Acer W500 Mint 14 Cinnamon 64-bit issues

Postby Eddo22 on Fri Feb 08, 2013 8:34 pm

Hi, semi Linux noob here. (Installed Turbo Linux 6.0 back in the day) haven't touched it since. Advanced Windoz user. 8)

I've managed to get Linux Mint 14 installed on my Tablet and mostly configured to my use. Video/Sound/Wireless etc working great. But there are a few really irritating issues present.

1. On screen Keyboard was coming up but I couldn't use it to type anything, it was using full cpu power and basically wouldn't let me do anything. Eventually it resorted to causing the desktop to crash...which is it's current state.

2. Drag and drop rarely works on the desktop.

3. Double clicking on the desktop and possibly other places (folders) is a downright chore. I'm lucky if I can get it to open in 10 clicks. When problem no 2 and 3 are present the desktop/os eventually freezes causing me to reboot, however that's only in tablet mode. If the external keyboard/mouse dock is plugged in it seems to be fine as far as not freezing.

Any help would be appreciated.
