the death of fsca16xx and the birth of cellwriter as an HIM plugin

sadly to inform that my amilo laptop has gone to a new way and it is no longer in my possession. so i will not be able to continue maintaining the fsca16xx script. there are a few open issues (like hotkeys daemon going bezzerk) which i haven't fixed yet, so my advice is to stop using the script. instead i would advice that acerhk or acer_acpi modules will be loaded and used ( running acerhk example: sudo modprobe acerhk force_series=5020 autowlan=1).

on a different subject i have started a new project named himcellwriter which integrate the magnificent
cellwriter hand writing recognition application (applause to the author) as an hildon input method plugin. currently i am attempting to revive a pentium 3 500mhz desktop computer from scrap to be my main machine that will replace the amilo i used to have.

1) if you have been using the script and something which happens to be 'hotkeys' is eating your cpu on ubuntu interpid, i suggest that you remove it by running:
sudo apt-get remove hotkeys
after removal, the "Activate/Deactivate" popup will stop appearing.

2) if you're new to ubuntu and have amilo li1718 or a1650g run the following 3 commands to add wireless led support without using the script- this will work until acerhk will be removed from ubuntu (probably 9.04 or 9.10):
$ echo options acerhk autowlan=1 force_series=5020 | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/options
$ echo acerhk | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
$ sudo rmmod acerhk > /dev/null 2>&1 ; sudo modprobe acerhk autowlan=1 force_series=5020

please let me know if it does not work as i was unable to test it...

EDIT: i made a mistake in step 2 and it is fixed now. i will search a fix to what it caused and publish it soon

Your script has helped very many people who would have probably given up on installing linux on the amilo. Thank you very much.

Thank you so much! I had the wifi working, but could not enable the switch to turn it on. Those 3 little lines worked a treat an I am online!

For ref: Mint Felicia on li1718 - working great.

Thumbs up matey!

I semm to have a little problem with this... It works for a while, but if i have the computer turnd off fe over night i have to apply the code again in order to get it working, and when that happens i have to manually connect to hidden network.

When i type the commandstring i get access denied on the first 2, and the 3:d works and fires up the led...

Any idea on how i can get past this whole "forgetting-thingy"?



DamagedSpline said...

the first 2 lines are for that forget thingy. anyway i updated the first 2 lines as suggested by apsttl on amilo-forums. please retry now.

Jox said...

I changed to the lines u changed the other day (like yesteday or so) still the same this morning tho...Gonna try again later today, but i still got acces denied when trying to enter them yesterday

Hi there, thanks for the script. It seems to have worked on getting wireless going on a laptop a few thousand kilometers from me. The laptop says "AMILO Li 1718" in dmidecode, and is installed with Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04. It responds well to "options acerhk autowlan=1 force_series=5020" as you suggested. I also downloaded the development snapshot of madwifi, which may or may not have been necessary.
