 +===== Notes =====
 +This netbook was tested with Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04.
 +==== Graphics ====
 +The Intel GMA 500 is not supported as standard by Ubuntu NBR so you will need to install the drivers manually, here is how with Ubuntu 9.04:
 +**1.** Go to [[https://​​~ubuntu-mobile/​+archive/​ppa?​field.series_filter=jaunty]] and follow the instructions on adding their repository.
 +**2.** Install the psb packages needed with:
 +<​code>​sudo apt-get install libdrm-poulsbo1 xserver-xorg-video-psb</​code>​
 +**3.** Restart the netbook.
 +That should be it but this is just a basic 2D driver, the special visual effect wont work.
 +I plan to write a few guides on installing this driver on other Linux distributions but for now this will only work with Ubuntu 9.04.
 +===== Summary =====
 +The is some configuration work required to get the most out of the Acer Aspire One 751. This is not the best netbook to use with Linux but still runs reasonably well.
