    In the next couple of weeks i will be buying a second hand Alienware laptop from a guy in work. i would like to know if anyone has ever had one of these laptops and tried putting ubuntu onto them.

    the laptop will be coming with windows 7 64bit, not sure wether its proffesional or home etc. i'm thinking of keeping the windows in a partition and dual booting it with ubuntu.

    my main concern is if i was running the ubuntu side would the drivers still work for the backlit keyboards aswell as the many other lights that come with alienware.

    thanks in advance for any feedback.

    hi mick,

    i installed ubuntu on my m11xr1 yesterday.
    the lights will continue to act like they were set in windows
    before and you can change them using the tool pyAlienFX:
