I'm sure lot of people are waiting for a good Media center. Maybe a quick booting linux distro or a libxenon based app.

What about a web browser? May be a bit too complicated, but it sure would be cool.

A web browser is already in Ubuntu, soo.... ^^
I thought about something like a (the!) N64 emulator, but that`s just brainstorming, i really appreciate your work and don`t want to hound anyone ! ;)

I have seen another idea on the PSP (for instance PSPdisp 0.6) which could make using Ubuntu via controller more comfortable. Its a way to input letters and numbers instead of using a unhandy keyboard.

so here we go:

Just by using the two thumbsticks one can choose any letter.
I the example below the left stick is pushed and hold to the up-left corner, seen by the dark red border. To choose one letter of those fours one use the right stick. I this case it is pushed to the left, so the "a" is picked, seen by the pink filling. To execute the choice one could confirm by pressing LB or so.
Another example: To choose the "!" one first trigger the right stick to the array up-left (since it is on the right side, up-left) an choose out of them the "!" by using the left stick (the free one) and pressing it to the right.

Simple sketch: Image

It is a little bit confusing in the beginning but with the time one could write quite fast, without the need to attach the PCs keyboard or buy a new one. The biggest quest in this will be (in my very limited mind...) a proper integration into Linux and the way how to let the interface pop up (always running process? ). Goals would be typing in brews (i.e. names and chat ) which are intended to be used with the controller instead of a keyboard.
I am even to incapable to try that out, but what do you think about that?

PS: thanks for reading. Posted it on 360hacks.de a while ago too


Edit: the Keyboard i am talking about is called "danzeff keyboard" and coded by Danzel. Might be open and free scource. I`ll figure that out and take a lock at the code

A Great BOOSTER imo would be a special linux distro that is controllable by the normal controller only. Its has a nice interface, best for viewing from the sofa <!-- s;) -->;)<!-- s;) --> and has some basic apps available (Webbrowser, Media Player, IRC, IM, basic games?)
This as a live distro, which may saves content on the 360 HDD in a special file so that the filesystem is untouched and you dont have to switch HDDs.

here-here controlling mouse with the joystick + an on screen keyboard pre-installed would be prime, or if we could support the chatpad?

about saving content, usb is available, idk if we've touched fatx support yet.

Hello everybody,

Really nice Libxenon finally gets its own Homepage.  <!-- s:) -->:)<!-- s:) -->

On Topic:
I would like to see a Linux Version of the most common used XBOX360 PC-Toolz like:
-Le fluffie App
-Quickboot
-Yarisswap
-Modio

Codeword: WINE?
(Perhaps a Noob-fiendly written Tut would do the Job)

Purpose:
So people can access, edit and mod they Gamertag/Profile directly on they JTAG-Box without transfering everything to the Desktop-PC.

(Soory for my bad english, I'm German)

Sorry but Wine isn't an option because Wine doesn't emulate x86 commands.
To be more accurate, Wine is a compatability layer that translates windows commands to linux ones.

Ok, thanks for this info.

besides this....
I belive the reason why not every Jtag owner (out there) starts messing with Linux is the lack of USB support during the installation process.
If there were a Linux version wich i could install on an external HDD (and boot with Xellous) i would have already done it, just like many others i think.
This would drive many more People to the Forums even without 2D/3D Acceleration and Sound support.

Just my 2 Cents.

(I know my english is bad, really bad)  ;)

What about trying to use Kinect for mouse cursor support in Linux, or virtual keyboard (minority report style), imho that would be a huge boost!

I guess the best booster for Linux would be a stable version with sound that runs from nand/HDD along standard dash first.
For libxenon it would be first or updated releases, i hope the n64 emu will see a release soon, i would also love to see a updated SNES emu, since the XDK one is "crap", lacks support for many features and i doubt it will ever get updated.

What about adding a little menu to Xell-Reloaded in which you can select Option 1-3...
basically the Option tells Xell-Reloaded in which folder it should look for an *.ELF File..

Option [1] "usb:\01\"
Option [2] "usb:\02\"
Option [3] "usb:\03\" 

...so we can store/try more *.ELF file without changing CD/DVDs every time...

Disregard what I wrote before, just found that it already exists XD

A simpler installation process and the ability to install on the same hard drive, along side the FATX partitions would be amazing.

Anyway, keep up the great work guys, thanks again!
