After reaching the [[Beginners'_Guide#Part_III:_Install_X_and_configure_ALSA|Install X and configure ALSA]] section of the [[Beginners' Guide]], follow these Dell Mini 10v guidelines:
+
See [[Xorg]] and [[Intel graphics]].
 
+
=== Video Driver ===
+
Replace vesa with Intel
+
# pacman -R xf86-video-vesa
+
# pacman -S xf86-video-intel
+

=== Touchpad ===
 
=== Touchpad ===
The synaptics package is required to use the touchpad. For help refer to the [[Touchpad_Synaptics|Synaptics]] guide. Manual configuration is needed as follows to ignore movements, scrolling and tapping on the bottom section of the touchpad, where the touchpad buttons are located.
+
See [[Touchpad Synaptics]] for general information.
  
Firstly install the synaptics package:
+
Manual configuration is needed as follows to ignore movements, scrolling and tapping on the bottom section of the touchpad, where the touchpad buttons are located. Add the 'JumpyCursorThreshold' and 'AreaBottomEdge' options to {{ic|/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf}}:
{{bc|
+
# pacman -S xf86-input-synaptics
+
}}
+
  
Add the 'JumpyCursorThreshold' and 'AreaBottomEdge' options to {{ic|/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf}}:
 
 
{{hc|/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf|

Once X has been restarted, the bottom part of the touchpad will be disabled, allowing a user to click without unintentional movements of the mouse. See the synaptics manual page for available options:

==Wireless==
 
==Wireless==
The Wireless NIC is supported by the b43 module and is included in kernel from 2.6.32 on. Firmware must be installed for this hardware, as outlined in the [[Wireless_Setup#b43|Wireless Setup]] article.
+
See [[Broadcom wireless]]
 
+
If you have difficulty with connection, or have unstable connection, try the option
+
{{bc|1=
+
qos=0
+
}}
+
when loading the b43 module. This can be done with
+
{{bc|1=
+
rmmod b43    # remove the module
+
modprobe b43  qos=0  # reload it with the option
+
}}
+
Once confirming that it works, you can create a file /etc/modprobe.d/b43.conf with the following line
+
{{bc|1=
+
options b43 qos=0
+
}}
+
permanently.
+
 
+
-- other option - to use broadcom-wl driver from AUR repository
+
{{bc|
+
yaourt -S broadcom-wl
+
}}
+

=== Suspend to RAM ===
 
=== Suspend to RAM ===
To suspend to RAM, install both {{Pkg|pm-utils}} and {{Pkg|acpid}}:
+
See [[Suspend and hibernate]].
 
+
{{bc|
+
# pacman -S pm-utils acpid
+
}}
+
 
+
The acpid package handles events such as pressing the the power button or closing the laptop lid. For more information, see the [[Acpid]] article. To suspend to RAM, edit {{ic|/etc/acpi/handlers.sh}} to tell the acpid package to call the pm-suspend script (part of [[pm-utils]]), when an event such as closing the laptop lid occurs. Below, {{Ic|/usr/sbin/pm-suspend}} has been added to the ''button/lid'' and ''button/power'' sections:
+
 
+
{{hc|/etc/acpi/handlers.sh|
+
#!/bin/sh
+
# Default acpi script that takes an entry for all actions
+
 
+
.....
+
 
+
case "$1" in
+
    button/power)
+
        #echo "PowerButton pressed!">/dev/tty5
+
        /usr/sbin/pm-suspend # <<<< ADDED HERE
+
        case "$2" in
+
            PWRF)  logger "PowerButton pressed: $2" ;;
+
            *)      logger "ACPI action undefined: $2" ;;
+
        esac
+
        ;;
+
 
+
.....
+
 
+
    button/lid)
+
        #echo "LID switched!">/dev/tty5
+
        /usr/sbin/pm-suspend # <<<< ADDED HERE
+
        ;;
+
    *)
+
        logger "ACPI group/action undefined: $1 / $2"
+
        ;;
+
esac
+
}}
+
 
+
The netbook will now suspend to RAM when the laptop lid is closed or power button pressed. To wake the netbook, open the lid or press the power button once more.
+
 
+
It may happen that the resume takes more than 5 seconds of black screen before coming back. This may be caused by the b43 firmware loading delay. A close inspection of 'dmesg' should reveal the cause: check the line containing 'b43-phy0' to see if reload it takes a long time. If so, create a file /etc/pm/config.d/modules and add
+
{{hc|/etc/pm/config.d/modules|2=
+
SUSPEND_MODULES="b43"
+
}}
+
This should reduce the resume time significantly to the extent that the graphical display comes back almost instantaneously.
+
 
+
== Extras ==
+
=== Sound and Microphone ===
+
Sound can be set up as outlined in the [[Beginners'_Guide#Part_III:_Install_X_and_configure_ALSA|ALSA section of Beginners' Guide]]. The microphone and speaker can be unmuted and volume increased by using alsamixer:
+
 
+
{{bc|
+
$ alsamixer
+
}}
+
 
+
Firstly, press {{ic|Fn}}+{{ic|F5}} to view both Playback and Capture cards. Now press {{ic|M}} to unmute Master, PCM, Mic and Capture. Arrows can be used to select the channel and increase volume.
+
 
+
To save these ALSA settings, issue this command:
+
{{bc|
+
# alsactl store
+
}}
+
 
+
=== Webcam ===
+
The inbuilt webcam works out of the box, with the latest kernel. You may use the {{Pkg|cheese}} package to test the webcam, however this package depends on {{Pkg|gnome-desktop}}. Also check that the normal user is a member of the ''video'' group:
+
{{bc|
+
$ groups $USER
+
}}
+
 
+
=== Bluetooth ===
+
Follow the [[Bluetooth]] article for setting up Bluetooth.
+
 
+
=== SD card reader ===
+
The SD card reader works out of the box.
+
 
+
=== Solid-state drive ===
+
For maximising performace of a SSD, refer to [[Maximizing_performance#Tuning_for_an_SSD|this]] article.

This articles details the installation and configuration of Arch Linux on the Dell Mini 10v. The Dell Mini 10v is a netbook with 10" display from Dell. This article covers the configuration of the graphics card, wireless card and touchpad.

Before you begin

This article is intended to assist users with the specifics of installing Arch Linux on the Dell Mini 10v. It is assumed that a user is also following an installation guide such as the Beginners' guide.

Dell Mini 10v hardware may vary, however the following list of hardware has been assumed in this article:

Audio
Intel Corporation 82801G card
Realtek ALC272 Chip (from alsamixer)
Video
Intel Corporation Mobile 945GME
Wired NIC
Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E
Wireless NIC
Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g
Bluetooth
Dell 365 Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
Webcam
Syntek Integrated Webcam

To list hardware, issue this command:

$ lspci && lsusb

The Dell Mini 10v does not have an optical drive. This means you will need to install Arch Linux through one of the alternative methods:

  • USB stick (recommended)
  • External USB CD-ROM drive.

To select the required boot media to install Arch Linux, press F12 to open the Boot Menu when booting the Dell Mini 10v.

Xorg

See Xorg and Intel graphics.

Touchpad

See Touchpad Synaptics for general information.

Manual configuration is needed as follows to ignore movements, scrolling and tapping on the bottom section of the touchpad, where the touchpad buttons are located. Add the 'JumpyCursorThreshold' and 'AreaBottomEdge' options to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf:

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf
Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "touchpad catchall"
    Driver "synaptics"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "TapButton3" "3"
        Option "JumpyCursorThreshold" "90"
        Option "AreaBottomEdge" "4100"
EndSection

Once X has been restarted, the bottom part of the touchpad will be disabled, allowing a user to click without unintentional movements of the mouse.

Wireless

See Broadcom wireless

Power

Battery status

For utilities to monitor the battery status, see the Laptop article.
