I solved the problem by typing my password into a document, and then copying and pasting it into the password field. For some reason the connection was timing out before I could type my (long) password in but not giving me any messages about it.

I can help with this - I have the X205TA which is the same thing (honestly) This machine will only allow 32-bit UEFI booting. But, you have to use a 64-bit distro image (I know, I know) Secure boot must be turned off in BIOS as you did already. You need to edit your live USB. Inside will be a directory EFI and inside that a directory BOOT That directory ...

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 ...

I was experiencing exactly the same problem with my Zenbook UX305UA...until today. This was a very annoying problem since it only has mini-HDMI output. The external monitor/tv/projector was only working if the laptop was turned on with the cable already plugged, but was freezing if connecting the cable once the system was running. Only hard power off could ...

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 ...

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.

If I remember correctly, that machine uses a Celeron M processor that does not support Physical Address Extensions (PAE), so the error you were likely getting was something like, "This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU: pae." You will need a 32 bit distribution that supports non-pae processors, which is getting harder to find. ...

Since it just have 512MB ram. I would advise against running the regular Ubuntu - Unity, Gnome or KDE version. It would be better to use lightweight version like Lubuntu, Xubuntu and Ubuntu. Your eeePC has a 32 bit processor, so try installing 32-bit version of these distributions. The best choice would be Lubuntu 14.04.4 LTS. Download Here

Hi I did the easy work around method for my old Vaio and cheated by using the brightness panel indicator see No 10 here It gives a clickable brightness adjustment without having to go back to settings.

I still had problems with the brcm driver. Using Ubuntu 16.04. It required manual restarting of the driver module brcmfmac after login - otherwise the Network Manager would endlessly try to connect - ask for password - attempt to connect again - and so on, and on. So I added this to /etc/init.d/rc.local to automatically restart it after login: # BEGIN ...

Recommended RAM is 2GB...so I would suggest you stick to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for optimum performance...IMHO and from experience...for 32bit machines with 1GB RAM, Ubuntu 12.04 runs the smoothest...so if you don't have any particular needs...do not upgrade...

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.

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.

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 ...

Upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 and the touchpad should work OK with kernel 4.4. There is no supported way to install kernel 4.4 to Ubuntu 15.10. It can be installed only to 14.04, or 16.04.

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, ...

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).

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 ...

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

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 ...

Installing the latest nvidia drivers and restarting made it work in the end. I also removed acpi=off from my boot parameters.

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 ...

Found another solution that may work for you Edit your grub file: sudo gedit /etc/default/grub change the line line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video.use_native_backlight=1" then save and exit.

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 ...

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 ...

I carried out a fresh install of 16.04 on my ASUS GL552VW. The only GRUB parameters I entered (for installation and normal boot) were: nouveau.modeset=0 To stop Nouveau from taking over. Once I'd installed the nVidia drivers, I had to disable Secure Boot. With those settings, everything works. Touchpad, Skylake support, nVidia graphics @ 1920x1080, ...

I have exactly the same CPU and GPU and the same issue, I posted a similar question about this issue. From what I've read sky lake CPU's are not supported fully yet.

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 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, ...

The Asus Z87-A has a Nuvoton NCT6791D SuperIO chip to read temperatures and fan speeds and control the fans. Instructions on how to read and control the fan speeds are given here fan configuration of Z97-E under OpenSUSE. They are for OpenSUSE and the Z97-E motherboard but the process will be pretty much identical for the Z97-A under Ubuntu.
