    Re: Acer Aspire 8920G

    Hello guys,

    I have 6920G and here is some good tips to tune some hardware http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=921637

    But I still can not configure my video adapter. Max resolution is 800x600.

    Any ideas will be appreciated!

    TIA

    Michael

    for the video adapter:
    all i had to do was enable the restricted drivers.
    i think u do it by
    System> admin>hardware drivers

    than enable the restricted nividia drivers

    Has anyone tried 8.10 on aspire 8920. Any improvements with new kernel? What about webcam? Is it working? I'm going to install Ubuntu on my friends aspire and it's going to be his first Linux, don't want to blow it.

    im using the 8920 and got everything working except for the cine dash controls... i think theres a step missing from the instructions..

    but sound works fine now

    except
    1 problem.. theres no mixer.. at least tht ive found so far..
    how do i control the system volume and unmute or mute things?


    all the other instructions seem to work fine for the 8920g..

    I had to research brands of laptops before purchasing mine, and i finally got Acer Aspire 5720z after everything thing worked on 8.04 except my wifi and webcam. display, nic, sound and card reading is superb by default.

    I am still optimistic that my wifi (atheros wireless 5700EG) would be working soon.

    Glethro, What version of Ubuntu are you using? Intrepid? x64? or 32bit? and are you using alsa? or OSS4? Thanks.

    How did you get sound working?

    Cheers mate

    cheers, i agree with the person who said you are owed a beer, at first i thought it wasn't working, but the touch pad for volume was causing some issues, but it's now sorted,

    thank you very very much

    btw, this was on a 6920g, running 32bit intrepid i386
    everything was working out of the box (well apart from the nvidia) and you stopped me looking elsewhere (as in another distro, thinking ubuntu may have messed up- long history with certain issues which other distros never had)
