Thanks to chesterx for the Dropbox upload, my copy just finished downloading - writing to micro SD now! Just hoping that the 8GB card will be enough..

Edit: Actually it seems all 4 sides are falling off the screen.


This is now solved in our case, thanks to Patterson55: https://www.miniand.com/forums/forums/1/topics/109

I'm pretty sure that I've seen virtual keyboards for LINUX, however, I suspect(?????) they are not installed by default in our case, so you'll need a real keyboard for starters.

We haven't used ourselves, but BlueTooth should work with Lubuntu, but not yet Android.

tried bluetooth for rii mini keyboard, but throws internal server error. I'm using 512 MB image. The device recognizes the bluetooth dongle, but while pairing, the dialogbox goes off and pops up internal server error.

I think we need to move away from this, but, at one point it was the same password. (FWIW, It does not seem to be accepted on my system.)
