Jonas Kvale: that was one fast boot.
Jonas Kvale: Awesome! One thing I really like about Ubuntu is that it usually detects all drivers perfectly, usually wireless is the only issue if you have any problems at all.....
Patrice Maziéro: Hi dude, thanks for the share, i'm looking for a ASUS S300CA, I hope it will work as well as yours with Ubuntu. Don't forget to share your install informations to the community
at ubuntu / asus laptop (sorry i cannot post an adress).
For my part I will wait a while until Ubuntu 14.04 is released, to get Mir, last kernel and better support on new hardware, specifically touch screen.
Jack Elliott: The screens native resolution is 1366x768 going above that will cause issues.
Tikvanaya: Does multi-touch and stuff work? It would be cool seeing ubuntu programs with multi-touch.
Haikal Pribadi: HI, may I know what was the resolution you got with the ubuntu installed? the Windows 8 that comes with it gives 1366x768, but I'm quite sure that on ubuntu the screen itself can support up to 1920x1080.
barbatusimperator: Thanks for posting.
Aamir Sanwari: MASTER!!!!!
This is exactly what i was looking for. I have a Vivobook S300E.
Can you please tell me whether you installed any special drivers for the touchscreen to work? Or any other drivers in general to get everything to work?
moumoumouful: The touchscreen zoom doesn't work :(
postal2199: awesome!! thanks for the demo!
Joel Fergusson: How good is the battery life?
jspin72: cnet claims this laptop has a flakey touchpad and poor battery life, but that's with windoze 8. how is it with ubuntu?
Exxo: Thats impressive. I'm debating on swaping mine with an ssd. Can I ask exactly which one you bought? :)
Joseph170: it be nice if ubuntu ever had better touch support
Akash Ramani: Can you show the points at which the touch is not working fine?
Adam Halperin: what wifi card does it have, and does the wifi card support packet injection (i'd be using this to test my wifi security in my house)
bluesangel75: Nice. What about Ubuntu 13.04 ? Did you upgrade / reinstall ?
Michaël Pedneault: Hi, do you think you could post a detailled procedure to explain all the changes you made? I wouldn't know which SSD to buy and how to replace and get it to work for instance.
Thanks in advance,
ffuentese: Which are the exceptions?
Kleverson Royther: Here is what I did witha Vivobook S400CA.
I loadedWubi and asked it to install that tool that'd enable booting from the USB. Rebooted it, the W8 bootloader showed up and Ichose, in advanced settings, to boot from a thumb drive. It worked effortlessly.
lazarusx: I just picked up an Asus s200 and installed Ubuntu 12.04 but im having an issue with the touchpad. If i rest one finger on the button and use my other finger to move the mouse the cursor becomes locked in place.
Theres a thread about it on ubuntuforums but theres no solution.
Did you have this problem? It's driving me insane, thankyou!
Александр Кшенников: Greetings. How did you do scrolling in the browser. I'm in so doing, highlights the text. Tell me how to adjust?
future62: Yea this
I can already see some issues with button sizes. Everything is too small
raghav1996: can u pls make a video on how to install ubuntu ?
also ..how does the 24gb ssd work here ..? are you dual booting ?
Groud Frank: Had you had any problems with the laptop so far? I am talking about hardware issues. I wanna know if it is a reliable computer
Nethfel: Thanks for the video, you mentioned "Even the touchscreen works great with some exceptions." What kinds of exceptions have you run into with regard to the touch screen under ubuntu?
Daniel Cabrera: Thanks
TheTruthGER: You need to disable Secure boot in BIOS
TheTruthGER: Hi Adrian, you need to go to into your UEFI-Firmware (BIOS) and disable Secure boot and enable Legacy Support for USB-Drives. Then it should boot without any Problems.
Daniel Cabrera: I'm trying to install ubuntu, using live USB amd64 version, enabling CSM and optex on the boot, but after I hit "Install Ubuntu"... the screen goes blank... were you able to install it?
ayush joshi: To get the ethernet cable you need to install the module alx, it does not come out of the box in ubuntu , it will be available from linux kernel 3.8 , to get it now instal compat-wireless
ayush joshi: you need to disable fast boot and enable CSM boot ....
MusicIan423: I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my Vivobook of the same model... and it gets WAY hotter than on Windows. Did you have this problem?
InnocenceExperience: If you still need help, maybe I could go look in my bios to give you directions.
InnocenceExperience: This might not be helpful but I'll tell you what I remember without looking at it. I had to disable secure boot first of all- you have to do that on a windows 8 machine or it just wont boot into anything else. Then on the list of boot options, I changed the second option- usb- to the first option so that it would automatically boot into what was on the usb the next time I started the computer. Then it just booted into ubuntu on my memory stick and I installed it once I was on it.
TheSoltreas: can I ask what BIOS settings you used for the install? I get stuck after GRUB2 menu (click "install", goes to a blank screen, nothing happens...).
TheSoltreas: Hi - can I ask what BIOS settings you used to boot from the USB drive? I get to the GRUB2 menu, but none of the options ("try ubuntu without installing", "install ubuntu", etc) seem to do anything.
I have fast boot disabled in BIOS. but am wondering what else I must be missing for it to not proceed with the install...
TroyWolfVideos: I installed the Grab and Drag 3.1.2 Firefox extension and now I have touch scrolling in Firefox at least. This extension adds mouse functionality primarily, but also gave me one finger touchscreen scrolling. With the mouse, you get the momentum where the screen scolls after you release. With my finger, there is no momentum, but still very useful and convenient.
TroyWolfVideos: Whoa! Did the touchscreen flick to scroll just work on the ASUS? I have an HP Spectre Ultrabook and am playing with Ubuntu 12.10 (USB flashdrive boot). Touchscreen is working right out of the box, but the flick scrolling does not...and that is one if the best parts of touch screen UI. I'm searching for how to get this working, but nada so far....so wondering if it's a case of some hardware simply supports it....like your ASUS?
InnocenceExperience: Hey I'm on my new asus vivobook on ubuntu but I can't scroll web pages. If I try to, it just highlights the text. Any help would be appreciated.
NICKLULZON: What driver did you use for your touch screen?
Alexander Hochreiter: I have a special question dear Sir,
as far as i can remember, the HP tm2 i once had, had a wacom touchscreen built in.
There was a problem when you rotated the screen's output orientation for 180° for example, the X11 did't rotate the touchscreen input events as well.
So you touched the (rotated) upper edge of the screen, and X11 said you touched to lower edge of the screen (= the not rotated upper edge).
I wanted to ask you, if this is still the case?
Douglas Galetti Ribeiro: If you have any issues using dual boot as I had, install Boot Repair. It does the job very well and it is also very simple to use.
Novelty3D: If you had the time would you mind doing a tutorial for putting in the SSD and loading Ubuntu onto it. That'd be really helpful!
ayush joshi: I am not the original poster of this video and these are my first couple of posts, I have seen ppl with issues about this , so I helped here. My wired lan does not work OOTB, so just posted the solution.
philgomes: Wait! You told me the other day that your wired connection *did* work! I bought this notebook on that basis!
ayush joshi: just check that in the drivers atheros there is a module alx to compile before installing compat-wireless, newer versions have the folder but it is empty, older ones will contain the driver in that folder.
ayush joshi: 3. Wired lan not working: the alx module required for this device is new and still under testing , it was added to the latest kernel 3.8 which was just released as mainline yesterday, until then you can use compat-wireless drivers and install the alx module for the gigabit lan and then it should work fine. Downloand the stable version of compat-wireless preferable version 3.6 as newer ones removed alx.
