I have been very keen on getting this functional on my Netwalker and it seems to be working. It does require mixing packages which may potentially cause problems. This was scraped together from various sources.

(From http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/kapper1224/diary/201003120000/)

Add lucid to /etc/apt/sources.list:
 
CODE
 #deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty main universe multiverse restricted
 deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ lucid main universe multiverse restricted


CODE
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install firefox
sudo aptitude install openoffice.org
sudo aptitude install netbook-remix-efl


Note: It is probably better to remove lucid from apt sources.list file or alternatively to have both jaunty & lucid available use apt pinning described below.

This is required before betbook-launcher-efl will run:
(From http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/sear...clnk&gl=us)

CODE
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libembryo-ver-svn-02.so.0 /usr/lib/embryo.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libembryo-ver-svn-02.so.0 /usr/lib/embryo.so


Auto launch:
Add netbook-launcher-efl to
Preferences -> Startup Applications

To get the remix theme without requiring Ctrl-Alt-Esc:
In System tools/Configuration editor -> set apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop to false,

or

(From http://www.mybookmarks.ro/linux/how-to-add...el-locked-fix/)

Ubuntu Netbook Edition 2D:
CODE
sudo ln -s /etc/xdg/xdg-une/autostart/maximus-autostart.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/ #this makes Maximus run at login
sudo ln -s /etc/xdg/xdg-une-efl/autostart/netbook-launcher-efl.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/ #this launches the UNE interface at login
sudo ln -s /usr/share/gconf/une/default/20_une-gconf-default /usr/share/gconf/defaults/
sudo ln -s /usr/share/gconf/une/mandatory/20_une-gconf-mandatory /usr/share/gconf/defaults/
sudo update-gconf-defaults


Then log out and in the the GDM login screen, chose "GNOME" instead of "Ubuntu Netbook Edition" or "Ubuntu Netbook Edition 2D"

For those living on the edge (i.e. make a recovery disk first): you could try Apt Pinning:
Add lucid & jaunty to /etc/apt/sources.list:
 
CODE
 deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty main universe multiverse restricted
 deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ lucid main universe multiverse restricted


sudo vi /etc/apt/preferences
CODE
Package: *
Pin: release a=jaunty
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release a=lucid
Pin-Priority: 600



Then do:
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude safe-upgrade -> this may take a while to sort out conflicts

Notes on pinning:

Install package from specific version:
apt-get install -t lucid package
or
aptitude -t lucid install package

Check what versions of "package" are available:
apt-cache policy package

Keep a package from being updated:
echo package hold | dpkg --set-selections

Restore:
echo package install | dpkg --set-selections



Alternatives to pinning -> compile source from a development version:

Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list
CODE
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu intrepid main restricted universe multiverse
sudo apt-get update


CODE
sudo apt-get build-dep package
sudo apt-get -b source -t lucid package



Regards,
Stefan
