Notes

2013-11-09 Shaun 'intel' Miner - using ASUS G75VW

All the hardware in the device works out of the box. NVIDIA GPU can be used with either noveau or the NVIDIA proprietary driver. Unfortunately my keyboard backlight is faulty, so I cannot test that

2014-17-02 Kai - a way to enable backlight control

After installing the proprietary nvidia-driver it should be possible to adjust brightness by running the command 'nvidia-xconfig' to generate the xorg.conf file and then add 'Option “registryDwords” “EnableBrightnessControl=1”' in the Section 'Section “Screen”' in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

2014-25-04 Kai - a way to use the subwoofer with the kernel version 3.11 or newer (e.g. used in Ubuntu 12.04.4)

No additional programs are needed (in Ubuntu 12.04.4). Just open a terminal and run the command “alsamixer”. You can navigate with the arrow keys to the field called “Bass Speaker” (the full name is not always shown, it might be called “Bass Spe” if the window is too small) and turn up the volume using the arrow key up. Then you can quit alsamixer using the Esc-key.
Note: This will only work out of the box if Ubuntu 12.04.4 was newly installed and not upgraded (the kernel of 12.04.1 is too old and will usually not be upgraded to 13.11)

Running in Fedora 20 x64 with SSD in non secure boot

Problems with multi touch touchpad, two fingers to scroll up & down fine but there's no pinch-in/out feature available to zoom in/out, and also three and possibly four finger detect.
Everything else working great after install, including subwoofer, backlit keyboard.
The nVidia drivers had to be downloaded, I uninstalled any generic drivers before install w/out restart till install of new drivers, no problems there. Screen brightness, power, wifi, bluetooth are working after install.
The last thing that does not work right just yet is secure boot with grub2, I think I need to install windows 8.+ $t and then install Fedora and not to touch first partition only for boot or something.

Correct me if I'm wrong and please provide some tips on about touchpad and secure boot.

Ken G., 2014/02/15 06:06

I have a G75VW and am running Ubuntu 13.10 using the KDE interface. I've been able to both enable and graphically control my main speakers AND subwoofer following the instructions on this page: http://howto.blbosti.com/2010/04/ubuntu-make-alsa-default-instead-of-pulseaudio/ . Howver, I've only been able to get the panel applet to work in KDE, not Gnome or Unity.

I've found the problem with the subwoofer is that the default multimedia system, PulseAudio, cannot use it. ALSA, however, can. Use either gnome-alsamixer or xfce4-mixer, I've tried both successfully. Kmix is used by KDE and gives full control. I would recommend following the advice under the 'UPDATE' heading at the bottom of the page that shows how to disable PulseAudio instead of removing it.

Does not work still… i don't think it does any more

Stephen Michalski, 2014/01/30 14:39

Distribution: Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS

After all updates have been applied post-installation, the only hardware that does not function as it should is the internal sub-woofer and the backlight for the display. The internal sub-woofer simply does not output sound, and has no control for it in the sound settings. Updating to a newer kernel will enable the sub-woofer, but will not enable control for it. The backlight brightness adjustment for the display does not function, either through the Brightness and Lock settings or the function keys that control it. Also, when the laptop is closed but still on, the machine will not resume after opening it back up and has to be restarted in order to continue use.

Mark Lines, 2013/10/20 16:03

After updating the bios to 223, I installed Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon with the nVidia 3.13 proprietary driver and the screen brightness function keys did not work out of the box. The keyboard illumination would be off after a boot until I turned the light down and then back up. Installed Cinnamon 2.0.2 and everything worked right away. I can't be happier.

Jesus Pereira, 2013/08/04 13:53

I tried every version of Ubuntu on my G75VW-AS1. None worked. After first install it froze on the login screen. Had to hard boot a couple of times. Still no go. Tried Kubuntu 13.04 and it is working except there is no sound through the headphone jacks. Not technically inclined, but willing to learn from any help that I can get. Please. I want Ubuntu to really work on my system. I use mine for Blender work and win7 got all wonky on me and I lost video. Even after a factory reboot. I want to get Ubuntu to work on my system please. Sorry for long post. Thank you in advance.

Colin King, 2013/07/09 05:17

I bought this laptop about a month ago. Although it took some time to work out all of the bugs with the audio, keyboard, and backlights, I am quite happy with results.

I have been able to get everything working almost perfectly in Arch (Linux 3.9.9-1, NVIDIA 319.32-2):

- So far, I have not noticed any flickering or other display glitches when using HDMI and VGA outputs. I'm not sure why others have complained about this, perhaps they were running an older NVIDIA driver. I have not yet tried the Thunderbolt port (or whatever it is). Compositing, 3D acceleration, and multiple monitors work fine.

- The display backlight works in KDE. There is a strange issue in Cinnamon where it only works after a suspend/resume cycle.

- The keyboard backlight works. KDE does not seem to include any support for keyboard backlights, but Cinnamon does. I got it working in KDE using sysfs and xbindkeys. It requires the asus_nb_wmi kernel module.

- All hotkeys except for Fn-F5/F6 (display backlight) work. This includes sleep, wireless, keyboard backlight, screen on/off, touchpad on/off, mute, volume up/down, external display switch, Fn-C, Fn-V. The Fn-space and RoG logo button next to the power button both map to the same key, which in Windows is used to bring up CPU frequency controls.

- Nouveau does not work at all. Loading it causes the screen to go blank until reboot (keyboard and everything else still work). Use the proprietary NVIDIA driver instead.

- Volume control is a bit glitchy. At first, I had to mute/unmute the bass speaker to get any sound, and headphones were not working properly. This seems to have gone away on its own, possibly from deleting my pulseaudio config.

- 802.11n, Bluetooth, SD card reader, USB 3.0, gigabit ethernet, and optical disc work perfectly.

- I have not yet tested the microphone jack.

- UEFI secure boot is easy to disable. There are also options to add your own keys but I have not tried them.

- There is only one issue I have run into so far: Occasionally after cold boot or resume, the cooling fan will run full speed and the battery shows as 0% with a flashing charge LED. I have not run Windows 8 enough to notice whether or not it is specifically a Linux issue, or something else like a firmware bug or faulty battery. I currently resolve this by powering off and temporarily removing the battery.

- I have verified most of this on a separate, identical G75VW-DH71 which I returned after discovering physical damage.

Robert P, 2013/05/21 14:38

Never posted here before-

Just to put this out there to you guys
in KUBUNTU 13.04, in order to get the backlight brightness working, I had to change xorg.conf, but NOT GRUB. changing grub caused errors and i had to fix it from recovery terminal
(also at one point i deleted xorg.conf entirely and ran without it and everything ran just dandy, except for no brightness controls)

1. remove xorg.conf (renaming works)
2. run nvidia-xconfig and re-generate a new xorg.conf
3. change the device section so it looks like this-

[code]
Section “Device”

  Identifier     "Device0"
  Driver         "nvidia"
  VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
  Option "NoLogo" "True"
  Option "registryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1"

EndSection
[/code]

and if you're wondering, my grub looks like-
[code]
GRUB_DEFAULT=0
#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_TIMEOUT=3
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=””
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=””
[/code]

(note i have it set to not show any splash on load, just the text)

this has the slider for power options working fine
(Fn keys still do nothing though)

Robert P, 2013/05/21 14:43

Just did a sleep and back to work (fn+f1), and that causes the fn keys to work, however the keyboard brightness goes to zero and wont light back up

David Grayson, 2013/04/29 00:49

I have a G75VW-DH72 that I have been running Arch Linux on. I tried the proprietary nvidia driver (back in December 2012) and found that the HDMI and VGA outputs suffered from occasional black flickering, and maybe some other problems. Switching to the open source nouveau driver fixed that problem, and nouveau seemed be OK for a while. Recently though, I think nouveau has been crashing a lot. The reason that I think nouveau is crashing is because I will be in Gnome 3 and then suddenly the graphics will just entirely freeze, or the graphics will kind of keep working but big rectangles of various X windows will start displaying the wrong thing. Sometimes I am able to fix the problem by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F2 and running systemctl stop gdm and systemctl start gdm. Recently, Linux has been crashing in this way every hour or two.

I like to give presentations from Linux, so I need the HDMI output to be good and I need the system to be reliable (not crash). Has anyone else encountered either of these problems and found a solution?

krnkris, 2013/04/26 11:56

NEW about LCD backlight on G75VW:

krnkris, 2013/03/29 06:48

Brightness settings work perfectly after installing the latest version of nvidiabl and bios 223 but the fn keys still dont work at all. The other methodes not working anymore. I can change the brightness using the slider in system settings and by command line but the keys are not working still.

Evan, 2013/02/14 01:47

It's been mentioned here already, but I'm going to repeat it for emphasis:

Before installing Ubuntu on an Asus G75V, go into your BIOS settings (by hitting F2 immediately after power-on) and set “Launch CSM” to “Enabled”.

I couldn't get graphics to work in the Ubuntu LiveCD at all until I changed that setting. After turning on CSM, it's all been smooth sailing. (And I wish I'd read this comment thread a little more carefully before I spent twelve hours figuring out what David Grayson already posted two months ago…)

I'm using a pre-release build of Ubuntu 13.04, with nvidia-current. It's working great so far.

Roberto, 2013/02/02 12:25

OK, to make the external subwoofer work edit/create /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and add these option:

options snd-hda-intel model=asus-mode4

Denis, 2013/03/04 22:00

Didn't work for me. Did it for anybody?

Dylon, 2013/03/10 18:46

It worked for me. I don't have any audio controls for the subwoofer, but it works.

Xo3ymnI, 2013/01/29 22:08

Im just going to put this out there. I have a newer G75VW and if you can get past the ubuntu eye candy and fear of a command line, look into Gentoo. You can compile a linux system specifically for your hardware. Tons of documentation on it as well. Compiling on this thing with 16G of ram and an i7, really doesnt take long at all. I would really recomend looking into it since most laptops out there are using onboard graphics, even though most of them have nvidia stickers on them, theyre still soddered to the motherboard. So finding support for new hardware, isnt easy for laptops using PCIe. Also, if your planning on dual booting windows 8, the best way to do so.. is format your entire HDD. Download 7 if you really need windows and use that, you might even want to change the bios settings as it will most likely help you out a lot. Oh yeah, and that ubuntu your installing comes preloaded with some nice tracking software, spyware etc.

Roland, 2013/01/20 15:04

Guys, after a long battle I was able to install Ubuntu 12.10 on my Asus G75 Notebook, making a triple boot alongside with Windows 7 and 8. Now I'm confronting another issue. When I update the system, and restart, the screen is completely black and I can hear the sound of the login home screen, and then I got an error related to GPU. I thought that the update of the video driver would resolve the problem, but it didn't. Please, if anyone has the same issue, or know how to fix it, I need some help.
Thanks in advance.

krnkris, 2013/01/21 08:15

Good day Roland,

Try the UBUNTU Bottrepair.
It helped for me to set the Win7 & Ubuntu 12.10 in the right way.
It botts UEFI as well.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair

Before that
Just set up your BIOS so that it boots your Ubuntu disc instead of your Windows disc.
May be it solves your problem without bootrepair.

Jean-Pascal Milcent, 2013/01/06 00:03

If the F3 and F4 hotkeys don't work, you can try to install the g73-keyboard-backlight-sh script : https://github.com/ktoso/g73-keyboard-backlight-sh/

That works for me on openSUSE 12.2 with kernel 3.4.11-2.16-desktop x86_64 and Nvidia driver 310.19.

xo3ymnI, 2013/02/06 21:42

I'm not sure on other distro's, but i know that when i buckled and used debian-sources with blacklisted nouvearu before compiling the kernel, installing xorg-x11 it stuck in the 318.10 binary nvidia drivers without a complaint.

krnkris, 2012/12/18 12:22

Ok the suspend /F1/ does the trick as well.

If you was done this before:
1) Add the line Option “registryDwords” “EnableBrightnessControl=1” in the appropriate Device section of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
2) Do sudo pico /etc/default/grub and add acpi_osi=Linux and acpi_backlight=vendor to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT variable. Press Ctrl+O to save.
3) Run sudo update-grub to rebuild grub.cfg.
4) Reboot.

After suspend and back the F5/F6 works well.

It seem it is a BIOS problem.

In Windows 7 if some people do suspend then they
stick with the same problem about F5/F6.

David Grayson, 2012/12/02 22:15

Thanks Robert! Your instructions basically worked for me except that I am using the nvidia driver (downloaded from nvidia.com) so I don't have a `Section “Device”` that looks like yours. Instead, I just added the EnableBrightnessControl line to the appropriate existing section.

Here is what I did to get the backlight working:

1) Add the line Option “registryDwords” “EnableBrightnessControl=1” in the appropriate Device section of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
2) Do sudo pico /etc/default/grub and add acpi_osi=Linux and acpi_backlight=vendor to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT variable. Press Ctrl+O to save.
3) Run sudo update-grub to rebuild grub.cfg.
4) Reboot.

I still have two issues: I have to press the brightness hotkey twice before it registers; every other keypress is ignored. When the key does have an effect, it adjusts the brightness in increments of 2 unless a menu happens to be open, in which case it adjusts it by 1.

The nvidiabl thing did not work for me at all.

I was do the same as abowe. Then I had to leaw my g75VW and closed the lid.

I come back after a while then I opened the lid and then the backlight was working with F5/F6 as it should be…

Only the onscreen display not showing…

I tried again with lid closing and after a while open it and it still working..

Hope it's helps.

Amber, 2012/12/06 06:00

After installing nvidiabl I can confirm that brightness and lock setting are working perfectly along with automatic brightness. The only things that are not working are the fn f4 & f5 keys and the subwoofer.

Amber, 2012/12/06 06:01

correction fn f5 & f6 keys

Tonny Kohar, 2012/12/05 21:04

Brightness not working on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Nvidia 304 driver
- fn F5-F6 do nothing
- Unity System Settings - Brightness and Lock do nothing

What I try
- default install (not working)
- grub acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor (not working)
- xorg.conf Option “registryDwords” “EnableBrightnessControl=1” (not working)
- combination of above not working as well

However, fn F5-F6 works in Grub Menu, but not work once in GDM or Ubuntu login screen (and desktop)

krnkris, 2012/12/17 15:01

Tonny Kohar, 2012/12/18 13:41

@krnkris

So it works in your case, if I may know, which Linux Distro are you using ? and the Nvidia driver version ? and if possible kernel version.

On my case:
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Nvidia 304.43
Kernel 3.2.0-34-generic
the above is not working.

krnkris, 2012/12/23 19:53

On my case:
Ubuntu 12.10 LTS and Nvidia 310.14
Kernel 3.5.0-21-generic
the above is working.

Amber, 2012/12/05 14:33

I installed nvidiabl and I am able to change the brightness using command line but the fn keys arenot detedcted still. Is there any solution to this. I am also not able to detect the key's id so as to set the values manually through a script. Any help would be useful.

Roland, 2012/11/22 12:41

Hi guys, I bought an Asus g75 laptop a couple months ago. I installed win7 and win8, but for the love of god I can't install Linux. I downloaded the iso and burn it, I boot from the optical drive, got a purple screen where I have all the functions of the F's keys and then comes a black screen which stands forever. Could someone tell me how to install Ubuntu on the g75vw series…
Thanks in advance…

David Grayson, 2012/12/02 19:22

Roland, I got around that kind of problem by going into the EFI settings (press F2 repeatedly while booting up) and enabling CSM (Compatibility Support Module). You should try that. The Ubuntu installer should be running at the native resolution (1920×1080), tell you how low your battery is, and successfully connect to WiFi if you do that.

Now I am struggling with flickering in the HDMI output and the backlight.

gordon daniels, 2012/12/30 17:37

David: Just got a g75vw-BHI7. Tried alot of things but could not boot ubuntu. I saw the csm setting but did not know what it did. Thank you for posting this as it allowed me to boot ubuntu and start installing.

thanks again
Gordon

The Optical Drive (Blu Ray) works for me - I can read CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. I've burned a linux-live-cd image to a DVD and it worked.

Roberto, 2012/10/25 08:11

OK, I got brightness working (thanks to mdelfede) on my G75VW with Ubuntu 12.10 and Nvidia 304.50, but should also work with Ubuntu 12.04 and Nvidia 304.48:

First I added this to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Default Device"
	Option	"NoLogo"	"True"
	Option "registryDwords"	"EnableBrightnessControl=1"
EndSection

Second I added this to my GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT (/etc/default/grub):

acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor

It should look something like this:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor"

Now just update the grub and reboot:

sudo update-grub
reboot

And now, the keys FN + F5/F6 should work :-)

David Grayson, 2012/12/02 22:15

Hello
I also have a G75 and the nvidia drivers, but when i check my xorg.conf file, its empty
any ideas?

Robert_p, 2013/02/06 16:17

I actually had to run nvidia-xconfig, which created the conf file, and followed the above instructions, and now the hotkeys change the value of the slider in the brightness applet, but that didn't work in the first place so the screen remains unchanged :P

krnkris, 2013/02/07 07:14

OK.

Try to suspend (fn+F1) and back to work, or close the lid for a while and back to work, then it should work.

Robert_p, 2013/02/11 21:03

That did the trick!
Thanks a million!

It's nice to have a companies all the way…
I had experience ubuntu from 11.04 and good… but after 11.10+12.04+12.10… always feeling bad and bad…
installed 12.10 beta 2 on G75VW both the same…
It's really take time to boot and system is so so slow… even install the drivers you can found… the same…
Is that same with you???
I'm trying new released I downloaded today… Hope it will work…

Kai, 2012/10/17 08:15

All keybord hotkeys work for me (I only had to fix the problem with the backgroundlight; I think all other hotkeys started working after a kernel update).

Someone managed to make the internal subwoofer work with the VIA VT1802?

I tried with “options snd-hda-intel model=auto” in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and “default-sample-channels = 6” in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf but nothing has changed…

I'm on Ubuntu 12.10 beta2

conroe64, 2012/10/01 21:44

suspend-to-ram was flaky and would sometimes not resume properly until I upgraded to kernel 3.4.5, but I fixed this by upgrading to kernel 3.4.5 (was using 3.0.7 before). As far as suspend-to-disk, for some reason, TuxOnIce would hang during suspend, but I got it working using uswsusp and kernel 3.5.3.

Tips from the last two months with a G75. and working NVIDIA drivers and how to workaround kms / nouveau:
subwoofer fail = you didnt download drivers / codecs most likely, and or your chosen player isnt compatable. Rythmbox with alsa use flags works fine for mine. as for Nvidia drivers and xorg files.. im not going to get technicall but listen, im using 313.18 drivers and theyre wonderfull. I'm also not nor would i ever use ubuntu and its connical spyware. I'm running funtoo with the 3.2.35 debian sources kernel as my stable os on my intel 520 SSD (128G). If you cant get the new drivers to work, blacklist nouveau drivers in /etc/modprobe.d/ and either install them after stoping x (/etc/X11/xdm stop from tty2 i believe) that doesnt work? then install a new kernel once you blacklisted the nouveau drivers, then use the old X -configure or xorg -configure NOTE! this will give you a file, if your using root it will be ~/.xorg.conf.new .. so cp ~/.xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf THEN run nvidia-xconfig. Look into pcmcia utils also, i think there is a binary distro way to use it (kernel module hotpluging). good luck, and btw, the nvidia drivers i cannot promise will be friently with ubuntu or w/e your using, though i am using a binary debian kernel and its fine so. as for the backlight keyboard.. ive no idea, i dont look at the damn thing and the light would more then likely get on my nervs and bother my eyes =/ ohhhh yeah, and after you install these drivers, nvidia-settings will let you change brightness, vibrance all that stuff. aka i can attest the driver i listed is in fact stable and fully functioning.

The card reader also works; it appears as a standard USB card reader, not as a PCI device like some laptops.

Thanks for suggesting nvidiabl, it works great.

I can verify that the webcam works at full resolution, using cheese (http://projects.gnome.org/cheese/). VGA out also works with NVidia TwinView.
