Re: Battery life extender 80%

This is claimed by the Lithium batteries manufacturers, so why not believe them?
It's a matter of chemistry and physics.

Re: Let's add support to other Samsung netbooks

Well, it's just a useless key combination: you already get the € symbol with the "Alt Gr" + "E" combination.

Re: Let's add support to other Samsung netbooks

Thank you very much for your answer, which is not late at all: I was not even expecting one before the 10.04 official release! I'm quite happy that the wise opinion of a specialist like you is , for the time being, the same as the opinion of a "beotian" like me. All the problems I had with the 9.10 ...

Re: Let's add support to other Samsung netbooks

@voria: I have not enough knowledge to understand the technical issues dealt with/improved/etc..which will come into force with Lucid Lynx. Could you, without being too "technical", please explain whether, for a "simple end-user" as i am one, it will bring real benefits to switch from 9.10 to 10.04 ...

Re: New application's coming: Samsung Tools!

So, a french translation is now available on Launchpad.
Sometimes, translation is perhaps not the best, as original sentences and/or expressions are shown out of context.
I will post you a PM about a few things for which I was in doubt when translating.

Re: Let's add support to other Samsung netbooks

@AMvis: Nice to read you made it in the end! Luckily my lack of knowledge prevents me to mess up my installation trying to make changes I am not able to manage properly, and as I am not really fond of installing again Ubuntu... So I stay with the 2.6.31-19 kernel from voRia's repository..the more as...

Re: Battery life extender 80%

Hello, This is done through the BIOS settings. Restart your machine and when the SAMSUNG logo appears, strike the F2 key (well, F2 on an N510, I do not know iif it's the same on all SAMSUNG netbooks..). Once in the BIOS, select the "Advanced" page with the horizontal arrows. In that page go down to ...

Re: Let's add support to other Samsung netbooks

Re: Let's add support to other Samsung netbooks

Hi voRia, I added Option "EnableACPIHotkeys" "false" in the xorg.conf file and rebooted. It did not change anything to the lack of actual brightness control, meaning the Fn/UP&DOWN let the brightness bubble appear and change the index it shows., but nothing else. So, I am wondering if " EnableACPIHo...

Re: Let's add support to other Samsung netbooks

I just forgot in the previous message the /etc/X11/xorg.conf content:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24
EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
EndSection
