    Question Acer Aspire 8920G

    I want to buy a laptop Acer Aspire 8920G
    This laptop has a touch panel to manage player, audio system 5.1 and few additional buttons.
    I want to know how well this laptop is compatible with Ubuntu 8.04?

    Read about it here: http://www.laptopmag.com/review/lapt...pire-8920.aspx and http://review.zdnet.com/laptops/acer...920-6048/4505- 3121_16-33024473.html? Tag = ut

    Who something already put Ubuntu on this laptop?

    no sound at all even System beeps
    on two resolutions 800x600 and 640x4xx
    nd the refresh rate is wrong

    May work.
    Also see if the acerhk module is installed and working.

    I installed 32bit 8.04.1 using wubi in Vista on my new 8920G

    No sound but installing the restricted nvidia driver gave me 1920x1080 res so that's one problem I'm glad not to have. Did you try that glethro?

    Wireless works flawlessly too...
