I tried to install the beta version of maverick with no luck. I used usb creator to put maverick on a memory stick. When I went into live mode everything worked perfectly so I thought why not install it. I then tried to do this but after filling out all the required info it wouldn't install. I clicked the install button and the installer froze up. I currently have ubuntu netbook remix (9.04) installed on it in desktop mode. I also, awhile ago, try installing lucid (both desktop and netbook remixes) and had a similar problem with them. They both stalled installing at the 15% mark. Now with this problem with maverick I am wondering why this could be happening. I have used different memory sticks so I have ruled that out as a problem. They all have worked flawlessly and speedily in live mode.
i tried to install ubuntu 9.10 in my acer aspire lap. i got the ubuntu CD by parcel.i was able to select the language, then second option -install ubuntu also went rite, after that nothing is happening. how can i correct it?
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.
The problem now is that I cant get online. I have an Acer Aspire 5720. My network card is called Broadcom BCM4311 802.11b / g WLAN. What do I do? I've googled around and found various forum posts where I'm told that I must write various things in Terminal, which have not yet worked. I have also visited this site, where this is the first step: Open System â†’ Administration â†’ Networking. But the problem is that I can not find the "Networking" under "Administration". I have no experience with Linux what so ever, Ninja-edit: I tried reading through this, but I fell off at Make the .ko file
For long I've had problems with a slow Windows Xp-laptop, so today I decided to install Ubuntu on it.The problem now is that I cant get online. I have an Acer Aspire 5720.

I have just installed Meerkat on an Acer Aspire laptop, it can see various wireless networks but for some reason can't connect to them. However when I turn my HTC Desire into a hotspot it connects to that fine. Why can it connect to my phone yet not any routers?
My Acer AspireOne netbook has a native resolution of 1024x600. Most times I start up, the image is 800x480 against the left edge, black bar on the right side, and a repeated image at the bottom. (I can attach a picture if needed.)I've been seeing this problem since Ubuntu 9.10, but it's more common recently with 10.10. If I keep shutting down and powering back on, eventually it will come up in 1024x600 as I desire. If that happens, then I avoid shutting down and only use Suspend instead. However, anytime I need to reboot (for updates, etc.) the 800x480 comes back.
The Acer logo / BIOS splash screen is also in 800x480, but I only see it switch back to 1024x600 after Ubuntu loads and is shut down. (Repeatedly clicking on/off/on/off never results in the resolution changing to 1024x600.) So, I'm still suspicious that Ubuntu is causing this (no hardware). WinXP used to be on this machine, and the problem was never seen.I don't think any proprietary drivers are needed (but I am still a Ubuntu noob.) When the problem is occurring, I see this result for xrandr:
Code: swope@netbook:~$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 800 x 480, maximum 4096 x 4096 VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)[code]....
I haven't been able to find xorg.conf ... but I've read that recent versions of Ubuntu create the content dynamically.Not sure what other details I should be including, at the risk of making this post too long.
I have an Acer Aspire One with Linux operating system.Using Easy Peasy.No optical drive of course, but have bought an external one.The AA One recognises it and I want it primarily to install a program which is on CD. Familiar with Windows but a novice with Linux.
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.4 as a dual boot on my Acer Aspire 0ne 533. I have to keep the Windows partition for work, or I'd have just installed Ubuntu. I'm used to plugging in an ethernet cable for the first round of updates until I get the WiFi working, but it just isn't working for me this time. I have a horrid feeling that Windows has a way of hogging the Ethernet card.
I had a look in the forums, and could not find anything referring to this specifically, which is unusual because as far as I can tell the AA1 is a popular machine and lots of people dual boot it. Perhaps it is an easy fix that's been buried in the archives?
I've got an Acer Aspire AM3920 (Intel Core i5) Desktop PC. I want to upgrade my Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat to Natty Narwhal, but it just isn't working. I've tried to upgrade two times, both resulting in a crash while installing. When I try to install it from a Live CD, I'm getting a black screen and when I press a key in the purple screen of the Live CD and select nomodeset, it doesn't work either. So my question is: Is it possible to install/run Ubuntu 11.04 on this PC?
I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an acer aspire 5715Z and now I have overheating problems. Originally Vista was installed on the laptop and no overheating problem was observed. I think fans are not working now, cause I never hear them.
I recently installed Ubunto 10.10 (the netbook version) onto my Acer Aspire One Netbook. The OS it came with was a very old Red Hat, so I got rid of it. I am a complete Linux newbie, and not having the best experiences so far. Basically, the netbook is completely clean with Ubuntu just installed. It's not got any files on it or any extra software. But it runs REALLY slow.
Boots up pretty quickly, but it takes ages to do anything. It'll either just run ridiculously slowly, or it will run okay for 10 seconds and then not do ANYTHING for the next 10. I have never been able to play an MP3 track without the whole thing freezing, let alone a video.Why is it so bad? The machine's not that old (maybe a year and a half) and the OS is brand new. There's no files or added software on it. What's the problem? Is there anything I can do? It's so frustrating! And it's the the only computer I've got at the moment.
Neither from update manager or live usb pendrive. Can I make liveusb of lucid & delete maverick partition & reinstall? is mbrfix better? I have an ubuntu partion & an xp partition. install from update manager just hangs with orange screen after login. pendrive boot hangs with black screen with syslinux line.
now the thing is im bit of a dumb girl when it comes to computers. Apparently I need to install some Java software just to get my pictures on my facebook. I have tried following the instructions at Java but i am a total newbie lol
I was hoping some of the boys here could help me , I did try look at some other threads but I just get even more confused. Please dont be mad if this is a dumb question coz some of us are not as smart as you guys here. I am also looking forward to making new friends here if you on facebook xx xx lol
Maybe they made a change without changing the model number? I have an Acer aspire 5517 bought last Friday, and with Ubuntu 9.10 the wired network came up fine, I upgraded with latest fixes today, but it stil doesn't recognise the wireless interface at all, not "network connections" window, not "ifconfig -a".
Ubuntu works great had to fix my wireless but I got it working how ever I can't seem to get an indicator on how much battery life I have left. I checked into the sys>pref>pwr mng but all I see is On AC Power and General.
I was using Ubuntu 10.04 for the last 6 months, recently I have upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10, it worked fine for around four days, Now the problem is When I power up the system using power button, the system do not power up, I tried to boot from cd both Ubuntu and Windows XP, none works, I tried to go to BIOS setup using F2 and F12 (Acer Aspire 5920 model laptop), but i could not, just a blank display appears, here are some symptoms:
1. When powered on - LED indicating pocressor operation glows for a moment and disappears, few other LEDS indicating batter, music play, forward,stop LEDs glows as as usual,
2. Only blank screen appears
3. tried to switch on the wifi and bluetooth buttons, both did not glow indicating it is not working.
4. Paculiar thing is this symptons appears first time, suddenly all stop glowing and after 2 to 3 seconds again the system comes to this state and remains forever.
1. Is it possible to be hardware problem? 2. If it a software problem the suspect can be Ubuntu 10.10 version?
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.
after finally getting this machine tot run with ubuntu i am now on an ethernet connection because all of a sudden, my wireless says its disabled. When iwconfig is entered, it shows my wlan 0 but says power management : off. It is so frustrating because I feel like there should just be a button that says to switch it on haha. Please help, my wifi was working, and after a boot it is no longer.
I just installed ubuntu desktop version 10.10 on the laptop..it uses an ATI MOBILITY RADEON X700 everything worked fine except the monitor does not work properly after closing the lid/ suspend..... when it wake up from suspend, the monitor looks like as if it is broken
I have been attempting to install Ubuntu 10.10 on my Acer Aspire One for a few days now. Its current OS is Win7 Starter, if that even matters.
-I made a USB drive and Ubuntu boots and runs just fine.
-I hit the "install Ubuntu" icon and it has me choose my language, then I hit forward.
-It asks if I want to install updates and/or third party apps, I check the boxes and hit forward - and then it just sits there with the cursor spinning like its trying to do something, but it never does. The longest I have let it sit there was four hours, and still nothing happened.
**This is the step it always stops on. Could the problem be that I am trying to install the desktop version instead of the netbook version? I tried the netbook version and I just don't like it as much.
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.
I searched everything before posting this, and tried every solution, but so far no luck, i will post my info, and hope someone smarter then me can solve this? Wireless works fine in windows, but apears disabled in ubuntu lspci -nn
Code: 00:00.0 Host bridge : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS880 Host Bridge [1022:9601] 00:02.0 PCI bridge : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS780 PCI to PCI bridge (ext gfx port 0) [1022:9603] 00:04.0 PCI bridge : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS780 PCI to PCI bridge (PCIE port 0) [1022:9604] 00:05.0 PCI bridge : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS780 PCI to PCI bridge (PCIE port 1) [1022:9605] 00:11.0 SATA controller : ATI Technologies Inc SB7x0/SB8x0/SB9x0 SATA Controller [AHCI mode] [1002:4391]
the laptop has no bluetooth chip, so i am not sure where "acer-bluetooth" is coming from. Also i am quite familar with linux, so no need to hold my hand, i am just not sure what to do next in this situation. (if this makes solving this easier)
PS: There is no 'hardware switch' on the laptop, but there is a Fn+F3 key combination which does nothing. network-manager shows on startup 'Enable wireless' with no check next to it, checking it 'Enables' it, but the wireless remains disabled.
I'm working through this issue with my Acer Aspire 5336-2524. Blank screen, can't see anything after reboot.
(Display=Mobile Intel (R) 4 series express chipset family)
Enter;'msinfo32.exe' in the search programs and files box. Open it up after search finds it. You'll then be able to see BIOS version. Go to Acer support and update BIOS if needed. I needed to and so far the result has been that I'm not able to see the install of Ubuntu, butttt,cannot see it after going through all the start up, up to the point where the desktop page should be, then blank screen again.
I'll come back with results.I also am thinking about updating video driver too. (Tried but said it was up to date)Additional (6-14-11@7:36PM) So far by updating BIOS I was able to view ubuntu long enough to install, but couldn't view fully loaded OS (as in couldn't see desktop). As mentioned by foresthill, plugging an external monitor into the laptop allows me to see everything on the external monitor. Ahhh, sweet progress! Waiting for reply from foresthill about exactly what they did in grub for a permanent fix.Additional Two: FYI: Xubuntu 10.10 runs great on the laptop. But no wifi (I cannot remember if I updated and ran across broadcom driver install as 10.04.2 did)
Finial Update: I Installed ubuntu 10.04.2, which had no problems with screen, couldn't use wireless until I update and then a note poped up about broadcom driver which I allowed to install, now I have a fully functional ubuntu. Someone recommended using "LTS" versions for initial install, then go from there if you want to try different versions. I'll wait for the LTS before messing around, just glad to finally get a fully functioning ubuntu!
Had the laptop for about a year, when in Windows it never happens, but seems to happen frequently in Xubuntu 11.04. I've looked almost everywhere for increasing the fan speeds, because it never kicks into high gear, just a steady pace for idle use. lm-sensors doesn't show fan speeds, just the temps of the CPU.
As far as this thread goes, I've already got the latest kernel.
Fan is clear of dust, and it runs at an average temperature until the GPU is needed code...
