Installing Ubuntu 11.10 on my Asus k53sv.
Just tested the live CD:
- Mousepad two finger scroll working
- FN and F1 to F12 keys working:
- Volume up
- Volume down
- Blank Screen
- Disconnect Network
- Skip Forward
- Skip Backward
- Optimus Intel/Nvidia swap. DMESG mumbles about Nouveau and DRM... Looking up a solution to pull the Nvidia down and the Intel up on the 11.04 Asus threads.
I think that is it.
Track pad stopped working after sleep. Only happened once.
After install, I've followed this 15 things I did after installing Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot, but didn't install Gnome Shell since Unity was all the eye candy I was looking for nor did I install the Proprietary Hardware Drivers. I'll get to that latter.
I followed Cusician's thread here for this, but there were some changes and new dependencies.
After instillation, the following text shows:sudo apt-get install git
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install virtualgl
git clone https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/Bumblebee
(Don't install the Bumblebee-ui. It's experimental and doesn't work with the notification area.)===== Installation finished =====
