But with a little patience, and very slowly dragging the stylus the wrong way, I am able to reach and activate the Icons at the top of the login screen before logging in and run the terminal. I thought that was awesome, until I tried modifying the system. Can't use cd to get to /etc because the / character is not accessible. Can't use ifconfig to set the ip address of wlan0 because the numbers are not accessible.

At least now I can access the Reboot icon and not have to pop the battery ...

And I think I figured out what's causing the boot from flash to fail. It seems it works fine if you use the button in the middle of the cursor pad to activate the flash option. But if you use the enter key, it says it's going to boot, and then power-cycles.

I guess I need to give it a rest for a while.
What's the current status on this project? Is the gui working on the n810?

Edit: Nevermind, I was able to install Ubuntu using the old method.

However, the FN key doesn't work. I read that installing xkbd from the Mer repositories would fix this, however they are also down at the moment. Does anyone by chance have the xkbd deb file from the Mer repository?

One last question while I am at it, is there a config file that controls the stylus? It works, however it seems to stick and always brings up the right-click menu. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Edit2: I found out that my touchscreen problem is related to not being able to get tslib from the Mer repos, since they are down. Are there mirrors anywhere?

Original post:

Hello, I have installed Mer .15 and LXDE on my N810, but I would really rather have Ubuntu than Mer.

However, the link seems to be down:

Could anyone please reupload ubuntu_9.04_n8x0-2.2_rootfs.tgz somewhere so I can get Ubuntu?

Thank you in advance!

Don't know if anyone is still interested in this project, but I sure am.

So far I have a very usable Jaunty installed on my N810. I have the following working:
LXDE Desktop
Right click support by holding the stylus down
FN key
Pipe mapped to fn+z, tab mapped to fn+space
Numbers all work
Automatic login

I am still trying to get sound working, but I think I am really close.
I'm also trying to get a battery indicator, which is proving quite difficult so far.

I have not even tried the camera, microphone, gps, or bluetooth yet. I want to install Skype, but it isn't available in the Jaunty repos...

So in short, yes the GUI is working.
