If I had to guess I would say you need to install the closed source video drivers. Type : Additional Drivers in the Dash.

I had to turn secure boot off before an Asus X200 would boot from USB. Things worked normally after that. The secure boot option is in the UEFI settings (BIOS), so if your machine is not a UEFI machine, it does not even exist.

Many new computers see a USB flash drive as just another hard drive. Can you set your flash drive as first hard drive in BIOS?

I have the same, first tried with an active HP DP->DVI, and with a direct cable. Both don't work out of the box. You can force a connection like this: xrandr --addmode DP1 1280x1024 xrandr --output DP1 --mode 1280x1024 --right-of HDMI1

Yours should work with echo "options asus_nb_wmi wapf=4" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/asus_nm_wmi.conf Then you should be able to reboot and use your keyboard to enable wifi if it is still blocked This should be fixed eventually as the code is in the asus_nb_wmi module in linux-next .callback = dmi_matched, .ident = "ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. X550CC", ...

I had the exact same problem. I was using a passive DP to HDMI adapter which worked with Chrome but not Ubuntu or Arch. Switched to an active adapter and it came right up.

for the Atheros card you can deactivate the hardware encryption of the driver. This will not affect the software encryption, like WPA2, etc: echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf sudo modprobe -rfv ath9k sudo modprobe -v ath9k

I am currently running ubuntu 14.10 on a ASUS G751. So far most things work. You need a new NVIDIA driver that supports the GPU, look here: How to use NVIDIA GTX 970 GPU?

Update: This will make the "video" button and the "rog" button next to the keypad also launch steam. Will look into that when I have the time. This is how I made the "Steam button" work on my ASUS ROG G751. I would not be surprised if there is a simpler way to do this :) I am using xbindkeys to bind the steam key to a script. The script will start steam if ...

It seems you have not downloaded the correct package. What you have is a folder called crouton and what you need is a script-file named crouton. You should change the name of the existing crouton folder or move it to a diferent directory before going further as you won't be able to have two items named crouton in the same ~/Downloads folder. After you have ...

Your manufacturers CD typically won't have drivers for Linux (Ubuntu or any other distribution for that matter) Don't worry about that. As Rinzwind points out the kernel supplies support for the main-board components (in most cases). I've never needed specific drivers for any main-board I've purchased whether it by Asus or Gigabyte or ?????? You can update ...

In Ubuntu you don't need to install 'separate' drivers from manufacturer CDs. Most drivers are already built in the system. Those discs you are mentioning probably designed for Windows and provide some necessary or additional features for the motherboard to work under Windows. But in Ubuntu these features are usually provided by default. So may not bother ...

SSD in Asus s400ca used to cache frequently used blocks on main HDD. Despite on it, it is not so easy to install Ubuntu due to UEFI on this machine. So, the easiest way for study purposes is install Ubuntu inside of VirtualBox under Windows.

When searching Z97 Topic: From what I have gathered from others posts and answers. (And referenced Bugs links in those posts.) There is a kernel fix being implemented in 14.10 (But not retroactively in 14.04.1 LTS ? ..Well, I hope the kernel fix is implemented there also, so that users don't have to sacrifice LTS just to have it.) In the meantime. I think ...
