This page is a collection of problems you might encounter with your Maemo device, and suggestions for resolving them. Steps go from mildest to the most extreme solution in order.


Boot issues

See troubleshooting boot issues

Menu issues

If, after installing an application, there are no applications in your main application menu, try troubleshooting menu issues.

Performance issues

Is your device sluggish and unresponsive?

Check if unnecessary applications run in background

Run the task switcher and close all applications that aren't needed.

How do you run the task switcher? I can't find any application by that name. --Dave Neary 17:11, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Uninstall or remove applets

Applets running on your desktop, or in the system tray, can affect the battery life and performance adversely. If in doubt, remove applets and widgets you have installed, restart your device, and see if the performance has improved.

Remove possible unstable applications

If you have enabled Extras-devel -repository, you should look at the list of extras-devel programs and see if you have something installed from there.

Programs can interfere with each other. The cause of the problems are most probably newly installed application so those should be uninstalled at inverted order: most recently installed first. After each uninstall, check if the problem disappears before uninstalling other software.

Last straw

Updating the tablet firmware is the last straw. It deletes all user data and reverts all settings to default.
