Install linux mint debian edition xfce (lmde) 201109 in samsung n150plus netbook

1. To install in an usb lmde:

– Format usb stick with gparted. Create a partition fat32, or the whole usb stick. Edit flags: mark boot.

– Use unebootin to install lmde.

2. Boot from usb and install lmde. Install grub in /dev/sda.

3. Boot from intalled lmde.

The first thing you need to do is to change your Multimedia and Security repositories. Edit your APT sources by typing the following command:

gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Within this file, replace the following:

Replace with
Replace with

Your APT sources, should now look like this:

deb debian main upstream import
deb testing main contrib non-free
deb testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb testing main non-free

Save and close the file.

Uninstall gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad.

Update system.

5. Install install keyboard controls for SAMSUNG netbook. Install PPA:

Add this to sources.list:

deb oneiric main
deb-src oneiric main

Then add key for ppa:

sudo apt-key adv –keyserver –recv-keys 1E5F36F0

Afterwards update repositories and install samsung-tools and samsung-backlight:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install samsung-tools samsung-backlight

Now you have to edit the configuration files:
sudo gedit /lib/udev/rules.d/95-keyboard-force-release.rules

Note: in the samsung section you will see a line with *N130*|*N140* etc. add your model number there (don’t forget to Save). For example mine is N148 plus but I added |*N148*| and it works.

Also run:
sudo gedit /lib/udev/rules.d/95-keymap.rules

Add your model number if it isn’t already there (don’t forget to Save).

Finally, restart your computer.

The first part loads the samsung tools and backlight utility. This will also get some of your other function keys working. You can see the mappings in System>Samsung Tools Preferences.
The second part gets the mappings working for the Fn-up and Fn-down keys. it also keeps the Fn-keys from going crazy by forcing them to release after being pressed.

After that I disabled the voria ppa.

6. TOUCH PAD FIX. Go to the terminal and type:

sudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf

then replace with:

Section “InputClass”
Identifier “touchpad catchall”
Driver “synaptics”
MatchIsTouchpad “on”
Option “TapButton1” “1”
Option “VertEdgeScroll” “1”

Then save the file, close gedit. NOTE: In a HP Compaq nx7400 I had to not copy the row “Option “VertEdgeScroll”. If I copied it, system DIDN’T BOOT.

go back to the terminal and type: sudo reboot

log-in and test the touch pad by tapping on it to open files

7. Install Broadcom drivers for wifi:

Instala module-assistant,

# apt-get install module-assistant


# module-assistant auto-install broadcom-sta

Esto va a descargar la fuente (el paquete broadcom-sta-source), descomprimir, compilar, crear un paquete Debian (broadcom-sta-modules-[version]-[arquitectura].deb) con el módulo compilado e instalarlo.
module-assistant se encarga de instalar todos aquellos paquetes necesarios para realizar todas estas operaciones.

Antes de cargar el módulo en el núcleo, deshabilita el módulo brcm80211,

# echo blacklist brcm80211 >> /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf

luego recrea el ramdisk de inicio,

# update-initramfs -u -k `uname -r`

y remueve módulos que producen conflicto con wl,

# rmmod -f b44 b43 b43legacy ssb brcm80211

Carga el módulo en el núcleo,

# modprobe wl

Una vez realizados estos pasos, ya deberíamos tener nuestra tarjeta inalamabrica configurada, sino nos aparecen las redes disponibles, tendremos que reiniciar el equipo para que se realicen los cambios
