Wireless Control not available - Xubuntu 12.04 on NB30

Postby mark_orion » 26/05/2012, 18:11

I am unable to control the wireless on my Samsung NB30 netbook. I am always getting a popup "wireless control not available". I tried all combinations of Kernel rtl8192 module and ndiswrapper loaded windows driver with samsung-laptop or easy-slow-down-manager, but I am always getting the popup when pressing Fn F9.
All other Samsung controls work fine.

[SOLVED] Wireless Control not available - Xubuntu 12.04 on N

Postby mark_orion » 27/05/2012, 12:38

Here is how I got both wireless switching and proper backlight control working:
1. I am using the kernel rtl wireless drivers, so no ndiswrapper etc. installation is needed.
2. Install samsung-tools, samsung-backlight and samsung-laptop from the PPA
3. Comment out the first line in /etc/modprobe.d/samsung-backlight.conf so that samsung-laptop is no longer blacklisted:
#blacklist samsung-laptop
4. reboot machine
