    Uh oh, I did not put in how to accomplish this. Follow the commands in the code box below:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    # Will ask for your user password
    This editor should be easy enough for you to figure out. Let me know if you need more help; I'm almost always willing to help out with Linux/BSD/other Unix stuff on this forum.

    I am trying to compile the Displaylink drivers to use with a Dell dock; but it requires the kernel headers for this kernel. Any idea where I might find those? : /

    They may not be in the lite download, but the full version (includes all of the Nvidia development stuff) may have them. I can't answer well since I don't use L4T Ubuntu often enough to answer.

    I downloaded and installed the "cuda" version incase of something like this. Unfortunately, it does not appear to include the kernel headers:(I will keep looking and report back if I find them.

    Edit: I also have a less important issue; I cannot figure out how to get my mouse cursor to stop disappearing when I touch the screen. It is rather infuriating. I had disabled it in earlier versions of L4T, but I had to reinstall to use the newer version, and cannot find how I did it.

    Edit 2: I figured out my mouse issue
    Just run:
    sudo gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.cursor active false
    And the cursor sticks!

    I finally managed to do it for xpadneo. I put together a repository of necessary files, kernel headers included: github dot com slash KiralyCraft slash SwitchRootXpadNeo (weirdly posted because I'm a new member and I can't post links)

    The install.sh script prepares the necessary files until line 88. That's all you need.

    EDIT: I created an account specifically for this, hope it helps!

    Thank you! This helps a lot. I have compiled and installed the kernel header (helped in no small part by your script). Now I just have to get the DisplayLink install script to except these headers (It is looking for the default 4.9.140 headers).
    Edit:Spelling

    Anyone know if It's possible to upgrade to Ubuntu 20 from this release?

    It is possible with the "do-release-upgrade" command, but I would not recommend doing this on a Switch, unless you're prepared to repair or reinstall the system in case something breaks, or the system cannot boot up anymore.

    I saw on discord that the devs said not to manually upgrade and that an official update to L4T will be coming.

    If anyone interested, Here's a Dolphin emulator package ready to install. Compiled from the source by me few day ago.

    It's the main Dolphin, wich in my tests prove to be faster than Ishiruka's.

    To install, unzip and tap/double click on the .deb file and choose install on the window that will open.

    You may need to install some dependencies. To do that, open Terminal and paste/type this:
    sudo apt install git cmake ffmpeg libavcodec-dev libevdev-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libavformat-dev libswscale-dev libsfml-dev libminiupnpc-dev libmbedtls-dev curl libhidapi-dev libwxbase3.0-dev libwxgtk3.0-dev libpangocairo-1.0-0 libgtk2.0-dev libbluetooth-dev qt5-default qtbase5-private-dev libudev-dev libxi-dev

    By the way, after compiling a program, you can make a package of it, that can be easily installed and shared afterwards.:)

    To accomplish that, you will need a program called "Checkinstall". To install it, type/paste this on Terminal:
    sudo apt-get install checkinstall
    Then, after you compile a program, to create the package you just type the following on the Terminal: sudo checkinstall --install=no
    ..and answer some questions that the program will ask. For more info on how to use Checkinstall: https://ostechnix.com/build-packages-source-using-checkinstall/

    Hope it helps, and incentive you guys to share some apps here.:)

    Is it ok for me to dist upgrade to 20.04 without breaking everything? I was going to try installing lubuntu-desktop, but unfortunately it's only available on 19.04 and newer for arm64 processors.

    Or if you know of another lightweight desktop that would be great. I'm not the most familiar with Linux systems.

    Don't try to dist upgrade just yet, unless you know what you're doing. Check out some of these alternate desktop environments which can be installed on most Linux distros, including on regular PCs:
    • KDE (not exactly lightweight in terms of how packages are installed initially, but it can run in a lightweight mode)
    • LxQt/LXDE (try out the former)
    • MATE
    • XFCE

    On x86 systems, this is possible with PPAs, Snaps, or Flatpaks, but since the Nintendo Switch is 64-bit ARM (armv8), such precompiled packages don't really exist, sorry. Your only option left would be to compile Blender from source.

    Many thanks for your easy instruction, man. Does it runs Wii games such as Super Mario Galaxy and Galaxy 2 fully ?

    If someone could upload their '/etc/nv_boot_control.conf' file here that would be great. I seem to have deleted my copy? Idk, I have 3 broken packages that say they need it. (nvidia-l4t-xusb-firmware, nvidia-l4t-initrd, and nvidia-l4t-apt-source)
