Ubuntu Netbook Remix Post-Installation Help


The purpose of this guide is to enable Wifi, hibernate, and other features on the Toshiba NB205 that which do not work out of the box with Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR).

Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi must be enabled in Windows XP before installing UNR or else it is impossible to enable it. **Update** You can also enable your wifi by going into your BIOS setup at startup and enabling wifi.

From the main menu, go to Administration then Software Sources. In the Updates tab check "Unsupported updates (jaunty-backports)". After closing this window, Update Manager will likely ask you to allow it to check for updates, and you should do so. If it does not, issue in a terminal:

sudo aptitude update

...to retrieve new package lists.

After the package list update, from a console issue the following command to get Wi-Fi up and running.

sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty

This will install a new Linux kernel (2.6.28-14-generic as of this writing) which will be selectable from your boot loader upon restarting your computer.

Sound

To enable sound via headphone jack, use a text editor as root to add the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf:

options snd-hda-intel model=asus-mode4
