Linux Mint Debian Edition 201101 on AOA 150

Print This Post Print This Post

I started to install and run LMDE 201101 on my Acer Aspire One D150.

Changes after install:
Touchpad-In control Center-Hardware-Mouse-Enable Mouse clicks with touchpad

After suspend (lid closed) and resume there was no display. Added one line in “/usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/20-video-quirk-pm-acer.fdi” and commented out another line:

 
<!-- Aspire One 110 -->
 <match key="system.hardware.product" prefix_outof="AOA110;AOA150">
 <!--<merge key="power_management.quirk.none" type="bool">true</merge>-->
 <merge key="power_management.quirk.quirk-vbe-post" type="bool">true</merge>
 </match>

Then restarted hal with
sudo /etc/init.d/hal restart
After this change suspend/resume does work OK for display.

(see also http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-laptop-and-netbook-25/blank-screen-after-resume-from-suspend-764822/ and http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=44378 why I did this)

Now the last initial change: let the fan be controled by temperature I used the lines

>sudo su
>echo -n “enabled” > /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/mode

That’s it for now…

    Added the line
    echo -n “enabled” > /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/mode
    to /etc/rc.local before the “exit 0” line

    added an acerhdf.conf to /etc/modprobe.d/ directory:
    options acerhdf interval=5 fanon=65000 fanoff=60000

    Note: you have to use the 65000 and 60000 values as the temp is given in 1000 steps

    added sensors-applet to get current CPU temp in panel
