    Re: How To: ubuntu natty (11.04) on asus a53s (k53sv family)

    @ DumbEar

    Did you cd into the right directory?
    Was there a file build by the dpkg-buildpackage command? What was it's name?
    Have you also tried sudo dpkg -i acpi4asus-dkms_2.6.39-1_all.deb?

    @ javidemon

    Any error messages?
    Afaik, packages like Bumblebee and Ironhide are still a bit experimental.
    Im my case Bumblebee is working for about 90%. Can't switch it 100% off which would be nice for less power consumption.
    Haven't tried Ironhide though.....anyone here maybe?

    but being the dkms branch is quite easy to make it "stick"

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install debhelper

    dpkg-buildpackage
    sudo dpkg -i [newlycreated-package].deb

    This worked for volume up/down on G53SX-A1.
    In addition Bluetooth drivers also worked as they laptops use the same chip. I assume much from this thread works for all G73 and G53 models.

    Thank you!

    Re: How To: ubuntu natty (11.04) on asus a53s (k53sv family)

    Thanks for this wonderful guide.

    I just bought Asus K53SV - V2G

    I followed the steps given in first post and I got following things working.

    1. Bumblebee
    2. Special Function Keys (Vol Up etc)
    3. Touchpad


    Sometimes I see my mouse pointer stops for a sec, then works again, so I guess I'm having some problem with freezing.

    Didn't notice any change in WiFi connectivity.

    I don't know how to check for FAN speeds so can't tell more about it.

    Yet to check card reader, I'll inform when I get one.

    Things I want to give a try:

    Getting touchpad working for multi-touch gestures such as Zoom In/Out two fingers, rotate image, etc

    So how should I go about this?

    If you followed the instructions from the first post, then you already have the touchpad driver. Go to System >> Preferences >> Mouse Preferences and you should see a tab for Touchpad. There you can enable two-finger scrolling, disable while typing, etc.

    There's another, fancier utility out there that gives you extra options for the touchpad, like "rotate" scrolling (a la original iPod), but I forget what it's called. These days I find simpler is better. (Except for my Compiz spinny cube, of course!)

    The touchpad is working fine. But yes I need Rotate, Zoom In, Zoom Out option. I would like to know the name of the app which you are talking about.


    Also does anybody know how to get Full Gnome 3 working on 11.10 on this k53sv? I have installed Bumblebee, and I'm getting Fallback mode only.

    I'm running G53s, currently with old 2.6.32-5 kernel (3.x kernel panicks when loading). I have no problems with wifi or touchpad, the cpu frequency scaling works nicely (spins down all the way to 0.8 GHz when idle). Fn for turning wifi on/off works fine (the most useless key ever, sight)

    What does not work:

    • fn-keys for screen brightness or volume
    • I can't control the screen brighness with an panel applet, it doesn't go dim when on battery either. The only option is through nvidia-settings.
    • Keyboard backlight (no functionality at all, less alone brigness controll)
    • Sensors-detect doesn't detect any sensors and as a result I don't see CPU temp in Conky


    I tried compiling acpi4asus, it fails with:

    Code:
    undefined reference to linux/input/sparse-keymap.h:
    And I indeed don't have such a header in the system. Could someone who succesfully compiled this module please run:

    Code:
    sudo updatedb && locate sparse-keymap.h
    And tell me the results?

    How did you get nvidia-settings working? I keep getting following dialog box.

    Code:
    You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver.  Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.
    I didn't do the nvidia-xconfig as it gets me blank screen (I tried that on 11.04, yet to try on 11.10)

    Re: How To: ubuntu natty (11.04) on asus a53s (k53sv family)

    Here's what I did:

    • Got rid of previously installed Nvidia drivers:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-*
    • Installed proprietary driver:

    sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-settings nvidia-xconfig


    • Additional libraries you might need:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install mesa-common-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libxi-dev libxmu-dev libglut-dev freeglut3-dev
    • Blacklisted free nouveau drivers (you don't need it but sometimes it comes back when updating kernel):

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    blacklist vga16fb
    blacklist nouveau
    blacklist rivafb
    blacklist nvidiafb
    blacklist rivatv
    • And did what he asks for, then rebooted:

    Code:
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    This should create a xprg.conf for you. Now I'm not sure if You have the proprietary driver in Ubuntu repos (I'm running Debian), if not download the driver from here:

    http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

    And run the binary as root.

    Now everything that I have in /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-amd64/include/linux is autoconf.h, bounds.h, compile.h, utsrelease.h and version.h. Seems like this kernel is too old. I just tried compiling my own 2.6.39 but it also doesn't load... Was anyone succesfull with compiling custom kernel for asus G53/G73 ?

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I've found a way to get the screen brightness keys working by editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf and adding:

    Code:
    Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1"
    in Section "Monitor"

    Bumblebee is working fine on my k53sv laptop. But how can I run full Gnome 3 (I get fallback otherwise) or Unity 3D.

    If I remove nvidia proprietary drivers, I'm getting full Gnome 3 and Unity 3D, but using bumblebee I'm unable to get that.
