In this thread, I would like people to post the names of Debian apps that they have found that run well on the tablets, or at least they are the best / fastest alternative you've found to provide a service you find valuable.

An example of the second kind of application (best alternative) would be the Kazehakase browser. It isn't as fast as MicroB, our built-in browser, but it can run Java applets and it seems somewhat faster than Iceweasel.



If you have posted programs elsewhere in the other Debian threads, it would probably be a good idea to re-post them here.

I installed aMule which works well. I had to change the permissions of the folder it installed in to get it working, but working well now.

gnubg, jester an othello clone and gnomesword all have worked well for me so far. Although I just started adding apps and plan on quite a few more.

How did you install Kazehakase? Using Synaptic I receive an error that some packages can't be downloaded.

Thanks!

Debian>Programs>Applications>Terminal Emulators>X-Terminal as root (you need your password to get root access, the same password as you are using Hildon)>apt-get update, be patient, it takes 2-3 min.

Debian>Programs>Applications>Systems>Package Management>Synaptic Package Manager>(you need password again) choose Kazehakase and answer yes when asked about Marked all (that would choose Kazehakase and kazehakase greco), wait till successful change made.

Qole may have a different trick. That is how I did it.

Yes, I had the same problem. I had to do "apt-get update" first ("Edit" -> "Reload Package Information" packages in Synaptic), and then, 17 minutes later, when it had finished updating, I tried again and it worked.
