Re: Karmic and HP Envy 15
It sounds like you updated to the close-sourced driver at some point in time. The closed source driver will NOT work with the latest version of X on Ubuntu (the one distributed with 9.10, for instance)- the update kills the machine, and I've not yet figured out how to back it out.
So... Just run the open source version of the driver- it works well enough for video- just no 3D acceleration.
Curious how you solved the Touchpad issues or are you just using a mouse? Have you had trouble burning CD's? Decent battery life? Did you get sound working?
I got much of it solved- PM me (or search the forums) if you've not gotten everything working. I'm good, all the way up to the CD burning.
