Ubuntu Desktop Environment image
#1
Here is a Google Drive image anyone can download for Ubuntu with desktop environment.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwrRh39nVNPsZE1TTjZ2R0ZhZ0U

Software installed:

Ubuntu Software portal
LibreOffice Suite
Gimp
Midori web browser
Geary email
VLC

Plank
and several others.

You can flash this in linux using all the regular methods or you can use Win32 Disk Image software or something simular.

Gparted is installed and allows you to re-size the rootfs partition to the rest of your drive if it is bigger than an 8GB drive. (I will have video on doing this and renaming and changing password for the Admin User.

I have 2 users already on the image


First user has plank installed and looks simular to a Mac or Elementary OS style look. 

Second user is more of a windows base look for desktop. Chose which ever suites you and delete the other.

User Name: Ubuntu
Password: ubuntu

User Name: Ubuntu2
Password: ubuntu2


(edit Updated version coming soon.... Here is some of the things I have fixed and are now working more acceptable. )

Would really like to see the fbturbo video driver added to the mix to accellerate the Mail GPU...

Hi ML-Anderal,

I have problems with the 2GB version. The ethernet doesn't work flawlessly. I have to reduce the ethernet speed to 100 Mbs using ethtool.

Why does the Google Drive download report 7.2G file size? Why is the image that big?

It's just a mirror image of an 8gb card. Uncompressed.

The OP said it's an image for an 8GB card (they're never actually 8GB, so 7.2G is probably about right for an uncompressed image).  I usually at least zero out the unused space and compress the image before uploading it.

I really wish I could get the fbturbo to work and if I can I will add it but compiling the drivers for that I have run into issues.

I would encourage anyone who has got it to work on ubuntu to let me know how. I would be more than happy to add it to the image. I have contacted the pine team about this if not and will wait to hear back.

Until than I have the new image up and your welcome to download it and test it.

Yes this is exactly what it is! I am more than welcome on the next image to compress it to the size of file size but I just didnt see the reason.... I have pretty quick internet and forget that others are not always as lucky as I am. 

I would be more than happy to compress the next image. I just released one with sound and video working.(not sized down... sorry) but will keep it in mind for the next image!

ethtools will also be added in the next image. This is important until we can get the gigabit working. I have a usb to ethernet adapter and will be testing that to see what kind of speed I can get on it. 

Trying to find an idea of why it is fluxing out like it is at 100Mbs.
