This article describes both the 1005P and the 1005PE, since the only difference of the 1005PE is wlan n and a bigger harddrive.
  
The stock kernel (currently 2.6.33) seems to support all the hardware in the 1005P, although not without [[#Issues|problems]].
+
==Installation==
 +
#[[Install_from_USB_stick|Installing from USB]]: according to the article on [[Putting_installation_media_on_a_USB_key|installing from USB]], the standard ISO images can be used for this (beginning with release 2010.05).
 +
#[[Install_Arch_from_network_(via_PXE)|Installing via PXE]] works well. It requires another computer to use as PXE host, and some configuration.

==Kernel==
[[Install_Arch_from_network_(via_PXE)|Installing via PXE]] works well - it requires another computer to use as PXE host, and some configuration.
+
Nothing to need to be done. If you have append {{Ic|<nowiki>acpi_osi=Linux</nowiki>}} to your [[kernel parameters]] before, please remove it. Or the touchpad may '''not''' work in KDE (although it works in KDM and Gnome) and the touchpad activation key '''[Fn]-[F3]''' has no effect at all.
[[Install_from_USB_stick|Installing from USB]]: ethernet does not work with the 2009.08 img files (the latest as of this writing), so the driver has to be fetched separately if needed ([http://partner.atheros.com/Download.aspx?id=125]).
+
  
=Xorg=
+
==Xorg==
==Driver==
+
===Video Driver===
Video driver: '''xf86-video-intel'''
+
Install {{Pkg|xf86-video-intel}}.
  
==HAL==
+
===Device Autodetection===
As of this writing, [[HAL]] needs to be installed and running in order for the input devices to be autodetected.
+
Everything works out of the box.
  
==DPI setting==
+
===Graphic Performance===
A good comfortable setting would be 96dpi or 75dpi if you like your fonts really small. An easy way to set your DPI would be to add this to the end of your xserverrc (located in /etc/X11/xinit/).
+
The default graphic performance is the best you can currently get. It is not needed to add "optimizations" like "AccelMethod" "exa" to your {{ic|xorg.conf}}, because these will get ignored by the current version of the Intel drivers anyway.  The only thing you can add is XvMC Hardware decoding support, which allows your Intel graphics adapter to decode MPEG2 video material. To do this and set XvMC, here is a minimal {{ic|xorg.conf}}:
  
   exec /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp -dpi 96
+
   Section "Device"
 +
      Identifier "Card0"
 +
      Driver "intel"
 +
      Option "XvMC" "on"
 +
  EndSection
  
==Graphic Performance==
+
More is not needed in your {{ic|xorg.conf}}, since Xorg uses input hotplugging.
With X.org's new 2D acceleration architecture, EXA, users of the intel driver may experience slowdown with window redrawing and scrolling. A possible solution to this is to override intel's default 2D acceleration, XXA, with the new X.org acceleration. Add this section to the device section of your xorg.conf.
+
  
  Option "AccelMethod" "exa"
+
To let X know where the XvMC library is, run:
  Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
+
  
In addition to improving 2D graphics, the card's 3D performance can be [https://bugs.launchpad.net/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/195843|greatly enhanced] by adding this line to your /etc/profile.
+
  # echo /usr/lib/libIntelXvMC.so > /etc/X11/XvMCConfig
  
export INTEL_BATCH=1
+
===Touchpad===
  
See [[Intel]] for more information.
+
Install {{Pkg|xf86-input-synaptics}} (see [[Touchpad Synaptics]]). To enable Two Finger Scrolling and to disable Edge Scrolling, add this to your {{ic|/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf}} inside the InputClass Section:
  
According to the intel driver documentation, X-Video Motion Compensation or "XvMC" is not  enabled by default. Enabling this option can greatly reduce CPU utilization when playing back MPEG-2 video. To enable this option, two things need to be done; first, add this to the device section of your xorg.conf:
+
  Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "true"
 +
  Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "true"
 +
  Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinZ" "10"
 +
  Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinW" "7"
 +
  Option "VertEdgeScroll" "false"
 +
  Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "false"
  
Option "XvMC" "true"
+
===xrandr===
 +
For a nice GUI tool, you can try {{Pkg|lxrandr}}.
  
Lastly, create a config file to tell the X server where the XvMC library is:
+
Switch to external monitor (VGA port):
 
+
echo /usr/lib/libIntelXvMC.so > /etc/X11/XvMCConfig
+
 
+
==Touchpad==
+
 
+
Works. For additional stuff, see [[http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Asus_Eee_PC_1005HA#Touchpad]].
+
 
+
==xrandr==
+
For a nice GUI tool, try '''lxrandr'''; it is very simple to use!
+
 
+
Switch to External Monitor:
+
 
  xrandr --output LVDS1 --off --output VGA1 --auto
 
  xrandr --output LVDS1 --off --output VGA1 --auto
  
Line 71: Line 69:
 
  xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --output VGA1 --off

=Powersaving and ACPI=
+
==Powersaving and ACPI==
Start off your powersaving adventures by installing Powertop. This is basically a program to see how much power stuff is using, but it also gives you tips on what to change.  
+
Your best bet is to disable all hardware you do not intend to use (to access the BIOS settings, press F2 after rebooting).
# pacman -S powertop
+
  
A good starting point is to disable the hardware you don't plan on using. Reboot and enter the BIOS by pressing F2. Disable for example the card reader, camera, ethernet but only if you don't need them of course.
+
See [[power saving]] for details.
  
According to Powertop the 1005HA uses around 7-10 Watts on maximum powersave (using Laptop mode tools and cpufreq and the above hardware disabled, using Wifi and writing this). Idle around 5-6 W. Please report how to get it lower!
+
===laptop-mode-tools===
 +
Laptop-mode-tools provides an easy way to setup most of the available power saving options, which include spinning down the hard drive and adjusting the power saving modes of the harddrive and CPU, as well as autosuspending the USB-ports, setting screen brightness, configuring the eee's own 'Super Hybrid Engine', etc.
  
==laptop-mode-tools==
+
====Setup====
Laptop mode is a nice and easy way to setup most of the availiable power saving options on the 1005HA. These include spinning down the hard drive and adjusting the power saving modes of the harddrive and CPU, as well as autosuspending of the USB-ports and screen brightness etc. It provides a great centralized configuration file as well as separate configuration files for the various power saving modules managed by Laptop mode tools.
+
 
+
===Installation and setup===
+
Install the package with
+
 
  # pacman -S laptop-mode-tools
 
  # pacman -S laptop-mode-tools
  
The main configuration file is /etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf but there are more configuration files located in the directory /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/ Be sure to read them and set them up accordingly.  
+
The main configuration file is {{ic|/etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf}}, plus there are several separate configuration files in {{ic|/etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/}} for the various power saving modules managed by laptop-mode-tools. The files are well commented, so it should be easy to set everything up as needed. (For more information, see [[Laptop Mode Tools]])
  
Note the option in laptop-mode.conf to automatically start many of the other modules.  
+
To make the daemon start at boot, add {{Ic|laptop-mode}} to the {{Ic|DAEMONS}} array in {{ic|/etc/rc.conf}}.
 +
 
 +
====LCD brightness====
 +
The relevant configuration file is {{ic|/etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/lcd-brightness.conf}}. Brightness values are between 0 (darkest) and 15 (brightest). An example of usable settings:
  
1005HA specific options for a few of the modules below (there are many more):
 
===LCD brightness===
 
For lcd-brightness, edit the file /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/lcd-brightness.conf and adjust it as suits you. The darkest is 0 and brightest 15, this is a suggested setup:
 
 
  BATT_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 1"
 
  BATT_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 1"
 
  LM_AC_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 15"
 
  LM_AC_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 15"
 
  NOLM_AC_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 15"
 
  NOLM_AC_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 15"
  BRIGHTNESS_OUTPUT="/proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCDD/brightness"
+
  BRIGHTNESS_OUTPUT="/sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness"
 
+
===CPU Powersaving===
+
The eeepc "Super Hybrid Engine" as it's known under windows has a significant effect on powersaving. This underclocks the FSB for powersave/overclocks for performance and can be controlled via /sys/devices/platform/eeepc/cpufv which is provided by the module eeepc_laptop. It is included in the laptop-mode-tools package, and is activated and configured in the file /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/eee-superhe.conf See also this [http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=74951 forum thread].
+
 
+
As of the relase of kernel 2.6.32 the needed module eeepc_laptop doesn't work, to get this working you will need to add the following to the kernel line in the GRUB config (eg. /boot/grub/menu.lst):
+
acpi_osi=Linux
+
 
+
The CPU frequency can be controlled by the file cpufreq.conf provided by laptop mode tools. A good value is ”T2” (75% speed) when on battery and ”minimum” (full speed) when on AC. However, using the cpufrequtils package (see below) is normally a better option, as the ondemand option automatically changes between the specified modes depending on system load.
+
 
+
===USB suspend===
+
Tip: make use of the option to disable the suspending of some USB hardware (eg. 3g modems) by using lsusb to get the ID and then insert it in the configuration file.
+
 
+
==cpufrequtils==
+
To scale the CPU and possibly save a bit of power, you will want to set up cpufrequtils. The daemon provided with this script automatically handles the scaling. You can set the min_freq value higher (eg. 1000MHz) if you prefer things a bit more responsive while still conserving power. Note that this can also be handled by laptop-mode-tools if you prefer.
+
 
+
#pacman -S cpufrequtils
+
#Edit /etc/conf.d/cpufreq <pre>min_freq="800MHz" max_freq="1.60GHz"</pre>
+
#modprobe acpi-cpufreq cpufreq_ondemand cpufreq_powersave
+
#Add these modules listed above to the MODULES=() array in rc.conf
+
#/etc/rc.d/cpufreq start
+
#Add cpufreq to the DAEMONS=() array in rc.conf
+
 
+
 
+
==Hotkeys==
+
To get the hotkeys working (fn+F1 etc, touchpad lock, powerbutton shutdown, Super hybrid engine  toggle), install the [http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=23318 acpi-eeepc-generic package] from AUR. Configuration is done in the file /etc/conf.d/acpi-eeepc-generic.conf.
+
 
+
===Wifi toggle===
+
To enable the toggling of the Wifi by pressing fn+f2, edit the acpi-eeepc-generic config file and change
+
COMMANDS_WIFI_TOGGLE=("/etc/acpi/eeepc/acpi-generic-toggle-wifi.sh")
+
to
+
COMMANDS_WIFI_TOGGLE=()
+
[http://code.google.com/p/acpi-eeepc-generic/wiki/Wireless Source].
+
 
+
===Sound volume hotkeys===
+
In order to get the hotkeys for muting and raising and lowering of the sound volume, edit /etc/conf.d/acpi-eeepc-generic.conf and replace the lines:
+
COMMANDS_MUTE=("alsa_toggle_mute")
+
COMMANDS_VOLUME_DOWN=("alsa_set_volume 5%-")
+
COMMANDS_VOLUME_UP=("alsa_set_volume 5%+")
+
with
+
COMMANDS_MUTE=("amixer set Master toggle")
+
COMMANDS_VOLUME_DOWN=("amixer set Master 10%-")
+
COMMANDS_VOLUME_UP=("amixer set Master 10%+")
+
 
+
Note that the value 10% can be any value you prefer, see the man page of amixer.
+
 
+
===Sleep===
+
If you have problems with the script provided in acpi-eeepc-generic, try '''pm-suspend''' instead.
+
 
+
To substitute '''pm-suspend''' for the acpi sleep script, edit
+
/etc/conf.d/acpi-eeepc-generic.conf and comment out the line that
+
reads:
+
 
+
COMMANDS_SLEEP=("/etc/acpi/eeepc/acpi-eeepc-generic-suspend2ram.sh")
+
 
+
Replace it with:
+
 
+
COMMANDS_SLEEP=("/usr/sbin/pm-suspend")
+
 
+
==Display settings==
+
Create the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and add the following to it to enable Intel's framebuffer compression, which according to [http://www.lesswatts.org/projects/display-and-graphics/faq.php Lesswats.org] is supposed to save quite some power.
+
 
+
Section "Device"
+
  Identifier "Builtin Default intel Device 0"
+
  Driver "intel"
+
  Option "FramebufferCompression" "on"
+
  Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"

+
 
+
To enable/disable the camera:
+
 
+
  # enable
+
  echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/eeepc/camera
+
  # disable
+
  echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/eeepc/camera
+
 
+
If you really want camera to be disabled, take a look in devices section of BIOS.
+
 
+
Make sure that the module <tt>uvcvideo</tt> is loaded
+
 
+
To record video and take photos, you may use '''cheese''' or the [http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=15272 '''wxcam'''] package.
+
 
+
To simply test the camera, you may use <tt>mplayer</tt>:
+
 
+
  mplayer -fps 15 tv://
+

The webcam works with Skype.
+
 
+
==Microphone==
+
The microphone works out of the box, it's just a matter of configuration. Run:
+
 
+
$ alsamixer
+
 
+
Press <F4> to go to the 'Capture' section. Navigate to the 'Capture' item using the right and left arrow keys and make sure 'LR Capture' appears. If it doesn't, press <Space>. The 'Capture' and 'Digital' levels are a trade-off between gain and static. I recommend setting to 70 and 75 (using the up and down arrow keys), respectivelly, but you can ajust this to your liking. Exit alsamixer pressing <ESC> and test it:
+
 
+
$ arecord /tmp/record.wav
+
 
+
Say something close enough to the microphone and hit <Ctrl+C> to stop recording. Play it with:
+
 
+
$ aplay /tmp/record.wav
+
 
+
If everything went well, save your settings (as root):
+
 
+
# alsactl store

Wireless Working ath9k
Audio Working snd_hda_intel
Camera Working uvcvideo
Card Reader Working
Function Keys Working

This article describes both the 1005P and the 1005PE, since the only difference of the 1005PE is wlan n and a bigger harddrive.

Installation

  1. Installing from USB: according to the article on installing from USB, the standard ISO images can be used for this (beginning with release 2010.05).
  2. Installing via PXE works well. It requires another computer to use as PXE host, and some configuration.

Kernel

Nothing to need to be done. If you have append acpi_osi=Linux to your kernel parameters before, please remove it. Or the touchpad may not work in KDE (although it works in KDM and Gnome) and the touchpad activation key [Fn]-[F3] has no effect at all.

Xorg

Video Driver

Install xf86-video-intel.

Device Autodetection

Everything works out of the box.

Graphic Performance

The default graphic performance is the best you can currently get. It is not needed to add "optimizations" like "AccelMethod" "exa" to your xorg.conf, because these will get ignored by the current version of the Intel drivers anyway. The only thing you can add is XvMC Hardware decoding support, which allows your Intel graphics adapter to decode MPEG2 video material. To do this and set XvMC, here is a minimal xorg.conf:

 Section "Device"
     Identifier "Card0"
     Driver "intel"
     Option "XvMC" "on"
 EndSection

More is not needed in your xorg.conf, since Xorg uses input hotplugging.

To let X know where the XvMC library is, run:

 # echo /usr/lib/libIntelXvMC.so > /etc/X11/XvMCConfig

Touchpad

Install xf86-input-synaptics (see Touchpad Synaptics). To enable Two Finger Scrolling and to disable Edge Scrolling, add this to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf inside the InputClass Section:

 Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "true"
 Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "true"
 Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinZ" "10"
 Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinW" "7"
 Option "VertEdgeScroll" "false"
 Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "false"

xrandr

For a nice GUI tool, you can try lxrandr.

Switch to external monitor (VGA port):

xrandr --output LVDS1 --off --output VGA1 --auto

Switch back to eeepc's LCD:

xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --output VGA1 --off

Powersaving and ACPI

Your best bet is to disable all hardware you do not intend to use (to access the BIOS settings, press F2 after rebooting).

See power saving for details.

laptop-mode-tools

Laptop-mode-tools provides an easy way to setup most of the available power saving options, which include spinning down the hard drive and adjusting the power saving modes of the harddrive and CPU, as well as autosuspending the USB-ports, setting screen brightness, configuring the eee's own 'Super Hybrid Engine', etc.

Setup

# pacman -S laptop-mode-tools

The main configuration file is /etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf, plus there are several separate configuration files in /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/ for the various power saving modules managed by laptop-mode-tools. The files are well commented, so it should be easy to set everything up as needed. (For more information, see Laptop Mode Tools)

To make the daemon start at boot, add laptop-mode to the DAEMONS array in /etc/rc.conf.

LCD brightness

The relevant configuration file is /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/lcd-brightness.conf. Brightness values are between 0 (darkest) and 15 (brightest). An example of usable settings:

BATT_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 1"
LM_AC_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 15"
NOLM_AC_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 15"
BRIGHTNESS_OUTPUT="/sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness"

SHE

The eeepc's 'Super Hybrid Engine' has a significant effect on powersaving. This underclocks the FSB for powersave/overclocks for performance and can be controlled via the file /sys/devices/platform/eeepc/cpufv which is provided by the module eeepc_laptop. You can manage this with laptop-mode-tools. The relevant config file is /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/eee-superhe.conf.

Hotkeys

Some work out of the box (see Asus Eee PC 1005HA#Hotkeys for more).
