    You can manually launch the webtop environment with just the HDMI cable by executing

    /osh/etc/init.d/startX.sh

    Can you try using /osh/etc/init.d/startX.SH instead? I don't have a bt kbd/mouse here to be able to play with this...

    How do you get to command line to run this?

    EDIIT:
    OK, I used astro to try to run this, but when I select startX it says ".sh" filled does not exist. Any advice?
