    Re: AcerHK GUI -- GUI for users of the 'acerhk' driver to control wireless/bluetooth

    v0.7.2

    Wow, I spent all evening trying to install the acerhk driver in order to get wireless to switch on on my friend's Medion MD96500 laptop, and when I finally came across the acerhk gui it really did the trick. I love how it downloads builds and installs the driver for me, it just works!

    Thanks for your hard work!

    Thank you very much for the feedback.

    Are you using Ubuntu 10.10? I have not tried 10.10 yet to verify if the software still functions as intended and which I know works under 10.04.

    Re: AcerHK GUI -- GUI for users of the 'acerhk' driver to control wireless/bluetooth

    All,

    I have begun a large rewrite of the application. I do not want to loose any functionality in the process; however, there will certainly be some issues that come up. I am also looking at soliciting feedback on the changes I am making.

    In short, the objective of this release is to shift the application to an AppIndicator Icon and incorporate Notify-OSD (ubuntu).

    I want to do the main posts/feedback on this on my Sourceforge page in the forums. Please go there for link. Post all feedback for the Alpha there, as I want to keep this forum for actual releases.

    Re: AcerHK GUI -- GUI Application Indicator Support

    All,

    I am currently writing the next version to provide for App Indicator support directly from the system tray. HOWEVER, I have a second project that gives basic functionality for AcerHK users (On/Off for Wifi/Bluetooth). The project is really to consolidate (multiplex) Display settings/links into one Indicator Icon menu [hence Displex]; however, I did add an AcerHK GUI control menu that will show if you have acerhk.ko installed in your system. If not, you won't see it.

    https://sourceforge.net/p/displex

    If you think you do, but it isn't showing, do install latest version of AcerHK GUI. That could fix the issue for you.

    Regards,
    Arick

    arm-c, thank you for your work on AcerHK GUI. I have been looking for a solution to turn on my bluetooth on my Acer AO532h. I'm going to download your deb now. Thanks!

    Re: AcerHK GUI -- GUI for users of the 'acerhk' driver to control wireless/bluetooth

    I installed acerhkgui on two Acer netbooks: AO532h and AO D255E. It installed successfully on both. No problem. But it does not activate bluetooth on either one. I don't see any error message, but the end result is that bluetooth doesn't turn on. Here's the output:

    Re: AcerHK GUI -- GUI for users of the 'acerhk' driver to control wireless/bluetooth

    Hey,

    Couple of questions after I let you know I don't have my Acer with me (finally died). There are differences between systems and depending on the year of your machine, AcerHK may not be the driver for your hardware. With that said, please the following from the command line and give me the output:

    hcitool dev

    and

    lsusb

    On the positive, it does look like the driver loads successfully so your hardware is compatable in some ways (wifi probably).

    Sorry to hear your Acer died. This output is from my Acer AO D255E. I appreciate any further suggestions.

    Re: AcerHK GUI -- GUI for users of the 'acerhk' driver to control wireless/bluetooth

    Does running

    lshw

    yield any listing for your bluetooth hardware? I hate to ask the question, as it seams you are quite knowledgeable about the commands, but is there bluetooth hardware in the device? I have seen several computers that have "bluetooth" indicator on it, but the hardware is not installed.

    There is a new replacement for the acerhk driver, but I think it only addresses the wifi issue. I guess searches for your device and ubuntu and or linux have turned up nothing of value?

    If you can find out what hardware you have through in make/model of card, search for that and linux to see if there are other users out there that have gotten it working and how. Usually, the same hardware is used by several manufacturers in different computers.

    If you find the hardware make/model, let me know. I will try to do a search for it also.

    I hope you can figure it out. I have a CAC Card reader built in to my acer that never worked... ended up just getting an external. Perhaps you may need to spend $12 - $20 to get a bluetooth dongle... (recommend the Belkin brand as they work good for me... worth the couple extra bucks.)

    cheers,
    A
