    Re: Asus X205TA hardware support in Ubuntu

    Hi all,

    Quick update, seems that the file: /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43340-sdio.txt (copied over from /sys/firmware/efi/efivars/nvram*), contained an incorrect MAC address. I've updated in brcmfmac43340-sdio.txt the correct MAC (given by wpa_supplicant) and now I got my X205TA finally online with Linux

    Only the audio that's left (and maybe BT).

    Koen.

    Hi Koen

    Thank you for posting this information - I can see light at the end of the tunnel!

    Do the hotkeys and power settings (sleep especially) work with the 4.0 kernel? And does the trackpad have multitouch or is it still behaving like a mouse?

    Cheers

    This is great news! I purchased this device specifically with putting ubuntu on it. Was worried that I would have to stick with windows 8.1.

    Hi Koen, I did also find the brcmfmac43340-sdio.bin file in the Android repository. However I don't have the Windows partition intact. Could you post a copy of the brcmfmac43340-sdio.txt file? Thanks!

    Hi,

    Concerning the wireless, it seems that an additional step is needed to have it working correctly. On needs to do following extra steps, to be added in /etc/rc.local so it's executed at boot time:

    rmmod brcmfmac
    rmmod brcmutil
    echo on > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/sdhci-acpi/INT33BB\:00/power/control
    modprobe brcmfmac

    (Credits to the people in : https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88061 )

    If you wouldn't do these extra steps, the network manager will only be rarely capable of connecting to a selected network.

    ----
    @Jon_Bradbury ; I don't have the impression the hotkeys work already out of the box, maybe with extra config ... The mousepad, I didn't test yet, how should I try to do this? For example, zooming out on Google Maps?
    @antidrugue ; I don't have the laptop with me now but I'll try to add the file tomorrow evening or Saturday.

    Anyone an idea about the audio? I don't get it; "needed" audio kernel modules are loaded but no audio devices are seen ... Could I try or test something? Someboy an idea? Because the kern.log is not at all throwing errors ...

    For the rest, it seems to run quite stable (taking into account beta 1 of Lubuntu 15.04 + a RC3 of kernel 4.0 ) and quite fast (taking into account the limited hardware resources).

    Br,
    Koen.

    Hi koen

    Try two finger scrolling, that is minimum multitouch functionality. Also look in the settings to see if a trackpad was detected or is it just seeing a mouse?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Please find the required files (to be modified) via following link: http://www.filedropper.com/x205ta . About the multitouch, doesn't seem to work (yet), but I still need to check if I could do something to get it working. Nobody meanwhile for the audio?

    Thanks,
    Koen.

    Hi Nighthawk
    Could you please put all the steps required in step-wise form and help? Did you put update 15.04 to daily/alphas and then put sdio files? Many people like me are struggling to make wifi/audio work on this great cheap laptop and your post shows some hope now.

    Thanks

    Hi TheNighthawk,
    I managed to do the same thing as you did for the first 2 steps, but with Ubuntu 15.04 daily build 64 bit. Now if you can share some detail steps on how to upgrade to Linux kernel 4.0 RC3, then I can try out the WiFi setup you shared here.

    Thanks,

    Lyre

    I think he might have downloaded rc3 from : http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...4.0-rc3-vivid/
