Ubuntu 13.10 Dream Machine for ODROID-U2 (20140101)

Unread postby robroy » Tue May 21, 2013 11:51 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 a netbook/desktop computer.

Download the image here:
13.10 Saucy Salamander: http://oph.mdrjr.net/robroyhall/images/ubuntu/u2/Ubuntu-13.10_DreamMachine-U2-HDMI.20140101.img.xz
13.04 Raring Ringtail: http://oph.mdrjr.net/robroyhall/images/ubuntu/u2/Ubuntu-13.04_DreamMachine-U2-HDMI.20140101.img.xz

European mirror by @traxo:

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

Username: odroid
Password: odroid

Username: root
Password: odroid

Applications: Firefox, Chromium, Xine, XBMC, Gimp, Transmission, Filezilla and Oracle JDK 8.

X11 environments: Lubuntu (LXDE), Kubuntu (KDE), Razor, Blackbox, Openbox, Matchbox and Xubuntu (XFCE).

You may switch environments using the dropdown on the login screen after logging out of KDE Plasma Workspace. For best XBMC performance, use any desktop environment except for KDE.

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 System Settings -> Time & Date.
    3. Set your language using System Settings -> Language Settings.
    4. Set your username and password using System Settings -> User Accounts.
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, and uses the built-in HTML5 player which is not compatible with Flash. Chromium has the Pepper Flash plugin installed for viewing Flash videos. Both Chromium and Firefox have the Adblock Plus add-on. The default browser is Firefox.
    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).
Features in this release:
Notes:
    XBMC performs best when the resolution is set to 720p, which is done by typing "sudo cp /media/boot/boot-720.scr /media/boot/boot.scr" in the Terminal window before rebooting.

    Xubuntu window compositing is turned off by default for an optimized XBMC experience. To restore compositing, select "System Settings -> Window Manager Tweaks" from the Applications menu. With compositing on, you may adjust window transparency by holding down the ALT key and scrolling the mouse wheel while hovering over the window's title bar.

    Vino VNC server may be started via SSH by typing "vino" after enabling Desktop Sharing using "vino-preferences".

    To boot directly to the most recently used desktop environment, type "sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults --autologin odroid" in Terminal, which bypasses the login screen.

    The default KDE Plasma Workspace is hardware accelerated, which can be extended to any other desktop environment by enabling the "Kwin GLES Hardware-Accelerated Desktop Manager" task in the Startup settings of the environment. Please note that Kwin GLES affects XBMC speed, so only KDE Plasma Workspace has Kwin GLES enabled by default.

    Optional USB and TFTP boot support is available with the updated bootloader by @suriyan (more here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2722)

    More Odroid software by @meveric is available here: http://oph.mdrjr.net/meveric/repository

Thank you so much :D

Unfortunately, the basic size for 13.04 is 8.6GB even when you install it from the Live Linux DVD/USB installer, unless you really strip it down to just XFCE like Hard Kernel did.

However, you can modify the image yourself and pare it down to fit your 8GB eMMC:

1. Burn it to a 16GB SD card.
2. Booting from the SD, remove all the desktop environments that you don't want using Synaptic Package Manager (ex. edubuntu-desktop, kde-desktop, gnome).
3. Remove any appications that you don't use. LibreOffice probably takes up a lot of room, so I would start with that, since it's essentially been made obsolete by Google Drive.

If you really want a lightweight image, I have an upcoming release called Whisper that will be re-forked from the original 13.04 XFCE image, with the goal of fitting onto an 8GB card with just the LXDE desktop environment.

oh woow,i think Code Monkey will fit right for me and my 8gb Emmc!:D
On my host i use kubuntu 13.04 in dual-boot with Mint 14 Cynnamon,but on the U2 i really prefer something light,and XFCE is the perfect deal!i'll continue using hardKernel's version until Cod Monkey will be out! :)

I am planning three final releases of my Ubuntu series while waiting for ChromeOS to drop 8-)

1. A lightweight 13.04 image called Code Monkey, made for software hobbyists like myself, to include a range of application and web development tools like NetBeans, Eclipse, Oracle JDK 8, Ruby, ROS Groovy, Scratch and more.
2. A companion image to Code Monkey called Quiet Giant, offering popular server software like Apache, MySQL, nginx, Thin, Spigot and Bubble.
3. An audio production bundle called Smooth Groove, aimed at home musicians, to include recording, effects, processing, editing and mixing software.

Once it's ready, you will be able to install the official kernel 3.8 into any of my Ubuntu images.

XBMC 11 is available from the Ubuntu software center, and XBMC 12 is still in development for the Odroid. Android version had already been finished and works well.

Hmm, this distribution seems to have a few problems:

1) I get graphical corruption in the terminal windows (swiping the mouse over seems to fix it) - should i get newer drivers?

2) vi, and several other command line apps are corrupted (cannot execute binary file) - are they from another linux build?

3) the dpkg info file for calibre is broken, so apt-getting anything that requires it fails.

1. The drivers are from Hard Kernel, you will get a more informed answer if you start a new thread and direct your question to them.

The official 13.04 release doesnt include Ubuntu because of some issues with the Mali drivers, and I think the font noise is only noticeable in the Ubuntu environment. The xorg.conf file may need some adjustment. Please post back with more information if you find a fix :)

2 and 3 are fixed by typing this into Terminal:
Code: Select all
sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/calibre-bin.*
sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/calibre.list

I ran out of disk space during one of the package installs which corrupted the calibre installation files. Removing them and reinstalling calibre restores the functionality of vi, xine and a lot of other applications. This will be fixed in the next release of Dream Machine.

Thank you!! I was very excited to get the Ubuntu desktop environment working, its my favorite :)

I would like to produce a few more 13.04 images, but I am currently out of SD cards for development use. You can use the link in my signature to help me purchase some new cards to store Code Monkey, Quiet Giant and Smooth Groove. I am also planning an ultrafast CM image called Big Tiny :)

This image is great but I have problem with X because is freeze many time (in an hour I have 4 freeze) and is necessary to restart lightdm as user root (not with sudo).
If you have time look at this distribution http://voyager.legtux.org/ in my opinion is a great xubuntu distribution.
Maybe you ca take the conky script, theme and wallpaper,etc from this distribution.

LE> In Xubuntu session I see is not this problem.

It's sometimes due to a slow microsd card.

and is necessary to restart lightdm as user root (not sudo)

lightdm is already running, and doesn't have an option to restart. For fun, try "lightdm --test-mode" as the error message suggests :)

To switch Desktop Managers, type:
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm

select "GDM", and reboot. This may work better for you. If not, repeat the command, select "lightdm" and reboot.

If you have time look at this distribution http://voyager.legtux.org/ in my opinion is a great xubuntu distribution.
Maybe you ca take the conky script, theme and wallpaper,etc from this distribution.

Please post the assets so everyone can see :)

LE> In Xubuntu session I see is not this problem.

If Xubuntu works better for you, just uninstall the other environments.

After you run the calibre fix mentioned in the original post, you are free to run any upgrade command you wish.

It's pinned because Ubuntu wants to overwrite my custom ffmpeg build during any upgrade. If you accidentally upgrade it, you can download the .deb file in the thread linked below.

From the notes on the original post:
Optimized ffmpeg which is used by Xine (more here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1281&p=8109)

Things to try:
Run "gnome-panel" in Terminal after remoting in
Switch from Unity to another desktop environment like Xubuntu

You will have to do a trick, which is to add "lxterm" as a Startup Application. This is assuming you are using the default Unity desktop environment:

1. Click on the Dash Home widget (topmost icon in the Unity bar), type "Startup" and select "Startup Applications"
2. Add "lxterm" as a new startup application.
3. Try your remote session again, this time a terminal window should pop up for you upon login.

There are many other methods to add a script, but this is the most straightforward.

Did you try Xubuntu? It's less graphically intensive than Unity.

Thanks again robroy, the terminal startup and "gnome-panel" worked for me to get remote desktop working.

I tried to switch desktop environments and verified that xubuntu is installed but when I login it is not offered on the login screen.

Did you press the circle next to the Username on the login screen? It has a little symbol inside it that looks like an animal footprint.

I would like to install Opencv in this odroid-u2 ubuntu. So I followed this tutorial for Ubuntu 12.04 (x86 or x64).
I had followed this tutorial for odroid-x and it worked. I have installed the all dependences of opencv.
The opencv need to libqt4-dev so I removed mali, installed libqt4-dev and reinstall mali.
The mali works because the glmark2-es works.
I configured the opencv so:
cmake -D WITH_TBB=OFF -D BUILD_NEW_PYTHON_SUPPORT=ON -D WITH_V4L=ON -D INSTALL_C_EXAMPLES=ON -D INSTALL_PYTHON_EXAMPLES=ON -D BUILD_EXAMPLES=ON -D WITH_QT=ON -D WITH_OPENGL=ON ..

The TBB doesn't work here and I actived QT because installed the dependeces.
The configuration indicates that QT should work.

Code: Select all
cmake -D WITH_TBB=OFF -D BUILD_NEW_PYTHON_SUPPORT=ON -D WITH_V4L=ON -D INSTALL_C_EXAMPLES=ON -D INSTALL_PYTHON_EXAMPLES=ON -D BUILD_EXAMPLES=ON -D WITH_QT=ON -D WITH_OPENGL=ON ..

How can I solve this conflict?
I installed well opencv in odroid-x ubuntu 12.04 but I want to use the odroid-u2 and mali...
I don't know if this kind of error is normal because GLdouble is declarated two times...

That is a good question! However, I don't have any experience with OpenCV, but want to learn more about it.

You will probably get an HK dev to answer your question very well if you create a new thread.

I have an upcoming image called Code Monkey that will include OpenCV, so I'll keep an eye on your new post and include any recommendations made there in my build.

And I gave up, went with the odroid version. I'll have to consider switching. I landed here again searching for chromeOS for odroid. You mention it in the OP. I was considering getting my feet wet with it again(its been about two years since I last ). I'll be keeping an eye out for it, very exciting!

Hello Rob

after running some kde programs in gnome it appears there are some library problems like:

kwin_gles: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libkactivities.so.6: invalid ELF header

peace.

Ok! This version is a pre-release.. the official version will be published next week, with Kernel 3.8 included.

I will re-install KDE and KWin and hopefully it will resolve the invalid dependencies.

Thank you for testing!

Hi Rob. Great work on the custom Ubuntu 13.04.

One thing that seems to be missing, though I don't understand why, is /sys/devices/platform/tmu/temperature

I do see:
root@odroid:~# zcat /proc/config.gz | grep -i tmu
CONFIG_EXYNOS_DEV_TMU=y
root@odroid:~# cat /boot/config-3.0.75-robroyhall-odroidu2 | grep -i tmu
CONFIG_EXYNOS_DEV_TMU=y

From the fan control thread you mentioned in the OP ( viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1247 ) I figured out how to reduce my fan speed so it's not so noisy, but it would be great to be able to use the odroidu2-fan-service for automatic control. Can you confirm this works with your next release with the 3.8 kernel?

Cheers!

I dont have a fan to test. I just followed @mdrjrs installation instructions :)

@mdrjr can provide more information about the fan service than me. There is a separate thread for it, he may respond to you more quickly there.

Copy the boot-hdmi720.scr to boot.scr in the BOOT partition (/media/boot) and reboot.

Even with this option set to "y", the /tmu directory is still missing on my u2 and the fan service abends.

Thanks a lot !
It seems to be a very smooth version. I had some problems with the Xorg server crashing when I was looking at a DocX file with LibreOffice though.
Is this a known problem ?

Thank you!

I didnt include LibreOffice because I use Google Drive, and LibreOffice takes up a lot of disk space.

Please post any information about the XServer crash in a new thread, including any relevant Xorg.0.log entries, and which environment you're using.

Re: Ubuntu 13.04 Dream Machine for ODROID-U2 (20130615)

This release is working well for me but I have the same problem occurring with a couple of programs.
When I start up ddd (graphical front end on gdb), after 5 seconds or so the x-server crashes and the login screen appears.

This also happens at times if I edit a file with nedit and press [alt]-z which execs make.

Any thoughts?

You'll have to inspect your /var/log/kern.log and /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see what messages appeared right before the crash.
