    Re: Acer aspire one 756 (review + tweaks)

    OK, so I've got lost a bit. Now, I am in between Xubuntu and Linux Mint Debian Xfce, or even Mate/Cinnamon.

    The most important thing is that I can run Bibble 5 Pro, Darktable, Libre Office 3.6 without any bugs, or deficiencies in design or functionality.

    Xfce is different desktop environment which might not support Bibble 5 Pro. I think it works with Darktable, but it might have some bugs.

    And another important factor is that it should work with this netbook! And what I found out was that it works nice with Mint 13 Xfce. According to this review.

    OK, I am here at the Xubuntu website, but it does not seem that there is a 64 bit version for Intel.

    There is no "Intel version" for 64 bit. There is a 32 bit version of Xubuntu and a 64 bit version both both AMD and Intel CPUs. Since AMD was the first to introduce 64 bit X86-compatible CPUs, their name is on the standard. "AMD64" works just fine on Intel 64 bit CPUs.

    Sorry for double-posting;

    And one more question-there is one modell of Aspire One 756 with Celeron 847 (1,1 Ghz) - i like this modell because it has non-glare display. Would there be big difference between Celeron 877 and Celeron 847?

    Thanks a dozen! I think I'll go with the Xfce DE. So Xubuntu, or Mint DEB Xfce.

    Namaste! Peace!

    Hi again-i bought today the acer aspire one 756 with celeron 847 (1,1 Ghz) because it has non-glare Display.
    It is really nice machine. The CPU Fan is very quite, but i have feeling that is almost unnecessary working all the time. I installed lm-sensors but sensors-detect found no fan:
    Code:
    linux@linux:~$ sensors
    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Physical id 0:  +44.0°C  (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
    Core 0:         +44.0°C  (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
    Core 1:         +43.0°C  (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
    This thread doesn´t help me a lot:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=42737
    Any suggestion how to make fancontrol working under xubuntu 12.04 with celeron 847?
    Tried also acerfand and acer_ec.pl but there are not responsive on my ao756...

    P.S. One more question: my AO756 has no bluetooth-is it possible to install some bluetooth card or i can use only usb bluetooth adapter?

    i've buyed an acer 756, i've put a SSD on it and i've installed xubuntu 12.10.
    I've applied the first tweak on first post. Xubuntu works very well and is very fast (maybe for SSD).

    All works very well.
