    Exclamation Acer C7 Ubuntu 12.10

    I'm having several issues with various things not working correctly in Ubuntu 12.10 on my Acer C710 Chromebook. I don't know whether this is the laptop or something that I have done myself. The internal microphone is muffled in Google+ and records static when using sound recorder. The other issue is that I have no sound at all when playing Minecraft. Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Acer C7 Ubuntu 12.10

    Hey !!

    are u sure that your ubuntu gets correctly installed on chrome OS , actually there are some specific set of instructions which you should follow while installing ubuntu on chrome OS .

    and

    also it can be some issues with compatibility also.

    1) please report exactly what the error message was.

    2) try out these commands like "dmesg", "lspci -vv" and "lsusb" and let me know what are the outputs.

    3) is your webcam and sound are properly working ?

    Re: Acer C7 Ubuntu 12.10

    I used this guide to install Ubuntu 12.04 to my Acer C710 Installing Ubuntu on Acer C7 Chromebook. After this was completed I ran the Software Updater and updated it to Ubuntu 12.10. The Webcam and Sound work perfectly when I use Google+, Lovefilm after installing Moonlight and Youtube, so I can watch videos and stream videos to it no problem. I get no error messages on the screen. In regards to Minecraft, I had to google to get a solution to fix the blackscreen, and I had to google an Alsa fix to get the microphone working at all. Even though I used the Alsa patch, my mic is muffled in Google+ and Sound Recorder just records static.

    Re: Acer C7 Ubuntu 12.10

    I can't get all the output from the dmesg command as there's too much information and the beginning/start is missing.

    Re: Acer C7 Ubuntu 12.10

    Try this

    lspci -vv > verbose.txt

    the ">" will put the output into that file.
    I don' really like coffee. I guess I'll give my Ubuntu beans to my wife.

    Re: Acer C7 Ubuntu 12.10

    lspci -vv > verbose.txt <----- what will this command do? And I will try the mic fix and see what happens.

    EDIT: Tried the mic workaround and it works. Thanks guys for your help. I just help fixing all my Chromebook shortcut keys from F1 to F5. I've fixed the brightness keys and the volume keys work automatically, any suggestions on how to get the other shortcut keys working again?

    Re: Acer C7 Ubuntu 12.10

    install Linux Mint? if it's just to use the Mint desktop, simply install cinnamon, log out of your session, then choose cinnamon before logging back in - cinnamon will then become the defalut desktop manager

    hth!
