Help Me I am having a problem! Feel free to email us at any time. We will do our best to respond right away.
We are working on Ubuntu 12! That's why development is a bit stuck for the moment.
If you have any problem please write an Email to us!
Ubuntu 12 is cancelled for now as we are having other issues:
Some of you weren't able to download the image. Please help us to find the issue by contacting support!
We are not able to reply or identify comments made here so we can not help any of you if you don't contact us.
Did you ever want to have a fully qualified Linux Desktop environment on your Android Device?
Here you are!
Ubuntu kickstart will run a whole LXDE under Ubuntu on top of your android.
This App does not replace your Android installation! Ubuntu will be ran in CHRoot environment using your android kernel.
Just a not on Ubuntu Version:
We might update the ROM to a newer Ubuntu Version depending on release state of ARM-Compatible Packages. I will look into this. Currently we are using >Ubuntu 9<
-Android-VNC-Viewer (App will guide you to installation automatically)
-5 GB (3GB for small image) of free space, >> 6 GB (4 GB for small image) while installling << on your /sdcard (On Devices with internal storage, that might be mounted to /sdcard)
I N F O R M A T I O N
Support for Android devices running Gingerbread(2.3) is experimental.
If the App does not work as expected and your Return Time is over feel free to contact me with your Bug-Report!
-Which device do you use
-Which ROM is installed (including link ans Android version)
-What did not work
-If you can attach a Logcat
We will find a solution.
NOTE: This App is available in English and German language. However Ubuntu itsel is only preserved in ENGLISH!
So what is the use of this App?
You can do many things with your droid. But did you ever try to create or show a presentation? Android Office Apps like QuickOffice or PolarisOffice do not really support animations and can be annoying...
This is the reason why you can now use OpenOffice.org for your office work on your Android device!
Did you ever encounter the problem that any page did not render correctly on your android device? Mainly Web 2.0 Pages?
Not aproblem anymore! Just use a real desktop FireFox from now on.
You are a developer and want to edit your work on te go? You can use Eclipse fully functional on your Device noow - just using Ubuntu Kickstart.
And that is just a small span of usabilities.
Try it out on your own - NOW!
Thanks to OpenSourceGangster on Facebook for providing his Ubuntu-Image to us. I use this as a base for our version.
The Image is available for free. You do only pay for the work in the App itself.
Note: If you purchase the App you do NOT HAVE TO DOWNLOAD THIS manually.
@Scott: I personally hate people just rating 1 Star without contacting support. How should we fix your problem without a problem report?
Now with Lidroid file plugin for Ubuntu One installed, it will be a totally different story.

It enables you to enjoy unlimited convenience and it is very easy to install and operate. Now you do not need to waste your time on waiting for the files to be downloaded any more. It’s all because of this revolutionary change that Lidroid file brings to you.

This application will allow you to install a complete Debian distribution in your Android device. Based on chroot, it will perform a standard debootstrap and install a legacy Debian so that you can install, and run any classic Linux command, tool, daemon or service.
The package has few limitations; it is not restricted to Debian; we already offer the choice to use Ubuntu, and will add more distributions in close future. Each distribution is available in several tastes (stable, testing ...). It will not require to reboot; chroot is run inside Android. Installation can be done on any storage device, either on SD card, or inernal memory; no need to repartition any thing, run mkfs or fdisk. We do with what you let use. If you have almost nothing, the package will manage with almost nothing; if you can afford for a large ext4 partition on your SD card, the package will be happy to use it.
It will allow you to install all classic LAMP services like Apache, MySql, PHP, Samba, Netatalk, or just any classic Linux tool like vim, xterm, aterm, Abiword, Firefox, dillo, wget, cron, Perl, Python ... just everything.
Package utilisation will require a rooted device.
Reasons to install this package can not be listed. Just too many: want a cron daemon ? want to have gcc inside your phone ? want to recompile some kernel driver because the legacy Android driver for your Wi-Fi card has is bogus or limited ? want to use vim, or the real full featured desktop ls, ip, nmap, or top commands ? this package will give you all this for free, and much much more.
- an Android device based on some Linux kernel
- a rooted environment
- 300M free space
Only 50MiB to download for a basic Debian, and down to 180MiB space used if you select the Directory method.
Optionnal registration on our website, http://android.galoula.com/LinuxInstall/Register.php , will allow you to use advanced management features, and install package from within the application interface. You will not need to type any strange command in any terminal. And you will be able to make some services start automaticly at phone boot, and/or application start.
Online documentation: http://android.galoula.com/en/LinuxInstall/
Quick installation guide: http://android.galoula.com/en/LinuxInstall/QuickTutorial.html
The interface have been completely redesigned, and the English language have been rewritten. Any one who feels like translating is welcome to contact us. Even the French language part should be re-translated from English.

This application will allow to use your device as a remote mouse and keyboard for your PC/PS3.
Since low level apis are used, there is no way by now to ensure 100% compatibility with all devices (because of different bluetooth implementations of some vendors): if the log says "invalid or inactive bluetooth device" your only option is to try a different ROM like Cyanogenmod (if available).
- Open the application and click on the start button (top/left button ">")
- Check for errors in the log window
- IMPORTANT: if you got the error "invalid or inactive bluetooth device", your device is not supported and your only option is to try a different ROM like Cyanogenmod (I cannot fix that because the problem is at "kernel" level).
- Pair your device with an host of your choice*
- Once paired, click on the lens button (secondo top/left) to refresh the available bluetooth devices
- Click on a device of your choice to establish a connection
- Once connected a green screen should appear
- Single press to simulate the left mouse button (the background should change in blue)
- Double press to simulate the right mouse button (the background should change in red)
- Hit "menu" to show/hide/change the keyboard
- PS3: works
- Linux: works (tested on Ubuntu 10.10)
- Windows 7: not working yet
- MAC: ? (not tested)
- Vizio Internet TV: works
