Ubuntu Linux on Huawei Ideos X5

Hi all, I managed to install Ubuntu on my Huawei Ideos X5 following THIS guide. It's relly cool and you can use WIFI to browse Mozilla. But I have a problem with the keyboard, it works but is way off normal. Like when i type "d" "f" shows up and so on, so the keyboard is impossible to use.

Luckily there's a solution and you're supposed to do this to get it work:

In VNC’s xstartup file:

$HOME/.vnc/xstartup

You have to add the line

export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1

before

/etc/X11/Xsession

I think you have to do this in cmd, because when I go to /data/local/ubuntu/root/.vnc/xstartup the file is 97 bytes, but empty.

Anyway this is how Ubuntu looks like on Huawei Ideos X5:

I found a better Ubuntu boot-file which works for our phone. It is MUCH faster ( x5 at least ) and pre-installed with many programs. I even found a way to connect the phone to PC, for using th laptop screen as a screen for Ubuntu. And keyboard works :D

Check Out This Video! : http://www.youtube.c...h?v=KUG9aC_tH5s

Okay, so I start my terminal app, do su, cd /sdcard/ubuntu, sh ubuntu.sh

Then it starts booting it. i w8 15min, and still booting. when i try to connect with following info: 127.0.0.1:5009 and pw ubuntu

It comes upp with following "conection refused". there. tried 3 different terminal apps.

Well, maybe miui doesn't support looping?

Thats weird.. If you look at the video you can see I'm using MIUI. I see you use the port 5009, it is supposed to be port 5900 I think, if that matters. I will try again on the latest MIUI release ;)

e. and there is no need to wait 15 min, 15 seconds is long enought :)

e2. Works for me on 20/8/11 MIUI release. The port 5009 does NOT work :D use port 5900
