USB B connection is on left-hand side of the cradle, the two USB A connections are on the front.

Installing the Orbiter

  • Make sure your system is setup according to the network specifications detailed here
  • Format a USB stick. I like Gparted. Use a stick that is at least 1GB.
  • Download the file.
  • Uncompress it
 sudo bunzip2 webpad-gamma1.dd.bz2
  • Copy the file to the stick using dd.
 sudo dd if=webpad-gamma1.dd of=/dev/sda 
where /dev/sda is the location of your USB stick. You can use Gparted to determine the location of your stick.
  • Plug the stick into the WebDT 366 and power it on.
  • A LinuxMCE splace screen should appear and the installation process will begin automatically.
  • After the installation completes, power down the device, remove the USB stick, and power it back on.
  • The device will boot and show a LinuxMCE splash screen along with a progress bar. After this is loaded, you will be presented with a screen to input your wireless settings.
  • The splash screen will reappear and then a series of screens will ask for input so that an Orbiter can be generated.


  • If you receive the following error:
 USB Boot Device :  MASS Storage Class [00F9h/FFh/3Fh]
 Missing operating system.
 No boot device present. Halting.

you have most likely used dd incorrectly:

   sudo dd if=webpad-gamma1.dd of=/dev/sda1

Note the addition of the "1" at the end of "/dev/sda". Be sure and use dd without this, or any other number.

  • If your flash drive has multiple partitions, you can make a bootable USB disk with a program like UBCD and then remove the multiple partitions, create one, and then proceed with the installation instructions shown above.
  • If your USB stick won't fit into the USB port of the WebDT, use a USB cable extender.


  • To access the terminal, press the third soft key when the splash screen is displayed upon booting. If this does not work, attach a keyboard to the USB port and when the splash screen appears, press:
  • From the terminal, you can run the configuration utility by entering:
  • You can ssh into the tablet using the username of root and the password of root
  • Pressing the power key once will suspend the device. Pressing it again will bring it out of suspend.
  • Holding the power key will power down the device.
  • Pressing the second soft key will hide the UI and pressing the first soft key will bring it back. This is useful if you don't want the UI displayed but still want quick access to using the device.
  • Pressing the third soft key will bring up the wireless settings configuration screen.
  • Pressing the fourth soft key will reload the orbiter.
  • Pressing the third soft key plus UP/DOWN on the 4way button on the right, adjusts the brightness of the screen

This forum post proved most useful in creating these instructions.

The DT366 will timeout (screen blanks). To make sure you first screen touch doesn't launch anything, do the following:-

TSCHAKeee pointed out not to touch the button on the right, that I could go to Computing - Web Admin - go to Orbiters by either looking on the left side for devices - orbiters or wizard - devices- orbiters. Find the correct orbiter, select advanced and 3 rows or so from the bottom, check Ignore First event, then save and reload
