Thanks, it was the solution (a part of it)
no quick esc: just press tab when you in the first menu and add "acpi=off" and it worked.
It made also possible to boot and install Moblin.
Now will look for touch screen calibration method:)

em... I was trying just to boot from live image. It was successful. Then I tried to install Moblin with this solution and it was done also.
Since I didn't like moblin I'm gonna install 9.10 now. Will report after. I thought it is no problems to install 9.10 :/

there are problems with 9.10 mentioned in some other thread, the solution was to use nomodset in the boot parameters but then teh graphics are not that good
dont know if acpi=off will work

i just tried to install 9.10. It installed ok, but no luck with boot - black screen appears and stuck there. But booting from live image was ok anyway. In spite of not working stick and decalibrated touch screen :)
in fact I'm not want to have ubuntu too much. I'm just looking for some really finger friendly interface...

Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 Beta on the UX180p

Postby kathleenhenri » Sun Apr 04, 2010 13:31

I am running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 Beta on my UX180p. So far, so good. I was able to get the front camera up and running - just had to install a driver for it. Touchscreen was recognized and is partially calibrated. The calibration is best in the center of the screen but is off by about 1/4" at the edges. Sound is working - but also needed a few tweaks before it would work. This link http://liliputer.blogspot.com/ has all the details. Boots very fast and runs pretty well. I am looking forward to the final release.

No I did not. That seems to be fixed this time around. I just posted a link to how I did it in my original post. It includes links to the driver for the camera and how I got the sound to work.

great thanks so the graphics might be better because nomodeset disabled the intel graphics optimizations
