Adjustments after installation
We have deliberately decided not to offer any TUXEDO installation images. With installation images from us you would always be dependent on our images, i.e. "dependent" on us, which would contradict the Linux idea. In addition the maintenance of many different installation images is connected with very large expenditure and can never be as up-to-date and complete as the servers of the Linux distributions themselves. For this reason we offer installation support and instructions as well as driver packages. So you can adapt your system to your individual installation as we would do it. For this purpose we have the instructions to be found on these pages and an automatic adaptation script.
The script performs the driver installation, configurations for the special keys, TUXEDO driver installation, deactivation of the shopping suggestions in the Ubuntu search, for devices with NVIDIA graphics the corresponding drivers as well as switching links, laptop mode tools for better energy control and much more. It also checks if the drivers and configurations are already installed or have been executed and corrects them if necessary. You can safely execute the script several times. For other distributions only the driver can be used as .deb or .rpm package (e.g. with Debian on a TUXEDO Book).
· Please use the script only with TUXEDO notebooks with the distributions offered by us in the LTS variant. The script is not usable for PCs!
· With installations from TUXEDO factory or with WebFAI the use of the script is expressly not necessary. Please do not use the script to avoid possible conflicts!
· With older models, many drivers and adaptations are now supplied automatically with current distributions. Please execute the adjustment script only if a functionality is not given properly!
The script also adds our repository with the latest version of our own driver (Tuxedo-wmi) and other useful packages. This way everything can be kept automatically up-to-date.
1. Open a terminal (console, usually possible with the key combination CTRL+ALT+T) and log in as root to
2. For Ubuntu and Mint it is advisable to perform a dist-upgrade before the script:
apt-get update && apt-get -y dist-upgrade
3. Download the script at the bottom of this page. Please remember the directory in which you saved the download and then switch there:
For example, if the script file is located in the download folder of your home directory, you must enter cd Downloads/ at your terminal
4. Make the tuxedo.sh executable:
chmod +x tuxedo.sh
5. Execute it afterwards:
Now the script starts with its work. Sometimes a "Bad Trap" message is issued, just give the script a few minutes, then you will see the progress.
At the end it reports what it has done and whether there were errors or if everything was OK and, if necessary, prompts you to restart by pressing the Enter key. For example, if you see no green OK at the "Update" point, run the script again after 24 hours (point 4). It sometimes happens that the update servers of the distributions (therefore not the Tuxedo servers!) cannot be reached due to maintenance work.
