[ChromiumOS] Aura

I've been sitting and working away at this for a couple days now, with no avail. I'm trying to get the Aura window manager to work, and I'm using the chromeos login 'hack' as they call it, from Ubuntu. I modified the .deb and installed it with dpkg(from the AUR) successfully, and I do have a option in my sessions list, which fails. When I try to start it in a window via the terminal, I get errors about libudev.so.0 and the DISPLAY variable. I'm nowhere near a expert a Xorg, and I would enjoy some help. Thanks.

It always makes me laugh when people complain and rage over any distro's management ideal, when this is a linux community, and you could always make your own distro and experience the pains yourself.

Re: [ChromiumOS] Aura

Are you using a 64-bit system? (It's an easy thing to overlook).

I was looking for someone to have got this working on systems other than Ubuntu, but I've yet to find a working workaround. Seems like is states "Ubuntu only" for a reason...

Yes I'm using 64bit. From what I have found, Ubuntu handles matchbox(a dependency) differently than arch does.  I might have to go step through the sourcecode and see if I can find anything.

Hats off to you for digging this far back in the fourums.
