  1. Re: HOW TO: Install Ubuntu on a HP TC1100 tablet pc

    Hi Jose,

    Please see message 453 on page 46 of this thread. That will probably fix your wireless problem.

    Cheers,

  2. Re: HOW TO: Install Ubuntu on a HP TC1100 tablet pc

    Thanks!

    I tried installing the NVidia 96 a few different ways, and it just plain won't work. After trying just about everything it appears to be by design, as if the driver is blacklisted.

  3. Re: HOW TO: Install Ubuntu on a HP TC1100 tablet pc

    The Nvidia 96 driver that we had to wait for to be able to run Compiz in 10.10 can not be installed in 11.04. Because of this, it doesn't appear that we can run Compiz in 11.04.

    Hi Graham,

    Were you able to get Unity working with your TC1100? Is there a trick? I saw a window on first boot that claimed that video hardware was insufficient to run it, so it started up in...

  6. [SOLVED] Re: Connecting to the Internet from Ubuntu via Bluetooth through Blackberry

    The sdptool search command didn't work for me either. Try sdptool browse. 00:1C:CC:5D:E0:35 is the address of your BlackBerry.

    Matt,

    Which version of Nvidia driver is this? Is it in the Ubuntu repository, or was it downloaded from Nvidia?

    Cheers,
    Randy
  8. Re: HOW TO: Install Ubuntu on a HP TC1100 tablet pc

    That's it! I did my 10.04 install from USB a couple of months ago. The TC1100 is the first computer I've had that will reliably boot from a USB thumb drive! Even my Macbook Pro won't do it!

  9. Re: HOW TO: Install Ubuntu on a HP TC1100 tablet pc

    This isn't my endorsement of 10.10 on the TC1100. I'm pretty happy with 10.04 for now. I won't upgrade to 10.10 until the Nvidia 96 driver is updated.

    Cheers,
    Randy
  10. Re: HOW TO: Install Ubuntu on a HP TC1100 tablet pc

    Good idea to keep a backup around just for this situation. I keep the TC1100 around basically as a plaything, but if I blow away the OS (which I've done several times) it's always nice to have a...
  11. Re: HOW TO: Install Ubuntu on a HP TC1100 tablet pc

    I was booting from a 10.04 image on a USB thumb drive. I did notice the first time that I booted that way that the wireless wasn't available.



    You mean that Windows is actually useful for...

    Hmmm, thanks! I thought there was something up with the Dell TrueMobile Orinoco/Lucent card. I gave one of the early reports on using this card with 10.04. I actually got it to work for a very...
  14. Re: HOW TO: Install Ubuntu on a HP TC1100 tablet pc

    I swapped the Intel card back in and ran dmesg, lshw and iwconfig again. The card is recognized but disabled. I have not figured out how to enable it. Also, the PCMCIA card won't start when the...

    It turns out to be pretty tough installing florence from source. It wants some dependencies that don't show up in the repos. I did find a binary package for Lucid here:

  20. Re: HOW TO: Install Ubuntu on a HP TC1100 tablet pc

    You don't want to try 10.10 on the TC1100 just yet. There is an incompatibility with the proprietary Nvidia driver and the Xorg Xserver 1.9 that comes with 10.10. It's pretty much a show stopper...

    The nv driver is an open source driver from Xorg. It has very limited capabilities. It will not work with the 3d desktop effects. Upgrading the Nvidia driver doesn't work. There's a basic...

    I upgraded to 10.10 a couple of days ago. Be aware that the Nvidia-96 driver that we use for the TC1100 will not work with the Xorg 1.9 that installs with 10.10. There's no real fix or workaround...
