    Big day fellas. We just released our official distribution: UDOOubuntu! It’s an incredibly fast and performant lubuntu 12.04 LTS armHF distro with full graphic acceleration and Arduino IDE with no serial and float issue.

    We decided to release UDOObuntu in Beta version to allow you guys to test and improve it.

    Dual and Quad images: http://www.udoo.org/downloads/#tab1
    File System: http://www.udoo.org/downloads/#tab2

    Update: Since UdooBuntu is still in Beta phase, we are looking forward to receive your feedback and suggestions: we will publish the final release as soon as possible, following your suggestions. Let us know which utilities you would like to find as well, for example: Pure Data, Cloud9 Web IDE, Jack Server, Node.js, Processing... We will integrate the most requested ones, since we want to include the most demanded tools while keeping the distro lightweight.
    A nice feature of UdooBuntu is the integrated Remote Desktop VNC Server. To connect via remote desktop, simply download Real VNC Player ( http://www.realvnc.com/download/ ) and connect to UDOO's IP followed by :5901 . The default password is "ubuntu".

    Enjoy

    Hi,
    This image is runs very smooth thus far. Great Job!! My only complaint at this time is that wireless is not working. The wlan0 interface is not present automatically and even when I attempt to add the interface name to the /etc/network/interface, still no joy. No initialization of the interface in dmesg either. Can someone confirm that the quad image has wireless capabilities. Thanks

    First of all FAST! Great job!
    Then a couple of things...
    -LVDS 15.6 touch working well but the calibration touchscreen utility does not work. It opens a frozen LXTerminal with a frozen cursor. No interactions allowed. Can someone confirm?
    -Lubuntu Software Center does not open either. Not a big deal since there is Synaptic too..
    -Is there an on-screen keyboard I can use with this distribution?
    Thanks
    Walt!

    Thanks for your feedbacks guys,

    we've checked wifi and lvds calibration, everything seems to work well here. We'll make other test however.

    we'll try an onboard keyboard, for the moment we haven't tested it yet. Indeed it's very usefull with an ldvs monitor :D

    We need some help to choose the programs and the developer tools you would like to pre install in the final version of UDOObuntu official distro.

    e.g: CodeBlocks, PureData, Cloud9 Web IDE, Nodejs, Bluefish etc.

    Which of those IDE are you using or you used in the last Ubuntu 12.04 armel?

    Messed a little bit around with the image and was mainly impressed by the boot time! Wifi works better now compared to linaro, however, synaptic still has problems with failed hashes occasionally.

    My main use for the Udoo is as media player. Unfortunately I couldn't get any player (mplayer, vlc, totem) to work.

    What kernel version does this use? Also, what's the situation on drivers? One of my main complaints about UDOO is how every disk image only has roughly 30 drivers, whereas other platforms like the odroid offers over 900.

    How do you change system settings such as timezone?
    How do you manage bluetooth connections?
    Beta seems a little short of some utilities, or is it me?

    We use the same kernel branch as before, we added MIDI support and some DVB-T drivers. In stable release we'll add more drivers, I agree we're lacking on that. Furthermore we're developing an easy to use system configurator, please report what difficulties you have so we can implement easy setup for this functions.
    For those who are reporting, thanks for the feedbacks!

    Hi, first of all congrats!!
    Good work!
    My brief report: I had problems with display settings. It set always 19200x1080 but I solved modifying /etc/x11/xorg.conf and adding
    Code:
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    under section "screen".
    Now I can select the mode from a combobox in Monitor Settings.
    Second, I can't change the default keyboard map set to US. I used
    Code:
    setxkbmap it
    
    from command line.
    And last no audio from hdmi. My udoo is connected to an LG Smart TV. Using
    Code:
    alsamixer 
    I noticed that the gui doesn't report "Master" column for imx-hdmi audio card.
    Regards

    Speed increase is great. I have got various things working with Processing and serial devices, but more drivers would be really good.

    I would like the C210x serial driver included so I could use the RPLidar http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/RPLIDA ... -1823.html with an udoo.

    Thanks for this. It works real fast off my SSD.

    I updated a couple of things with Synaptic (one was the Groovy java virtual machine language), now the Arduino
    IDE has stopped working - I launch it and nothing happens.

    I am impressed with the speed, really great!
    I would like to see Pure Data, Jack Server, Node.js and Processing included in the final version. Especially Pure Data! Although I was able to compile and run pd-extended on UDOObuntu, following the instructions from the forum(compile-pure-data-extended-udoo-t478.html). But I did not test any audio stuff just jet.

    I would love to see an upcoming version with the newer kernel, 3.10.17.
