Having installed ZUBUNTU for the first time, here are some bits that people might find of use

after loging in the first time run

ts_calibrate

to calibrate your touch screen

run killall tskeys

to get some free memory

ensure dhcp is running properly by changing the 102 and 103 entries for dhcp in /etc/passwd to 0

get your wifi / network running by looking on the forums

once you have internet connectivity, install synaptic so you can find packages with

apt-get install synaptic

now you're ready to rock

Another chunk of post install tweaks.

Put
CODE
#middle mouse click
"xte 'mouseclick 2'"
    Shift + b:1

in /root/.xbindkeysrc to have middle click with shift key (right click with Control is already there). Finally it is possible to use xfig smile.gif without mouse.

put
CODE
xhost +
in .xinitrc to have screen flipping working (xrandr from zaurus-hinge script cant connect to X and thus not working).

Edit /etc/zaurusd/zaurus-hinge and put there display-brightness.sh off just after #echo "sleeping"
and display-brightness.sh on after #echo "lanscape".
Change /bin/display-brightness.sh script

put
CODE
elif [ "$1" = "off" ]; then
    if [ $BRIGHTNESS -ne 0 ];then
    echo "$BRIGHTNESS" >/tmp/backlight
    echo 0 > $BRIGHTNESS_FILE
    fi
elif [ "$1" = "on" ]; then
    cat /tmp/backlight > $BRIGHTNESS_FILE
    rm /tmp/backlight

just after "fi" in "down" section.

This will give you turned off screen when lid is closed (but screen will be lit while in portrait mode)

change
CODE
STEP=5
MAX_BRIGHTNESS=47
MIN_BRIGHTNESS=0
in this script according to /sys/class/backlight/$DRIVER/max_brightness
or just uncomment
CODE
#MAX_BRIGHTNESS=`cat /sys/class/backlight/$DRIVER/max_brightness`
line (I suppose someone put there a artificial limit to save batteries smile.gif or it is a legacy from other zaurus model) In c1000 max is 47.

put
CODE
/root/repeatoff
in /root/.xinitrc and put there a repeat-rate-workaround:
CODE
#!/bin/sh
xset r on
for k in 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 20 59 60 70
do
xset -r "$k"
done
It is a bit modified version of solution provided by gojira here http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=25165. I added escape key to non repeated keys (useful in mc)

All files modified are attached.

Edit: did minor changes, attachments updated.
