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!
my old firefox is obsolete. I've downloaded 3.6, successfully as far as I can see, but it's just sitting there on the hard drive as a file, it doesn't start up, I just get the same old version 2 which came with the machine and it's dead in the water really.
I'm trying to use iTunes and poker sites on my acer aspire one with linux linpus lite. I've followed previous threads and learned how to add/remove programs and I've downloaded wine. My wine programs show up under 'other' and I have: wine configuration; wine file; wine boot; wine software ininstaller and winhelp (not sure if the last is wine or not) Just can't navigate my way through any of these to find how to actually RUN wine. Also, if you think this is not the best way to fully use poker websites (I'm not happy with the iphone style no download play) or iTunes.
OK I do have a file called firefox-3.6.3-tar.bz2 which I downloaded from the mozilla web site. This file sits now in "Downloads". /home/usr/downloads now I want to rename the old firefox 2.0 version just in case I am going to mess up something. I believe the "old" version sits in /usr/lib - so I just can rename this with mv firefox to firefox.old right? if I have done that how can I unpack and install the firefox-3.6.3-tar.bz2 file?
I have an aa1 with the original set up but fire fox is to old for some sites how can I instal a new vertion Sorry, its is an acer aspire 1 with linpus, I think, it comes pre installed with fire fox but an old version.
I have problem with the latest linux distors, there is no light on the screen its a acer sprite 7715z, i had ubuntu 9.04/10.04 and opensuse(dont remeber what version it was) on it before and it worked fine I tryed the latest versions of opensuse, debian, fedora & ubuntu and it no light on the screen after it booted the system
i searched on google a while and i found some bug reports about same problem: [URL]...so what can i do? is it something with the kernel? How can i fix this? I seriously need linux for my job.. (We are switching from windows to linux and i have to get used to it so i can keep my job)
i bought this computer yesterday and the wireless network isn't working. I read that a right click on the network manager icon (top right) should show a list of the available wireless networks, but for me none appear. Ive tried to manually connect to the network by putting the IP address etc, but this still doesn't work. I have been able to connect to the internet but with an ethernet cable. the wireless card is the Atheros AR5001. This is my first time using linux and any help would be great.
I'm absolotly not sure, if I'm right here. During start I see the message "unknown (unsupported) BIOS version Acer/Aspire 6920/V1.14 , please report, aborting!"but I did not found any Mail or URI, where I can report this one. So I paste the partof the boot.msg here. Hopefully it will be on the right place. If not :
I have had my little netbook for over a year now but I must admit, that Linpus and I do not like each other (thinking of having someone put Ubuntu on it - heard thats better).Now I have moved and am trying to get my netbook to access the new internet connection. So far so good. The wireless connection is standing (100% connected), but now I get the message Server not found. I am using Firefox by the way. And yes, I have googled this problem, all plus are plugged, I have been online with this computer before etc.And right now I am online with my second computer, which has no problems accessing the internet.What now? I must also say that for a NETbook I am having a hell lot of trouble going online... Where other computers just connect, this little devil has problems very often.
I assume the operating system for the Aspire One i have called 'Linpus' made by Linux is designed to be effectively bullet proof (it being a netbook), and as such installing any new programs or modifying anything is a bit more tricky. I didn't realize this, although I am fully behind my choice of Linux over Windows still, I just didn't realize it was a 'lite' version that meant simple tasks were a bit more complex.
That said, would most people suggest changing the OS of this 1gb RAM 8gb HD netbook to a more open version of Linux? If this is even possible or recommended. Not sure what the options are, would love a heads up. But to my main question. I am trying to update drivers on my old Windows DELL Inspiron which I 'nuked' using DBAN (which was loads of fun when I finally got it to work! Loved typing in 'autonuke'!! ) so need to download its wireless driver files i 'nuked' using my Aspire One and Linpus - hopefully directly to the USB Flash drive I have made by Lexar.
However, when I plug in the USB Flash drive to any of the 3 USB ports there is no automatic response. I can't find it using my 'windows knowledge' looking through folders and such, and there is no 'My computer' icon in this Linux Linpus Lite. So where I find my USB Flash drive? Does Linpus support this?
I am completely new to linux an have read the replies to similar questions but am unsure of how to access the directory mentioned ~/.gconf/system/networking .I also do not have a system recovery disc or flash drive
I just installed Fedora 12 x86 in an Acer Aspire One D250. Everything ran smoothly and was detected upon install but unfortunately after all updates were applied to it I ended with a device with no network connection (not even Ethernet).
This appears to be kernel-related because the old kernel (stock) works as expected. The problematic kernel version is (220.127.116.11-70.fc12.i686).
Is there any known workaround for this? Or am I condemned to run this older kernel until the other one gets fixed?
Another question, in the event a new kernel comes out I'd like to keep to older one as a back up, how can I arrange that?
I reinstalled my Acer netbook with the newest Ubuntu remix edition,ything worked fine.Today I performed an update, and after rebooting the mousepad decided to stop working, I've checked if the disable mousepad feature was turned on: it wasn't.currently I'm running 2.6.35-22-generic, how to fix this glitch ?
i bought an Acer aspire one through an official acer website and i got it for cheaper than a XP one, i got it with Linux on it. As i am someone that looks for a great deal. i took it, I then realized that Linux is pretty hard to operate.can i replace linux with window?
I have a problem with certain web sites, mainly BBC when the page just disappears and it just reverts to my desktop.I tried installing more up to date version of Firefox but it keeps on happening- mainly it seems when BBC site has fancy graphics.
my aspire one netbook which uses linux will not start. when i press the power button, it starts booting then will just give me a blank screen. my problem is that i dont know my system user password so can go into setup.
i have lost internet on acer aspire one when i tried to add firefox 3.6 and cannot solve the problem.....i have tried several times and nothing works, it tells me it either failed or is unknown..... i can't even get back to firefox 2....everything was ok until i added adobe flashplayer and when i rebooted to make it work there was no internet at all and it's my sisters netbook not mine.
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.
I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook that has lost connection with the Internet. On clicking the Browser button I get a message saying "Your wired device is now connected" - but nothing happens. It was working fine up till about a week ago. A substituted computer will work OK from the same output from the Router/ Modem through the same cable.
Package gnome-bluetooth-2.28.6-2.fc12.i686 already installed and latest version so that's done.I'm certain I have a bluetooth adapter inside my laptop, however when I go to System > Preferences > Bluetooth, the started program says there are no bleutooth devices.There is a hardware button with the bluetooth symbol.

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).
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: email@example.com
