  1. [ubuntu] Re: Acer Aspire One/Atheros AR9285 drops wireless connection since upgrade of v9.10

    This fixed my wireless immediately. I tried it yesterday on my new AOD250-1613. No more dropped connections, and about 20% better reception.
    -- immediately after a reboot, that is.
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Internet is failing to work, yet it is being detected.

    Do I understand correctly that you are able to connect to your network, but firefox (or any browser) won't load any pages? If so, I am having this same problem as of today. I am also unable to...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Power Management causing system locks/haults

    Setting my visual effects to "normal" solved this problem for me. The Power Manager has been buggy in intrepid all around. Recent updates seem to have improved matters on my machines, though.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Power Management causing system locks/haults

    Do you have compiz turned on? Check your visual effects setting under System> Preferences> Appearance. This was happening on my aspire one until I set my visual effects to Normal. The box...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Sony Vaio motion eye webcam Ricoh in Intrepid?

    Ok, so thanks to p.i.m.p. I got my webcam working (though "sudo camera_load.bash" isn't doing the trick. I just run ./loader and the modprobes), but my mic is still defunct. Anyone with success...

    Re: Intrepid on a Acer Aspire One

    Might this fix also work with the ath5k driver? I'm reluctant to switch drivers yet again.

    EDIT: This fix does in fact work with the ath5k driver. I have my wireless connecting consistently...

    Re: Intrepid on a Acer Aspire One

    I'm afraid I can't say the madwifi was any better. The madwifi produced exactly the same result as the ath5k, with sketchy connections, and no connection after a suspend. I'm now considering trying...

    I'm having some of the same issues with my wireless now (this started happening only recently) that some have outlined in this thread. I have tried both the ath5k driver and madwifi, but both fail...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Sony Vaio motion eye webcam Ricoh in Intrepid?

    So I downloaded the zip file, extracted it to my home folder, and executed the make command in the directory. I'm pretty sure it was a failure. This was my output:

  10. [SOLVED] Re: Sony Vaio motion eye webcam Ricoh in Intrepid?

    Re: Intrepid on a Acer Aspire One

    Just a quick tip for those struggling with wireless drivers on the AAO:

    All I had to do to get my wireless working well was install linux-backports-modules-intrepid BEFORE updating right after...

  13. Re: [SOLVED] Is there such a thing as a Female Linux User?

    Seriously?

    The short answer: yes.

    The unabridged version: I'm a woman (or female, as you put it), and honestly it never occurred to me that Linux distros would be more appealing to men than...

    I tried this command on my Vaio, and it worked great... about three times. Since then I get a black screen with flashing cursor.
  15. [ubuntu] a little help with Xawtv configuration?

    Xawtv is the only program that will recognize the integrated webcam on my vaio-cr. I can see myself, and snap photos, but haven't been successful in recording any video so far. I don't know how to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Laptop suspending when A/C removed

    This has happened to me a few times with my aspire one, as well. Unfortunately, I haven't found a solution, but I don't find it to be such annoyance. It snaps back pretty quickly.
