nMind 0.6e(previously mindbuntu)

nMind 0.6e

Based on Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04. Not supported by ubuntu, this iso is not an official ubuntu release. By using this ISO you agree that you will hold no one liable for anything that may go wrong. This iso is meant to be distributed freely with no support whatsoever.

That being said. nMind is a remix of Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04. It is fully compatible with ubuntu 9.04 and has been remixed with drivers installed for the clarionmind.


-name changed from mindbuntu to nMind.
-poulsbo gma500 drivers installed
-mplayer-vaapi installed( UL11L chipset limitation ul11l does not play HD)
-wireless installed(does not work from suspend)
-touchscreen installed(still random hard lockup related to driver)(hold for right click)
-touchscreen calibration located in Accessories --> Touch Screen
-sound installed
-CellWriter virtual keyboard + handwriting recognition
-w32codecs installed
-smplayer installed(setup for mplayer-vaapi)(when playing sometimes video may appear to be frozen. Use the arrow buttons to move foward or back and the playing will resume.)
-play h.264 in smplayer(accelerated)(totem set to default media player)(right click and choose open with smplayer)
-play non accelerated video in totem
-Firefox 3.6
-Flashplayer 10.1 beta 3
-grab + drag and adblock pro installed
-sun java installed
-gpsd installed(set to /dev/ttyS1)(unsure if it works)
-gps navigation software installed(untested see above)
-deluge torrent client installed
-nautilus-scripts installed
-xrandr commands removed. they still work, just make your own. The commands are:
xrandr --output LVDS0 --mode 800x480 --scale 2x2

The "2x2" is the maximum scale of 1600x960. You can change that to 1.1x1.1, 1.2x1.2, 1.25x.1.25, 1.5x1.5, or 1.75x1.75. So for example you go to Preferences --> Main Menu --> choose a location --> then you can add a new item. I choose Favorites. Click "New Item". Name it something related to the scale setting(xrandr 1.35x1.35). Enter this into the command section:
xrandr --output LVDS0 --mode 800x480 --scale 1.35x1.35

then click ok.
There is a major performance hit when using the xrandr commands and you must reboot or restart x to get back to 800x480.

Compiz is not setup in this version If you want gnome + compiz grab mindbuntu_0.4c.iso.

Install Instructions for internal ssd
-On the screen where you setup your user name and password make sure to scroll down and choose the Auto Login option. Otherwise you wont be able to login because there is no virtual keyboard on the login screen.
-On the summary screen click on the "Advanced" button. Make sure to choose to install the bootloader on to sda.(or choose whatever drive you setup in the partitioning step)
