Question about HP Mini 1000 Netbook

2 Answers

Msn? I have a HP mini 1110nr netbook, and i cant figure out how to install any programs on it. It comes with a built-in webcam, but the pidgin program for instant messaging on the computer does not support web-chat, so u can only take pics of yourself with the webcam. I tried to download msn, but because this netbook has a kernal linux o/s, you cant run executable files like within windows, i even tried to download another program called song bird, which is supposed to be similar to itunes for liunux, but i could not figure out how to install it. Does anyone know if there is a msn messenger and iTunes programs that are designed to work on my computer? Thanks Michelle

Well , right you are , pidgin does not support webchat.

You can definately run executables in linux, its just a little different from the way windows does it.

From what I can find about the interface for your OS, there should be an application launcher that you can use to browse to the program you downloaded. Even then it may not be compatible with the kernel you are running.

If you cant get to it that way you will have to open a terminal.

Fn-F2 brings up a command line where you can launch the terminal.

Depending on how it is setup, it should take you to a prompt in you /home directory.

You can then execute the file you downloaded by typing in ./filename

If that program you tried doesnt work , here is another that may.

How do you turn on a built in webcam on a eee pc netbook


The drivers for the webcam should be pre-installed on the netbook so that the webcam turns on whenever a program needs to use (e.g. msn chat).
If you want to take pictures (like photo booth on mac) you can try the website cameroid.com/.
If you want to use the webcam to record video you can follow this tutorial (http://www.wikihow.com/Record-from-a-Webcam) on wikiHow about recording to Windows from a webcam.
I hope this helps you out!

HP does not install any software to use your webcam, you must install an IM program to enable the camera.

Can not down load msn


If you have linux on your aspire 1 then you can't use the original messenger because it is made for windows systems. you can try using it with Wine or find a linux messenger replacement.

for example Pidgin works with MSN accounts and it has a linux version.
