Ubuntu on Acer Aspire one AOD250 KAV60

I have Read a lot of people on the Ubuntu Fourms having issues with Acer AOD250 with Wifi, Webcam, and Sound. Lets get down to it…

****Note: Start with a Fresh Install if you can. If not this may or may not work due to other software/drivers installed. Also I used Ubuntu 9.10, on Acer Aspire One 250 Model: KAV60 1.13.

Wifi Fix I fixed the wifi issue by using the proprietary STA Driver After install I went into

System > Administration > Hardware Drivers

Removed B43 and Installed STA Driver Then Rebooted

Yay it works!

Webcam For this I just installed “luvcview”

sudo apt-get install luvcview

To test it I used “cheese”

Applications > Sound & video > Cheese Photo Booth

It does take 15 sec to start the video.

Yay! we got webcam!!


Download Alsa Driver and install it I used the following commands

wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/driver/alsa-driver-1.0.20.tar.bz2
tar xjvf alsa-driver-1.0.20.tar.bz2
cd alsa-driver-1.0.20
sudo apt-get install build-essential module-assistant
./configure –with-cards=all
Install it
sudo make install

Yay we got our mic
