Why do people constantly spread wrong information?!

Use the original Ubuntu Xenial image from longsleep. This already has full HW accelerated video support (look into /etc/profile to see what's necessary, the real work has been done mostly by Jens Kuske a while ago). 2D acceleration is also provided by longsleep: https://launchpad.net/~longsleep/+archiv...our-makers

So simply choose not a crappy but a good OS image, add the desktop environment of your choice, add the ppa stuff and then all that's missing is Mali support (since weeks we hear the "someone asked someone who confirmed that someone else will provide Mali binaries 'next week'" story). 

Who needs Mali support mostly? 3D games that should be played better in Android anyway.

Sorry. Haven't noticed it was already working. My bad...
Mali support is good for full hd youtube videos and for 4K, when it's working also (i hope i'm not making the same mistake here).
It takes work away from the processor, so that we have a more responsive OS.
It might not be for you or for everyone, but definitely has some use for me and, i think, many others.
