    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Just to let you all know, after upgrading to the latest 2.5.35-24 I seem to have lost my freezing issues due to the DSDT table.

    Now I have only tested this for about 6 hours but after numerous reboots and updates poweroffs etc I am yet to get the issue. I will keep you posted.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Running Ubuntu 10.10 on the Thinkpad Edge with the 11 inch screen and intel CPU. Worked out of the box for me.

    Thank you all for contributions on this thread, it made the decision about installing Ubuntu and my laptop selection a lot easier.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    I have Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS running on my Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15 NVLGPMH (with Intel Core i3 370M) and suspend works fine. But when waking from hibernate, system freezes when the display comes up (the last one seen when hibernation started).

    Any ideas?

    dmesg does mention:
    [ 14.851351] thinkpad_acpi: Not yet supported ThinkPad detected!
    Windows 7 for Media Production, Ubuntu 12.04/Cinnamon for other work.
    Xubuntu 12.04 as Media Center, CentOS 5.6 as server.

    Code:
    1. Introduction
    
    The TrackPoint is the red nub in the middle of the keyboard and the three buttons right below the keyboard. By default Press-To-Select, the process of pushing down on the TrackPoint to click, is turned off. Also, by default the TrackPoint's middle click performs the Paste function.
    
    In this tutorial I will describe how to adjust these settings activate the middle click scroll and Press-To-Select similar to Windows.
    
    2. Configure TrackPoint Middle Mouse Scroll
    
    I wanted to configure the middle click on the TrackPoint to scroll just like in Windows so I used the following commands to achieve it.
    
    2.1: Find the ID number for the TrackPoint
    
    The first step is to find the xinput id number for the IBM TrackPoint. Run the following command.
    
    xinput list
    
     
    
    You should receive all the available devices for xinput. One of the devices should say:
    
    "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint"    id=9    [XExtensionPointer]
        Type is MOUSE
        Num_buttons is 5
        Num_axes is 2
        Mode is Relative
        Motion_buffer is 256
        Axis 0 :
            Min_value is -1
            Max_value is -1
            Resolution is 1
        Axis 1 :
            Min_value is -1
            Max_value is -1
            Resolution is 1
    
     
    
    Or something very similar. The "id=#" is the important number we will be using in the following commands. Later it will save the headache of typing that very long device name.
    
    2.2: TrackPoint Middle Mouse Scroll
    
    Next run the following commands to enable the middle mouse scroll.
    
    xinput set-int-prop # "Evdev Wheel Emulation" 8 1
    xinput set-int-prop # "Evdev Wheel Emulation Button" 8 2
    xinput set-int-prop # "Evdev Wheel Emulation Timeout" 16 200
    
    *** Replace # with the id number for the TrackPoint from the previous command.
    
    Now you should be able to middle scroll by pressing the middle mouse button for the TrackPoint and moving the TrackPoint up and down.
    
    3. Enable Press-To-Select
    
    Press-To-Select is the process on pushing down on the TrackPoint to click on objects.
    
    In the directory "/sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/serio2/" There is a file called "press-to-select". That is the file we will be focusing on.
    
    3.1: Change directory
    
    Open up the terminal and change the directory to "/sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/serio2/"
    
    cd /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/serio2/
    
     
    
    3.2: Change Permissions of "press-to-select"
    
    Change the permissions of the "pres-to-select" file to allow others modify the file.
    
    sudo chmod o=rw ./press_to_select
    
     
    
    3.3: Turn on/off Press-To-Select
    
    To turn on/off Press-To-Select is just a matter of adding a 1 or 0 to the file.
    
    ~Turn Press-To-Select On~
    echo -n 1 >  /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/serio2/press_to_select
    
     
    
    ~Turn Press-To-Select Off~
    echo -n 0 >  /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/serio2/press_to_select
    
     
    
    Now you should be able to click by pushing straight down slightly on the TrackPoint.
    wow, thanks!!
    That worked perfectly!


    Very happy to have my trackpoint scroll back! You rock!
    Many thanks. <3

    When setting IDE ACPI to Legacy in BIOS, Hibernate does work (albeit is 1990s slow waking up). But this affects the eSata port.

    And the message still shows:
    Code:
    root@RedEdge:mysql$ dmesg | grep acpi

    Seems to be fixed in kernel 2.6.38.8. Cannot verify, I still have the message, maybe it's only for newer distro's than LTS.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    You can install the 2.6.38 kernel by temporarily enabling the lucid-propopsed (Pre-releases) repository, update, and run
    apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-backport-natty linux-headers-generic-lts-backport-natty
    as root.

    But, for me it makes things worse. Suspend doesn't work anymore. At least we had that in 2.6.32

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Hi , just Got 11.04 installed on a lenovo thinkpad Edge E325 (AMD Fusion) .

    Everything worked great, BUT , the fan is loud very often.

    It can be controlled easily with thinkfan, but first step is around 700 rpm which is already very loud.

    I've set first step to start at 59 Degrees Celsius, which is hit when you just browse a web page ....

    It seems that I'm hearing two fans but the sensors see twice the same it seems.

    then I guess the second loud fan should start at very high temps and the silent one should start first? anyone having infos on this ?

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Does there happen to be any people with experiences with Thinkpad Edge E325 or E320, and Ubuntu 11.04 installed? These laptops seem really interesting due to their excellent price/performance point, but compatibility with latest Ubuntu is a bit of a concern.

    In the Ubuntu Certified Hardware page it notes that E325 it is not yet fully certified for self-installation, so it might be interesting to hear more user & community experiences of either of these laptops with Ubuntu (if there are any)

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Hi all,

    I own a Thinkpad Edge 13, intel,

    with Intel Wifilink 1000,

    use lucid,

    everything works fine, except wifi. I have tried all things, no solution.

    I have installed realtek module,

    but in essence, my iwlagn driver works, but only when situated very close (within 2 metres) from wifi, and only when I set th rate to 54M. This is the behavior elsewhere too, very week performance of the wifi. Now I began to use a netgear wifi adapter, without it, my wifi is unusable.

    could anyone suggest the solution? this subnotebook is brand new, and this problem...
    no progress with natty, fedora, tried with live usb

    thank yout
