Running a (chroot) Ubuntu Desktop on the Nexus 7 2013 (flo and deb) doesn't work out of the box (yet). But it's amazing to see this running on a killer-display like this one.

Please follow these steps to get it running:

- Install 'Complete Linux Installer' https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zpwebsites.linuxonandroid
- Install 'Android VNC' https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=android.androidVNC
- Install 'Android Terminal Emulator' https://play.google.com/s...ls?id=jackpal.androidterm

- Get this zip-file: http://sourceforge.net/pr...MALL.ext4.v1.zip/download
- Unpack and rename these files to 'ubuntu.img' and 'ubuntu.img.md5'
- Move your ubuntu.img and ubuntu.img.md5 to /storage/emulated/0/ubuntu/
- Edit /data/data/com.zpwebsites.linuxonandroid/files/bootscript.sh
- Find the line that says: '$bbox mount -t ext2 /dev/block/loop255 $mnt'
change the value 'ext2' to 'ext4'
- Save this .sh-file
- Now, in the Complete Linux Installer App, go to 'Launch'.
- Edit the entry with the location to the .img-file, which is going to be: /storage/emulated/0/ubuntu/ubuntu.img
- You are now able to 'Launch'

* It seems I have to 'type' exit in the terminal to get this script going...
** Make sure to watch the command-line to change the user-credentials

Edit: sourceforge URL modified, props to LinuZZ

Yup, I've done that, I intend to write more tutorials like this one in the near future, which will also be in English :)

Of je schrijft de blog in het Nederlands, je weet wel, de taal die we normaal hier op t.net spreken :)

Goed punt. De blog is echter goed te vinden met Google. Daarom heb ik bewust voor een Engelse post gekozen. ;)

The URL should be http://sourceforge.net/pr...MALL.ext4.v1.zip/download
