My Guadec 07 presentation was: Hildon Desktop running on Linux-PC:

Well, I can speak only about myself, but my lightning talk can't be
really made available as slides
as it was just a demo. You can find the instructions to replicate it
from here, a Hildon Desktop running
on your laptop is always a lot cooler than some slides:

Follow all the steps plus create .desktop -entry for gdm for Hildon
Desktop (copy paste from
some old file), remove all localization things as you don't need them
really for try it out
and name it just as "Hildon Desktop". Make it start the
hildon-session.sh script you have
created and please remove the export display=:2 assignment because you
want to run it on your X for real
(and not on Xephyr). 

I have been working now with Hildon Desktop without scratchbox
completely. Depending on compiler
you may find minor compilation issues because of the -Werror compilation
flag is used and the newer compilers
are more strict than the older ones, in those cases, a quick fix is
simply to remove the -Werror -flag.

You may want to recompile also X and include the composite patch on it
(which not mentioned on the instructions) and the result may look less
broken on your PC (it is still not perfect as the bitmap graphics for
example don't scale and there are visual issues which require fixing
before it looks right on the large PC screen).
