  1. [ubuntu] Re: 13.04 :: Dell XPS 15 (L521X) :: NOT L502X/L512X/15z

    What about installing the nvidia drivers on this model? I'm not having much success.
  2. [ubuntu] Re: 13.04 :: Dell XPS 15 (L521X) :: NOT L502X/L512X/15z

    The thing is, I thought Ubuntu supported secure boot as of 12.10. No reason not to use it if it works, but so far, that doesn't seem to be the case, so I'm still stumped by this.
  3. [ubuntu] Re: 13.04 :: Dell XPS 15 (L521X) :: NOT L502X/L512X/15z

    Well, if I'm installing from a separate drive, it shouldn't make any difference, right? I probably didn't turn secure boot off. I'll do that when I get the second drive installed and I'll report...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: 13.04 :: Dell XPS 15 (L521X) :: NOT L502X/L512X/15z

    You just need to turn secure boot off to make it work?

    Does turning it off impact the Win-doze 8 installation or boot?
  5. [ubuntu] Re: 13.04 :: Dell XPS 15 (L521X) :: NOT L502X/L512X/15z

    How can I install Ubuntu 13.04 on the L521X?

    The UEFI boot thing has me all confused.

    If I want to add a second internal HD instead of the CD ROM, and boot Ubutu from that, how would I do it?

    I'm not sure how to use it.
  7. [ubuntu] Re: How to increase brightness sensitivity range?

    Sorry, but do you mean did I run it?

    I ran it via terminal, but nothing happened.


    Was I supposed to do something else with it?

    Maybe I missed something.
  8. [ubuntu] Re: How to increase brightness sensitivity range?

    Well, if I have 16 settings, why are there only five levels available?

    At the lowest setting, 0, I can push the button four more times to reach 15.

    I'll try the script and report back.

    Edit:...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: How to increase brightness sensitivity range?

    It gives me an output of 15
  10. [ubuntu] How to increase brightness sensitivity range?

    Is there any way to increase the sensitivity of the brightness settings on my laptop? I have a Dell Vostro V131.

    [ubuntu] Re: Dell Vostro V131

    I tried 12.04 on my V131 with 8GB of memory and a 160GB SSD. The fan runs far too much under the standard kernel and the battery life suffers greatly. I can get 9 hours of real use out of it easily...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    Has anyone been able to get the 3.4 kernel to work with the Catalyst 11.4 drivers?
  14. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    What's the simplest way to remove the 12.3 and install 12.4? I tried to just run it, and it worked, but it did not install the newer version. It's just the old version 12.3 still.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    are they the same as the restricted drivers that are installable in 12.04?

    [ubuntu] Re: Does Unity 2D save battery?

    I assume in that case, that since I'm using an AMD E-450 with the Radeon on the same die, it won't make much difference.

    [ubuntu] Does Unity 2D save battery?

    Just wondering. Does running the 2D version of Unity save battery life in a laptop? Is there any functional negative to doing so, other than less eye candy than the standard Unity?

    Re: Catalyst 12.3 released (fglrx 8.951)

    The post release drivers would not install for me on daily build of 12.04 out of the box last week.

    Not sure if this has been fixed recently.

    Sorry, but how do you get it?
  20. [ubuntu] Does apt-get update give me the same as the Daily Builds?

    Does doing a daily sudo-apt-get update && upgrade give me the same software updates as installing the daily build would?

    Absolutely. I'll second that.

    Yeah, sorry. I didn't mean to sound insulting. I hope that this is a good sign and that the restricted drivers work out of the box, because I cannot use this laptop without Ubuntu. Sony's drivers do...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    The current driver is 8.95.1 so that means it will be updated.

    Thanks. I'll probably use the repo version on the final release. I'm running a daily build now with the blob version.
