    Re: Asus T91 linux installation

    Karmic is really not ready for the T91. (or is it the T91 not ready for Karmic?)

    I tried :
    * Jaunty Moblin (with Dell) - no correct display. The psb modules can't "compile" on this 2.8.31 kernel.
    * Karmic Moblin (with Dell) - no correct display either. Coflict between jaunty and Kamric packages
    * Karmic, without Mablin - same issue (what did I expect ?)

    So, I'm back with Jaunty and my "not so good" Wifi.
    And, i have the flu...

    That sucks, I was really hoping Karmic would provide a good solution to some of the current problems.

    Can anyone whos successfully done it explain the process of screen calibration to me please? The GUI software for it on UNR won't start, and just goes to black screen than says screen is calibrated.

    Thank you for your help! Your code is working well and I'm now able to control brightness on my T91

    Question Re: Asus T91 linux installation

    [maybe out of topic]
    I've noticed that Asus support website is listing a BIOS update (version 0404) for the T91MT model (MT for MultiTouch?). Has anyone here tried to install this BIOS on the regular T91 model? Could it give better performences?
    The link:

    I'm not brave enough to try that...

    Re: Asus T91 linux installation

    From what I know Multi-Touch is set only to be available with Windows 7. As there is a version of the T91 planed with Win 7 I'm not sure if it is hardware related or if the bios would do the change. Then again I don't know if Ubuntu supports multi-touch.... all I know is that there wouldn't be much use for it.

    Despite all that was said so far, I'm still planing to upgrade my system to Karmic once it is officially released. I still have hope it will somehow work, or work because it is an upgrade from jaunty.

    Just be sure that the "mobile" repositories are available before you start upgrading...

    I'm running Xubuntu Karmic beta, I started today so I haven't sorted everything out but so far, but I'm running well at native resolution, touchscreen working properly, no crashes - I tried drawing in Gimp for a half hour, but I can't get it to, so far - webcam in skype, speakers, wifi (and wifi on/off key) both working out-of-the-box. I still need to get the microphone to work, alsa 10.0.21 is supposed to do the trick, but karmic comes with only 10.0.20, which has not worked so far. Also, brightness keys don't work once I have the poulsbo driver installed and I haven't had a chance to try the script for the rotate button yet.

    I'm following: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupp...eoCardsPoulsbo
    more info found at this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1253406

    note that the guide in the thread and the wiki use different xorg.conf files, i followed the wiki as the one in the thread made X not start.

    also, instead of, for instance:
    Code:
    echo 'deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mobile/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-mobile.list
    I simply added
    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mobile/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
    to my /etc/apt/sources.list manually, since I don't know how to do all the fancy "echo" stuff.

    also I'm not using using the most recent edition of the psb-kernel-* and psb-modules packages from lucazade (4.41.6) instead of the older one linked to.
    they can all be found here (under psb-kernel-source): https://launchpad.net/~lucazade/+archive/gma500/+packages

    Can you please explain more clearly how you made the display to work properly ?
    Instead of Xubuntu, you should try the moblin edition.

    Why, isn't Moblin edition only for the Dell?

    Unfortunately my computer crashed a few hours after the original post was written, so it may not be the best way to go. I'm still looking for a solution that won't crash.
    I thought this might be a good solution for 2 reasons:
    1) It is very similar to the solution on the following thread (post #15): http://swiss.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=7781689
    which cdufour told me in a PM has been working perfectly, without crashing. Unfortunately, I still haven't figured out how to get it to work, even after several attempts, if Karmic keeps crashing I will try it again. He told me to follow recompile my kernel following: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile
    But I must of been doing something wrong, cause never compiled...
    2) I thought, since that solution uses the karmic kernel anyway:

    it might be better just to use Karmic, also that would save us from having to upgrade, and will be supported longer...

    Here's what I did:
    Added the following to the end of my /etc/apt/sources.list file:
    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mobile/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mobile/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/albertomilone/poulsbo-graphics/ubuntu jaunty main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/albertomilone/poulsbo-graphics/ubuntu jaunty main
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/lucazade/gma500/ubuntu karmic main 
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/lucazade/gma500/ubuntu karmic main
    Authenticated keys:
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys C6598A30
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 99C0198F
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 6699F3D9
    Updated package list and installed needed packages:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install  dkms fakeroot
    sudo apt-get install libdrm-poulsbo1
    sudo apt-get install poulsbo-driver-2d poulsbo-driver-3d psb-firmware
    sudo apt-get install psb-kernel-headers psb-kernel-source psb-modules
    Added the following to my /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file:
    Code:
    blacklist i915
    Updated initramfs:
    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    If you have a /usr/bin/compiz file (I didn't when I was using Xfce, but I switched to Gnome and now I do), whitelist the psb driver by adding psb to the whitelist line, for example:
    Code:
    # Driver whitelist
    WHITELIST="nvidia intel ati radeon radeonhd i810 fglrx"
    is what mine looked like before... and
    Code:
    # Driver whitelist
    WHITELIST="psb nvidia intel ati radeon radeonhd i810 fglrx"
    is what it looked like afterward.
    Created /etc/X11/xorg.conf and inpasted the following:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
            Identifier      "GMA500"
            Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
            Option "DRI" "on"
            Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
            Option "IgnoreACPI" "yes"
            Driver "psb"
    EndSection
    
    Section "DRI"
        Mode    0666
    EndSection
    Last edited by Jonathanius; October 11th, 2009 at 02:25 AM. Reason: Added the section about whitelisting psb in /usr/bin/compiz
