Two years ago I wrote about installing Ubuntu 10.04 on ONKYO BX407A4, now I have upgraded it to 12.04 LTS, and here’s a reviewed procedure in case anyone still uses this UMPC.
Basically everything works so well out of the box, except for a few things that need a little bit of tweaking:
Replace /etc/rc.local with the following: rc.local
Replace /etc/default/grub with the following: grub, when done run ‘
Add the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-onkyo.conf: blacklist-onkyo.conf
Add the file /etc/pm/power.d/99_onkyo and make it executable: 99_onkyo
Add the file /etc/pm/sleep.d/74_onkyo and make it executable: 74_onkyo
Add the file /etc/pm/sleep.d/00_onkyo and make it executable: 00_onkyo
Add the file /etc/pm/config.d/onkyo_fix: onkyo_fix
sudo apt-get install vbetool
Install the latest version of opengalax Touch Screen Driver:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:poliva/opengalax $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install opengalax xinput-calibrator
When done, edit the file /etc/opengalax.conf and set psmouse=1, this together with the changes in grub will make the touchscreen and the optical mouse work.
Reboot, and run
xinput_calibrator to calibrate the screen, save the calibration data in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf.
Some other useful hints:
Rember to add the ‘discard’ parameter to /etc/fstab for SSD trim.
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:poliva/pof $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install indicator-sysbat $ echo \"coretemp\" |sudo tee -a /etc/modules
Install lxbat instead.
With all these changes everything works as expected, even suspend/resume
