Installation script for Amilo A1650G - Ubuntu 32bit

Postby damagedspline » Wed Aug 29, 2007 11:16 pm

The auto installation script for Amilo A1650G for 32bit Ubuntus (Feisty,Gutsy) is here.

This script has been tested on my A1650G, Please send me questions/remarks/warnings/errors if you run into any.

Features:
1) Make the hotkeys work - all of them (besides change display)!
2) Notification bubbles and Cool n' Quiet - done by info2 @ubuntuforums.
3) Make wireless work - only if you have the Atheros 5005g. I'll be happy to add Broadcom if I had testers with that configuration.

Requirements:
1) 32bit Ubuntu >= 7.04
2) Amilo A1650G or similarly hotkeyd laptop
3) internet connection

HowTo:
Open a console and run:
wget http://fscamiloa16xx.googlecode.com/files/fsca16xx.sh
chmod 755 fsca16xx.sh
sudo ./fsca16xx.sh

Wait a bit till it's Done.
Log out, Log back in and viola!

Please if you have a Broadcom based wireless card (which came with your A1650G), tell me how you made it work, I'll add it.

Again this only works on 32bit Ubuntus, I'll try fixing the hotkeys for 64bit's aswell. After each kernel update it should be rerun. I'll try to add autorecompile for acerhk so that it will be automatic.

I want to add additional laptops with similar hotkeys layouts. So far I'm familiar with Li1718 with the help of johntait and Si1520 with the help of info2 (both still in early stages).

Gutsy support has been tested with the latest tribe.

Stay tuned for updates (those usualy come in daily basis...)

Nice idea :-)

postinst_hook in /etc/kernel-img.conf would work ;-)

messing with /etc/kernel-img.conf is not good since other packages beside kernel may damage the configuration....

anyway, new script is out with auto checking.

4 script options:
1) setup - should be run once - this will make all the required adjustments and add the script for auto checking configuration
2) start - use for auto boot checking
3) stop - does nothing
4) upgrade - upgrade and install the latest script from svn

installation instructions:
wget http://fscamiloa16xx.googlecode.com/svn ... sca16xx.sh
chmod 755 fsca16xx.sh
sudo ./fsca16xx.sh setup

Upgrade feature was remove from the script.
Remove feature was added to the script.

Ubuntu gutsy recognition was changed to fit new /etc/issue.

I'm adding a lot of fixes to the svn lately.

Future plans for now - fix hibernation resume, add LinuxMint support, and fix bugs as they are traced.

try running the following commands in the terminal (programs->accesories->terminal):
Code: Select all
$ sudo echo options acerhk autowlan=1 force_series=5020 > /etc/modprobe.d/options
$ sudo echo acerhk > /etc/modules
$ sudo rmmod acerhk > /dev/null 2>&1 ; sudo modprobe acerhk autowlan=1 force_series=5020

Code: Select all
sudo echo ... > ...

Two mistakes: The output redirection won't work, because echo itself doesn't write into the file. Then there is the (usual) case that the file already contains something, ">" would overwrite the contents.
You can use this instead of the first two lines:
Code: Select all
$ echo options acerhk autowlan=1 force_series=5020 | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/options
$ echo acerhk | sudo tee -a /etc/modules

Hi, Im a newby to this forum and to linux, not even sure if this thread is still active?

I have an A1650g with broadcom wireless card that came with it, have had the machine for a few years now running xp. Decided to install ubuntu 9.04 and am very impressed with it having been a windows user all my life (to date). Anway, I cant get the broadcom card enabled but have somehow managed to get the wireless led to work when wireless button is pressed.

If you still want to test broadcom card im happy to assist and hopefully solve my little gliche also. Incendtly ive tried your script above but get the message that it is not written for my version of linux :-(

Apologies for arriving to the party late, not the first time.....
