General :: SD Slot Not Working On Acer Aspire One With Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop?

Apr 24, 2011

My sd slot is not working at all, doesn't recognize it. I think it may have something to do with having the desktop version installed but I could be wrong. I was only introduced to linux 4 weeks ago and am not very familiar with it, but already know I like it more than windows! I have tried three different sd cards and they all work in my other laptop with Windows 7.

General :: Unable To Set Desktop Effects On Acer Aspire 3000

Mar 18, 2011

I recently installed ubuntu 10.10 on my aspire 3000 and everything seemed to work just fine... until I tried to activate desktop effects. tu put it simple, it just don't work. I checked and doubled-checked the lsmod | head to make sure that my drivers (sisfb / sis_drv.so) were installed and loaded. they were. I then made sure that my pc was opengl-supporting (Glxinfo | grep "direct rendering". The answer was positive. With that in mind, I tried many different ways to run compiz(compiz --replace, appearance-desktop effect, run app-compiz) but neither if these gave any results.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Not Working On Acer Aspire One

May 17, 2010

in compliance with bonekracker's advice, i have reposted my SOS. i have the result of the outputs of the commands for ifconfig, iwconfig, and etc i have uploaded it in the file output.doc. i hope this would be helpful in debugging my problem.but before that, i do notice that if i click on the icon for the Network Manager, the Wireless networks is set to 'wireless disabled'. maybe if i can make it turn on, my wireless problem will be solved.. its just that i even if i move the switch for the wifi, it still wouldn't turn on.

Ubuntu :: Battery Icon On Acer Aspire One Not Working

Dec 26, 2010

I just got new netbook for christmas and so I promptly set it up with a dual boot system cause Windows 7 starter is garbage.Anyways after ditching the Netbook Remix because quite frankly I found the Unity setup to be quite garbage. Nothing worked the way I wanted it to and I found it quite annoying.So I ditched it for the regular desktop version. I quickly found that the battery indicator didn't work.

I removed and re added the indicator panel. Nothing. killed the gnome panel and restarted it multiple times. still nothing. Restarted multiple times. nothing. I even reinstalled gnome-power-management to no avail. I also installed laptop-mode-tools and nothing has worked. I went into the power settings and set it to always display the icon and it simply showed a lightning bolt as if there was no battery and it was a tower computer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Still Not Working On 11.04 & Acer Aspire One?

Apr 29, 2011

This bug has been around for years now?!? Surely this can be fixed by now, would somebody please feel this very common issue. I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Acer Aspire One 110AB netbook and everything seems to work fine except the wireless - I can connect via ethernet no problem.

While the wireless can scan for networks - it seems them but they seem to be rather weak signals and also no matter never connect UNLESS I turn off ALL WEP/WPA security clearly not an option.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working On Acer Aspire One D150?

Mar 22, 2010

I had UBR installed and working fine for a month or so, wireless and everything. Then I did a clean re-install while trying to add WinXP to half of my drive.Anyway, with the new install, my wireless chip (BCM4312 802.11b/g) isn't switching on at all. I've tried installing the Broadcom driver that appears when I run Hardware Drivers, but that doesn't help.With the old install, the wireless switch and indicator light on the front of the netbook worked, now nothing.

Output from lshw -C network is:

*-network

product: BCM4312 802.11b/g

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Acer Aspire One Mic Not Working With Flash 10 Chat

Sep 5, 2010

i recently installed ubuntu on my netbook, an acer aspireone. got everything running properly. at first i had a problem with using webcam online for sites using flash 10 (facebook, videos, tinychat), but someone directed me to the adobe control panel and after setting some permissions, everything was working fine. yesterday, i installed a bunch of updates, and since then the built-in microphone stopped working in chat.

the microphone still works if i record audio or use it in other applications. but for all of the sites using flash for video chat (listed above) i can only get the camera working, not the mic. i don't get any error messages or anything different from before. the only difference is that no sound is coming through. i wish i knew which updates i've installed yesterday. one of them must have caused the problem, since it was working fine before then.

CentOS 5 :: Can't Seem To Get A Fresh Install To Boot On A Acer Aspire T160 Desktop Computer?

Aug 7, 2009

i can't seem to get a fresh install to boot on a Acer Aspire T160 desktop computer, after the install finishes (basic install, command line only) it gets past 'Verifying DMI Pool.......' but then nothing, it just hangs, no Grub messages, nothing. Here is my hardware/config

Proc: Sempron 3200
Mem: 512 MB
/dev/hda1 110GB / Bootable
/dev/hda2 4GB Swap
/dev/md0 150GB /home
/dev/sda1 RAID
/dev/sdb1 RAID

i have tried RAID1 and RAID0 for md0, no change, i've also disconnected the raid all together and just installed on the IDE drive, still nothing. I noticed the BIOS supports hardware RAID but i have that disabled from past experiences and opting for software raid instead. i've gone through 'linux rescue' and reinstalled Grub, rebuilt raids and checked disks.

an interesting thing happens tho if i just have the IDE drive plugged in and nothing else... i get a BIOS message asking to plug in a bootable disk, does this mean it doesn't see my linux install at all? doesn't know to pass the boot along to /dev/hda?

i'm running out of ideas, tho neither have i tried installing to the raid... nor have i tried any other distros (Fedora, Ubuntu) on this machine yet.

Debian Hardware :: Acer Aspire One - Synaptics Touchpad Not Working At All?

Apr 1, 2011

I tried to create an xorg.conf because I didn't have one already. I put the configuration for the synaptics touchpad in it and in the gnome preferences/mouse my touchpad actually was recognized by its name. But still it didn't work :/ I tried deleting my xorg.conf and making a xorg.conf.d directory with synaptics.conf because I saw someone recommend it in another thread. But now the gnome/mouse settings doesn't see it and it still doesn't work. I've read several threads from Arch Linux's forums saying it may be that the module is loaded twice, but I really have no idea.

Here's the /proc/bus/input/devices:

I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0007 Version=01b1
N: Name="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0

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 :: 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

Fedora Hardware :: Aspire One (A110) Suspend Fails With SDHC Card In LH Slot.

Dec 25, 2009

F12 on my aspire one (A110, the original 8Gb SSD model) works well with only one significant problem.

Suspend fails; the screen fades to black, backlight stays on, macine stops responding to keyboard/mouse/powerswitch and just hangs (for at least an hour... longest I left it). Only thing that works is a 5 second click of death on the powerswitch. Plus an FSCK on at least one occasion after reboot. I have not been able to check if SSH and shutdown possible (on vacation) plus have logs go to a tmpfs (to save my SSD) so no log info. Similarly I cannot confirm if this affects hibernate because I run without a swapfile (SSD again, i.5Gb ram installed and I have never come even close to running out of memory).

But I think I have the culprit anyway:[url]

As described there; shutdown fails if there is a mounted card in the cardreader slot (/dev/mmcblk0) My system has a 4Gb SDHC card in the LH slot with a single XFS filesystem; which has my homedir on it; if I unmount that filesystem (but do not remove the card) shutdown and restore appear to work properly. But if the filesytem is mounted I get the bsod. Linked bug suggests this is restricted to large filesystems (?SDHC?) but I have not fully confirmed, although that matches my situation.

Posting here to see if anyone has any further info/workarounds, to ensure the fedora crew are aware that this appears to affect F12 (and is a regression, F11 suspended fine) and make sure it is documented somewhere. The linked bug also states similar bad suspend activity on other netbooks.

I'll try some other variations (and see if it also happens with USB sticks/RH cardrader, and report back here.

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 :: Acer Aspire 7741z-5731 With Kubuntu/Ubuntu/and Mint KDE?

Mar 8, 2011

I recently acquired an Acer Aspire 7741Z-5731. I've tried to install Kubuntu and Ubuntu 10.10 - both give me problems with video and sound. I have researched this without finding a definitive answer that works. On the video issue - both Kubuntu and Ubuntu boot and work fine on the the USB Drive. When installed however - both just boot to a black screen prompt. Neither address the soundcard that came with the Acer - both show "dummy output" under the gui interface for changing sound settings.

On Linux Mint KDE - installs fine - just not able to get sound - same as above - only "dummy output" is available in the gui. I've tried reading the Ubuntu and Kubuntu posts at their forums. The problem is that when I start messing around in terminal - I don't get the same results that the posts indicate. I do know that ALSA is not installed by default in any one of the three distros I'm working with. I tried installing it from the terminal per the instructions I found on several linux forums - no luck however.

Why am I having such a problem getting Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Linux Mint to load "out of the box" so to speak on a somewhat standard laptop? OpenSuse worked flawlessly - I just don't like it as much as the Ubuntu derrivatives. I suspect that Debian may also work "out of the box" without issues. I am even considering Mandriva. As a newbie to linux, I find it extremely frustrating that I cant just install the software and have it work without having to do a bunch of stuff in a terminal window that I either don't fully understand, or that doesn't produce the expected results. Is this what a new user can anticipate when they opt to try and learn linux - a bunch of command line hooo - ya ? Anyone have any suggestions on how to get any of these to load on my Acer Aspire 7741Z-5731? It really should not be this difficult or frustrating to get a distro that is touted as "the most popular" to install and work right off the USB or CD/DVD install. It is seemingly easy to understand why Linux has not yet become a windows or mac killer. There should be a website for linux that can determine what drivers you need and automatically install them so for the user so that the command line can be ignored by the new user.
