Have you tried the 'usb-creator' utility shipped with ubuntu?
You can find it as System->Administration->Create a USB Startup Disk.

EDIT:
ops, I didn't notice the post from mieserwicht.
BTW, welcome to the forum. ;)

Thanks voRia & mieserwicht.

@mieserwicht
which section would relate to getting Kubuntu netbook or desktop working as persistent on USB?
Sorry im new to linux.

when I try to make a Kubuntu 9.10 Netbook it says it is not a Desktop image.

Please can somebody advise me how to make a Kubuntu 9.10 Alpha 4 LiveUSB Persistent.

Thank you for your time

All the best

Hello everyone.

I just installed (first time user) UNR 9.10 on my NC10. Love it so far but I have few questions.

1. It doesn't seem to be able to switch between UNR desktop look and standard Ubuntu look? Beta versions seem to had that, from reading around forums. Is this a bug? I prefer the option to choose the standard Ubuntu desktop look. Should reinstall with Ubuntu and not UNR or just wait for some fix? (presumably it doesn't already exist)

2. My brightness up/down buttons never worked. It seems the 9.10 should have that by default but they don't work. From this forum I also set up the repositories and installed nc10-scripts but still brightness up/down not working (fixed the Fn+F9 wi-fi button, thanks).

Any help appreciated and thanks in advance. Cheers.

No, I haven't. Should I just grab it from the Samsung website?

Little nervous about upgrading BIOS, don't wanna mess up my netbook.

There is a thread about how to upgrade the Bios.
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=248

Samsung only provides Bios upgrade when using Windows or DOS.

Be care full. Upgrading the bios can break the nc10 so take is easy!

Now a little howto for using the repository. :D

I wrote the following instructions starting from a freshly installed Ubuntu, with 'proposed' repositories enabled and all the latest updates installed.
If you already followed my old howtos, there will be no problems because all the packages in repository have version number greater than my old packages. So, they will be updated to latest versions anyway.

First thing to do, let's add the repository to our installation.

Go to 'System'->'Administration'->'Software Sources'.
Click on 'Third-Party Software', 'Add' and paste one of the following lines, depending on your Ubuntu version.

if you are using Karmic:
Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/voria/ppa/ubuntu karmic main

if you are using Jaunty:
Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/voria/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

If you are using Intrepid:
Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/voria/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main


then click on 'Add Source'.

If you need the source code, add this line too:

for Karmic:
Code:
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/voria/ppa/ubuntu karmic main

for Jaunty:
Code:
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/voria/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

for Intrepid:
Code:
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/voria/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main


Now go on 'Updates' and make sure the option 'Pre-released updates (*-proposed)' is enabled.

Click on 'Close', then 'Reload'.
An error will popup for security reasons, due to the missing GPG signing key.

Open a terminal and launch this command
Code:
sudo apt-get install voria-ppa-keyring && sudo apt-get update

This will install the GPG key for the repository.
You will have to confirm the operation, typing 'Yes' means you trust my repository (me :P).

Now the repository is enabled, just update the system to latest versions to have all the issues with Ubuntu on NC10 automatically fixed. :)

Here is a summary of all the issues and their fixes.

- The FN keys issue
Automatically fixed with official kernel 2.6.27-13 and newers.

- The brightness problem with gnome-power-manager and the FN-F5 key
Automatically fixed.
To enable the FN-F5 key you have to install the nc10-scripts package, containing the needed script, that will be automatically mapped to the key.
However, if you already have a local configuration in your user home for hotkeys, this has the precedence over the global one.
To use the global one, you need to delete the following configuration files in your home:
Code:
/home/<user name>/.gconf/apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/%gconf.xml
/home/<user name>/.gconf/apps/metacity/global_keybindings/%gconf.xml

Notice that this way any other manually configured hotkey is lost too. You have to reconfigure them.

NOTE:
If you are on Jaunty, you have to enable the 'commands' plugin in advanced compiz configuration in order to use keybindings.
Install the compizconfig-settings-manager package to get the advanced compiz configuration manager.

- Enable the wireless card (with RFKILL support) and the FN-F9 key
Just install the linux-backports-modules-jaunty package if you are on Jaunty, or the linux-backports-modules-intrepid package if you are on Intrepid.
To enable the FN-F9 key you have to install the nc10-scripts package, containing the needed script, that will be automatically mapped to the key. Also, a new rule is added to sudo configuration file in order to run the script with no password needed. Like the FN-F5 key, you have to delete the user local configuration (if it exists and it was created before the new package was installed) to use the global one.

- The sensitivity issue with the touchpad
Automatically fixed.

- The excessive Load Cycling problem
Automatically fixed.
At your choice, you can change the default options for laptop-mode in /etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf file. More informations here.

- Update ALSA drivers
Just install the alsa-modules package.

- Enable the FN-F4 key
Check this howto for more info.

All you have to do now is to setup all the remaining unused FN keys the way you want, you can find more instructions here.

Happy 'ubuntuing' with your NC10! ;)


Thanks for this post :). Took me some time to dig it up. I'm very much a dinosour and prefer to use the old method to install Ubuntu. I'll let you know how I get on.
