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

after loging in the first time run


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

at my c1000 its not nessesary to kill tskeys
its sufficient to edit /etc/zaurusd/mach-config-vars and put TSKEYS_DEVICE=/dev/input/event2 instead default value

another must do thing is:
set headphone, pcm, speaker to the top
unmute all left mixers (four of them) and right mixer (leave other right mixers muted)
finally enable speaker function (third control from end)

This gives clear sound through speaker and working headphones in stereo.

bass, treble, 3d set as you like. Play a bit with all of this deemphasis and filter thing if you have audiohile ear.

if your usb device does not work try dmesg and look if there is something like this:
usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using pxa27x-ohci and address 6
usb 1-2: rejected 1 configuration due to insufficient available bus power
usb 1-2: no configuration chosen from 1 choice

if you encounter problems with usb power then here is solution: https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showto...mp;hl=usb+power

tweak a bit zaurus leds:
echo mmc0 > /sys/class/leds/spitz\:green\:mail/trigger
echo ide-disk > /sys/class/leds/spitz\:amber\:charge/trigger

if you like put it in /etc/init.d/zaurusd right after echo "starting zaurusd"
this gives you blinking leds while accessing cards.

Make some swap, 64MB is quite enough for pda use, if you intend to use zaurus with zubuntu as a little laptop it may be neccessary to put some more swap.

install lynx, dillo, mpg321 (uses a lot less cpu), fbreader, consider installing mpd

after that zubuntu is very fine. I would even say it may be a new cacko.

Great job for its creators and maintainers! I dont miss cacko smile.gif

In case you encounter "Unresolved Inheritance Operation" do as https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=26703 thread says.
xfig, xpat2, xmpuzles are affected.

This would seem to be wrong or at least outdated. If I add

echo "mmc0" > /sys/class/leds/spitz\:green\:hddacti/trigger

to zaurusd then the green led blinks whilst zubuntu boots then after its booted (ie after running the zaurusd daemon) the green LED only blinks when I access the SD card.

As far as I can tell you can only have one event / device (in this case mmc0 or ide-disk) assigned per LED trigger although under 2.4 based distros my green LED would flash when I accessed either the CF or SD interfaces.

Have I misunderstood or is there a workaround for this?
