The best solution is reverting your kernel to the version 3.13.xx. I did it and now its working. You can install it from the software center and use it with advanced options from the grub startup page.

Thank you for your reply. I did update grub GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=", then ran update-grub, and rebooted. It had no effect. I added the file with the contents listed above, rebooted, and it had no effect. I wasn't sure have to do edev but I ran xev (ubuntu troubleshooting) and saw that the fn+F5 and fn+F6 keys do not register ...

Asus laptops are shipped with varios touchpads. At this moment it look like mostly they are Elantech and Focaltech. Elantech touchpads are fully supported in kernel 3.16. If you installed Ubuntu 14.04.2, it shoud be already there. Focaltech touchpads are supported from kernel 4.0, which is not in any Ubuntu release yet. It is looking like this is your case. ...

For your model 'acpi_osi=' should work. Don't forget to update-grub. Try to look if Fn+F5 and F6 generate evdev events. If you have Intel graphics, to get these buttons really working you will have to point xorg to intel_backlight. This can be done by adding a file 20-backlight.conf to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d with Section "Device" Identifier "card0" ...

I got Ubuntu to boot without much effort. Make a bootable usb stick of Ubuntu 14.10. Use Rufus(Windows) or Startup Disk Creator(Ubuntu). Copy this file (bootia32.efi) to /EFI/BOOT directory on the usb stick. Turn Secure Boot off in the BIOS. Boot from the usb stick. This should boot Ubuntu 14.10 without any other issues. For further info check this ...

I'm running Ubuntu 14.10 on my X205TA. Right now the major gripe for me is that audio doesn't work. I would recommend that you do get the laptop if you're okay with using Windows for a while. It is a really good laptop for the price. I followed instructions from the following pages ...

I've just got an Asus Vivobook S46CA (i7 / 6GB RAM / 20GB SSD / 1TB HDD), with Windows 8 pre-installed by factory. I've tried a bit to install the Ubuntu 14 as a dual boot with Windows 8. But I was not successful. So I have decided to remove Windows and install Ubuntu 14. Be aware that I'm a beginner in Linux world and my answer might be improved somehow by ...

Please refer to that document. 1TB HDD: . 200GB for /usr . 400GB for /home . 400GB for /DATA (personal media files) ...

Ubuntu doesn't have performance modes, as far as I've seen. The most probable reason of sluggishness is that your hardware isn't good enough to run Ubuntu 14.10 very well. That's why the website says 12.04 works fine. If you want to keep 14.10 on it, though, you can try installing the MATE (GNOME) desktop. In a terminal window, run sudo apt-get install ...

I finally came to this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1372609 It seems FocalTech touchpad needs a specific driver, and that work is in progress to integrate it into the mainline kernel. currently, there seem to be a ppa to get a dkms driver for this touchpad : http://ppa.launchpad.net/hanipouspilot/focaltech-dkms After ...

Your partitioning idea is good 18 GB for / , 2 GB for swap in SSD and 200 GB for /home. You can make a partition for user apps as much as you wish (say 100 GB) and mount it at /usr. This custom partition scheme can be done by choosing "Something else" in Installation Type

After all, i'm not the only one having these problems. I also had this problem in the boot that does not start without the usb device and ubuntu (and mint 17.1) does not turn off completely. Well I am not a pro but i already used Linux distros enough and had never had so much trouble until try to install linux on this asus. The best way I could find to let ...

I have tried this solution: Ubuntu 14.04 Asus G550JK SonicMaster External Subwoofer not working Both the pin one and the 2.1 one to no avail. The 2.1 Audio analog surround option indeed appears, but there is no sound coming out of the subwoofer. Overriding the pin makes no difference at all, but it might be due to previous steps. Using: Ubuntu Gnome 14.04 ...

This question is the only meaningful mention I can find about this usb.id 0b05:17eb. I am unable to find any Linux driver for the device. We might then consider ndiswrapper, the package that uses Windows XP driver files. I checked on the Asus site and they only offer Windows 7 and 8 driver packages. ndiswrapper will not work with 7 or 8 drivers. I regret ...

I decided to build a system. After a lot of research I bought the list of hardware below. In trying to decide which motherboard to select, I sent emails to ASUS and Gigabyte, both of whom took a long time to reply. Their replies were nothing more than a Google search with a hit listing Ubuntu and one of their mother boards in the article, both of which I ...

I'm using the same Wifi Adapter and got it to work as chili555 mentioned (could not comment yet). But on a default installation of Ubuntu there's a package missing which is mandatory. This is the DKMS package. So you need to install the DKMS package first before installing the driver package like Chilli555 explained. sudo apt-get install dkms Working on ...

UPDATE::A Couple things to try : Let me just make sure, you are Using the Great Britan (GB) Key-map on purpose, as opposed to the US english keyboard layout? What is your preferred language? In any event, I suspect your language settings are the cause. You could do $loadkeys en_us to load the usa English keymap, or $loadkeys gb if you want Great Britain ...

I have the same web cam on my notebook asus x551ma :) It is : ID 04f2:b404 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd As you can see, the 14.04LTS can have kernels 3.13, 3.16; By default if you don't upgrade its kernel certainly 14.04LTS has kernel 3.13; As a rule, to make web cam work you need the proper kernel's web cam module (the driver); A useful tip: To see ...
