No, that was the problem!!! Not made very clear in the article but setting developer mode is an essential first step (I hate break out boxes).
Anyway I now have ubuntu up and running with the lxde desktop. Very nice.
Only one problem. The OS does not respond to the touch pad. You have to press it so the switch operates; you cannot just tap the touch pad. I checked in the various system set up options but I can only find options for right ot left handed mice.
