    An Ubuntu user?! I was feeling so lonely...

    let me get this straight, you want to install Ubuntu on the iPad2? If that's the case it is near impossible I'm afraid...

    But! If you want an alternative, buy an iPad 1 and jailbreak it. You can run a mobile terminal and do everything that you are used to doing on Linux! SSH, file transfer, EVERYTHING!

    But...you will need to get your hands Windows, because you need to do the initial installation ( and updates ) from iTunes I'm afraid... I personally use my brothers laptop for that while he is sleeping! :P


    Here is a screenshot of my iPad to get your mouth watering!



    If you need help setting up, let me know and I'll help you out!

    I need an Ubuntu buddy in the forums!

    That's me accessing my laptop on mobile terminal. I'm not doing something really crazy, I have connected to my laptop via SSH, I've navigated to desktop, and basically displayed it.

    It's just that using UNIX commands on an iPad is just...cool!

    Yo! Ubuntu user here! Ok ok. The lappy is a dual boot with GRUB since I still have exactly 3 programs that only work with Windows 7. But almost always using the Linux OS.

    Going out on a limb here and guessing the OP meant installing iTunes on Ubuntu and syncing the device. Or possibly mounting it as an external storage device? Like will Ubuntu install drivers with plug and play ease or are to doing lots of config work to support iPad?

    I don't see how anyone is going to run Ubuntu on iPad2 without heavy hacking. If you want a linux based tablet just go Android. There's stock support for terminal emulators and SSHing to your linux box. Once you root you are all su all the time and you can install custom kernals. But honestly I'm guessing them meant how iOS and Ubuntu play together rather than installing a Ubuntu instance on iPad.

    That said....no idea. iPad is hooked up only to hubby's Windows 7 laptop. I can fire up mine and take a look for you though when I get home.

    More Ubuntu people! Starting to love this forum!

    Yea that's the problem with iPads, they don't like Linux distros...

    Like I said, you'll need to find a Windows or Mac to set up an iPad 2 if you really have you heart set on one.

    Androids on the other hand love our little GRUBY GNU-ey boxes!
