This is a custom image I have created for the Jetson Nano. ( Download link at the bottom. )
Built from the ground up using debootstrap, this image is based on a minimal Xubuntu-core / Xfce4 installation for a snappy desktop experience and a lighter weight alternative to the L4T Ubuntu image. This image is only 3.5 Gigabytes.
(Please note: Your device must be rebooted at least once before all the drivers will be loaded correctly. The first boot is a good time to create any user accounts.)
Default Username: jetson
Default Password: 12345
Steps to create a new user and delete the default
- Download the archive and decompress it. (image size= 3.5 GB)
- Burn the .img with Belena Etcher or another tool
- Pop it in and boot the nano!
- Login using Username: jetson Password: 12345
- Open a term and sudo adduser somenewadmin
- sudo usermod -aG sudo somenewadmin
- sudo adduser somenewadmin adm
- sudo adduser somenewadmin plugdev
- exit (and log in as somenewadmin)
- Open terminal again and sudo deluser --remove-home jetson
The image contains the following:
The L4T-Jetson-Driver-Package-R32.1 (Everything thats normally installed with this package is included, you can check nvidias package manifest if you don’t already know what it is)
Xubuntu-core (basically everything that’s included in a typical minimal xubuntu/xfce4 installation)
VLC Media Player
Compton ( Compositor program to make everything silky smooth )
A couple GTK themes and a wallpapers to make things look pretty.
And that’s pretty much it! , I’ll attach a package manifest for everyone to take a look at.
Compton is set to autostart and the configuration file is added to the .config folder in the $HOME directory … feel free to play around with the settings but what I have feels pretty nice.
If there is anything anyone thinks I can do to improve this image let me know! if there is interest i’d like to create an image that contains everything the L4T image does like all the development tools , The Media API package , Cuda repositories and whatnot but as it stands now people can just use the SDK tool to install what they need.
let me know if you have any questions!!
