LXDE can do it! LXDE on Android smartphone!

August 24th, 2009 by

Yes i did it. I made LXDE running on my new Android smartphoe, the latest HTC masterpiece, the HTC HERO. Here some shots:

That’s great! But there is a main problem here, I’m not running openSUSE with X11:lxde packages, but debian with their stuff. I cannot use my geeko because the phone is an ARM and our openSUSE@ARM looks to still be in an early development stage. This post wants to be a ping to or openSUSE@ARM project and of course some marketing to this great and light Desktop Enviroment. For people interested in, here some hardware infos:

    How well does OpenSuse support LXDE? Is it in its early stages of adoption?

    everything is going fine, i think i will be able to release a stable iso very soon

  3. Great work! Hope to see it run on OpenSuse ARM soon as well. Keep up the good work.
