Fujitsu Amilo L1310G

Introduction

This is a guide to running Linux with the Fujitsu Amilo A1310G laptop. This INTEL based laptop is a laptop with basic performance. The Amilo L1310G is not recommended for Linux due to that the wireless card must be enabled using software (which is not available on Linux) and that the processor cooling fan stops working after one or two minutes from startup.

This guide is intended to provide you details on how well this laptop works with Linux and which modules you need to configure. For details on how to actually install and configure the required modules have a look at our guides section for distribution specific instructions.

Notes

Tested with Ubuntu 8.04 and openSUSE 11.0. Since the built in Wireless LAN cannot be enabled from Linux, an external PCMCIA card can be used for WLAN access. Since processor cooling fan stops working after a few minutes the laptop overheats and shuts down.

Summary

Unfortunately, since the processor cooling fan control is not working in Linux the laptop cannot be used for Linux. Since the Amilo L1310G cannot enable WLAN other than via proprietary SW in windows, the built-in WLAN card cannot be used.

If you use this laptop you'll want to have this linux bug fixed:

I just installed xubuntu 12.04 lts on this thing.
USB mouse and storage works, so does the cpu fan.
I don't know about wifi, it seems broken on this particular “specimen”, since it didn't work on window$ either, so I didn't try to make it work.

MATT, 2012/12/14 15:33

Wifi works on linux mint 10 and 13 but there is a problem with the USB ports they do not pick up flash drives or HHD's, usb mouse is too slow to use. If anyone knows any way i can get the usb ports to work well i will be very thank full, thanks.

Marin, 2012/12/14 16:42

Sorry,Matt!

I never tried other distros except Ubuntu, so I'cant help you about your problems.
I'm still on Ubuntu 10.10 an still having war with many problems.
I tried to install Ubuntu 12.04 but failed.
It seams that time passed fon our laptops, we wont too much from them, and they just can't give more that alreday give.

MATT, 2012/12/14 19:34

Thanks for the reply, it's ok to use but is a little long-winded using it on linux mint as the usb won't work, but i run a home network so i can transfer files from there, also the touchpad works fine so its not all bad, do you know of anymore distros that sort of work other than ubuntu, thanks.

Iskušao sam i Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit.
Ponaša se OK, ali ne i odlično.
Česti problemi:
-printer ne sluša, ne odrađuje zadatke ili ih odradi dopola
-document viwer ne daje print preview za pdf dokumente i slike
-flash problem
-kod otvarnja više tabova mozzilom zaledi se ekran
-problemi i sa downlodanjem flash filmova
-jednom grub error, nisam mogao da podignem sistem jer se razletio file system
-zaleđivanja ekrana i kad nije preopterećen procesor
-

Marin Mijalić, 2012/05/18 09:10

Ubuntu 10.10
-kod programa za snimanje desktopa problemi, predugo sprema snimljeno
-google Earth neupotrebljiv
-pdf dokumenti- kad ih otvara Inkspace nema potrebne fontove pa ih zamjeni sličnima
-ne mogu s Ubuntu alatima snimiti desktop kad radim u Virtualboxu
-Open office nije previše kompatibilan sa dokumentima u MS Officu pa o ako ih mislim printati ili ispunjavati moram kroz VB i XP

Iskušao sam na Amilo L1310g Linux Ubuntu 9.10 i naišao na hrpu problema. Em nije htio da se spoji na internet, em se pregrijavao i usporavao. Internet sam sredio tako da sam router resetirao i vratio na tvorničke postavke, a ugrađena wireless kartica nije vrijedila ni za Windowse pa sam kupio novu externu Railink koja radi super na 54Mb/s.
Što se pregrijavanja tiče poslušao sam upute sa njemačkog foruma koji kaže da se pregrijava jer se ventilator procesora isključi nakon 3 minute. Ali postoji rješenje i sa 4 naredbe se to poravi uz obavezan restart.
SAd radi dobro, ali još ga testiram,vidjeću tek za koji dan kako će se ponašati.
I kupujem mu još RAM-a, sad ima dvije pločice po 256Mb. Zamjeniću ih sa dvije po 1GB ddr soddim 333 mgz

Bežićni optički miš: Pleomax MOC-3158
Wireless kartica Railink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI

           LINUX Iskustva  - UBUNTU 9.10 32-bitna verzija 


Napomena: Kad terminal zatraži potvrdu neke naredbe upisivanjem passworda, iako se ne vidi da se kuca niti se pomiče ona crtica pasword se prihvaća, samo udri ENTER.

1.problem : Usporen pregrijan laptop razlog: ventilator procesora se ne vrti pa se pregrijava.

         Rješenje: Ukucati u termenal sljedeće naredbe:


sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

U otvorenom prozoru se pojavi gdje piše ovo:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash”
ručno ukucaj ili copy/paste acpi.power_nocheck=1 da postane:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash acpi.power_nocheck=1”
Spremi I izađi:
Sad u Terminal upiši
sudo update-grub

   Restartaj i ventilator će raditi. Temperatura procesora će mu biti između 50-65 stupnjeva. To je ok.   


2.problem Internet se neće spoji
Rješenje: Pored polja za internet veze nude se neki drajveri koje u sebi automatski ima ubuntu. Instalirao sam ih I automatski je prepoznao sve modeme u laptopu. Restartao sam router na tvorničke postavke. Odmah proradio internet . Wireles takođe. Nisam uključio nikakvu WEP ili WAP zaštitu. Radim bez nje.
3.problem Spor internet, kad otvaram slike u Mozzili samo sive polja
Rješenje: ušao sam u router I isključio firevall (kvaačica na off). Internet poletio.

4.problem ugrađeni wirreles atheros se svako malo sam od sebe gasi.
Rješenje: otvorio sam laptop I izvadio ga van. 2 žićice na koje je bio utikan sam oblijepio izolir trakom. Sad radi samo na railink wireless kartici. Besprijekorno.

5.problem Kmail šalje poruke ali ne prima poruke razlog: sending host treba staviti od davatelja usluga, ako je to kao kod mene T-com onda upiši mail.t-com.hr ne onaj od gmaila ako imate njihov email.
6.problem Ne mogu instalurati programe sa .exe extenzijom.

         Rješenje instalirati Wine I kroz njega ide instalacija. Ne funkcionira ni ovo uvijek niti za sve pregrame, meni nije htio npr bs player. Potražiti zamjenske linux programe


7.problem. U Skypu ne prepoznaje ni web cameru ni microfon ni slušalica razlog Skype ih očita samo ako su ukopčani prije nego se skype pokrene.
Rješenje: Ako nema zvuka kad ih prepozna treba to podesiti u settings- video devices ili audio devices I u ubuntu gdje je na ekranu ikona za zvuk desni klik-sound preferences-hardware ili input za microfon. Samo znači što koristiš I odmah testiraj. Samo se bojim da ne pamti promjenu , nego nakon svakog restarta treba ponoviti.
Napomena: Linux verzija skypa nema u sebi opciju za videocall ali ipak kad nas netko nazove može nas I vidjeti I čuti kao I mi njega, ali nas on mora zvati videocall.

8.problem. Printer nema klasično sučelje ko na windowsima. Kako printati? Ubuntu ga prepozna I ponudi instalaciju drivera. Ispis je ok, ali sa manje opcija ispisa. Za scaner treba ući u aplication-grafics-xsane scaner. Scanira se preko njega, opet sa manje opcija, ali radi.

9.problem. Tucan ne downloda linkove s mediafire. Razlog oni nisu free već sa nekom zaštitom
rješenje kristiti direktan download ili neki drugi downloader

10.problem Virtual box OSE ne podržava USB.
Rješenje trebaš Virtualboxe PUEL koji podržava.
http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/VirtualBox_PUEL


11.problem. Google Earth prespor.

          Rješenje: provjeri repozitorije I ako treba ugradi ih I nadogradi ih  RDFM


12.problem Open Office nudi ociju spremanja u osd koju MS office u praksi ne podržava.

         Rješenje:  spremi ih sa Spremi kao I odaberi neku od MS verzija. U teoriji se poklapaju izvrsno, u praksi 99% pa ako je dokument knap  jedan  list možda mu se doda još jedan red pa prijeđe u drugi.

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

edit this line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=“acpi.power_nocheck=1”


then:
sudo update-grub

Rasmus, 2009/11/11 10:11

In Karmic you just have to do

sudo iwconfig wlan0 txpower auto

to get the WLAN to work.

lebbok, 2008/12/29 15:33

I am running Ubuntu 8.10. You can get the fan to work if you d/l the latest kernel and add a switch in the grub menu.

acpi.power_nocheck=1

This allow the fan to kick in at the trip point. Be aware that sometimes the fan still does not kick in but this is 1 out of 10 boots.

The wifi does work out of the box, but the LED does not come on.
