FlintOS boots straight into chromium, and works just like ChromeOS
ELAR systems have an Lubuntu SD image for ASUS Tinker Board here -> Download: Lubuntu
In the latest image (version 3.0), SD card will be resized upon the first boot to extend to the max size of the SD. The root account password is forced to be changed in first login as well. This has improved the security issue preventing others to login to your system as the SSH is enabled by default in this image. WiFi and Bluetooth both works fine and system performance has been improved as well.
Sound/Audio works great without any issue. Enjoy listening to a Bonus Sound Track "A Way To The Heaven" composed and arranged by Saeid Ghazagh, available in "Music" folder.
How-tos in TinkerOS
Follow the instructions on http://www.yuriybaldyasov.com/2017/05/15/asus-tinker-board-tightvnc-server-installation-steps/
sudo apt-get install x11vnc
The following file shoud be opened ~/.config/lxsessions/LXDE/autostart and this line should be added to the bottom:
@x11vnc -noxrecord -forever
-noxrecord fixes a problem it has with stack smashing on this board
-forever option keeps the server alive after a connect and disconnect from a client
It must be restarted to run without a terminal.
