Re: Hp Slate 2 atom 2gb tablet
To be honest, there are very, very few people running Ubuntu on a tablet that does not have a keyboard. Also, due to timezones a lot of people won't be online at the time that your thread is on the first page of messages.
I don't especially want to log out of my system at the moment to check, but I thought there was an icon near the top of the screen that looks like a little man. If you touch that you should get a couple of Accessibility options, one of them being Onscreen Keyboard.
If the Ubuntu login screen doesn't have that, the Xubuntu login screen definitely does. You could connect a USB keyboard and install the Xubuntu Greeter. Otherwise, if this is not an option, you could install Xubuntu and then install Unity and the regular Ubuntu applications over the top; you'll retain the Xubuntu login screen but it will log in as Ubuntu. I know this because that's exactly what I did on my netbook.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
