Does anyone here know anything about Linux on Samsungs?

My previous post got few replies. Looking down the list, I see the last ten posts this year got a total of 7189 views but only 4 replies. That suggests this forum contains a lot of people who would like linux to run on their Samsung, but almost nobody who has any information how to do that. Am I rig...

N220 - has any one got any distro working 101%

I have an N220 dating from 2010. I've tried many distros, 7 or 8, none work properly. Mint nearly works, but the internet stops working after a dozen or so pages are loaded and I have to re-boot the whole machine. Also there are problems with videos, with audio, and of course the backlight problem. ...

Skype mic problems and mixer problems on N220

Since I re-installed Lubuntu recently, the microphone volume on Skye is very, very low. In a test call I can hardly hear my own voice. This is true whether or not I set Skype to "let Skype control mixer." All sound devices are set to "default" and the Skype drop-down offers 10 or 12 options, far too...

Re: Anyone successful with wireless on an N220 out of the bo

Lubunu works!! I tried 15 or 20 distros, good fun, and the ones that worked were either pure Ubuntu or net-book friendly Lubuntu. The netbook works like a dream and I am very happy, thank you Linux!

Ignorant question - how do I access easy-slow-down-manager?

I just successfully installed the various samsung-tools/backlight / etc packages to fix a backlight problem and the problem seems to be completely fixed just by doing the installation. But I have a question. When I do samsung-tools -i I find I am running easy-slow-down-manager. This is a "control in...

Anyone successful with wireless on an N220 out of the box?

I am a total Linux virgin, but determined to install some distro or other on my European version Samsung N220 netbook with Realtek RTL8192 wireless network controller or die in the attempt. So far the latter seems a possibility! - as I've tried Bodhi, Mint, Knoppix, Easypeasy and Funduntu without su...
