Lubuntu 13.10 Code Monkey for ODROID-X (20140101)

Unread post by robroy » Wed Oct 09, 2013 4:33 am

I created an Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander image, forked from the official XFCE Hard Kernel release, with a core suite of applications for web and application development.

Download the image here:
13.10 Saucy Salamander: http://oph.mdrjr.net/robroyhall/images/ ... 101.img.xz
13.04 Raring Ringtail: http://oph.mdrjr.net/robroyhall/images/ ... 101.img.xz

Want to upgrade your existing Code Monkey image?
Kernel updates: http://builder.mdrjr.net/tools/kernel-update.sh

Username: odroid
Password: odroid

Username: root
Password: odroid

Applications: Firefox, Chromium, Xine, Gimp, Transmission, Filezilla, Oracle JDK 8, Tomcat, MySQL, Apache 2, JRuby, PHP 5, QT 5, Arduino, Scratch, Squeak, Git, Subversion, Android Debug Bridge (ADB) and Putty.

Development Environments: Bluefish, CodeBlocks IDE, CodeLite, Geany, Monkey Studio IDE, Netbeans IDE and Ninja IDE.

Autologin is enabled and boots directly to a single-user Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment (LXDE) running Metacity and Xfce desktop.

If you enjoy my contributions to the Hard Kernel community, please consider donating an amount of your choice via the link in my signature.

Customizations left for you upon burning the image to your card:
  • 1. Resize the "rootfs" partition to fit your SD card. This is best done on another Linux system using the GParted utility.
    2. Set your time zone using "sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata", or press the Up arrow in the LXTerminal window on first boot.
    3. Set your language using Preferences -> Language Support.
Improvements and upgrades:
  • 1. To overclock to 1.92GHz, type "sudo gedit /etc/rc.local" in Terminal and remove the "#" from the beginning of the line that starts with "echo 1920000".
    2. Firefox has the IcedTea7 plugin installed for Java browser applets. Both Chromium and Firefox have the Adblock Plus add-on. The default browser is Firefox running Firebug.
    3. All upgrades and updates have been run using aptitude, apt-get and synaptic.
    4. All orphaned and obsolete packages have been purged, including the original kernel.
    5. Lots of quality-of-life tweaks, such as setting folder preferences to List View, removing the Battery icon from the Status bar, setting the Chromium and Firefox preferences to their highest privacy settings, and installing wallpapers (/usr/share/wallpapers).

    2. Installed Thunar file manager which supports drag-n-drop, Samba shares, and Git/Subversion right-click commands

    4. Added Terminal to Application Launch Bar and replaced PCManFM with Thunar

Want to upgrade your existing Code Monkey image?
PCManFM does not support network shares, drag-n-drop or Subversion, and replacing it with Thunar restores those functions. More here under "LXDE/XFCE hybrid": http://askubuntu.com/questions/73017/th ... -11-10-how.

1. Install the new packages:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install vino vinagre gnome-system-tools ubuntu-studio-icon-theme thunar thunar-media-tags-plugin thunar-archive-plugin thunar-vcs-plugin file-roller xfdesktop4 xfce-terminal
2. Right-click the bottom Panel and select "Panel Settings", then change the default file manager to "thunar %s" from "pcmanfm %s".

3. Right-click the Application Launcher and select "Application Launcher Settings", then add Terminal Emulator and File Manager to the Launcher after removing PCManFM.

4. Edit the file "~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart" and add an exclamation point "!" to the beginning of the line that starts with "@pcmanfm".

5. Add a file called "xfdesktop.desktop" to the directory "~/.config/autostart" with the following contents and reboot:

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Exec=xfdesktop
Icon=help-contents
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Categories=Utility;X-XFCE;X-Xfce-Toplevel;
Name=XFCE Desktop Manager
Comment=XFCE Desktop Manager
6. Using the Settings -> Customize Look and Feel application, change the icon theme to Ubuntu Studio.

7. Using Synaptic Package Manager, uninstall the Mono .NET development packages and all of their dependencies by searching for "mono" in the "Installed" section.
