    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Thanks for the quick reply however!
    I went to your link and it says:
    "STOP PRESS: As of the update providing kernel 2.6.32-22 Wifi appears to work out of the box, thus rendering this article redundant."

    My problem started recently. I did notice the problem with the wi-fi and I believe it to be fixed with the above mentioned update. I'll try the fix just to be sure over the weekend unless anyone here thinks it to be redundant.

    Again thank y'all

    This page has a better description of how to install the driver (the link above deoesn't decribe how to remove the ubuntu driver). Installing the Realtek driver stoped my connection dropping as often and I get a better reception. I had to reinstall it after a kernel update though, as it went back to using the Ubuntu driver.

    thanks a lot mate! was waiting for a tutorial!
    it worked, after a bit of here and there!

    Hi Lovefro, I know the article says it works out of the box - it does, but not as well. Having used the official Realtek driver for a while now it definitely works better. I noticed that the reception went down after upgrading the kernel (and reverting to the old driver).

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Good news everyone!
    I finally got my hands on the new Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 13 NV12YMD, that became available here on thursday.
    Primary new features are Intel Core i3-380UM 1.33GHz and 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM (PC3-10600).


    ***IMPORTANT BATTERY FIRMWARE UPDATE ONLY APPLICABLE FROM WINDOWS***

    There is an important firmware update for the battery that you, at the moment, can only install from windows. Make sure you install it before you purge windows from your harddrive.
    Version 1.02
    [Important] Fixed an issue where the battery indicated incorrect full charge capacity then the battery life might be reduced.
    You can install the update with this utility, or from the preinstalled ThinkVantage Toolbox.
    Based on this link, I don't think there's any other way of doing the update.

    Functionality

    No major problems, all function buttons, networking, suspend, webcam and wifi works.

    BIOS
    The system uses a new BIOS, version starts with 84, see below.
    Code:
    *-firmware
              description: BIOS
              vendor: LENOVO

              capacity: 4032KiB
              capabilities: pci pnp upgrade shadowing escd cdboot acpi usb biosboots
    Hibernation
    Works, albeit very slowly. Might be due to low swappiness.

    Microphone
    Works after unmuting, had to increase input volume to max to be audible in skype.

    Sound
    Fix still works. Append
    Code:
    options snd-hda-intel model=olpc-xo-1_5
    to the end of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

    TouchPad/TrackPoint
    TrackPoint scrolling works via gpointing-device-settings after following this guide.
    Haven't got two-finger scrolling working yet. Have disabled TouchPad in favor of TrackPoint because of this.
    gpointing-device-settings are forgotten after suspend, but work after reboot. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...gs/+bug/489830

    Wireless-N
    Is currently software disabled, works after applying the solution from this post. The Intel Centrino Wireless-N only operates in the 2.4GHz sprectrum, although 300Mbps is theoretically possible I only achieve 65Mbps at the moment.

    Not tested
    eSATA
    Bluetooth (Disabled)
    HDMI
    Qualcomm Gobi-2000 WWAN (Not detected?)
    VGA-out

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    I have the thinkpad edge AMD model. When plugging in after running from batter the system will freeze. Disabling CPU scaling in the bios prevents this, but battery life is very poor after. Is there a solution to this?

    Thanks

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Hey, I still have many Problems with Ubuntu 10.10 and my Edge 11 AMD Version.
    On 24 or 25 of Dezember I made an auto-Update of Ubuntu, since this Update my Wifi does not work any longer. (Installed the Realtek Driver as descriped) I tried to install the driver again, but it dont solved my Problem. So I only have Internet connection via Ethernet.

    (Other Problems: Sound via Headphones dont work and the internal Mic)

    I am very bad in Ubuntu, so I would need something like an description for dummies


    Thank u all for trieing to help me.


    PS: I googled my problem but I dont found anything similuar, but I think it must be something, maybe my english is to bad to find the solution in other forums.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    The fix to the headphone/speaker sound problem (appending an option to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf) didn't work for me. I made a work-around:
    Code:
    #! /usr/bin/env python
    # sound fix
    
    import alsaaudio
    
    # get speakers and headphones
    Speakers = alsaaudio.Mixer("Speaker")
    Headphones = alsaaudio.Mixer("Headphone")
    
    # switch volumes
    if Speakers.getvolume()[0] == 0:
        newSpeakerVolume = 100
        newHeadphoneVolume = 0
    else:
        newSpeakerVolume = 0
        newHeadphoneVolume = 100
    
    # set volumes
    Speakers.setvolume(newSpeakerVolume, alsaaudio.MIXER_CHANNEL_ALL)
    Headphones.setvolume(newHeadphoneVolume, alsaaudio.MIXER_CHANNEL_ALL
    with python-alsaaudio.
    Then I made a keyboard shortcut to run it. It seems to work pretty well so far.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    @yyon
    First question is this proceder for "EDGE 11"?

    I tried ur way, but I must do something wrong, first I installed python-alsaaudio, then I tipped the code into Terminal, but there come only errors...

    Maybe u can tell me what I do wrong. (Tried to open the file manual, but I can not write there...)

    I must say, I am very new on Ubuntu, excuse my stupid questions.

    Thank U

    PS. I postet 2 days ago something about my Wifi, maybe u can help me there to, or give me a Tip, where I can found help?
