    Sadly I dont have a working switch that I can do this with. I mean, the touchscreen works, if I know where things are I can blindly do it

    So do I only have to download the whole branch on github as zip and then compile it in Ubuntu or how does this work?

    Yeah follow the instructions in the readme on github. You may have to manually install some dependencies.

    I can try to get the initial setup done for you after work, but that won't be for another 7 hours.

    If we can't use the dock for setup, and USB OTG is buggy. How do we type in the fields to complete setup?

    Looks very interesting, I’ll have to give it a go and I’m certainly looking forward to the future developments of this.

    Thank you for all of your hard work and time.

    You should be fine with leaving it in the dock when starting setup, the reason i say not to do that is because it can mess with touch
    Should do
    Yup
    There is an on screen keyboard, or you can put in dock but could be various issues with touch
