I am using these boot parameters to boot 16.04 on my GL552VW: i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 nouveau.modeset=0 acpi_osi=! acpi=0 acpi_backlight=vendor idle=nomwait My touchpad requires me to boot twice to get the pointer to display. I am trying to figure that out. Modify 10_linux in /etc/grub.d line 177 put in after ro and before ${arg} and then sudo ...

Ok, I think I found it. Edit your /etc/default/grub file: sudo nano /etc/default/grub Change the following line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to say this instead: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi_osi=! acpi_backlight=native idle=nomwait quiet splash" Press CTRL + o and then press ENTER to save the file. Press CTRL + x to exit nano. ...

I've got this device too. We need both of these files for WiFi to work: /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43340-sdio.bin /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43340-sdio.txt Step 1 Using Android firmware was the standard fix for our card (and still works), but now you can get the binary from the Linux firmware repository (and it's already in the installation with 16.04, so ...

Go for the version it is suppose to be able to hold. Intel Atom N450 is 64-bit so I would stick to a 64-bit and match the minimum specs for any of the Ubuntu flavours. lUbuntu and xUbuntu are options. Beyond that: do consider alternatives that are around but not Ubuntu; like Puppy Linux or Damn Small Linux. Regarding: What will perform better, 64-bit ...

According to your computer specification, you should use 32bit system. 64bit system can use more than 4GBs of RAM, but it's useless when you have only one. What is more, 32bit would be safer for this processor. Lubuntu is the most lightweight distribution (AFAIK), so this is also good for this computer.

This problem have been solved in kernel 4.4, You can install kernel 4.4 to Ubuntu 14.04 without upgrading to 16.04 by running in terminal sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-xenial Regarding "how stable is 4.4.6", it can't be answered as it will be based on opinions. For me everything is working fine, many of problems which i had in 3.6 are solved in ...

I know this will sound completely ridiculous but.... What I Tried Updating all the Linux Firmware drivers Tried to boot using a backup Kernel (4.2.x). Tried using two Mainline, upstream Kernels (4.6.x-wily and 4.4.10-Xenial). Tried blacklisting acer-wmi. Tried setting /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf to add options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1. Tried also adding ...

Often, the battery statistics come from a combination of the battery model info read by either the Bios or possibly the operating system and the measured duration of the battery. I don't believe the battery model info is read every time but the metering system will need a calibration run for it to properly guess at the duration time of the replacement ...

According to intel atom N450 supports 64bit but for performance reasons you should choose lubuntu 32 bit. Just keep in mind that some applications support only 64bit nowadays. One example is google chrome which has no 32 bit installer for linux anymore and if you use chromium you can't install flash player (you must find an older pepper flash from unofficial ...

Is the module asus_nb_wmi loaded? Check: lsmod | grep asus If so, please try a driver parameter: sudo -i echo "options asus_nb_wmi wapf=0" > /etc/modprobe.d/asus.conf exit Reboot and see if the Fn+F2 behavior is changed. If the above does not work, redo it again but replace asus_nb_wmi wapf=0 with asus_nb_wmi wapf=1, and if that does not work, ...

Overall it should run fine. I have an Asus UX303LA with quite similar specs and the things I had to tweak to make them work were the hotkeys for the display brightness and the keyboard back light (see this link for a workaround for the keyboard backlight issue if you experience it: http://askubuntu.com/a/701145/474849). The gestures on the touch pad might ...

According to the download page of Ubuntu, it will not perform really well with RAM under 2GB. There are other Ubuntu flavors out there that may suit your system here

I recently installed 16.04 on a ASUS UX303UA. Everything I have tried so far has worked, except for one small glitch, which is that sometimes the wifi doesn't come back on after suspend. I've fixed that by adding a little script to the power management directory which works all the time. I am just getting into configuring gestures. Right out of the box the ...

I have a UX303UA, which has a FocalTech touchpad, rather than the Elan your Zenbook has. I solved this problem by adding a conf file to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d called 52-focaltech.conf. You would probably want to call yours 52-elan.conf or such. The 52 at the start is important because that way it runs after the system-supplied conf files for the ...

I have been having the same issue, While not a fix, I found that restarting the network manager works. I have included the instructions to do this below. From the command line Stopping Network Manager sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager stop Starting Network Manager sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager start

I have not tried what Jon Delano posted above but... I tried installing the nvidia proprietary driver on a USB with a "save changes" partion so it would save my changes in the Live session, and after installing the Nvidia driver the computer now boots, and everything seems to two work expect the stuff highlighted by Jon Delano above :) I'm guessing the boot ...

Same issue here on Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW (same GPU and CPU, Ubuntu 16.04). After I changed "quiet splash" in grub to acpi_osi=! acpi_backlight=native idle=nomwait the fan stopped spinning like mad and integrated GPU seems to work. But now the system fails to shutdown normally and also hangs on executing glxinfo command. Actually I don't quite understand ...

For now, Linux won't run on the T100HA acceptably. Even with complicated hacks, a lot of important hardware (WiFi, sound...) is unsupported.

I was able to get 15.10 installed by doing this: Modify /etc/grub.d/10_linux so that any subsequent updates don't overwrite the grub.cfg file and thus your modifications. sudo -H gedit /etc/grub.d/10_linux Look for line 177. It should start with linux ${rel_dirname}/${basename}.efi.signed root=${linux_root_device_thisversion} After ro, ...

See: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2323500 It may be that your CD/DVD/BD player is plugged into the wrong connector. Check the manual for your motherboard. It's possible that you have your optical drive plugged into an ASMedia connector instead of a SATA connector. ASMedia only supports AHCI mode (data drives).

Than give it execution permission by running chmod +x install test uninstall Now to install it run ./install To test it without installing, run ./test To uninstall, run ./uninstall To install ...
