Ubuntu / Apple :: Intermittant Wifi Connections On MacBook Pro 3,1 Lucid 64 Bit?

May 8, 2010

I installed the bleeding edge drivers using a guide I was referred to from the wiki, when I was having intermittent wifi connections. It worked well for about two days, but now it's just as intermittent as before, and it works just fine in OSX and on other machines, so I'm thinking I need to change the driver.

How do I go about installing another driver? Which ones have you had luck with for a MacBook Pro Santa Rosa 3,1 running lucid under 64 bits?

Ubuntu / Apple :: MacBook Pro 6,2 Sound Not Working

May 6, 2010

First macbook. I've managed to get everything I really need running except sound. I'm 5-year ubuntu user so if anyone asks for any system info I'll probably be able to manage it. This is the only sound-related entry I could find in lspci.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Unabling Wifi Macbook Air 10.04?

Jul 1, 2010

I have installed 10.04 on my macbook air. As I can't physically connect a macbook air to the internet there is no way to download the necessary drivers and the 'hardware packages' doesn't have the nvidea or broadcom packages which were present when I booted off the livecd. I presume therefore that, like gparted, these are only present on the livecd & aren't installed by default. When I installed karmic I downloaded the drivers from my mac partition then transferred them over. I've tried doing the same with the lucid equivalents,[URL].. but when I try to unpack them (32-bit versions as is the version of Lucid I have) in the correct order each returns an error saying the drivers are either damaged or I don't have permission. I definately have the necessary read/write permissions so assume they must be damaged somehow.

If I can't connect to the internet Ubuntu is useless. Has anyone got any idea as to how I can enable wifi please?

Ubuntu / Apple :: MacBook Air 3,2 && Bad Wifi Performance?

Jun 23, 2011

running natty 64bit @ MBA3,2.Wifi performance is sometimes abysmal (~200ms ping to AP, 10% packetloss) with my Linksys WRT54Gv2 AP.It is not the hardware, as there is no wifi problem while running MacOSX at the same location.It is not the location, as MacOSX works fine (~6ms), and so does another computer with wifi connection (~1ms) on the same desk.So I'm suspecting the driver: Broadcom BCM4353 802.11 Hybrid Wireless Controller

Ubuntu / Apple :: How To Install Lucid On MacBook Pro 5.3

Apr 30, 2010

I have created a partition through Boot Camp, downloaded the 64 bit Intel installer for PC and Mac, verified the checksum, burned a CD from its image (on the second try), but when I try to boot up from that CD, rEFIt refuses because of a "legacy" problem. I assumed it would be a live CD, from which I could do the installation; am I wrong, is there another way to install from it? My MacBook Pro 5,3 is the one exception to having its own installation page.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Drivers For Unity On MacBook

Jan 10, 2011

I have maverick currently installed on my MacBook 2,1 (mid-2007 model) and I decided to get myself an iso of the natty alpha 1 to run in a VM. When I booted into it, it said I couldn't run unity because I didn't have the required drivers. I kinda expected that (it's a pretty old computer, though it runs fast), but I'd like to know where I could maybe get a supported driver for this model of Macbook.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Sound Not Working With NVidia ION Drivers

Jun 4, 2010

I have a zotac IONITX motherboard with HDMI video. The video seems fine, but I haven't been able to get the sound working through the HDMI cable. Even the little speaker at the top is gone. It was working fine when I had speakers hooked to the motherboard. I have installed the latest 256 driver from nvidia. If I run 'aplay -l' I get this:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]
Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
lspci -v gives :
00:08.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP79 High Definition Audio (rev b1) Subsystem: PC Partner Limited Device 437b

Memory at fae78000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel
Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

I don't know if this is important, but I noticed that it says its running an intel driver for my nvidia sound. Could this be the problem and if so, How do I fix it? Also, if I click on system->preferences->sound it comes up with a dialog box that says that its waiting for the sound system to come up. Why I am not getting any HDMI sound or even the little speaker icon at the top?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Lucid Upgrade Broken LIRC (MacBook Remote)

May 4, 2010

After upgrading to lucid, the remote that accompanied my macbook 4.1 appears to do nothing. (Testing with irw and xev). The howto at [URL] avoids any reference to the remote. I had it working properly in karmic. The howto at [URL] fails to help -- and is pretty much what I'd successfully done under kamic. The following launchpad post accurately describes my experience: [URL]. Has anyone resolved, found a workaround for, or otherwise had success getting lirc to work on a macbook with lucid?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Karmic Running Smoothly On Imac 7,1 Aluminum 20" Sound Wifi Wlan Video Working Fully

I have Karmic Koala 9.10 working (near) perfectly on my iMac7,1, as identified by


NOTE: See below for Lucid 10.04 update to these instructions

IMPORTANT: You need to complete the installation procedure while connected to internet via the WIRED network. Then you can enable the wireless by installing the restricted drivers, after the install is complete. Also the fglrx ATI Video driver is effortlessly installed via Menu > System > Administration > Hardware Drivers

The sound card gave me some trouble, as it is an Intel HDA Model, reported as 'Codec: Realtek ALC889A' by


It shows up in lspci as:


It sounded rather tinny at first, when I tried mbp3 and other model names. Then I added the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf :


After reboot, my sound is full and can be put much louder than before. Jack detection works. Some people might have to leave out the power saving options. See below.

dmesg reports:


Sources consulted are mostly the kernel documentation ( Enter into the terminal: sudo apt-get install linux-doc

The relevant info can be found in HD-Audio-Models.txt.gz and HD-Audio.txt.gz in /usr/share/doc/linux-doc/sound/alsa )

When I installed I noticed no sound was emanating from my computer and a red light coming out the headphone jack. s there any reason why there wouldn't be any working sound?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Macbook 5,1 - Failed To Initialize The Nvidia Kernel Module?

Jun 12, 2010

This problem has bothered me in both my previous install of 10.04 and my current one. Intermittently, booting into ubuntu results in ubuntu running in low-graphics mode, informing me that the Nvidia kernel module has failed to initialize.Running nvidia-xconfig does not help. Removing and then reinstalling the nvidia driver in Hardware drivers does not help. I experience the issue with both the 173 and current drivers.I love ubuntu, but this is making me seriously consider exploring other distros. Perhaps this not a bad thing - after I return from this exploration,

Ubuntu / Apple :: No Sound In Macbook White 7, 1

Dec 4, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.10 in my macbook white 7,1 and as always I am impressed with the support of most of the hardware. Almost everything works, but the sound and the brightness control do not. The sound one is the one that I am more concerned about. I tried to solve it using the documentation for MacBook Pro 7,1 Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) but the solution did not work.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Got Stereo Sound On MacBook Pro 8,3

May 19, 2011

I have a MacBook Pro 8,3 w/ Natty installed on it and noticed on the wiki [URL]... it says sound only comes out of the right speaker. I just want to share that I got stereo sound on my machine by adding `options snd-hda-intel model=mbp55' to the end of `/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf' and rebooting. I didn't see a solution anywhere else. I haven't done extensive testing, I just know that now I have sound coming out both speakers (and headphone speakers) at balanced volume levels.

Ubuntu / Apple :: No Sound On Macbook Pro 17"?

May 22, 2011

I have no sound on my macbook pro 17", intel core. I have searched and searched and have not found a solution. I have never yet had sound since I installed ubuntu. I am using 11.04 now.So far, I have edited the document /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and added this line:options snd-hda-intel model=mbp55, which did nothing.Also ALSAmixer has all the channels turned up all the way except for S/PDIFI don't think it is a hardware problem because when I play an MP3 file in VLC, in the visualization that would normally show the ups and downs of the sound playback, I get a flat line (not sure if that makes sense).

Ubuntu / Apple :: Can't Configure Sound On MacBook 5,2 In 9.10 64bit

Jan 2, 2010

I manged to have it working fine in Ubuntu 9.04 but the sound settings in gnome have changed too much and I can no longer reconfigure the sound system to work as before. For now I can only hear music through the internal speaker(s) while previously with 9.04 I was able to use the built-in audio jack and use my external speakers. What was even better was that I was able to toggle the between the built-in speakers and the external speakers by plugin/unplugin the speakers jack. Today all of this nice features are gone. What's the proper way for configuring sound with pulseaudio? Should I disable pulseaudio?

Ubuntu / Apple :: 10.10 - One Of The Left Speaker On Macbook 2.1 Has No Sound

One of the left speaker on my macbook 2,1 has no sound. The channel is not muted in alsamixer. If you go into sound preferences and change the card to a surround 4.0. The both the front and rear right speakers work. Front is higher sound (tweeter) rear is the lower sounds. (mid-sub) however on the left side the left front does nothing. to the naked ear you can tell not as much sound is coming out of the left side. one speaker is not functioning. is there a fix for this?

Ubuntu / Apple :: External Screen On Macbook Pro - Automatically Detect When Connect A Monitor Instead Of Going To The Nvidia Settings?

Oct 16, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Macbook Pro 5,5. Everything is running fine with some tweaks. Just one thing bothers me: when I tell Nvidia X Server Settings that I want to use my external screen as primary screen it doesn't put the gnome panels to the other screen, well... sometimes it does after a couple times but most of the time it doesn't.is there a way to automatically detect when I connect a monitor instead of going to the Nvidia settings? Just the way Mac OS X does?

Ubuntu / Apple :: ISight Not Working On Macbook 4,1 And 11.04?

Jul 29, 2011

Although I had 11.04 running smoothly on my Macbook 4,1 (OS X 10.5) since it came out, I never bothered to actually test the iSight camera. So I fired up Cheese, but it claimed that it could not detect any webcam installed. gstreamer-properties does not list iSight either.I followed this article step by step: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ma...am/AppleiSight. After installing the firmware I pulled from my OS X partition, neither Cheese nor gstreamer picked up on my camera. As a matter of fact, I investigated further and realized that /dev/video0 does not even exist.The firmware seems to be recognized by the kernel, according to dmesg:Quote:

usbcore: registered new interface driver isight_firmwareI repeated the procedure in the article again after purging the firmware-tools package, but no dice. I resorted to booting back into OS X to use my webcam, but as you can imagine this is not very convenient heh.Does anyone have any advice as to where to go from here?EDIT: I ended up uninstalling the firmwire, since it caused my Macbook to become unresponsive (purple screen of death?) every time after coming out of sleep. I haven't found a solution for that either. For now I guess I'll keep my OS X on a partition to use iSight until something comes up to resolve this issue.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVidia Drivers For Lucid?

Do you think if I do an upgrade from 9.1 to 10.04 and then add i915.modeset=0 ( works with the live CD) to the boot sequence and then load the proprietary NVidia drivers from sys/admin/hardware drivers, that I'll get full screen resolution.
BTW if I don't use the modeset=0 I get a blank screen after update reboot.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia 256 Drivers And Lucid 10.04 Theme

OK, I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and since upgrading to the 256.35 drivers from the ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates ppa the ambiance and radiance themes have gone funny. For example the scroll bars and buttons are now very white and when hovering over the time it goes a very bright colour. If I return to the 195 drivers the problem goes, but the 256 drivers have better video vdpau performance. The problem occurs regardless of whether compiz is enabled. The login screen is also affected. My gfx card is an 8600m gs.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Latest NVidia Proprietary Drivers On 64 Bit Lucid 10.04

Jan 12, 2011

Thought I'd put this together based on what I just did as it's hard to find a place where you get complete info in one place for this topic.

Not taking any credit as it's just piecing together stuff found on the net.

Of course this is for my specific hardware and system so YMMV:
- Palit Sonic GT 240 card
- Lucid 10.04.1 64-bit
- Intel DG33FB board and E7200 CPU
- LG monitor L194WT at 1440x900 res

Reason for choosing the latest NVidia drivers instead of the ones available from the System > Administration > Hardware Drivers option is that the latest ones contain specific fixes for my card, that are not available in the others.


All of the following is based on a freshly installed 64-bit Lucid 10.04.1 system. Some actions may need modification if you have already been tinkering with Nvidia drivers.

1. Backup your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file if any. The default clean install of 64-bit Lucid 10.04.1 doesn't create this file so unless you have generated and modified the xorg.conf file for your specific needs, skip this.

2. Install the following packages


If this doesn't work, run


And paste the output of that in the command above so you get, say


3. Remove the following packages using Synaptic's 'Completely Remove' option
- nvidia-173-modaliases
- nvidia-96-modaliases
- nvidia-current-modaliases
- nvidia-common

4. Create a new text file disable-nouveau.conf in the directory /etc/modprobe.d/ with the following contents


5. Download the latest NVidia drivers applicable to your card from here:[url]

6. Save the downloaded file (e.g. NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.29.run in my case) to an easily accessible location like your home folder. Make this file executable by running, say


7. Check that the driver was correctly downloaded.


8. Run Update Manager, Check for updates and Apply any found


1. Restart and choose the recovery option from the Grub options list.

2. Choose the Root Shell option in the list of options presented subsequently.

3. At the root shell run the following


If you skip this, the driver installer will inform you of the need to do this.

4. This will present you with a login prompt. Login with your admin username and password.

5. Navigate to the folder where the driver installer is present and run it, like


6. Accept the license text.

7. Say Yes to installing the 32-bit Open GL drivers.

8. I think you need to say Yes/ Accept once more time to initiate the driver installation.

9. Once the driver is installed it will ask you whether it should configure xorg.conf for you, say Yes. This will create the xorg.conf file if not present in your system and modify an existing one if present.

10. Back at the prompt, shutdown the system


11. Restart and use the normal startup option in the Grub options list, if all goes well you should see your beautiful desktop.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Sound Stopped Working, IEC958 Light Turns On Instead Of Sound Playing?

Jan 30, 2011

The sound stopped working on my Macbook Pro 1,1. It was working fine before, and I can't think of any changes I made that would make it stop working. I know it's not a hardware problem because the Apple sound plays when I turn on the computer. Everything is unmuted in ALSA Mixer. None of the hardware options in Sound Preferences produce sound. Plugging in headphones or speakers does not solve the problem. I'm using 10.10.One curiosity: Whenever I do something that would normally cause sound to play, the optical audio red light in the headphone jack turns on, but no sound plays.

Debian Hardware :: Drivers For NVidia GT240 Video And DWA 525 WiFi?

Nov 3, 2010

I have background in ArchLinux though, and have successfully installed, configured and used it on one workstation and two laptops. owever, i just got a new PC and spent several days trying to get Arch to run on it. Finally, i decided that i don't want to spend my time on this anymore and thought that maybe it's a sign i should try other distros (even though theoretically Linux is Linux is Linux), and Debian has always been appealing to me.

So my question is, has anybody had any experience (or issues) running Debian on the hardware mentioned above? I'm actually contemplating Ubuntu already, because there's a chance it will spare me some time and configure everything by itself, but the pride of a person who used to configure Linux from scratch doesn't let me switch to Ubuntu yet
