I'm building a home-brewed "tablet" using a 10" touchscreen hooked up to an Asus Tinkerboard. Ultimately I want it to function as much like an Android tablet as possible, but the Android distro supplied by Asus is exceedingly difficult to work with, so I'm looking to customize Armbian to have a more "tablet-like" interface. Unfortunately I don't see any obvious way to do that, as Armbian operates more like a standard desktop than a tablet.
Is there a package out there that can adapt Armbian for this purpose, or even an alternative to using Armbian that may be better-suited to my needs?
Edit for clarification: I want the device to recreate the experience of a consumer Android tablet, with an entirely touch-based interface, menus accessed by "pull-down", and a smooth touchscreen keyboard. Having access to the Google Play Store and Services would be excellent, but I can be flexible about that.
Currently the touchscreen works fine but it doesn't accept the same "gestures" (pulling menus, pinch zoom, etc.), touches are simply interpreted as mouse clicks on a desktop. There is also no context-sensitive keyboard (I've tried the matchbook keyboard but it's clunky to work with in this scenario).
