alpha...
OBS !! The image file is BIG 1.4GB compressed and 4GB decompressed. Will try and make it smaller not sure how the Linux on Android team made there images so small...
