    i tried your instructions.. the name you have for the package did not come up.

    also is your last step even a valid command?

    what version of linux are you using? i have only tried these instructions in Ubuntu 8.04. i did try it in 8.10 and that package did not show up. it seems that particular one has not been released for 8.10 or at least is not in the repositories. as for the last command, it is valid i copied those lines verbatim as i did them during the install. the key thing to know i guess is that those are not single quotes surrounding
    which desktop-launcher

    the correct symbol is found on the same key as the Tilda ( ~ ) just don't hit shift (sorry i don't know the correct name for that symbol).

    im no linux super user or anything but from what i can tell that is giving a relative path to that particular script.

    sorry if that is a bit confusing, but that is all i got.

    What the "which xxx" command does is it shows you the full path to a given command that Linux has found by looking in certain pre-configured locations.

    A simple example to test this would be the command "ping". typing "ping 192.168.1.1" will work from any folder without entering the fully qualified path to the ping executable.

    If you type "which ping" it will show you the path that ping is stored in. Depending on the distro, this could be in a number of different locations.

    The backquote symbol allows you to embed the output from certain commands in the middle of a different command from a shell (unlike pipe '|' which lets you string commands together one after the other). So, when I write instructions I would use the `which xxx` instead of the path that file occupies on my system so that if there is any variation in the location of particular files, the instructions will still work on other systems.

    I hope that helps.

    I have the same problem. Have you solved this ploblem?

    hey i actually gave up on the clutter ui. for now i just went back to OS X ( i was having issues with linux shutting down properly when turning off my car). I have been tinkering with the Ubuntu moblin remix which looks pretty cool. i love that netbooks are taking off because us carpc users are going to really benefit from new UI designs

    Ubuntu Mobile Has since died (I beleive the last version was back in intrepid)

    In juanty now, I run NBR, net book remix. It has an entirely different launcher, and everything. It is almost touch screen freindly, just get the drivers out of the package mangr. edit the fdi file and it will be perfect for you.

    yeah i have used it, and I found it only ok. I much prefer the new moblin UI for touchscreen. I think it will offer a much better experience than NBR.
