Ubuntu :: Desktop Edition On An Asus Eee 1005ha Netbook?
May 3, 2010
I am running Lucid Lynx, Desktop Edition on an asus eee 1005ha netbook. i've noticed a strange issue. there are two accounts i've setup, one admin and one normal user. when i click on logout and login as admin and then boot into the admin desktop and then click on logout again, i get a blank screen and nothing happens. i have to remove the battery and restart the system to get it running again.
I have, in vain, tried to run or install Ubuntu Netbook Edition on an Asus Eeepc 1001PX.I have downloaded ubuntu-10.10-netbook-i386.iso and checked its md5sum, set up the installation media to both an USB-stick and a SD memory card using Universal-USB-Installer-184.108.40.206.exe and the Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator.The Asus already has an Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop which was easily installed using the same procedure.
I have problems installing Ubuntu Netbook Edition (ubuntu-10.10-netbook-i386.iso)on Asus eeepc 1001PX. code...
I have tried both Universal-USB-Installer-220.127.116.11.exe and the Ubuntu start up disk creator to prepare my USB-stick. I have earlier installed the Ubuntu desktop 10.10 on the same machine with the same method without problems.
I have been setting up a box now and have it configured with everything I need and is running great.I would like to test out the netbook remix edition is there a way to install the desktop environment along site with Gnome (like I use to do with KDE)Would be great so I wouldn't have to re-configure drivers and such.To be able to switch from Gnome environment to Netbook remix environment.I am running Ubuntu 10.04.
I have just purchased an Asus EeePC 1001HA netbook and I would like to install Ubuntu Netbook Edition 9.10 (love the look and the brilliant interface), but I can't get the wireless network to work. I am currently running from a 4Gb USB stick that has the LiveCD on it with a 1Gb persistence. The network notification area only shows wired and VPN connections. I have tried installing the Ralink 3090 driver but I have had no luck in getting the wireless to work.
When in kubuntu netbook edition 10.04 I select an activity as Desktop, the plasma button dissapears, also I can't add items or lock the desktop widgets. I can drop folders and create icons. Can make them smaller but when I do it I can't make them bigger again!
I have ubuntu netbook remix on my netbook and how Do I wondering how to get the built mic working. I am wondering how to get the built mic workin. My camera works perfectly but not the mic. When I make vids on ....., there is no sound!
I just downloaded Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 and am running it from a usb flash drive on my Acer laptop. At times I'd like to use the Gnome desktop. I know with the previous version there was a way to change to Gnome. Is there still a way to change to Gnome on the 10.04 version and if so how do I change to Gnome and back to Netbook Edition desktop?
I can't get my Asus Eeepc 1005HA to boot from usb so as to re install Ubuntu. I did it right once - obviously - and now have a malfunctioning dual boot partition. My memory is of having to hit a function key repeatedly once I'd changed the BIOS and restarted the computer. Asus forums all repeatedly give me the same advice - F2 for BIOS, F10 to save settings then it should boot up, but --- nothing --- works.
So. Any additional or creative advice? The computer doesn't have a CD drive. My thumb drive is a Delkin 4gig... are there thumb drives known to work for this operation?
I have already installed Ubuntu from an USB drive, however everytime I have to install it on a desktop/laptop or netbook, I have to "burn" the USB again, so I wonder if there is any way to have both (Ubuntu desktop and Netbook Edition) on the same USB drive and choose wich one you want to install at the boot moment.
I usually have the ISO images and copy the files to the USB with the "Startup Disk Creator" utility built in Ubuntu or eventually with Universal USB Installer or UNetbootin...
Pinging out from my netbook (over wifi, to any host) gets ~0% packet loss. Pinging into it (from any host) gets about 50% packet loss.
The router is a Dlink-DIR615 (rev d, running DD-WRT v24-sp2) but all other hosts on it ping eachother fine. I've tried changing routing, disabling IPv6, using older kernels and using wicd, all with no luck. The wireless connections is at 100% most of the time. This could be a new problem with Maverick, but I may not have noticed it before. I believe this is causing web browsing to be really slow and causing SSH timeouts.
I haven't tried madwifi drivers or nsidwrapper yet.
Edit: just booted into Windows and it has the same problem. Could it be a hardware issue? Also tried with a static IP, with no change.
Strangely, a normal ping gets 50% packet loss, but ping -A gets < 1% loss.
Edit 2: no packet loss at all on eth0.

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.
Why i cant change from 800x480 to 1024x600, that this model of EEE pc doesnt support anything higher than 800x480 at the 10:1 ratio...
Firstly my question is, is it ACTUALLY possible to 'overclock' this type of netbook to run a higher res?
Im running ubtuntu netbook remix 10.04 and am new to linux (again, so sorry) so be nice, and ive tried getting my head around this 'sudo' stuff, and the xorg.conf file (which is nowhere to be found) and ive even tried a program calld astray but im pretty sure ive exhausted my patience as trying to self-teach . . .
And ive also tried to much around with xrandr or whatever that command was.. but i cant really get my head around it, and it kept telling me the resolution didnt exist ect...
I installed Ubuntu Netbook 10.04 and immediately noticed the keyboard of my eeepc 1000HE was abnormally warm. Since I dual boot XP I booted to XP and found the fan running faster to compensate for the previous heat. This did not happen on Ubuntu-the fan just was barely running. I had to place the side of the netbook in order to feel the fan running. I issued "sensors" in terminal and it showed 67 degrees C for the cpu temp. Is the latest Ubuntu such a resource hug that it heats up the CPU?
I would like to know if I could burn Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition with a CD-R & not use my flash-drive for install. Has anyone used a CD-R & Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition to install on a new hard drive? How come it ask you to use a flash drive & not a CD-R?
I have a netbook running Ubuntu Lucid. Is there a way to try out the netbook interface without actually changing the whole installation. I have a separate home but still would like to try it 1st. I tried as an install it a few versions back and hated it but it seems a lot improved with 10.04.
So, I was wondering if I can replace my 10.10 desktop edition with Netbook edition? I loved the interface of Netbook edition, so I want to get. If get it on my normal laptop, will there be any problems? Can I install, Apache or Nginx on it? What are the main differences between them?
am trying to install netbook edition on nb205. i get the error (process:316) : GLib-WARNING **: getpwuid_r(): failed due to unkown user id (0) I am installing the latest netbook edition off of ubuntu.com.
the title pretty much says it all, is there at this point in time (december 2010) still a place where I could download ubuntu netbook edition 10.04? I want to do that because I think it looks better and more importantly, it uses compiz.
I recently been given my dad's old netbook which is a toshiba nb100
I installed Ubuntu Netbook Edition onto it as i have some experiance with linux and have used ubuntu before and thought it would speed up this little machine. After the initial grind of the instal, it seemed to be running fine, however i didnt really like the netbook layout.
I noticed on the log in screen that i could select the desktop or netbook edition, is that normal? i have been using the desktop version since.
I have been doing some research however into the 11.04 release that is almost ready, and is ready in alpha stages. And what i understand is that the netbook layout is called Unity, and will be replacing gnome.
If and when i upgrade to 11.04, if i upgrade on the netbook login, will it replace both the logins i have access to currently, because the ubuntu install is changed and that was basically just choosing which display to use, unity or gnome. is that right?
Also i heard that for the 11.10 release they will be bringing the gnome desktop back? and that ubuntu netbook edition is being scrapped as they are basically merging
At the moment i prefer the desktop layout as i know where to access everything, although im sure i could get used to Unity, if its not too graphically demanding.
Either way i think i will wait till the end of april to upgrade to 11.04 as this laptop is fairly slow to begin with.
On the Ubuntu website, under the alternate downloads, there is a link for 11.04 netbook torrent download but clicking on the link gives an "unobtainable" message. On the "error" page, Chromium provided a link to the ubuntu page with all the 11.04 versions and checking through those there is not a netbook version.
Does this mean that there will be no netbook version of 11.04 and the desktop version will be OK on a netbook or is it simply that it is not available yet? I am intending to upgrade my current Acer Aspire One to 11.04 and am considering a clean install rather than upgrading via the update manager. I have downloaded the desktop version just in case.
How can I install Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 to a USB drive so I can run it on any computer. I want the full version of it on my USB drive not just the live CD version.I want to use Ubuntu on my school computers.Basically, I wanted a 100% portable UNE that saves all settings, data, programs, etc and is still as fast as possible for a USB.
