Another amazing compilation for the Internet Tablet (n800 and n770).
KDE and all it's supporting programs have been compiled for the Internet Tablet, and it works b-e-a-utifully. I've installed this sucker on my N770 and it purrs like a kitten, believe it or not ;)
This huge project was undertaken by another genius at Internet Tablet Talk, guy goes by the name of Penguinbait! This is for slightly more advanced users than my usual tutorials, but it is extremely simply if you have ever worked with Linux before. Oh, eh, by the way, you'll need a spare mmc card lying about to install this on, it won't fit on the flash ^^'
So, here are the directions...
1. Do this. (Warning: This will erase ALL data on your MMC card! Be careful to save anything you wish to save!)
2. Follow these instructions.
3. Boot from the MMC card.
4. Download this and place it in "/" "root" on your tablet. (Ubuntu and Debian users can do this with gFTP)
5. Now, open an X-term on you tablet or an SSH session connected to it. Sign in as root, either through "gainroot" or through SSH.
6. Run these commands...
apt-get install bzip2
/tar-temp/bin/tar jxvf KDE356FINAL1.tar.bz2
7. That will take... forever. So, let it go for a while. You may have to re-do the last command of step six, sometimes tar goes awry ;)
8. Restart the Tablet and boot fomr the MMC, there should now be an option under "Extras" for KDE
Thanks a lot Penguinbait for this great contribution to the life of the IT! The original post can be found here. Hope you guys have enoyed this little how-to!
OH! And just a little personal message. This site will be updated as often as possible (usually daily on week-days and bi-daily on weekends, because being a student sucks ;) So don't think I've just gone and quit!) And...
