    Asus T91 12.04 installation

    38 pages of posts seemed a bit much so here's a brand new Asus T91 thread. Yeaaaayyyy.

    On initial login screen is distorted (desktop in top half only). It may be necessary to select "recovery mode" at the grub menu and then resume. It may also be necessary to go into terminal (ctrl+alt+f1) & restart X
    sudo service lightdm restart
    [Q: why does this restart X?]

    1) To get boot into graphical environment working:

    gksudo leafpad /etc/default/grub
    edit line starting GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT to read:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet console=tty1"
    save and exit, then update grub with

    sudo update-grub

    (Fixes adapted by trial and error from Poulsbo driver wiki)

    (At some point during this process I was prompted to update the system - this didn't seem to be critical but what do I know.)

    Now the T91 boots into the Xubuntu desktop, and:
    - wifi works
    - Youtube plays acceptably in window
    - Volume keys work. Webcam works (tested in Cheese).
    - Speakers work
    - Headphones work

    Problems so far:
    - Brightness keys don't work FIXED
    - Display broken after restarting from suspend FIXED
    - Touchscreen calibration off slightly FIXED
    - Microphone doesn't appear to work (tested in Audacity)
    - Screen won't rotate (lost cause with current GMA 500 driver?)
    - Youtube playback choppy fullscreen
