Ubuntu 8.10 on Toshiba R10-10W
I just delivered my new notebook Toshiba Tecra R10-10W. It was pre-installed with Vista, but I would like to use Ubuntu and XP.
I made 5 partitions (1 ntfs xp, 2 - test maybe later on Mac OS, 3 extended, 5 - ext3 ubuntu, 6 fat32 data).
For the first look the system semms to be ok.
I was using Ubuntu quite a time, but all the time there was something wat was not working 100% for me, but now I decided to install all the stuff for it - in between maybe learn linux a bit. Wright now I an using GNOME but also some KDE applications (like K3b, Ktorrent).
What is working:
Bluetooth, network, wifi, sound, SD card reader, ... and maybe a lot of thing what I did not recognize/mentioned here
What is not working - hardware stuff:
Suspend and hibernate - after suspend the monitor did not came back
Fingerprint reader - AES1600 on usb
I seted up the backlight for my screen to 80% but afre log in it comes with 100% and than goes back to 80%
I checked 'dim dislpay when idle' - it is working but sometimes - I do nothing - and is it blinking back to normal backlight
What is not working - software stuff:
Confirm file operation in Gnome
Delete in gnome - if I delete in gnome it goes without notification into trash (press del button) - configrm_trash in gnome-editor is checked
move - if I accidently move a folder to an another it is moved without notification (it is happening sometimes with tachpad)
Sound in Skype - is says the sound device is used by another program/process (ver. from skype page .deb version 8.04+)
There is a switch (on/off) on the side of notebook to turn on wireless genaral - there is a switch on keyboard to turn on (fn + f8 ) - it is only on when I turn on both - how sould it work? I miss the point why shoud I turn on something 2 times?
Not tested yet
Webcam, external monitor, e-sata, 3g
