Realising this is a comunity effort so rather than having a winge that such and such app isnt available, I thought it might be an idea to see if we can get some people together to add to the zubuntu feeds.

I have no idea where to start but it sounds like some of the people in the forum do. So If anyone has some time to post up a howto then we might be able to get everything thats posible to package packaged and then we will all benefit.

I'm assuming we would need to either cross compile on a PC (gulp) or download source and compile on the Z (slow)

Comments / abuse / howto's welcome


(posted from my C1000 running ZUBUNTU rc1 and Dillo)

PS one of the things that makes UBUNTU so usable is not so much that its any better than any other distro, its more that there is user friendly documentation everywhere you look.

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

My problem

My Printer is on one side of what used to be my office but now is a landing as we have extended the house. As my phone and wireless router is stuck on the other side of the hall I've been looking at setting the printer up using wireless but then I thought hm I have a C1000 that isnt getting much use at the moment and my printer is USB

So the question is will the Z be able to be setup as a print server connecting to my WIFI router and the printer over USB?

I would not need to print from the Z just pass the printstream on to the USB from a static IP address

Any pointers ROM version / Packages / configs welcome

If you are getting the cursor keys rotated in the game you are playing in screen magnifiex mode (320x240) edit the script that is run by the icon

eg: /home/QTPalmtop/bin/heretic-demo

and add these lines near the top of the script (not the first line)


if this doesnt fix things try using 1 instead

let me know how you get on
