    Lightbulb How to ASUS K50IJ - Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty

    Well the laptop originally comes with linux but I wanted ubuntu..
    I had some problems and solved them after googeling a lot..

    WLAN
    run this command and wlan will work
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty
    I think this is not the best solution.. but it works

    Compile own WLAN
    at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=874097

    I can't say it's better/worser..
    I did it .. but i can't see any improvement..
    compared to linux-backports-modules-jaunty

    Sound 1

    DONT USE THIS ! USE SOUND 2 !

    Sound is more work
    Get the ALSA updater script from:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6589810#post6589810
    Extract it .. and make it executable ! and run it
    Code:
    sudo ./AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.17.sh -di
    -di will download and install newest ALSA

    Then run this script: (found at https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubun...23/comments/38)
    Code:
    sudo -s
    wget ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/tiwai/misc/hda-verb/hda-verb-0.3.tar.gz
    tar xf hda-verb-0.3.tar.gz
    cd hda-verb-0.3
    make
    cp hda-verb /usr/bin
    gedit /etc/rc.local
    And add this line before "exit 0"
    Code:
    hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x1c SET_EAPD_BTLENABLE PCM
    Reboot and your sound will work

    Sound 2
    Code:
    wget ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/tiwai/snapshot/alsa-driver-unstable-snapshot.tar.gz
    tar xf alsa-driver-unstable-snapshot.tar.gz
    cd alsa-driver-unstable
    ./configure --with-cards=hda-intel
    make
    sudo make install
    Reboot and it will work
    If you used Sound 1 ! Don't forget to change back the edited /etc/rc.local file !

    Sound problems
    Executing wine stops the sound play back, no idea why.. just restart VLC,Rythmox
    or what ever you use..and it will work again..

    Sound crackles:
    I upgraded my ext3 to ext4 .. and sound was crackeling..
    look at the attached image, make sure PCM is at 100%

    After every boot PCM is a 0%
    Do this:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/rc.local
    and add before "exit 0" this:
    Code:
    amixer set PCM 70%
    and/or also add it into the autostart (Session-manager) !

    Webcam (flip)
    Found at: http://radu.cotescu.com/2009/07/31/r...ams-in-ubuntu/

    And for copy and past:
    Code:
    sudo -s
    cd /bin/
    wget http://codebin.cotescu.com/uvcvideo/flip_webcam
    chmod +x flip_webcam
    flip_webcam 1
    And it will be done..

    After a kernel update run again:
    Code:
    sudo flip_webcam 1
    If left and right is also wrong.. then use the "2"
    Code:
    sudo flip_webcam 2
    LCD brightness FN-Keys
    (also solves flickering)
    Code:
    sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
    add to this line
    Code:
    # defoptions=quiet splash
    this:
    Code:
    # defoptions=quit splash acpi_backlight=vendor
    save and do:
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    Reboot.. and it will work
