I have an HP Mini 110 1116NR netbook. When I first install Ubuntu Netbook Remix on there, bluetooth works out of the box, but wifi doesn’t. If I enable and activate the Broadcom STA wifi drivers from the Karmic repository, wifi works upon reboot, but bluetooth no longer works. However, I have found a way to get the wifi working and keep the bluetooth working as well! All you have to do is download the Lucid Lynx version of the bcmwl-kernel-source package which is available here. Once you get connected to the internet (try to connect via ethernet), double-click on the package you downloaded and allow it to download and install all dependencies and then allow it to install. Reboot, and your wifi will now work, and your bluetooth should still work!

I would like to announce my future plans for XXCE.

  1. There will ALWAYS be an Xfce edition of XXCE. The Xfce edition of XXCE is the main edition.
  2. I plan on making XXCE 5.0 and base it on a coming beta build of Xubuntu Karmic.
  3. I have not decided on the future of LXDE editions of XXCE.
  4. I am seriously considering doing an Enlightenment E17 edition of XXCE. If this is pursued, I will do E17 editions of XXCE 2.x, XXCE 3.x, XXCE 4.x, and XXCE 5.x.
  5. I am considering making my own XXCE CDs (for those who don’t have the time or the bandwidth or the ability to download the ISOs and burn them to CD) and selling them. If the plan to sell CD copies comes to fruition, I plan on selling CDs for $10 each.
  6. XXCE 5.0 – which will be based on Xubuntu 9.10 Karmic – will be the final edition of XXCE to be based on non-LTS editions of Xubuntu. Starting with XXCE 6.0 (which will be based on Xubuntu 10.04 LTS), all editions of XXCE will be based on LTS editions of Xubuntu.
