    [ubuntu] Re: HP Envy 17 works great with Ubuntu 10.10

    If you are just using it for business, everything works fine. Wifi works, trackpad (no right click though but I use an external mouse).

    What about Hybrid gfx?

    Do we have to wait to get switchable gfx working?

    I want to use the Radeon HD 6850 since this is a desktop replacement and battery life is not a consideration.

    On mine, the headphones are muted by default in Kubuntu 11.04. Unmuting in Alsamixer fixes that.
