HP Mini 1001TU works great with Ubuntu 10.04. System performs well and all Function buttons work.
In order to enable wifi you may need to install the non-free drivers (depending on your model) through “jockey” the non-free driver wizard in Ubuntu.

So i have a problem where the “start” menu is extending above my screen to where i can't see the search bar. Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you remedy this. Also would i need to install a “non-free” driver for the gpu. I'm kinda stumped and have tried installing the driver for linux mint 13 to no avail.

Thanks. :)

*EDIT* I'm sorry but I forgot to specify I am running the latest distro of Linux Mint 14 “Nadia”.

I cant get the wired connection to work on my hp mini 1001 with fedora 18

did anyone have this issue and solve it?

Edson Watanabe, 2012/01/03 01:59

I have a problem with webcam on ubuntu 11.10.

Johan, 2011/11/20 16:54

I solved the problem just by selling the HP Mini and buy me a Asus EeePC 1005PE, everything works out of the box with minor issues, glad I got rid of that stupid HP Mini!

Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat did not work on my Compaq / HP Mini 110c, so I was a bit worried, if Ubuntu 11.4 Natty would work.

But it does: I run it in “Classic” mode (an option you can choose on login), with all visual effects switched off - and have no issues at all with the proprietary Broadcom drivers, that used to pose problems in older editions. Sound, Mic, Wifi, Skype - everything works just fine.

The desktop looks clean, clear, simple, and even as the computer-illiterate person that I am, it is much easier to use than windows, and no problem to switch to it from mac.

I had trouble with CentOS and few problems with Ubuntu on my 110c:

I also had PuppyLinux running on it.

The sound problem is solved by installing a new Linux kernel. It had a Alsa driver bug…

I'd be very happy if my internal cardreader would start to work though…. (works fine via an USB reader) Ubuntuy 10.04/Linux Mint 9

Johan , 2010/07/26 15:44

Next to the sound problem on the netbook is the fact that the built in SD card reader does not seem to function in my Mini 110 under Ubuntu/Linux Mint. I have not seen any mentions of this anywhere yet! If this cannot be solved, I am really considering to sell my brand new mini with Atom 450 processor and buy an Asus, as I had not any issue with my 910!

Johan , 2010/07/26 18:14

By the way, I'm talking Ubuntu 9.10 Final and Linux Mint 9

Installing from Karmic Koala daily distribution ISO (9.10) everything works, even the SD card reader. I was having issues with Jaunty and the lan port, and never did make that work. The HP 110 1030NR, which I have, works flawless with the Karmic 9.10 beta dated 11/2009. Full support for everything.

I am dual booting with XP and grub installed and handled the booting flawless. As well as the partitioning, which came off without a hitch, cutting the drive in equal sized partitions.

Hope this info helps someone ake the decision to install on the HP, it is a much more usable OS than the XP that came on it. I'll eventually repartition to remove the XP all together as I never boot into it any more.

I had a similar problem with sound on the HP mini 311. I had sound through the headphones but not through the speakers. Alsa 1.0.018 was not properly identifying the sound hardware. The solution was to compile a newer version of Alsa than Jaunty uses (1.0.21). There were very good instructions here:

After upgrading Alsa and rebooting I was greeted with the welcome sound of bongos coming through the speakers.
