more flipflops before finally opting for Lubuntu

I removed the Linux install from the Toshiba AC100 and restored Android in order to watch videos with hardware graphics acceleration - without acceleration, HD videos were not watchable. The saved Android backup on DVD did not work! But this post (if that page is blocked, archived version is here) saved the day, with links to working saved partitions from this location. The actual restore really takes only 5 minutes.

Installing Lubuntu once again (12.10, from the instructions here) took around half an hour after the flashing, since the installer needs to run from the tarball in the USB mem key and set up all the files onto the install partition. And why did I go back to Lubuntu? Because V wanted to buy the machine to use as a portable work-horse, and wanted to use OpenOffice etc.
