Hm, I'm using the openmoko-terminal2 without problems on ASU. The tricky part 
was to use the Illume keyboard with GTK applications. At freeyourphone.de was 
a hint that you have to install ONLY  matchbox-keyboard-im (see 
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Complete_QWERTY_Keyboard_On_The_Freerunner) and 
GTK applications will start Illume keyboard. I know, it is strange. However 
it worked :-)
