You can also mount and copy Q4OS image using any Linux computer this way:
sudo kpartx -av q4os-pinebook-1806.img
sudo mount /dev/mapper/loop0p2 /mnt/some_mount_point/

Copy "pinebook-q4os.img" from /mnt/some_mount_point/pinebook-q4os.img, and remove loop:
sudo umount /mnt/some_mount_point/
sudo kpartx -d q4os-pinebook-1806.img

Q4OS is running fine and does use less memory ike Ubunu Mate :-)

Two first things:
I got Video playing in VLC only via the slow X11-Driver (no VDPAU) - will there be better GFX-Card Suppport?
renaming Iconson the Dektop works onl in the second try (not ony on Pinebook - also on a x86 Laptop and RPi3)

But Chromium and Firefox is very useable :-)

I like the MATE-console- and it could be installed without problems :-)
Chromium and LibreOffice in Software Centre can not be installed, version 1806.

adminq, and it says could not connect to network, but I have connected my wireless already.
BTW, I saw the kernel is used ayufan' kernel, and could we use latest ayufan's kernel? How can do that?
If you open a text-console/shell, did ifconfig tell you that you got a IP from your network?
Did you use DHCP or static IP?
Can you ping (DNS of Google)?

Thanks for that report, however I am not able to reproduce so far. I would need to get more detailed description and procedure to reproduce.

I can make and rename new desktop shortcut, for example, this way:
- Open Start menu and navigate "Applications > Programs" folder
- Drag "Terminal Program" icon and drop it elsewhere to desktop, a context menu appears
- Select "Copy here"
- Now I am able to rename the desktop icon using "right mouse click > rename" or "F2" key

Please specify some more details for us to be able to reproduce and fix the issue you have described.
