But whith keyboard and mouse it's great and batterie life looks improved

Linux drivers for the 3DSP 2310U Mini PCI card (that's in the V2, not the V2.1) can be obtained from ftp://3dsp.com.cn/Ubuntu/

Ubuntu 11.04

Postby don.pitchford » Wed Apr 06, 2011 11:38 pm

Hi,

I was able to install Ubuntu 11.04 beta release onto the TEGA v2.

Steps:
1. Download the 32 bit Desktop ISO image from Ubuntu.com
2. Create Startup Disk from another Ubuntu Machine (System -> Administration -> Startup Disk Creator). Use the Micro SD card. USB dongle will not work.
3. Insert micro SD card and reboot. Press F-11 to select micro SD. It is called something like unamed universal serial card.
4. Boot up and follow the options.

Everything seems to be working fine, sound, touch screen, EXCEPT the wireless & blue tooth.

We can't even see the wireless card when you do LSPCI. Has anyone created a package for the wireless card for Ubuntu 11.04? The other link above is for a different kernal. We tried to modify the code, to override the kernal, but no luck. What we are going to try is to use a different Wireless card that has a Linux Package, something from like a dell netbook.

Appreciate any input.

Don

Hi Don,

The 3DSP driver listed above is the TEGA v2 (dellivered pre December 2010), for TEGA v2.1 (delivered post December 2010) the driver we use is different. For more details visit the TEGA v2 micro site:

http://www.tegav2.com/software.html

The new card is:

AzureWave (model: AW-NB037H) - Atheros AR90002WB-1NG Wireless Network Adapter

Please let us know how you go and if we can help.

I managed to install the new Ubuntu 11.04 on my Tega V2. Everything works except wifi & bluetooth. When I use a Wireless dongle it works. I'm hoping Tegatech will help us with a quick guide on how to get the wi-fi working.

That's great news AUZ. We don't have any assistance we can share at this stage but as soon as we do we will let you know.

I have my system triple booting, Win7 HP, Froyo, and Ubuntu 10.10 (with mostly 11.04 userspace and 2.6.38.6). The V2.1 wifi/bt module appears to work perfectly (though I have not actually used bt for anything, it shows up as detected and configured in the kernel messages). I have uTouch and ginn 2 finger gestures working as well. Compositing is working quite well, and compiz-fusion under "classic" gnome works as expected. Unity has some major usability issues without a hardware keyboard. You can't type using any of the soft keyboards (I've got onboard, gok, AND Florence) when using any of the Unity overlay searches. By far, I find florence the most featured, but also the least polished. Florence is also not usable for locked screens or at gdm login. I've been able to "get by" using a combination of onboard and florence, however, if you plan on using the Unity, you'll want to have a bt keyboard or that attractive leather keyboard case :). Standard gnome with these fixes work fine, but you lose out on the finger friendliness of Unity. Its unlikely, but some of the distribution mismatching I've been doing with userspace apps and my updated kernel may be related to some of the unity issues. Once I iron out most of the usability issues Ill build an image for other community members to easily get started with a fully working hardware baseline.
