You need to boot with acpi_osi= kernel parameter. Do it this way. Run in terminal sudo -H gedit /etc/default/grub in the opened editor window edit the following line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to look this way GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=" Save the file and run in terminal sudo update-grub Reboot.

It certainly sounds like the battery is dead. If the laptop won't power on at all until the AC is plugged in I'd blame the battery.

Now I saw your post. You can write in terminal: echo 3 | sudo tee /sys/class/leds/asus::kbd_backlight/brightness Which will activate the maximum brightness of the backlights. It can take values from 0 to 3, so when you want to decrease it, you can just change the 3 with any other value within that interval. As a long term solution you could try making ...

Does previous command git clone https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes.git works ? If it does not, you are trying this in /usr/src and maybe your user does not have rights in /usr/src. You can try run command with sudo like sudo git clone https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes.git or first make git directory in your home directory and then run git ...

It seems common for brightness Fn keys to not work on Asus machines. On my Asus X205TA the brightness function keys don't work natively but I can use xbacklight as a workaround: sudo apt install xbacklight commands: get current brightness: xbacklight -get set brightness to 50% xbacklight -set 50 increase brightness by 10% xbacklight -inc 10 ...

The event sequence you described is: right hand finger drag, followed by right hand finger lift, followed by left hand finger touch and release (tap). When you click using yr particular method (w/ fingers from 2 hands on the pad), make sure to tap with yr left hand finger after releasing the right hand finger contact. That should help the kernel ...

Any version of Ubuntu will work. Although I would recommend 16.04 x64 LTS. Keep in mind you might experience difficulties with the Wi-Fi chip and/or the iGPU.

I suggest changing your power setting to "do nothing" at critical. This way an erroneous reading will not shut down your system. Alt-F2 and launch dconf-editor --you will need to install this if you don't already have it: sudo apt-get install dconf-editor Navigate to org > gnome > settings-daemon > plugins > power and change the critical-battery-action to ...

I've got the same notebook and as for me the 2d/3d acceleration is working out of the box with xubuntu 16.04. I've experienced a lot of lag with firefox, and visual glitches with chrome, but after an acceleration method change from SNA to UXA, chrome seems to be good. (SNA is default in this case, without a config file). Edit (or create) /etc/X11/xorg.conf ...

I had the same issue with an encrypted disk on a asus e200ha mint18. I was able to resolve it by updating to kernel 4.6.0-040600-generic and adding all the modules from lsmod to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and updating initramfs followed by updating grub. I started out with 157 modules being loaded by initramfs, I'm sure not all of them are needed to make ...

Here is a little short workaround (not offline) which was done for xubuntu, but is dealing with ubuntu-files with downloading them. Link to duplicate answer is : How do I install my wireless card driver offline

I had the same problem right after the installation. One needs to download and install the corresponding drivers from "Software Updates > additional drivers" making use of cable connection. I would also sudo apt-get update before and after.

Disclaimer: I struggled with this on Mint/Mate-18 with my Asus 305CA, and got it to work, I do not know if it works on Ubuntu as well, but try... I did this: Get Fn F5/F6 working: sudo emacs etc/default/grub Change the following: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=" sudo update-grub reboot the system... Now the splash screen should show ...

I have the same problem. This is a bug of the driver. It can be solved by disconnecting cable of front panel from soundcard. Or, you need to insert the headphones in the front panel input.

I recently installed Ubuntu 16.04 on a 701 with 1GB RAM. I used the mini iso installer, added Xfce, PostgreSQL, Midori, emacs, git-all, musescore, abiword, swi-prolog, a few other things. I tend to remove /usr/share/docs/* and /var/apt/cache/archives/* as I go since I either already know what the tools I need do, or I have docs on another system, and I don'...
