Linpus (default installed on delivered system)
26-07-2008 Changes menu (Linpus)-Go to Files -> My Documents to open the File Manager. Then go to File -> Terminal. The Linpus Linus is using Xfce, so use xfce-setting-show to get the Xfce Settings Manager. Click on Desktop to get to the Desktop Preferencs and choose the Behavior tab. Now mark under Menus the Show desktop menu on right click option and close the window. This setting will allow you to bring up the normal desktop menu when you right click somewhere on the desktop. The Desktop Menu contains much more options than the limited user interface on the Aspire One. Under System you will find Add/Remove Software which is the Red Hat/Fedora Packet Manager. You will need your password (the one you set up during installation) to access it. Now you can go nuts and install programs. It's a pretty big selection and the files will be downloaded (you need internet access) and installed for you. If it¿s an application you usually find it later in the Desktop Menu. That should be enough for the average user. The advanced ones will just use the Terminal to access what they want.
keyboard setting (Linpus)From keyboard setup Under /etc/X11/ you find the xorg.conf file, if your default keyboard setting is wrong add some lines to set to your choice (root/administrator permissions needed) Section "ServerFlags" Option "DontZap" "yes" Option "DontVTSwitch" "yes" # these (2) are added : Option "XkbDisable" "yes" Option "DisableModInDev" "yes" EndSection Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Keyboard0" Driver "kbd" Option "CoreKeyboard" Option "XkbRules" "xorg" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "us" <-- your keyboard type Option "XkbVariant" "euro" EndSection 01-08-2008 Software update, new menu's, Linpus, Fedora package mix up Problem after software update Wlan disabled, no wlan icon in taskbar, no fix found. For using recovery cd data, usb stick > 1G is needed.
Debian03-08-2008 Installed Debian Etch Updated to Debian Lenny (testing) apt-get upgrade so more new hardware gets supported Kernel 2.6.25-2-686. 04-08-2008 Issues to solve: -Reading of SD cards -xserver for Intel chipset (now using vesa xserver) -Lan patch needed? -wlan update needed 04-08-2008 Updated to Debian Lenny (tesing) apt-get dist-upgrade for further package update Issues still to solve: -Reading of SD cards -Lan seems to be connected at boot time or will not work??? -For wlan, blacklist ath5k because otherwise ath_pci module will not work, also led is not switched on. In future, expectation is that ath5k or ath9? will replace ath_pci, see madwiffi site. lsusb -v output lspci -v output 20-08-2008 From https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AspireOne -WIRELESS LED: To get your awesome wireless led to blink for you based on traffic, put these lines in /etc/rc.local sysctl -w dev.wifi0.ledpin=3 (use -3 for solid light?) sysctl -w dev.wifi0.softled=1 The wifi kill switch uses these keycodes: /usr/bin/setkeycodes e055 159 /usr/bin/setkeycodes e056 158 -Cardreader The card reader is hidden for some reason, so you have to add "setpci -d 197b:2381 AE=47" to your rc.local script to unhide it on boot. A script to poll the card reader for card and power events (AC unplugged etc) is included on the recovery DVD shipped with the machine within the "hdc1._.tar.bz2" archive as /usr/sbin/jmb38x_d3e.sh. Storage expansion slot is working now (but must be removed at boot time otherwise 61s time out kernel), the Multi-in-1 card reader slot not working yet. -Wlan In Debian testing now the atl2-module is present (2.6.25-2 kernel). 21-08-2008 To Do Multi-in-1 card reader not working yet Storage expansion slot with SD card inside present at boot time. Testing Microfoon. Some patches to speed up SSD access (GNOME window manager is used) 24-08-2008 At this moment using ext3 /boot/grub/menu.lst: added after line with kernel elevator=noop fstab file add noatime to line (was defaults) /dev/sda1 / ext3 noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1 03-09-2008 CPU temperature sensor
