I don't think so. Also look at Gnumeric (included in my image), it is lighter than OpenOffice.

Thanks for warning me : the link was broken (wrong name) since yesterday. Now it is fixed.

I've tried without success : MTermite doesn't seem to work to launch other softwares.

Workaround : tap the "Debian Chroot" icon, close it. Open MTermite, type "opensh", then "debian".

Fantastic news ! MeeGo virtual keyboard is now also working (inside LXDE) on PR1.3 !

Because Javispedro has released today a new version of xmimd which also works on h PR1.3 ! See the 1st post updated. Install xmimd_1.1 and voilą, now you have a fast Easy Debian running on LXDE with any MeeGo virtual keyboard : default, english with arrows, swype (which has arrows mode), etc.

For PR1.2 users : please test if xmimd_1.1 work for you, i.e., virtual keyboard is ok on LXDE.

Awsome. Just seen the post by Javispedro in the other thread before coming here, I almost did a little dance to celebrerate the updated xmimd.

Thanks for the workaround about MTermite, I'll try that.

Another question/issue: I launched LXDE using the icon, and then tried to play a .mp3 file. By default, there was no application associated with .mp3 files, so the pop-up asked me to select one. I selected "Music Player" and set it as the default application for this filetype. Now I have a new icon in the Meego Harmattan homescreen, a red square called "Music Player". Nothing happens if I click on it, be it with chroot enabled or not, LXDE open or not. I can't remove it by a long press as there is no red cross to delete it, and in /usr/share/applications, I found no music*.desktop file containing "Music Player" in the Name line. Any idea?

[Edit] I realized that Openoffice applications launched from icons do not run in fullscreen mode; same for Synaptic. Is it normal? Abiword and Gnumeric do, for instance.

Search for it in "/home/user/.local/share/applications/".

Alright, there was a lxmusic*.desktop there, deleting it solved the problem. Don't know exactly why it appeared. Will a new icon appear for every application set as default for a given filetype inside LXDE?

Hmm I think I have a problem. I did all the steps on the front page in order. Everything installed ok.
However, nothing happens when I click on the icons, and my installed apps is up to 3.1GB (not sure what it was before).
Is there any way to check where/if the image installed to?
If it didn't due to size, is there an easy way to see what the hell is eating all that room?
Cheers

Where did you extract your debian image and where did you mount it? Try to keep the image file inside your MyDocs folder so it belongs to "user data" and not "installed apps".

The image file was in MyDocs (.downloads (the hidden one, not sure why I put it here)). I just ran the command as per page 1:
xz -d debian-m5-v3e-Sci-2GB.img.ext2.lzma

any ideas?

I'm not sure if the hidden .downloads folder is responsible for this, and I cannot check right now. Try moving the image to /home/user/MyDocs and check your disk usage.
