Thank you, I've updated the 'nc10-scripts' package on the repository. :)

About the locales, I have modified all the scripts to just check "fr" instead of "fr_FR", and I did it for all the other locales.

Turkish translation of cpumanager_helper.py . If the governer modes can translatable, it would be more understandable. Thanks for the development.

Code: Select all

elif language == "tr":
    popup_title = "İşlemci"
    cpu_temp = "Sıcaklık: "
    cpu_freq = "Hız: "
    cpu_governor = "Yönetim: "

I've added the cpu frequency too.

Is "Częstotliwość:" a good polish translation for "Frequency:"? I asked google and it says so :P


yes, exactly.

Thanks for all the work on the scripts, really rounds out the experience of using the UNR on the N110.

I have one little suggestion. Powertop shows the bluetooth module as still active after disabling the bluetooth with '/etc/init.d/bluetooth stop', adding an additional 'rmmod btusb' and a corresponding 'modprobe btusb' before start in the /usr/bin/btonoff.sh script seems to complete the disabling.

Mark.

I'm not sure that removing 'btusb' module is really needed in order to completely disable bluetooth. Just stopping the bluetooth service seems to kill the bluetooth radio too.
Anyway, I don't see any problem in removing the module too, so I have modified the script as you suggested. :)

I suspect that you're correct and the bluetooth radio is turned off, however leaving the kernel module in seems to cause the module to keep waking the CPU up from sleep states, which is what PowerTop is picking up.

As you say, removing the module isn't going to hurt.

Scripts have been completely rearranged and reorganized.
I've updated the main post with informations on how they work now.

I installed the nc10-scripts package in Xubuntu 9.10 (karmic) and it took me a while to note that nc10 is the command to use as there was no hint in the package description. I use neither compiz nor metacity, but I can enable the keybindings manually in Keyboard settings of Xfce desktop environment.

I can't enable bluetooth: the command gives "Can't init device hci0: Unknown error 132 (132)". I have used blueman-applet (that displays status in its tray icon) but even that can not turn bluetooth on now. Strange, it used to work before. Maybe updates broke my bluetooth :(

By the way, I would be interested in some applet that would display status of webcam in panel.

As for the main post, in my experience "nc10 lcd" needs sudo, but "nc10 cpuperf auto" does not.

As for the bluetooth toggle, it works after suspend to RAM & resume.

Re: HOWTO: NC10 scripts

Postby shaunmenzies » 04/11/2009, 15:16

I have just done a complete fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10 Netbook Remix on a Samsung n310. Everything is working well except the function keys. I then installed NC-10 Script and Backlight packages as per instructions on this website. Everything works well on the command line in a terminal BUT not via the Fn keys.

What should I do next to bind the Fn key combos to the commands ?

Many thanks in advance of any help,

Cheers, Shaun.

It depends what desktop environment you are using. In Xfce you can do it easily in keyboard settings.

On ubuntu karmic normal version, the 'Commands' compiz plugin needed to use hotkeys is enabled by default. I don't know if it's the same for the netbook remix.
Just check it: install the 'compizconfig-settings-manager' package, start it and make sure the 'Commands' plugin is enabled.
