Is there a method to run a fully functional Ubuntu system on the Galaxy Nexus? The two methods I know of are Ubuntu Touch Preview, and Ubuntu on top of Android via VNC, but there are problems with both if you want to use it like an ultraportable laptop. Ubuntu Touch Preview lacks standard desktop features. Ubuntu on Android via VNC is unresponsive enough to be impractical for daily use.
My requirements are:
- full desktop UI with browser, terminal, etc
- hdmi out support
- bluetooth support for keyboard/mouse
- responsive enough to use
On the Ubuntu for phones site it advertises the desktop view feature: "The phone becomes a full PC and thin client when docked.". And there's the demo by Canonical of something similar running under Ubuntu for Android. I realize they're different systems, but the end effect in both is to have a full Ubuntu system running on the phone. Unfortunately I haven't figured out how to replicate this, and to my knowledge Canonical hasn't released anything like it publicly.
