Ubuntu Netbook Remix quick installation in EeePC platform

If you have tried to install Netbook remix in your EeePC , you probably know that after the installation of packages, it take few more steps to adjust gnome environment to fit for the UME launcher. In case that you need an extra account , or reinstall the system , you have to do it again.

In order to simplify the process, I have made a package which did the configuration , so that you don't need to set gnome for netbook remix environment:

Source code :

Installation (include netbook remix):

Add the lines below into source list:

deb hardy main
deb-src hardy main
deb hardy main
deb-src hardy main


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install go-home-applet human-netbook-theme maximus ume-launcher window-picker-applet eeepc-netbook-remix-config

Newly created account would use netbook remix environment automatically. For existing account , it take one more step to complete the installation . (Warning! It will delete gnome's bottom panel and remove all of the applet in your top panel)

Type the following commands in your terminal:

gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel
gconftool --recursive-unset /desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager

Then restart gnome. Netbook remix will be running on your machine.
