Hello,

is it possible to install a desktop enviroment, like lxde on the calc.
I is possible to install lxde, but when I tried it there were problems with input. I think it was traced down to a config option not being set when compiling the kernel. I might work with the new kernel.

@Ivoah Alright, so, how about this: instead of debootstrapping directly to the USB, I debootstrap to an image file, the dd the image file to the USB. Or am I still missing something?

Sounds like your flashdrive is borked, try reformatting it as ext4.

Oh my. Well, if that's the case, I suppose it's a good thing I have several other USB drives, then! I'll report back as soon as I can.

Sometimes the flash drive draws too much power. If you have a powered hub with a mini-USB port, you can use the link cable that comes with the calc to avoid any problems, and also plug in a real keyboard.

The issue is cropping up before he even get's to the Nspire step, that's not it (yet).

Ah okay, nevermind then.
I'd recommend using a non-virtual linux box to work with, if you can figure out a way to do that, or maybe a linux with a flash drive root (you can do that with debootstrap too!). Virtualbox usually works, but I've seen weirdnesses with USB forwarding which might be causing problems.

I hear that the Insider builds of Windows 10 has a full Linux userland? Do you think that would work?

Probably not, that feature is still very much in beta, with many bugs. I highly doubt qemu would work with it. If you have a raspberry pi though, that would work best, as you can skip the qemu and binfmt steps.

Oh my... Unfortunately, I do not own a Raspberry Pi. Would this guide work with Ubuntu? I am asking as Ubuntu seems to support my WiFi cards. Or does debootstrap rely on Debian?
Also, I think I'll look into getting a Raspberry Pi, as it certainly would make doing this whole thing easier, if I were to do it again (I have a tendency to accidentally format USB drives without checking what's on them).

Yep, Ubuntu should work just fine, but you'll need the emu and binfmt steps, since your computer has a different processor than the Nspire. Also, I would highly recommend getting a Raspberry Pi, they're fun to mess around with. For instance, I just made this the other day: https://twitter.com/NoahRosamilia/status/723688146320392192

Would've been nice to know that Ubuntu worked all the while ago . I will definitely look into buying a Raspberry Pi. Which one do you recommend?

Hands down would recommend a Pi 3, as they are the fastest, and still the same price as the older ones.

Thanks. Time to save money for another small computing device! Because one can never have enough.

EDIT: Alright, I tried once more to set up linux on another USB drive using an Ubuntu installation, but it did not work. I suppose I should wait until I own a Raspberry Pi.

I just remembered that there is an issue in my tutorial. For some reason WordPress converts double dashes (--) into single long dashes (–), which messes up some of the commands. Wherever you see a long dash, replace it with two normal dashes.
