LXDE running on Android phones

LXDE has been ported to Googles Android by ghostwalker of androidfanatic.com. Thank you very much! We are pretty excited about running X-Windows and more specifically the LXDE Desktop GUI on mobile phones like theĀ  G-1.

While IceWM, performance-wise runs the fastest – LXDE is also pretty good, and just plain ‘prettier! (http://www.androidfanatic.com/cms/com…)

LXDE on ARM architectures: Sharp Zaurus

Zubuntu with LXDEThe LXDE project is pushing its way onto the market for mobile devices and ARM architectures. LXDE is now available for Sharp Zaurus in a specialized Ubuntu Linux distribution (Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron) called “Zubuntu”. Zubuntu is developed by hacker Omegamoon and can be booted (mostly) from flash memory.

The Zubuntu project was inspired by Nokia’s Handheld Mojo project, which is porting Ubuntu to the ARM architecture. In creating his root filesystem for the Sharp Zaurus, Omegamoon drew pre-built binaries from the ARMv5EL (ARM9) branch of Mojo Project’s Frisky Firedrake tree.
