I use Debian on my Freerunner. Following is a description of my setup, and of how well (or not) things are working with that setup.

Main points

  • Debian installed (again) on 10th December (2009, following major filesystem corruption of my previous Debian install).
  • matchbox window manager and keyboard. I'm kind of missing the E17 keyboard, but not as much as I expected to. The matchbox keyboard seems more usable than you'd think, given its size.
  • trayer, openmoko-panel-plugin and auxlaunch. Here's my .xsession:
#!/bin/sh
trayer --edge top --height 60 &
openmoko-panel-plugin &
zhone &
rm -f .auxlaunchpid
auxlaunch -dms &
exec matchbox-window-manager -use_titlebar no -use_cursor no
  • Some screenshots to show how it looks... I think the plainness of the top panel goes well with the sharp angles of Gtk+ apps.
