[2/5/2016][DEPRECATED]Script to automate GUI installation on Ubuntu
#1
***************************************************************ALERT***************************************************************
          THIS TOOL HAS BEEN DEPRECATED. PLEASE USE THIS NEW TOOL TO INSTALL A GUI ON UBUNTU. THIS THREAD IS FOR ARCHIVE PURPOSES ONLY
***********************************************************************************************************************************

Hey guys. I have coded a shell script to install a gui on your Pine64 Ubuntu installation.

https://github.com/Terra854/pine64-ubuntu-gui

Currently, the script is in beta, which means that there might be problems introduced after running the script. If there is problems and you are able to come out a fix for it, I will certainly welcome you to create a pull request in my repository.

Changelog:

-----17/04/2016-----
- Initial Release

-----20/04/2016-----
- KDE now starts automatically after Kubuntu is installed

-----24/04/2016-----
- Major changes to the script that will now install a more complete environment rather than the bare minimum of components.

-----25/04/2016-----
- The 'fix-whatever' shell script by longsleep will now execute automatically after the environment is installed
- Root is now required in order to execute the script

-----05/02/2016-----
- Included new drivers
- Included new software for Lubuntu installation.

Just my 2 cents...
The title makes it look like you made a graphical application to install Ubuntu on the Pine.
I would change it to something like: "Script to automate DE installation on Ubuntu"

Thanks for the tip. I've changed the title accordingly.

Well, it let's you choose between the default Unity desktop, KDE, Xfce, LXDE, GNOME, MATE and Ubuntu Studio. So you can consider this as an extension of the install-mate-desktop.sh script.

Ah, that is very neat. KDE ? Rly ? does that even run on the Pine64?

Yup! It's working fine (apart from the HDMI overscan issue which I am not sure when it is going to be fixed)

KDE can't start automatically as kdm is missing in the Ubuntu arm64 archive. You can only start it manually by typing 'startx' in the command line.

Here is the image

Alright folks, the installer script has been updated. The reason kdm is missing is because kde has deprecated kdm in favour of sddm as it's new display manager, so it got removed from the Ubuntu archives. I have changed the code so that sddm is installed during Kubuntu installation. Now, KDE should start automatically during boot.

Hello everyone.

The script has now been updated. This update includes major changes to the script that will now install a more complete environment rather than the bare minimum of components.
