Asus Eee PC 1011-PX - Fn Keys

Hi all
I tried these :
and many other topics about Fn keys problem in Arch linux with Asus eee series , but I haven't found my model (1011PX)
when I want to setup "acpi-eeepc-generic" , it says :
"   >>> You're model 1011PX is not (yet) supported.   "
I just can use brightness keys without any others like sound volume, monitor power off, sleep , ... .
I will be thankful if you answer

Rather than begging and bumping (one against forum culture, the other against forum rules) how about you actually describe the problem.  What is happening, what do you want to happen?  Are we expected to read the three linked threads which *don't* apply and try to infer what you want help with?
Is this for archlinux, or for Chakra?
Thanks for this vitriolic+useful reply.
I heard that Arch forum is so active. I didn't expect that my question remain unsolved for more than 2 days
,sorry, it seems I was wrong.
I think that I described the problem clearly :
"I just can use brightness keys without any others like sound volume, monitor power off, sleep , ... ."
which proportionately to the subject (="Asus Eee PC 1011-PX - Fn Keys") means that my Fn keys don't work except
brightness keys(10/12 keys don't work).
Who is talking about Chakra? I'm using Arch.It's better to concentrate on my first post+subject of the topic
instead of reading my posts belong to the ancient times.
sorry for breaking rules, delete this topic if you want, I ignored my question,I should be silent and just google.

  • Problem with coolers in Asus Eee pc 1011 px

    Well I installed Arch in this netbook and the performance is wonderful, but i have an important problem. The fans dont seem to regulate themself and they dont start speeding when the netbook is getting hotter. Is there any way to solve this, like setting them to be always at the maximium speed or something like that ?

    What netbook do you have?
    Check wiki
    In AUR you have some packages to control fans.

  • Questions about asus eee 701 and trayer/ openbox

    This is a two part problem and I didn't know where to post them.  I have am asus eee laptop, using arch linux with openbox.
    First - how can I make trayer stay below all other windows, right now it above them? 
    Second - I'm using Idegh acpi package and I want to dim the screen when the ac is unplugged and have go back when it is plugged in.  I have  tied xbacklite from the cli and it does kinda work(but messes with the key board controls),when in the acpi script it will only dim once and go back.  Gnome power manager works great but I don't want to use it.  I would think echoing a value to a file would work but what file?
    Thanks for any help

    Don't know if it works with trayer, but on my eeepc (huhu) I use peksystray. If I want it to be below other windows, I juste have to launch ObConf, In the Dock tab, Stacking and choose the third option

  • [SOLVED] Asus eee 1000H : netcfg and wicd unable to obtain IP

    I just installed arch linux on my asus eee 1000h, but I can't get
    wireless to work. I installed the packages:
    - wireless_tools
    - netcfg
    I have been reading through the beginners guide and the wireless setup guide,
    but still no success.
    I did
    lspci | grep -i net
    And found out I had to add the firmware for my card, so I did that and:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    worked. So I did:
    iwlist wlan0 scan
    And found the network I wanted to connect too, so I do:
    iwconfig wlan0 essid network_id key wep_hex_key
    But I dont get associated to any access point, so I tried:
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    Sometimes this gets me associated to the access point, however, it seems to
    be pretty unstable. Usually it 'looses' it's association after a short period
    of time.
    Then I do:
    dhcpcd wlan0
    However, I just get the output
    dhcpcd: version 5.2.2 starting
    dhcpcd: broadcasting for a lease
    dhcpcd: timed out
    I check "iwconfig wlan0" at it says it is still associated to the access point.
    I have tried netcfg, but it also just get's timed out waiting for a lease.
    I've tried to get this to work for a long time now, but can't seem to get it to
    work. I've read somewhere that it might be a bug in dhcpcd? If you have a
    suggestion for something to try, please keep in mind that I am not at all
    familiar with arch linux and explain accordingly.
    I installed arch linux because I want a distribution that forces me to learn
    more about linux, I just did'nt think it would be this much trouble, been trying
    for a couple of days now, I have allready learned alot though.
    Thanks for any reply.
    EDIT: I also tried setting the timeout to 120, it did not work
    EDIT 2: I tried using netcfg again. It first returned:
    WPA Authentication/Association Failed
    I tried again, and it returned:
    DHCP IP lease attempt failed
    Does this mean I have to use wpa encryption? I find this
    strange as I am connecting to the same network with
    my ubuntu machine using wep encryption.

    edit your /etc/rc.conf to blacklist all of the modules that interfere with the rt2860sta module:
    MODULES=(!rt2800pci !rt61pci !rt2x00pci !rt2800usb !rt2800lib !rt2x00usb !rt2x00lib)
    don't initialize network with any other services:
    make sure you don't have conflicting daemons running:
    DAEMONS=(syslog-ng dbus wicd netfs crond)
    then restart and try again(or go through rmmod and stopping and starting the individual services)
    btw... I am using arch+wicd on my eee 1000h to write this post, so if you have any more problems just let me know.
    also check out the eee 901 archwiki page it has a lot of good info and links.

  • Issues with Arch, xorg and Asus eee 4G 701

    Hello, this is my first post here
    I installed Arch 2009.02 on my Asus eee 701(4G), the installation went well and the system was up and running within minutes. I configured the wireless card (Atheros) which arch supported out-of-the-box and updated the system with pacman -Syu. Then, I installed the intel driver for the vga of the eee and attempted to configure X.
    The issues started at this point. "Xorg -configure" appeared to work, but when I did "X -config /root/" all I could see was the mouse cursor as an X and nothing more. The touchpad didn't respond and nothing worked.
    Then, I tried using "xorgcfg" but even though the screen worked great (I could see the stuff displayed), the system couldn't receive any input from the touchpad and thus the result was just a little bit better than with "Xorg -configure". I tried to reboot and use a USB mouse to see if the cursor responded but to no avail...
    As a last resort, I decided to use the xorg.conf found on the eee page of the archwiki. I downloaded it in my PC, saved it and used wget to move it from my ftp server to the eee. I moved it to /etc/X11/ as xorg.conf and attempted to run "X -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf" to see if it worked. Unfortunately, no result. xorg attempted to start and then quit with the error "Fatal server error:  no screens found".
    That's pretty much it... I have no idea what to do next or why the xorg.conf found in the Arch wiki doesn't work... Any suggestions would be really appreciated...

    I did what you suggested above, but it still fails. Then I studied the log and I found this:
    Parse error on line 10 of section files in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    "RgbPath" is not a valid keyboard in this section
    Any suggestions on how to solve this?
    EDIT: OK, the discussion page on the Archwiki helped. All I had to do was remove the  'RgbPath "/usr/share/X11/rgb"' line and xorg worked flawlessly

  • Installing Arch on Asus Eee, Already Read the Wiki [Solved]

    I'm attempting to install Arch on my Asus Eee 701 (4GB SSD model) and I made a mistake that I'm having trouble correcting.  First, I accidentally wrote the image to my Eee's SSD, instead of my USB drive.  I tried to install Arch with the installer on my SSD, set up the partitions (one for /, one for /boot, and one for /home), but when I issued the command, it told me that the disk was in use.  It was then that I realized what I did.  I used an Ubuntu LiveCD on another computer to burn the image file again, this time to my USB drive.  I booted my Eee from the USB drive and tried to partition my SSD again, but this time, it tells me:
    Device or resource busy
    This disk is currently in use - repartitioning is probably a bad idea.
    Unmount all file systems, and swapoff all swap partitions on this disk.
    Use the --no-reread flag to suppress this check.
    Use the --force flag to overrule all checks.
    When I boot from my SSD, I get the same message, so I'm not even 100% certain that I booted from my USB drive before.  My USB drive's activity light was on though.
    Is there any way to fix this?  Also, given that I have an SSD, what partitions should I set up and how big should they be?  I can't find any concrete numbers in the wiki.
    Thanks in advance for the help.
    Last edited by Tyrian (2008-11-17 04:14:23)

    I'll try that, thanks.  What would happen if I dismounted the SSD with -f if it was in use?
    EDIT:  I just realized that when I go into the installer, it lets me set up partitions manually (I run the installer, pick "Prepare Hard Drive", "Partition Hard Drives", "/dev/sda").  But how should I set them up?  When I test it by just making one 4GB partition, it tells me, "Wrote partition table, but re-read table failed.  Reboot to update table."  So I rebooted, and it appears to work.  So I deleted that partition, made a 512MB one, rebooted, and repeated until I had 3 partitions in ext2, a 512MB (sda1, bootable), 512MB (sda2), and one roughly 2.5GB (sda3).  I then went to "Set Filesystem Mountpoints", said "NONE" for the swap (due to the avoiding pitfalls section of the wiki), picked "/dev/sda1" as "/" in ext2, made "/dev/sda2" as ext2 called "/var", and made "/dev/sda3" in ext2 called "/home", then said "DONE".  When I say "Yes" as the confirmation prompt, I get this message:
    Error creating filesystem: mke2fs /dev/sda1
    I hit enter and get dropped back to the "Prepare Hard Drive" menu.  I followed this section of the Beginner's Guide too.

  • Asus eee pc 900a

    Hello everyone,
    I am considering purchasing a Asus eee 900a model for budget and spec reasons; I have read overall good reviews about this machine besides some battery issues. Does anyone out there own the 900a model and are using Arch? If so, how is it working out for you?  any input will be greatly appreciated - any mature and constructive input.

    A few additional tips:
    - Use toofishes' EEE kernel. It is bloody fast! See the wiki for information.
    - Use the AUR package acpi-eee-generic. It is a unified set of scripts for the eeepc series. It handles most (if not: all) ACPI events and works almost out of the box.
    - Have fun. Booting arch in 6 seconds on a measly Celeron 900 (I do not have the 900a) kicks major um backside.

  • Asus EEE PC Hdparm -B issue

    I have a Asus  EEE PC 1015pem and run arch with the orginal kernel and I use laptop-mode-tools.
    After i installed laptop-mode-tools i begin to hear a clicking noise from the harddrive... I figured out that when i used the laptop on battery the hdparm -B
    value was 1, and if I run hdparm -B 254 /dev/sda the clicking noise disappear... So i changed the hdparm -B values in laptop-mode.conf to 254 but when i
    reboot the computer still use 1 on battery... So computer doesn't read the values from laptop-mode.conf.
    I then put in
    hdparm -B 254 /dev/sda
    in rc.local and if I start the computer now even if it runs on battery it use the value 254, but the problem is that if I now put in the ac adapter and then unplug it
    the computer go back to the 1 value...
    So if someone now how I can fix this please tell me
    Last edited by 9011 (2011-01-13 09:27:48)

    I think the problem lies in the power manager of the DE you run. I found that the only reliable way to force hdparm to 254 is to manually run it, because some DE scripts overwrite it.
    OR a script that's to be executed when power adaptor is disconnected with a slight delay so that all other modifiers are run before it:
    [[email protected] dheart]# cat /usr/local/bin/powersave
    sleep 5 &&
    hdparm -B 254 /dev/sda

  • Arch on Asus EEE 901

    I want to submit this new thread as a continue for old Asus EEE PC thread and targeted on 901 models and similar
    I now let the admins handle that, maybe they mark this as duplicated, but please if so, create something similar. 1000 post thread is not so kind for newcomers and also if there became discuss on little bit different models.
    The best will be to create special Archlinux forum subcategory for EEE (and similars), because of its popularity.
    So I suggest continue here with discussing on EEE 901 model.
    Regards, Robert.

    So after some tweaking I have nice resulets!!!!
    I have prepared zen-sources based kernel for eeepc 901
    based on 2.6.26-zen2 (will test 27-rc later)
    package ready to install: … pkg.tar.gz
    and building essentials (the PKGBUILD still needs soome polishing in git part, but works, using prepared package is lot easyes because of GIT) … ee.tar.bz2
    So what are the results:
    1) everything working as common kernel-eee901
    2) kernel tweaks patches that comming from zen (BFQ io-sheduler, CFS tunables, 1G-lowmem, ....)
    3) tuxonice - suspend to file (dont have time to test this, will be fine if someone test that and write tutorial)
    4) "eee" module for seting FSB on eee's!
    I have tryed play with FSB settings and the results are ~10h runtime (acpi estimate) (5.2W) usable for all sort of low cpu usage. (fsb 50, low voltage, => ~400MHz) So let say 8-9h realy possible (someone should test it:) ).
    I allways test this with devices such as wlan disabled.
    fsb is set through /proc/eee/fsb and the format is "fsb divisor low/normall voltage"
    I sugest add this to start scripts
    echo 100 50 0 > /proc/eee/fsb
    I have tested various running conditions and no problem running on low voltage (not overclocked)
    fsb is no problem 50-110 (I havent tested more extreme values)
    and divisor 50 (dont know what it is exactly do)
    Notice: suspend resets fsb to default "100 50 1" so have to be reset after that

    I have been trying to set up my wifes n81 to act a modem for her asus eee. The asus eee is running on xplite(condensed windows xp.)When the phone is connected to the asus by usb cable it recognises it and seems to be trying to download drivers but eventually a ballon comes up saying that drivers could not be installed. I am assuming that the relevant "software" to download these drivers has been cropped for the xplite. Can anyone tell me how to add this missing feature or where to go from here. I have managed to pair the n81 as a modem with my laptop running full Vista and so a guess xplite is short of something. Thanks in advance. Jim

    You don't need to install anything, ath9k has been part of the kernel for a loooooong time. Rather than trying to install random drivers, you should diagnose why wireless doesn't work out of the box. The first place to look is dmesg, so after you try to connect, run dmesg and then post here it's output.

  • Finding a PKGBUILD for the kernel (for Asus EEE )

    I'm trying to build a kernel that will support the Asus Eee's non-source drivers out of the box without ndiswrapper.  I also would like to install the whole thing using my pacman.  Is there any way to get a complete PKGBUILD for this kernel?  If possible, I'd also like to get the associated patches, etc if possible.
    I'm basing my hack on some things listed here:
    I played with the CVS for awhile, but couldn't find a way to get the kernel PKGBUILD, and I'm not sure if CVS would even do this.
    After this, I'll have to compare the PKGBUILD with the config that Asus used on their kernel.  We'll see how it goes.  Thanks for any help or tips.

  • [Xorg Server] Graphics Drivers for Asus EEE 1101HA

    I just installed Arch Linux to my new Asus EEE 1101HA. Everything's fine, just Xserver starts in 1024x768 instead of 1366x768 which is really, really annoying. Which driver shall I use? Everyone's talking about Poulsbo, but it doesn't seem to be so stable (at least what I read). Or is it already reasonable stable? If not, which other drivers are available? Thanks.

    Hi skottish,
    thank you very much. I set up uvesafb & 915resolutions and it works. I just have problems with X-drivers - you wrote me in other thread that I should use fbdev and should read about it on wiki. But I can't see any reasonable info about this driver and how to set it up.
    ATM I have vesa driver (in my xorg.conf), it works, but 19 FPS is pretty low, I need something faster. With Poulsbo driver I got about 250 I think. I don't need 250 FPS, most of time I'm just doing software development, but I need something better than 19 ... so with uvesafb I can't use the "intel" driver for X? No "i810" or something similar?

    you are aware that Arch is primarily a help yourself system? Thus some simple forum search would have provided the links karol posted.
    Just continue there. If any specific questions remain, feel free to open a new thread and ask to the point.
