You want to impress your friends with temporary Main screen with your own “Search screen”. I said temporary, because it’s only the one display, when you key in your ‘search key’ then it will go back to Google again.

How to do it?
Step 1. Goto www.pimpmysearch.com


Step 2. Enter your search screen’s ‘Title’.
Just enter your title in the ‘Enter your name’ text box then click ‘>>Create Now”.

Now you have your own Search Screen.

If you asked me, it’s the real step to fix the web cam problem? I will answer, I don’t know. I just found that it suddenly works.

At least if you know what I did before, it may work to you too.

But, I don’t want to put you on trouble if you fail. So, if you want to try, try it in your on risk.

There are 2 trials that I’ve done before.

First Test. Using original driver from Toshiba (failed)

 

First, I install ndiswrapper application because I don’t have it.

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9

Then I install my windows driver with Ndiswrapper.

You have to go back to your original Windows and copy the web cam driver files or may be you have to download from Toshiba website.

I checked ndiswrapper’s driver list

taufanlubis@toshiba:~/MyData/driver_webcam$ ndiswrapper -l

uvcftr : driver installed

taufanlubis@toshiba:~/MyData/driver_webcam$

I loaded ndiswrapper module

taufanlubis@toshiba:~/MyData/driver_webcam$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

Finally checked the loaded module in kernel ring buffer

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ dmesg | grep 04f2:b008

[ 15.280000] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device Chicony USB 2.0 Camera (04f2:b008)

Done.

Now, I need an application to test it. So, I downloaded Camorama, it didn’t work. Still not recognized the video device.

Then I tried with EasyCam2, also did not work.

Finally, I tested with XawTV.

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ sudo apt-get install xawtv

But still nothing happen.

I stopped it.

When I tried with camorama, XawTV and easycam also did not work.

But, few weeks later, I don’t know why I can saw my face in my wecam with aMsn. Is chicony web cam only work with aMsn? I don’t know.

Then I double-click to have a chat with my friend.

fixwebcam02.png

To try to use my web cam.

I still don’t know the answer. But, it works.

I bought Toshiba A205 because it has Intel 945 Intel Chipset and Intel Graphics Card which are compatible with Ubuntu with Compiz. The specification below is more than enough to run Gutsy with all its features.

Specification:

  • Processor : Inter Core Duo T2450

  • Ram : 1G

  • Hard disk : 120 GB

  • LCD : 15.4” WXGA

  • DVD : Super Multi Double Layer

  • Wireless : 802.11 a/b/g wireless LAN

  • CAM : Built in

  • Mic : Built in

  • Speaker : Harman Cardon

When I run Gutsy live CD, the ‘extra Visual Effects’ from System > Preferences > Appearance could run.

Then I found the problems which are:

NOT WORKING

  • No sound (Intel Sound Card still not supported by Ubuntu) (fixed with ALSA driver). You will surprise that my Sound Card works better with ALSA, louder and more clear compare to its original driver for Vista. The problem is I still can’t control the volume via my Volume Switch.

  • Built-in Mic

    Working with Skype 2.

  • No Modem

    I don’t need it anyway. I use LAN & Wireless LAN

  • No Web Cam

    Working with Skype 2 and aMSN.

  • Keyboard function keys.

    The only key function (Fn) that work are Fn+F10 and Fn+F11. That’s why I have problem when I try to use external screen or Projector. I found that there is a program named Keytouch can fix it. Unfortunetly, there is no module for A205 yet. I’ve tried to use module for another toshiba type but not working.

  • Multimedia buttons

  • Volume (When I tried first installation with ALSA driver, it didn’t work. But when I re-installed my Ubuntu and installed with the same ALSA driver, it works.)

  • VGA output

    Working. I’ve tested with few brands of Portable Projector.

WORKI/NG

  • Function key on Keyboard (Fn+F10 and Fn+F11)

  • Wireless LAN (restricted driver)

  • VGA card (rendering: NO), still can run compiz

  • USB

  • Ethernet card

  • Multimedia Card Reader (SD/MMC/MS/MS PRO/xD)

  • DVD writer double layer.

MAYBE WORKING

  • Firewire

    Not try yet.

  • PCMCIA

    Not try yet.

  • S-Video output.

    Not try yet.

The information that I have from taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ lspci:

  • Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub

  • VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller

  • Mass storage controller: Texas Instruments 5-in-1 Multimedia Card Reader (SD/MMC/MS/MS PRO/xD)

  • Generic system peripheral [0805]: Texas Instruments PCIxx12 SDA Standard Compliant SD Host Controller

As you’ve seen above, Ubuntu doesn’t recognize my modem. When I checked with aplay, it said that my modem is Si3054 Modem.

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ aplay -l

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog]

Subdevices: 1/1

Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 6: Si3054 Modem [Si3054 Modem]

Subdevices: 1/1

Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$

May be, if I have time, I will fix the modem and post the solution. But not now, I don’t use it anyway. Dial up connection is too slow.

Well, finally after I fixed the problems, few devices which still not working are:

  • Function key

  • Multimedia buttons

  • Modem

I bought Linksys because the price is not too expensive and I’ve seen my friend use it with Linux. I choose Linksys WAP54G because that it was displayed at the store. There is no explanation that it can be run with Linux. The installation CD is only available for Windows. I though it’s ok, my friend use it so I’m sure that there will be no problem with me.

Then I called him, he said, “You can set it up using Web browser with IP address 192.168.1.1”. This is the default IP for most Linksys products. I turned on the device, plugged the network cable to my laptop, changed my IP address to 192.168.1.2, and test the connection with ping and got this message:

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ ping 192.168.1.1

PING 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1) 56(84) bytes of data.

From 192.168.1.2 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable

Mean that the default IP is different.

The only way to see the default IP is run with its CD installer and which I have to run it on windows. Lucky I still have my old PC that use XP. Finally, I found that the default IP is 192.168.1.245.

Set your IP address in the same subnet with Linksys IP.

First you set your have to set IP address in the same subnet with Linksys. If Linksys uses 192.168.1.245 then you can use from 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.244 or 192.168.1.246-192.168.1.254.

To change the IP, open System > Administration > Network > Wired Connection > Properties > Disable ‘enable roaming mode’, Static IP address > Fill 192.168.1.2 (at IP address) and 255.255.255.0 (at subnet mask).

Or

you can temporary change through Linux terminal, open Application > Accessories > Terminal type:

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$

Well, everything is OK, now I can start to set the configuration using my Fire fox.

Before we go to that subject, I want to describe a bit about Linksys WAP54G that I use.

About Linksys WAP54G

Linksys WAP54G is product of Linksys-A division of Cisco System, Inc. It’s compatible with Wireless-B (802.11b) and Wireless-G (802.11g). Data rates up to 54Mbps in Wireless-G mode and up to 11Mbps in Wireless-B mode.

It has advanced wireless security 128-bit WPA encryption, MAC filtering and free trial of maximum security Linksys Wireless Guard WPA-RADIUS service. You can set Linksys as Access Point (default), AP client, Wireless repeater and Wireless Bridge.

For a note, when you set it as ‘AP client’ and ‘wireless bridge’ mode, this device will only communicate with another Linksys Access Point (WAP54G).

When you set to ‘wireless repeater’ mode, this device will only communicate with another Linksys Access Point (WAP54G) and Linksys wireless-G router (WRT54G).

Setting Linksys using Firefox

If you can connect to Linksys then open your web browser, type 192.168.1.245 in the URL and press Enter.

You will get a screen below if your are success.

linksys1.png

DON’T FILL the user name, just go to ‘Password’ and put ‘admin‘ as a password then click ‘OK’.

 

Linksys doesn’t use user name as the default.

You will get a main screen below is your login is success.

linksys2.png

Just change anything you want, click save, wait while the ‘Linksys’ Logo’ will blink to white color and go back to its original color after the setup has done.

To test the connection, choose the wireless network, open a Linux terminal and ping the Linksys.

Sometimes, when you visit a Linux blog, you see something like below:
Registered Ubuntu User #16660
Registered Linux User # 462798
