very interesting and knowledgeable

D-Jo, 2011/11/29 17:24

I'm using Oneiric 32 bit on the AS1410, and the internal microphone still has problems. External mic works great with both Skype and Google talk, but the internal mic doesn't nothing. I have to force Skype to start Skype with PULSE_SERVER= Strangely, I use the voice recorder with the internal mic, but when I test it in the Sound Settings I get no response.

Pat Beirne, 2011/11/30 03:59

Strangely, I find if I turn the mic-in left channel all the way up, and the right channel all the way down (to 0), I can use the mic for most apps (Skype, Audacity, etc)

Pat Beirne

D-Jo, 2011/11/30 06:13

I'll have to try that. I've heard that the Linux has some problem distinguishing between channels or something. I need to spend some time learning how it all works.

So are there some apps it doesn't work with still.

N, 2011/05/28 12:15

sorry… I meant 'mute on' (= turn off, disable)

N, 2011/05/28 11:57


I confirm internal mic is now working (but still with incredible noise).

But, does anyone know if there is a solution to mute this internal mic off ?
I can't get external mic (plugged) independant from this internal mic. I am driving crazy with this… (= both are running simultan)



Christian, 2011/01/10 12:54

great list! Well done. I went through all of the points and added them to my acer.

Only one question regarding the CPU-Temperature: The script you tell us to install keeps the CPU-temperature between 58 an 63 Grad Celsius. Is that OK? Although the CPU can stand at maximum 89 Grad Celsius (as mentioned in the scipt), it seems to be pretty high working-temperature… What would you suggest? I somehow feel better if the temperature is somewhere in the 50s, about 55. Are there any other opinions?

mdifabio, 2010/12/06 19:57

Has anyone had trouble hooking up this laptop to an external display and then closing the lid on the laptop?

I can't seem to find an option in Ubuntu to “do nothing when lid is closed”.

The HDMI and vga outputs for an external display seem to work better in Ubuntu than in Windows 7. I can't get them to work right in 7 x86 Home Premium.


gello, 2010/10/16 05:58

acerhdf module does not work , modprobe says no such device. build and install went successful.

bios 3314, ubuntu 10.10, kernel 2.6.35-22, acerhdf 0.5.24

i did not notice that it says for bios 3308 and upgraded to 3314. probably that's the reason. there is no 3308 bios on the acer site, just 3310 and one older version, forgot which.

so if you want to give it a chance at working, see it you already got 3308 bios before updating.

at the moment the only way to shut up the fan is to disconnect a AC power - it then turns off the fan for some time.

however in this case dumb ubuntu turns on the hdd saving mode which spins hdd on/off every 1 second which kills a hdd in a few weeks so if you don't want hdd killed then do 'sudo hdparm -B 254 /dev/sda' after going on battery power. I tried checking off 'spin down hard disks when possible' option in power management but it does not change this behaviour.

Steve T., 2010/10/22 16:17

Have you tried doing a clean install without running any acerhdf…I am running 10.10 64 bit, latest official generic kernel and bios, and all is fine…no real issues to speak of…

Lamegaptop, 2010/10/31 23:27

Just went through this….. and had the 'no such device' upon modprobe acerhdf. The bios 3314 is not in the source.

Had to add a line to the acerhdf.c for bios v1.3314 prior to compiling. Works great now.
Here is my /etc/modprobe.d/acerhdf.conf line for reference.

options acerhdf verbose=0 fanon=50000 fanoff=45000 interval=5 kernelmode=1

Raphael, 2010/07/26 14:49

Hello everybody; I'm Raphael, read this:

Internal Mic Solution:
1. install pavucontrol
$ sudo aptitude install pavucontrol
2. Then go to sound&video menu - PulseAudio volume control - Input device tab: down the left volume to 0%
For skype you have to uncheck the “Allow skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels”

Working 100% in my Ubuntu 10.04 :)

m, 2010/07/28 06:28

Yes but…still crappy noise ! And poor quality. Can you hold a conversation on skype in this configuration ?
It's a pity, but the best is to add external microphon.

swturpin, 2010/07/11 16:18

I am running 10.04 on my AS1410, the instructions for enabling two finger scrolling do not appear to be working…synclient settings do not save, I cannot enable the two finger scrolling in the mouse preferences section…it is disabled…

oleg, 2010/04/06 19:18

OK I figured it actually does resume after the second suspend, but it takes a lot more time - I think a few minutes before the locked session shows up. Before I had little patience and turned it off before that time passed.

Strangely, the third and further suspends are coming smoothly.

Suse showed the same behavior but it had some problems after resuming, probably because I tried suspending while booted from its live USB.

Spe, 2010/04/06 22:11

In opensuse, the suspend it is really fast. It is faster than the regular reboot. Try installing the SO. Live usb it is not prepare for it, I think.

oleg, 2010/04/05 10:32

Installed Ubintu 9.10 64-bit.
unfortunately the suspend does not work as expected.
After restoring from suspend, everything becomes very buggy and eventually the system freezes. Also you can't suspend after that.

I have removed the acer_wmi module, after which resuming from suspend stopped causing the above problem.

However, even now another problem remains. When I suspend, resume, then suspend again (after some time) and then try to resume, the system stays in black screen and does not respond to anything, so I have to turn it off by pushing the power button for few seconds.

Personally I think this is a deal breaker, unless you want to work in windows .. suspend is crucial functionality for a laptop and if it does not work 100% in linux then it can't be considered linux compatible.

Spe, 2010/04/05 16:04

The suspend works perfect in Opensuse 11.2


trr, 2010/10/22 02:33

Same issue here on Debian Squeeze - I've been trying to debug this all weekend.

Black screen on resume, sometimes works once but usually doesn't work.

Spe, 2009/12/07 06:10

Is bluetooth working in ubuntu?

In opensuse 11.2

> hcitool scan
Device is not available: No such device
Pulp, 2009/12/06 20:30

Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 64Bit :
Installs quickly and nicely from usb stick, about 10 min in total.
All hardware works, all buttons detected, sleep works, gfx acceleration is quick and smooth, video playback, sound etc, all is working fine in 9.10
To eliminate fan noise, install latest acerhdf module, which will also prolong the battery life.
If your wifi or bluetooth did not come up as icons on gnome-panel, make sure the switches behind the leds are on, play with them before fixing anything else.
If there's no sound after logging with a non-installing user, the problem is most probably in user permissions, Go to : System→Administration→users and groups and allow user to use Audio Devices.
Two-finger scroll is enabled with these :

synclient EmulateTwoFingerMinW=20
synclient EmulateTwoFingerMinZ=7
synclient VertTwoFingerScroll=1

The only problem yet: built in mic, I've been trying the alsa-snapshot for a while now to fix this problem, unsuccessfully. Skype won't work and Ekiga neither, frustrating.

Spe, 2009/12/07 05:56

What happened with the horizontal scroll?

I tried with:

 synclient HorizTwoFingerScroll=1

but it doesn't work.

Any ideas?

PatBeirne, 2010/01/18 14:11

Pulp, I think you may have meant to type:

synclient EmulateTwoFingerMinW=7
synclient EmulateTwoFingerMinZ=20

[w seems to range from 0..15 and z ranges from 0..53] Using these swapped values, my two-finger operations are much more stable. Thanks for the starting point, though.

Pigcold, 2009/11/29 23:01

In Ubuntu 9.10, you can enable the microphone by adding the following app,

sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-alsa-karmic-generic


yelvington, 2009/12/06 15:34

After installing the backport sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-alsa-karmic-generic, you may need to go into Skype's configuration and uncheck the option to have Skype automatically manage sound levels. That option, which works fine on other 9.10 setups, seems to conflict with something on the Acer.

Pigcold, 2009/11/29 07:30

I just boot my Aspire 1410 with the OpenSuse Live GNOME 11.2 CD. The microphone works within the Live CD session.

I can use the Sound Recorder to record my voice and play it back.

I will switch from Ubuntu 9.10 to OpenSuse 11.2.

Thanks, Spe.

Spe, 2009/11/23 18:29

I am using Opensuse 11.2 and everything it is working :-) Tthe microphone works too. I have not tested the bluetooth yet.

The installation was easy but I added “libata.force=noncq” before the first restart (in the grub configuration, in the installation). Otherwise It doesn't work.

I used KDE live CD (PC de 32 bits). LiveCD iso can be used to create LiveUSB:

Brian, 2009/10/28 23:34

Ubuntu 9.10 seems to work fine on this laptop.

However, PowerTop reports around 9W at idle, compared with about 7W at idle in Windows 7. The CPU is staying in the C6 power state (and also in the lowest P-state), so it's unclear why power consumption is so much higher.

anon, 2009/10/29 14:51

Does the ubuntu NBR work on this laptop? It seems like that version of ubuntu is meant for a certain type of intel processor, one which the asus 1410 doesn't have … do i have this right?

HaRDaWaY, 2009/11/01 23:12

Yes, NBR works great on this laptop, and netbook moblin remix works better!!

xdevnull, 2009/10/28 04:02

9.10 has worked flawlessly for me once I changed the ahci to ide in the bios. I have no idea how to add the libata.force=noncq to the new grub2. It has become a really baffling configuration with no nice menu.lst to edit (any help out there)?

Also the internal mic doesn't work. I think this might have something to do with PulseAudio. I wonder what driver Chakra guy above might be using? It would be nice to not have to use an external mic for Skype.

dan, 2009/11/05 03:43

to add libata.force=noncq, try the copying the required boot up information from /boot/grub/grub.cfg (lines between begin and end 30_os-prober), then do the following

sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober

above disables this script from running by grub2

gksudo gedit /etc/grub.d/40_custom

and add/paste the lines you copied before from grub.cnf. You can then modify it as you need to. Make sure you read http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1195275

aviar, 2009/11/14 23:24

Acer AS1410 has bugs in BIOS. You do not need to turn off AHCI/ACPI to run Ubuntu 9.10. Update the BIOS to the latest from Acer site before using Ubuntu Live CD or installing Ubuntu.

mathetes, 2009/10/07 20:58

Hi, I am using Chakra, wich is a liveCD of arch with kdemod and everything is working great. I had problems with my internal mic but after i reinstalled chakra (because of a non important reason) everything including the internal mic is working out-of-the-box. That's compositing, wireless (although I dont have an 'n' wifi router so I haven't tested that, sound, webcam, card reader, screen brightness, volume control with the keyboard, etc.
Another thing I haven't tested is the Ethernet connection.
I am not sure why suddendly the internal mic started to work since I didn't do a kernel upgrade, and I was using a newer kernel in my old install anyways.

I know this is not much help, but at least you know that you can get everything working, maybe with a newer release of whatever distro you are using

Pigcold, 2009/10/07 20:35

Installed Ubuntu 9.04 32 bit version, everything works except Ethernet. The wireless is only connected at 48Mbps(G spec) only with the Linksys WRT-150N N router.

The BIOS is Updated to version 3117 and the drive controller is set to IDE mode.

Compiz also works ok.

The system is updated to the latest driver and apps by the update manager, no crash or error was observed yet.

Anyone has try to install OpenSUSE on this machine yet ?

PocketSam, 2009/10/05 14:08

Just wait for 9.10. Seemes like everything would work out of the box for this release. Just 24 days left to wait!

James, 2009/10/13 04:55

Where you able to get the fan to work correctly? My is on constantly (running Kubuntu 9.10 beta current packages)

a few mixed msgs here..., 2009/09/30 14:04

Can someone confirm
Ubuntu works fine? with a few adjustments,… ethernet…?
Does Compiz work well… being a lowly Core Solo and an Intel graphics card?
Internal Mic working yet anyone?

email me if you like :)

James, 2009/10/13 05:03

what I have is everything running. Compiz works, windows wobble, ethernet and wireless work out of the box. WEP and WPA. Video quality is great, with glitch free youtube. The only gotcha for me so far is that the fan is running full speed all time…. kills battery life a bit.

itsame, 2009/09/27 12:13

Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) x86-64 works beautifully. Desktop effects work, playing youtube movies works, plugging a HDTV into the HDMI output is detected instantly and allows you to play 720P HD movies very nicely (haven't tested 1080, but 720P already used 60% of the cpu so that may be too much).

Power management works, suspend on lid close works, all function keys work with ubuntu popping up a nice transparent window to show current volume / display brightness when you change it.

The GRUB boot menu detects both the real vista install and the recovery partition as “Windows Vista (loader)”, so you have to remember that the second one is the “real” one if you want to keep vista on there. Not a big problem though.

The only real problem is the internal microphone, which I haven't been able to get to work yet.

Otherwise, everything basically works. Smoothest ubuntu install ever :)

bhardi, 2009/10/05 23:58

If you couldn't get it to even load up it seems like you may not have been doing it right. Especially since you are the only person who was unable to do so. Troll somewhere else.

fredm, 2009/11/11 14:12

anyone having any luck with the internal mic? I just put Karmic on my 1410 and all's great except for the mic :)


mike, 2009/09/27 02:41

I bought this netbook because it could handle 4GB. Windows 7 x64 runs on it beatuifly. 64-bit Ubuntu and Debian no such luck. Not even a startup screen. Linux blows. No wonder after all these years, it's still hovering at 1% of desktops. I think that's high.

mathetes, 2009/09/15 22:00

For the issues with the hard drive or anything like a really slow startup time you have to disable acpi.
Go to /etc/boot/grub/ and in the file menu.lst you have to add acpi=off (with su or sudo privileges) to the end of the line where grub starts your distro, for example i have this grub configuration right now (Here tha acpi=off doesnt fit in the same line but you should add it in the same line with a space before):

# general configuration:
timeout 5
default 0
color light-blue/black light-cyan/blue

# boot sections follow
# each is implicitly numbered from 0 in the order of appearance below

# (1) Windows

default 0
timeout 1

# (0) Arch Linux
title Arch Linux
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/3ef18233-eaca-4aa4-bbfd-c6b0ea1d6592 ro acpi=off
initrd /boot/kernel26.img

# (1) Arch Linux Fallback
title Arch Linux Fallback
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/3ef18233-eaca-4aa4-bbfd-c6b0ea1d6592 ro
initrd /boot/kernel26-fallback.img

This will disable your battery monitoring, you will not be able to adjust the screen brightness and the computer will have to be shut down with the power button

a1bert, 2009/09/30 14:17

no. do not disable acpi! just disable NCQ (libata.force=noncq)

mathetes, 2009/09/30 14:43

That fixed the problem! Thank you so much!
Now everything works except for the built in mic, no skype yet :(

So, to get everything working dont add “acpi=off” or “pci=noacpi” (As i figured out later). Instead of those add “libata.force=noncq” at the end of the line

crumpledfarm, 2009/09/13 15:56

Okay, Karmic Koala amd64 works beautifully, must be some kernel bug

Joshua Blumert, 2009/09/11 12:30

Install Ubuntu 9.04 32bit. Wireless worked fine, but I needed to download the drivers for the gigabit ethernet at http://partner.atheros.com/Drivers.aspx (AR81Family-linux-v1.0.0.10.tar.gz) and compile for my kernel. So far most of the functions work on the unit but power management is not good. Suspend is having issues. If I suspend the laptop for the OS and close the lid, the laptop immediately resumes. It only stays suspended if I leave the lid open. I tried setting power management to suspend when the lid is closed. That does not work either. Apparently, closing lid causes it to resume in all cases.

1410 User, 2009/09/18 05:24

Wireless just worked with 9.04 32bit for me…Was it not working at all or was there some problem with the default kernel driver?

1410 User, 2009/09/18 05:27

Sorry…I was being stupid (didn't read properly)

Louis Cayer, 2009/09/08 04:36

I downloaded this ISO.


My AS1410 came with a Intel Core2 Solo SU3500. I think it is not a real 64bit. It only uses HyperThreading.

jed, 2009/11/20 00:46

Are you high? What the hell does hyper threading have to do with 32 vs 64 bit architecture. How do you “imitate” architecture?

Louis Cayer, 2009/09/08 03:11

Ubuntu 9.04 failled due to the AHCI Sata driver. Go to the BIOS and swich to IDE mode. Ok.this is solved.

Gigabit ethernet driver is not detected by Ubuntu 9.04. Any sugestions?

crumpledfarm, 2009/09/08 03:55

No, system wouldn't boot at all in AHCI mode, all problems described are with BIOS set to IDE mode

aviar, 2009/11/14 23:23

Acer AS1410 has bugs in BIOS. You do not need to turn off AHCI/ACPI to run Ubuntu 9.10. Update the BIOS to the latest from Acer site before using Ubuntu Live CD or installing Ubuntu.

James, 2009/11/20 06:33

How did you update BIOS? or are you running it dual boot. I really don't want to install Vista just to upgrade my bios.

crumpledfarm, 2009/09/08 04:16

also, it looks like this link should have info on your ethernet driver


you have ubuntu 9.04 amd64 working on a us-released aspire as1410 though? If so then I think I have a faulty machine.

crumpledfarm, 2009/09/08 02:25

Installed Ubuntu 9.04 amd64, initially all functions working as reported but the system fails to survive an upgrade and reboot with the filesystem becoming corrupted irreparably. Fedora 11 amd64 announces kernel warnings and fails to mount partitions after formatting and install fails. Vista and Windows 7 seem to be working fine. Have not seen this issue reported elsewhere.

Attempted installing using a different system on the same drive and system works until drive is moved back into the machine where the filesystem is again corrupted.
