  • Petition: BIOS Fix for Asus M6000N(e) Series Notebooks
  • acpi4asus - driver to handle special keys and LEDs on ASUS/Medion laptops
  • asus-hotkeys project.
  • Synaptics touchpad driver for Linux
  • Lapsus was created to provide easy access to all features of ASUS laptops. It provides easy control over the laptop's LEDs status, wireless and Bluetooth devices, and brightness of the LCD. These features must be supported by the asus-laptop kernel module from acpi4asus project.
  • ASUS Oled Driver is a driver for the small OLED display device present in some Asus laptops.
  • ASUS Oled Driver II
  • ACPI, DSDT: When your harddisk will creep at an amazing transfer speed of 2 MB/s and keventd yields up to 100% usage of the CPU, see the ACPI DSDT-page for more info about DSDTs and this page for a fixed DSDT. This seems to be a problem of all ASUS Centrino(tm) notebooks currently available.
  • SplashTop running on prototype ASUS notebook
  • asus_fan driver was ported from nhc (notebook hardware control) class. Currently supported only a8j series, tested on a8jn and a8js.
  • sdricoh_cs aims to provide a Linux kernel driver for some Ricoh SecureDigital Cardreaders that announce themselves as RICOH Bay1Controller pcmcia cards. The reader may be found in notebooks from the Samsung P35, the Dell X300 and Asus M6N series.
  • Asus Display is a daemon that displays system information on the OLED display found on laptops such as the ASUS G1. The details currently include the A/C and battery status, time and date, CPU load, and CPU speed step information.
  • ASUS G50 OLED is a daemon that controls the ASUS G50/G70 OLED to display system monitoring statistics such as load, CPU usage, battery level, total network traffic, CPU core operating frequency, and the current time and date. The package includes ACPI event handlers that stop writing to the display when the lid is closed and stop or start the daemon by one of the blue buttons.


Manufacturer Support

Distributions for the ASUS Eee PC

  • The Debian for the Asus Eee PC project produces a Debian-live/installer CD customized for the inexpensive Asus Eee PC subnotebook system as an alternative to the default OS. Software is from Debian main, except where absolutely required (e.g. madwifi).

  • Leeenux is a complete netbook Linux distribution made for the Asus eee 701G with 2GB and 4GB SSD, but other netbooks can run it as well. Its purpose is to make this popular netbook useful once again. Its intention is to provide a fast and reliable experience out of the box with as much usability as a 7" screen can give. It is based on Ubuntu UNR and EasyPeasy, and it contains only free software. It has the UNR menu and uses light applications and GNOME. There are no Mono or Qt applications.

Applications for the Eee PC

  • Kysrun starts applications, bookmarks, and opens documents by typing few key strokes. Starting applications is much faster than hunting for the requested app in menus and submenus. It has few depencies, and was originally written for the ASUS Eee PC. It was inspired by application launchers like Katapult, Launchy, or Mercury.
  • fancontrol is a small script that monitors temperatures and fan speeds (on PWM motherboards, IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads, ASUS Eee PCs) and sets the fan at the minimum required level to insure low noise levels.
  • Howto: Reduce fan noise level on the eee pc 901 / 1000 / 1000H: Owners of the Asus Eee pc 901 may have noticed that it makes quite a lot of noise when the fan is on. In Ubuntu / Xubuntu / Kubuntu there are ways to control the fan that (almost) eliminates this.
  • eeetray is a small tool for the Asus/Xandros Linux distribution used on Eee PC. It displays a system tray icon that allows you to start or stop the wireless LAN, Bluetooth, webcam, internal cardreader, 3G modem, and ssh (if installed) individually. There are also options to shut down or reboot the system without any further confirmation.
