I discovered a real nice combination. Openbox Mars theme and LXAppearance shearwater. I find the black and red combination very attractive.

A screenshot from the laptop (in my sig). The wallpaper is called Debian Mist.

I thought it was Gnome, until I saw the KDE symbol in the lower left corner. :oops:

What is a cover?
Something you put the tablet in to protect it? (The answer will probably be yes, but i am not too sure).

Edit: I can't say i get more smart by getting older. Entering "cover for tablet" in a searchengine solved the problem. Oh my.

Would you please be so kind and tell us a bit
1. how the thingy runs with Debian
2. how complicated it was to get Debian working on it
3. how responsive it is for typing on the screen, not keyboard (similarly fluent as an iPad)?

This would be a great purchase for me. My laptop is too clunky
to carry around as a simple reader at all times and I'm reluctant
to pay a lot of money for something I only might be using for
reading anyway.

"Kind?" Did you say "kind?" ... You must not know my reputation around here.

Basically, you use a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) app on the Android tablet to login to an LXDE session.

I posted the details in my HowTo, in the discussion and on my own webpage.

If you already have a good knowledge of Debian, installation will run like butter on a hot summer day.

Typing on the screen is responsive. But for me, I just find it easier to type when I can feel real keys beneath my fingertips.

In this particular case, I bought a USB keyboard for the tablet because the tablet is so cheap that it does not have Bluetooth. And I can honestly say that I'm very happy with the result. In my past experiences with Bluetooth keyboards, I noticed a lag between the time I typed and the time the characters would appear on screen (if they did at all). Both of those issues vanished with the USB keyboard.

The big problem with using a physical keyboard however is that it separates you (in space) from the touch-screen interface. So instead of reaching to the side for the mouse, you have to awkwardly reach over the keyboard with your whole arm.

I personally prefer to use a phone with a slide-out keyboard. It gets me up close and personal with the phone, it provides the physical keyboard that my fingertips crave and -- because you do not have to use the screen to type -- you get more screen real estate for your work.

If I could justify the time, money and effort, I would buy a Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G, install CyanogenMod on the device and then install Debian. As it currently stands however, I just run Debian out of a stock version of its cousin, the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II.

I love my phone. I cannot say the same thing about my tablet.

Just crossed my mind ... When you're typing in LXDE (or any other X environment) on an Android phone/tablet, you can choose between the Android keyboard or matchbox-keyboard.
