    Re: Configuring Acer 6920 Hardware

    Im sorry i can't quite understand the error, you followed the instructions completely? i found it easy to make a bash script to install everything for me, just by copying all the lines of code i listen in a file and adding #!/bin/sh in the first line.
    running chmod +x <file.sh>
    and running ./file.sh

    just pay attention when it prompts for any information. This sound tut works perfectly for the Acer 6920 on Hardy Heron, i haven't tried other. make sure ur statistics are the same
    When you first dont succeed, google- google again

    Hi, CJay554!

    Many thanks for this guide.

    I still can't configure my display. My max screen resolution is 800x600.

    Any tips will be appreciated.

    TIA

    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

    Thank you so much for this, I have one of these laptops too (they rock!) and I'm a very much a Linux n00b...

    I have the version with 4GB RAM, which causes some incompatibility with the kernel and the video memory addressing, somehow got that to work, but I still have several minor issues (no sound!)

    So, I think, once Improbable Iraqi is released, it's time for a fresh start!

    Question Re: Configuring Acer 6920 Hardware

    Sound is warking good, but it is to quiet... What can I do to make it louder?

    TIA

    Re: Configuring Acer 6920 Hardware

    Just had to say thanks for the tutorial, I just bought my own acer laptop, the Acer AS8920G. I like this series, thanks to the bluray player, the 16:9 display and the hardwares capability of displaying HD movies.

    Hopefully I'll get everything to work

    Compared to how the drivers work in Vista with the Audio, the Ubuntu hardy drivers aren't as loud (no surround sound as promised with acer) so you'll be stuck with regular sound..

    Ubuntu 8.10 has come out and im excited to see what will be done to address this! so far i don't see a difference other than the Ethernet is recognized.
    The sound is still void, unless im missing something...
