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

    Hi, thanks for the nice tutorial!

    Has anyone got Nvidia Propritary driver AND suspend and/or hibernate to work at the same time? I can do each separately, but not both.

    I installed the NVIDIA driver through Restricted Manager and added the option mentionned in the tutorial. The computer hibernates or suspends, but on wake up, the screen remains blank.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

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

    Heya guys, after seeing this guide I decided to take the plunge and install ubuntu 7.10 on my tc1100.

    Installation went fine, and it connects to my wifi network. I can ping websites from the terminal, but wget doesn't do anything. At first firefox wouldn't load up any pages, but after much talking with a friend we got firefox to come alive, I had to go into the about:config and change

    "network.dns.disableIPv6"

    to true.

    Rather annoyingly, apt-get doesn't work and neither does synaptic, whatever it tries to download fails.
    Other computers on the network (windows &mac) can access the net fine, and the DNS is the same on both the tc1100 and this machine.
    I have no idea whats wrong (I am a linux n00b).

    Any ideas or help would be appreciated
    Thanks
    Mark.

    Many thanks, just before reading your reply I had tried this guide from

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=161742

    which didn't help. I gather the two methods achieve the same end?

    I will reset the file and try the method you linked to.

    Neither method has resolved this, I am quite tempted to reinstall the OS.

    I have managed to resolve the problem with apt-get http://="http://ubuntuforums.org/sho...206692&page=3"
    Other than that I am very happy with it, thanks for the guide!

    Has anyone tried the latest Hardy on this tablet to see if the memory card reader works. Apparently, there has been some fixes in this area.

    If your able to reply, there is a bug report: 163345

    An answer is needed for this bug as to whether the memory card reader now works.

    I did a few perfunctory tests with Hardy Heron Alpha 6 (downloaded March 15, 2008 ) on my TC1100. There have been no changes with regards to the SD card reader. No card will be detected. The same card is detected, read and written when used in the other HP laptop both with Gibbon and Heron.

    On the other hand, on the TC1100 not even Windows XP handles the card. It detects it and assigns it a drive letter (E: ). However, it can not read the card, offers to format it, fails to format if asked to. This is the XP wich was installed when I bought the PC. It is conceivable that the XP installation is somewhat flawed because the PC appeared to be refurbished when I bought it.

    The SD slot does not appear to work on this PC. Period. I bought a 5$ SD to USB adapter which works at once without thinking about it.

    Personally, my TC1100 worked fine with XP Tablet Edition including the card reader. But using Ubuntu Gutsy, I had to resort to a PCMCIA card reader which did the job.

    I hope someone can give a Yes/No to the bug report so the devs can mark it as Fixed or whatever.

    use this for rotate and use pen:
    Section "InputDevice"
    Driver "wacom"
    Identifier "cursor"
    Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS4"
    Option "Type" "cursor"
    Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
    Option "Mode" "Absolute"
    Option "Button2" "3"
    EndSection

    Section "InputDevice"
    Driver "wacom"
    Identifier "stylus"
    Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS4"
    Option "Type" "stylus"
    Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
    Option "Mode" "Absolute"
    Option "Button2" "3"
    EndSection

    And add the following lines to the Server Layout section.

    InputDevice "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
    InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
