The first link in my post above (post #8) shows an alternate method when you are in a file manager. Click on Documents, File, etc..

I've never use it but you might take a look at it and give it a try, that is if you haven't already.

That's usually what you see when a terminal open. Your user name and the localhost, usually with this sign ($) after localhost.

I'm often browsing the web with my ZG5. I stopped using Linpus when an expected kernel update did not come through fast enough. I used the specific Ubuntu Netbook Remix (9.04 if I'm not mistaken) and when they stopped dedicated UNR versions, switched to Lubuntu 10.04. It was behaving funny (can't remember exactly what) so wiped that off within a few weeks and I'm now using Crunchbang Statler on it (for the last two years, I think).

I only use it for web surfing and skype (although the latter is a while ago). It sometimes freezes for little while while typing messages on forums (like this one). I have not managed to get SD cards working (some say it is possible).
