General :: To Start On Triple Boot Acer Aspire One Netbook

May 13, 2011

I currently have an Acer Aspire One netbook 120GB drive which came with Linpus lite preloaded. I have set-up dual boot a year or so ago. It now dual boots to either Linpus or Vista (yes I know!) via the Linpus grub.conf ( I got the instructions I think from here: [URL] I want to get the latest Ubuntu 11.04 build on this as a third boot option. If this work OK I may ditch the Linpus or Vista build at some point. So I've used Gparted on a USB drive to setup up three extended Logical Partitions (sda5, 6 and 7).

I then loaded Ubuntu s/w via an external drive with

/boot on 100MB /sda5
Swap on 1GB /sda6
/ on the 40GB+ /sda7

When I was asked for the bootloader location in the Ubuntu install gui I chose /sda5 (out of complete ignorance) All fine at this point. What do I have to get the linpus lite /boot/grub/grub.conf to see and start ubuntu?? Or is there something else I need to do?? Also, how does Ubuntu know which swap partition to use, as there is already one for the linpus lite install.

Ubuntu :: Installing 10.10 Netbook Remix Edition Onto A Acer Aspire One Netbook?

Jan 18, 2011

I am having trouble installing Ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix edition onto a Acer Aspire one netbook. I am attempting to install the OS from a 16GB PNY usb drive w/ the usb-universal installer and ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix .ISO

The reoccurring problem that I am encountering is that when I boot from the USB-drive and begin to install everything seems to be working, and then it is stuck at the menu where it asks who are you?; and of course i have filled in everything asked and at the bottom where you can look at what its doing in the terminal/detail section all it says is ready when you are, and the forward tap is unselectable.

General :: Browser Icon Not Responding On Acer Aspire One Netbook Lite V1.0.13.E

Dec 2, 2010

I have been using my Acer Aspire One Netbook, with Linux Lite v1.0.13.E as loaded on purchase, happily for a year or so. Yesterday, when I clicked on the Browser picture to open up Firefox, nothing happened. I can't find how to access anything which will let me check if the icon has lost a link. I have looked on the File Manager and can see the .mozilla folder but don't know what to look for, nor what to do from here.

I have now managed to add the sub-menu which was linked to here: [URL] as a way to Install apps. I can now use this directory to try and open Firefox Web Browser - I then get the message "Failed to execute default web browser Input/output error.

I had XP, but I'd like to use the entire disk for UNE now. how to get it to install?

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting Wireless To Work On Acer Aspire D260 Netbook

Jan 26, 2011

I've just worked out how to get the wireless card working with an Acer Aspire D260 wireless card to work.
Enter terminal command;
sudo apt-get install wifi-radar

Then reboot ubuntu 10.04 after it has installed, network manager should now detect wireless networks in range and allow connection, right click network manager icon and select "Enable Wireless" or "Disable wireless" as required to turn on or off. So many others have had problems getting the wifi to work with Acer Aspire D260 netbooks and ubuntu 10.04.

Slackware :: Install Gateway LT2104u (Acer Aspire One 532h) Netbook?

May 27, 2010

STEP 1) Install Slackware 13.1 (everything works out of the box*) Gotcha: 3d isn't enabled in X Fix: Yes it is... run glxgears from a console or run glxinfo | grep render.

Gotcha: No CD drive to install from Fix 1: Get a usb CDROM drive Fix 2: Boot off of a thumbdrive using the usbboot.img (found on disc 6) Gotcha: Card Reader (ENE Technology) doesn't work Fix: You have to use the MMC driver-modprobe mmc_core modprobe sdhci modprobe mmc_blockIt should now show up in dmesg and /dev/mmcblk0p1 should be created if it is an SD card. NOTE: SD Card portion works using SDHCI driver. NO DRIVERS for XD and MS cards yet. *Card reader is gimped due to ENE Technology being evil.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Netbook Remix On Acer Aspire One Zg5 Model - Error: No Such Device

Jul 30, 2010

I just tried to install ubuntu 10.04 to the hard drive of my netbook as i prefer it greatly over the standard linpus one. The operating system booted fine from a bootable usb drive and so i thought if i install it it should run.

so...i got to work installing the system...it completed and asked me to restart, which i did. From there the boot up screen comes on for the pc.....the one where it says press f2 for setup and f12 for boot priority....then goes to a black screen. on this black screen i have a message which says...

"error: no such device: 992fddd7-54c1-45e0-b990-7220c6fa9005 grub rescue>"

Ubuntu Networking :: Acer Aspire One D250-1958 W/ AR928X - No Wireless - Netbook Picks Signal - When Provide Key It Fails To Connect

May 13, 2010

I have a new Acer Aspire One, model D250-1958. It uses the Atheros AR928X. I've tried Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 and Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04, as well as the conventional Ubuntu. Everything works beautifully, except no wireless. The netbook picks up the signal, but when I provide the Key it fails to connect, and eventually prompts me for the key again.

I've tried to research this on my own, but haven't found a solution. In particular, the solution reported by narnie for his Acer Aspire One D250-1584, <HERE>, didn't work for me.

I'd really like to get this working. The netbook will be much less useful if it can't make use of our wireless router.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Get X To Start On Acer Aspire 5100

Dec 21, 2009

Had the RC versions of 11.2 running on my laptop but now the release version is out X no longer installs properly, it gets so far through the installation but then goes to a black screen which is totally unresponsive. If I force a power-off/on it only comes up in text mode and I cannot get X to start automatically. I can get startx to work if I manually reconfigure sax2 using 0=radeon but no way can I get this to happen at startup. Seems a very retrograde situation and something that completely got past quality control.

Probably the end of my time with OpenSuse having been a user for over 5 years, at least Ubuntu installs straight in with no problems whatsoever - exactly what I would have expected from OpenSuse.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Wont Start On Acer Aspire One D150?

Jan 30, 2011

I have been customizing my 10.10 NBR to my personal liking.I have already disabled the default Unity "experience" and enabled Gnome.However I have hit a bit of a tough spot with Compiz. It will install, and it appears I enable it in the Visual Effects menu, but I do not think it actually is enables and once I close the dialog it reverts back to the "none" option in Visual Effects.What I dont understand is that Compiz worked fine on 9.10 NBR.I would just give up, but I really want window previews with the Talika plugin.My netbook is a Acer Aspire One D150.

Server :: Acer Aspire Easystore H340 - How Does It Start Without A User Doing A Login

Mar 6, 2011

I have an H340 Home Server, and I really want to eliminate any Windows on it.Having read what people have written here, I installed Ubuntu Server 10.10 on an empty drive via an existing machine. Then I removed the supplied 1 TB drive with Windows Server on it from the H340, inserted the new Ubuntu server drive.Now I can power up the machine, the lights come on, the network light flickers with activity, and...

Well, I am at a bit of a loss at what to "do" now. The H340 is connected to a router, just like my existing machine, so it gets an IP address from the DHCP server in the router. How do I actually connect to the H340? I really don't know. Do I go "Places->Network"? or "Places->Connect to Server"? Or do I do a remote desktop connection?

When it is powered up, how does it start without a user doing a login? There is no keyboard, screen, etc. Only the network cable. I have simply never had to deal with a Server before, so I need some hand-holding for a while. I have Ubuntu 10.10 desktop and Windows 7 dual boot.

General :: Acer Aspire One D255e - N57 And Ubuntu Installation?

Jun 5, 2011

The acer netbook D255e - N57 comes with a factory installed linux OS but Acer reps seem unable to fully instal Ubuntu 10.1 or 10.04. Even linux lite lacked the drivers to run several things. Is it possible to do this??? If it can be fully installed I will definitely go for a new cyber life with linux but if not I may have to remain a thrall to bill gates and go for a Eee PC netbook instead.

General :: Opening / Loading .exe Files Acer Aspire One?

Aug 10, 2010

I bought a Acer Aspire One A110-Ab Netbook, Linpus Linux Lite version, 512MB DDR2 RAM, 8GB NAND Flash

Just for openers, I don't understand how you "open" (?) "load" (?).EXE files or make them happen.I have been using Windows all my life & to remember you just CLICK on a .exe file and it just 'happens'

Specifically, I am in Turkey and had to purchase a dongle from a Turkish phone company to access the Internet. When I insert the dongle, it shows the relevant .EXE file but when I click on it, nothing happens. No-one here knows LINUX.

I just one to talk to someone who has the same ACER as me and who can guide me through with GREATED simplicity (really idiot instructions would be fine).

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 Installation On Acer Aspire 3000?

Mar 12, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a Laptop Acer Aspire 3000 everything works perfect... excluding.... the Wireless Networks.

1. I cannot check marked Enable Wireless
2. Wireless Network disabled

The driver is installed when I installed Ubuntu 10.10 it asked me to install this. Is not a problem of driver I think. It is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312

I found out the following:
1. I tried rfkill unblock all with negative results
2. rfkill list phy0: Wireless LAN, Soft blocked: no, Hard blocked: yes
3. look in the file system: NetworkingEnabled=true, WirelessEnabled=false, WWANEnabled=true

Is this really not supported by Ubuntu ?? username: melfrimarlyne e-mail: ferris@sowerseed.aw

General :: Acer Aspire One With Linux Linpus Will Not Connect To WiFi

Jan 9, 2011

I haven't had a problem with this yet, but today I was online via my wifi connection and then the network center said there was no connection. My modem said I had full bars, and I tried restarting both the modem and the laptop, but nothing. The internet works if I plug in the ethernet cable, but will not pick up the wifi signal. I called my service provider and for 2 hours they couldn't figure out how to connect it because it has Linux. They tried to set up a new password protected network because they said the modem was working fine, so they had me delete the old network from the computer... but when I tried to set up a new network it still was not picking up a wireless signal. Ive tried flicking the switch on the front of the laptop and it still will not pick up a signal. Please help me out with this... I have no clue how to use Linux!

no internal record or web cam, hence no phone capability either with Skype. Acer will have zero warranty conversations due to OS system change. Previously the machine was crashing mostly while using Open Office
