YaWOS, as an alternative to Ubuntu-based operating system for the KDE desktop environment with WeTabFiled under: Other;
Some time ago sold off the famous, but somehow flopped WeTab so reasonably priced. Back then you could buy the device for 333 €, maybe even one of you added to the sales and is looking for a way “more” from the WeTab tease out. The community is currently working around the WebTab it in the form of a customized Ubuntu distribution called YaWOS bring.
YaWOS based on Kubuntu 11:04 and was designed specifically for the touch screen of the WeTab. So there are e.g. left and right panels, or large icons in the taskbar and application programs have been expanded so that it can easily catch with our own sausage fingers. Can thus be easier to use Kubuntu on the touch screen of the WeTab.
The installation of
YaWOS can be done from a USB flash drive, find more information about installing it in the wiki of the project. The hardware is well supported WeTab the most part, however, the function disables the screen to rotate, as would be required for these proprietary drivers. Since I unfortunately do not have a WeTab, I can only refer you to a demo on YouTube, in the following video you can see it in action YaWOS.
the WeTab community lists some advantages and disadvantages compared YaWOS / WetabOS. In addition to the video in the list but somewhat slow operation provides perhaps the best of what constitutes YaWOS and whether to take a look at this OS for the WeTab worth.

YaWOS starts slower than WetabOS.YaWOS has much more software installed, you should remove partially. Thus, for example four browsers installed.The individual programs, not all are touch optimized. This can sometimes make quick but himself.YaWOS still has problems with the operation of the Software Center and Dolphins. Alternatively, you can Synaptic and Nautilus verwenden.Die problems seem from the multi-touch control to come.Until
YaWOS leaves the beta stage, it will take a bit longer. Currently it is for example while the website yet to put on “real” legs, so that the entire project can present it better. Should you have further questions, then you can on the forum of the community or the WeTab YaWOS Facebook group to contact about the project. There you will also find information about features that have not yet made it into the beta image.
