The first Easy Peasy 1.1 Release Candidate, we got out last Friday, didn’t work as expected. It was due to a packaging problem. One of the main contributors to the project, Ferry Hendrikx, has taken it upon himself to fix it. That means we’ll have a v1.1 RC2 out any day now.

Here’s a screenshot of the new webpage, to keep you from bouncing off the walls :p

    I like the new webpage layout :)

    I loved Easy Peasy the moment I boted it up on my HP Mini 1000. Finally a good looking Linux distro for us netbook guys! Then, the awful reality hit me. This distro wasn’t for netbooks, it was just for Eee PC’s (Even though it says it’s for other Netbooks too). Everything appears to work except both the wired and wireless network interfaces. The operating system sees and identifies them but, can’t communicate with them. No easy way to fix it either, just look at the forums!!

    So, here you have this outstanding Linux distro (I still love the look of it) that is confined to Eee PC’s. I do hope you consider other brand netbooks a bit more. The minute your distro can support the HP Mini, I’ll be back to it in a flash!!

    Keep up the good work and expand your horizons to other branded netbooks.


    P.S. Why does the new webpage layout look like a Mac Power Book???

    What happened to the green and yellow colouring. The blue has been done before.

    It’s a pleasure to meet you. My name is Willy from Italy. I’m a seller and I’m very interested in diffusing Ubuntu here into the Italian culture. I’m not so expert on Linux, but I learn quickly :-) I discovered Easy Peasy only yesterday, so now i’m going to try It on my new Packard Bell DOT (Acer One). Have a nice sunday and see you soon!

    The webpage for Easy Peasy looked great. Seems very focused on what is important, downloading EP!

    Andy Kenney, it’s suppost to look like a netbook :)

    lol, cool – is it running smoothly?

    Hi guys, I’m italian and have a problem.

    I have an ACER ASPIRE ONE A110 with 3G-modem embedded

    The name of the modem 3g embedded is GTM380 E, product by OPTION.

    I installed EeasyPeasy 1.0 and everything works. But when I try to connect with 3G I have problems. I set up my mobile connection in the NetWork Manager, and I’m sure to have put in the right configuration. Then I click on NetworkManager and select my new mobile connection, it tries to connect but nothing works, it tries for some minutes and then stops trying without any results.

    What’s the problem? Help me, please.

    glad to see progress is being made on 2.0. I put version 1 on my Father’s eee pc it is working well. Faster load time will be appreciated.

    Cheers, Jon.

    Any release notes with 1.1rc2? Changelog?

  12. Serola March 26, 2009 at 9:06 am #

    EP 1.1 rc2 is out at

    Release-notes/Change-log available at Easy Peasy wiki. Search for ‘blueprint’ ;)

    I wish I could just ditch my jobbie to work on projects like this. Many people are using eee these days like never before, so this project got a lot of weight on its shoulders. Anywho if _any_ help is needed, I could prolly assist ;)

  14. Serola March 26, 2009 at 3:33 pm #

    @ sorcer, join EP forums and IRC to see what you can do ;)

  15. NICO March 27, 2009 at 1:53 pm #

    Hey, I did a new system update and the problem I wrote about was resolved, noy my 3G connection works.

    Another question: is there aby chanche to have a better version of the NetWork Manager, to be able to set the type of connection (3g, only umts, only gprs) and the amount of MB exchanged during the session?


  16. Peter March 27, 2009 at 11:41 pm #

    I saw the blueprint, but it doesn’t seem to include any features or a recognizable changelog. Any help? I’m really just looking for a description of 1.1 and its differences from 1.0.

  17. skippy April 2, 2009 at 2:54 am #

    I notice that your site does not display correctly on easy-peasy running on an Asus Eee 4G. The left side of the screen is cut off, even when scrolled as far left as possible. Is this a known problem? It makes your page impossible to read.

  18. Hart April 2, 2009 at 7:03 am #

    Same problem as skippy! frustrating! can’t read about my eee on my eee :P

  19. Neil April 2, 2009 at 11:15 am #

    I am new to Linux and have found the handling of wireless networking very frustrating and disappointing, until I found EasyPeasy1.0.

    It worked first time out of the box with my new MSI Wing U100.

    Not got any version going on my HP DV2104eu laptop. Yet.

    Looking forward to new releases

    Regards Neil

  20. Jon Ramvi April 2, 2009 at 2:13 pm #

    NICO, Glad you got the 3G connection to work. NetworkManager hasn’t been upgraded since November, but I bet Gnome have some great features up their sleeves for the 2.28 release this fall

    skippy, yeah I know. Sorry. Should really just get a new design soon..

    As Serola has answered: :)

    Peter, here’s the changelog: . There are no new features. Only bug fixes and new graphics

    sorcer, we need all the help we can get – Please come have a talk with us on the irc channel! #easypeasy on

    I have tried EasyPeasy 1.1 RC2 on my Eee 702 (same as 701, but with 8Go of SSD). It looks and feel much better than 1.0, but I have a couple of issues: the dark blue background is not dark enough, and that makes the screen a bit uncomfortable. My main issue is with the Wifi connection, it is not working well (it picks up the signal, but it’s impossible to access the internet). Wifi used to work with Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1, and it stopped since EasyPeasy 1.0.
