    has anyone tried ubuntu with the lapdock? I can only get the ubuntu cursor to move if I hold the left mouse button down (USB mouse, assume trackball would be the same) and drag it. the cursor then follows *very* slowly...

    yeah it did exactly the same for me... but it stands to reason that it would be veeerryyyy slow... think about how stacked up it is... the layers

    1) android OS
    2) linux
    3) vnc into linux
    4) webtop
    5) I/O device

    I can understand it being slow, but I'm not sure why the cursor in the ubuntu window doesn't follow the mouse without my having to hold the left button down. it's kind of like the focus isn't correctly being given to the ubuntu window...

    Its a wow factor thing. Really only good if you are a techie so you can show your techie friends.

    It only does WiFi and it isn't a phone anymore.

    Basically like installing actual Windows OS on a Windows Phone.

    Pretty cool. Works pretty well, but not as smooth as regular Webtop on my lapdock 100.
