 aspire one - D150

Brand: Acer (Netbook)

Release: Maya
Status: Works fine with some minor problems

What works:

SW - linux mint 13 cinnamon 32-bit with

HW - D150

What doesn't work:

Terribly slow or freezing SW manager

- Broadcom Bcm4312 WIFI not detected!!! - solved via b43** packages and some terminal entry, however not in a nice way

- resolution of screen is not adjustable (800*600 assumed) when connecting 2nd screen!!! - solved via resapplet, screen-resolution-extra

Partial drag and drop - no multiple marking!!!

Scanner (hp 6310) not detected (xsane&simplescan;)

noisy fan does not stop till rebooting

RAM Cache always full - slowdowns the system

(7) Overheating - shutting off continuously - Block in "heavy" sites as facebook or with many images

(8) MS Wireless Keybord 1000 not working (MS Desktop Receiver 3.1)

(9) No drivers for the 3G-usb (Cosmote-GR)

What was done to make it work:

b43-fwcutter, fw-b43-lpphy-installer, broadcom-sta-common
+ some commandline and restarts

sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source
echo "blacklist brcmsmac" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
echo "blacklist bcma" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf


- resapplet, screen-resolution-extra


(4) scanner detected in xsane only via
sudo adduser saned lpadmin


sudo adduser saned lp
sudo apt-get install libcups2-dev
sudo hp-check -r
sudo hp-setup
scanimage -L

instructions in
do not work

- bleachbit ("ccleaner" in linux)

Problem difficult to handle.
- However, using Chrome (w/o Adblock, seems to add stress) instead of Firefox brings some improvement.
- If midori is used processor load and is far less and overheating is avoided, but is very elementary browser.
- Depends on Firefox & Chrome editions e.g currently (07/2013) with Adblock & Flashblock things seem far better.

(8) -

(9) Bypass the problem by using WBR-6800 (3g-wifi router).
(only possible for Cosmote network, not Vodafone where a PC/MAC application is required)

Additional notes:

- npp++ & foxit via Wine (gedit & doc.viewer relatively primitive)

- Firefox: change Yahoo default search engine (!!!) to Google

- smaller fonts (to 9)
