Post-install fixes

Wireless (Lucid Lynx)

With wired connection, open System->Administration->Hardware Drivers and activate the b43-fwcutter.

Without wired connection there are two options. Rebooting is not required.

Solution 1. Download and install the firmware for the b43 driver (recommended)

Download this and this form another computer. Save them on the Desktop. Open a terminal and run

cd ~/Desktop
tar xvf b43-tools-5a082479780cc0ce68c1a1b8709b30a092461e4c.tar.gz
cd b43-tools/fwcutter
make
cd ..
export FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR="/lib/firmware"
tar xjf ../broadcom-wl-4.178.10.4.tar.bz2
cd broadcom-wl-4.178.10.4/linux
sudo ../../fwcutter/b43-fwcutter -w "$FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR" wl_apsta.o
sudo modprobe b43

(adapted from http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#fw-b43-lp)

Solution 2. Download and install the Broadcom proprietary driver

Download the .deb file of the bcmwl-kernel-source package from here.

Make sure you download all its dependencies as well (or just try to install and let the package installer complain so that you know what are the dependencies).

Double-click on the .deb files to open the package installer.

After installing bcmwl-kernel-source open a terminal and run

sudo modprobe wl

Wireless (Karmic Koala)

With wired connection, open System->Administration->Hardware Drivers and activate the bcm driver.

Without wired connection use the "Solution 2" above. Rebooting is not required.

Audio (Karmic Koala)

Open a terminal and run

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Copy the following lines to the end of the file:

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=acer
options snd-hda-intel power_save=0 power_save_controller=N

Save. Exit.

Issues

Audio

Recording with the internal microphone had very poor quality.

Wireless

Turning on/off wireless via the switch key does work but Ubuntu is not aware of the switching. Only after a while it realizes "there are no available networks" or some "connection problems", not that the device is actually off.

LED does not work as it should: slow blinking when not connected, full when connected and fast blinking when sending/receiving data.

lshw

sudo lshw -C network makes the xserver mess up the screen. BUG #545469
