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 batch of tweaks:

Do not use LXDE, it has a bug (not sure which component) causing high cpu usage after resume (probably something with changing date/time too rapidly) and it doesnt have fill-all-space behaviour.

Install aosd_cat as osd functionality.
in .xbindkeysrc put similar configuration to display-backlight for volume controls (amixer sput PCM ...)
and for checking battery.
Add some osd to those scripts to have nice OSD while changing volume, brightness and similar. It is independent from WM-s.
Aosd_cat is very early version but it works quite nicely (lacks bar and multi line functionality)

In my experience changing the date once the gui is up causes MAXout of theCPU and eventual lockup. The only way I've found round this is to set the date at first login at the command line.
