Easiest fastest way is to enter BIOS – restart and press ESC and then diable internal pointer, forget disabling drivers etc it doesn’t work, well for me
So much easier this way and easy to reverese if required by simply doing it all again but re-enable it.
Lifes made easy
Asus S300 has been great since I upgraded the HDD to SSD but the trackpad went mental so wireless mouse is back in action.
Wow I kinda like the retro look and speed is pretty awesome ok my netbook is fairly new but still impressive, you try the demo option via USB
2 things worth noting – connecting to wireless and root password is user: ROOT & Pass: ROOT on the demo
I’ve highlighted this post from anther site for help with WIFI setup HERE
It doesn’t scan unless you add the wlan0 as stated in the instructions, oh and another thing right click on the wifi OFF to ON (easily missed)
there ya go another OS to tinker with next is WILL THE GARMIN 500 CONNECT TO AntiX 🙂
Debian AntiX is different to ubuntu as you don’t install via TERMINAL best get a guide up asap
plenty of surfing tonight and head scratching lol well a night pissing about scanning how the new system works INTERESTING !!!
START MENU (antiX logo – applications – system tools – metapackage installer and select options / program to install (garmin seems to like opera on linux or midori but not chromium)
**** instructions for debian garmin install go HERE *****
*** a good write up on AntiX luddite HERE ****
Download linux mint 15 and use something like unetbootin then enter bios and do that follow these steps:
- When your notebook booting press F2
- Go to Boot page and Enable “Launch CSM” option.
- Then go to security page and disable the “Security boot controle”.
- Now save the changes and restart the netbook, and press escape button

1st tip is get the dam password pop up removed – use the run icon and type netplwiz and select user and untick above enter password jod done
