Maybe im doing something wrong. I also dont know how to do highlandsun's suggestion of finding and deleteng the lucid driver in lib/modules
    I'm dual booting with windows 7 starter now and it works there.. Also, in case its relevant, im using 2.6.32-17-generic-pae kernel and it sees 3.7 out of the 4 gigs i put in.
    I'd rather plug the lan cable in Lucid than use wifi on windows but it would be perfect if i can also use wifi in lucid.
    Hope somebody may be able to help. Thanks!
    Would you mind telling us what your lspci output is? And is everything else working except for your wifi?
    Nothing beats the durability and quality of the Thinkpad put together with the brilliance and stability of Ubuntu Linux!

    Thinkpad T30, T40, T41p, T42, T43, T60, T61, R50, R61, Z61M, X31 ... all love Ubuntu!

    Heres the lscpi.

    I was able to get the wifi working already... ended up using sudo nautilus search in /lib/modules and sure enough there were 3 rtl8192se files there. wifi worked after those were deleted.

    I tried suspend and it worked too. Didn't try hibernate and the webcam. Regarding its bluetooth, if i shut down windows 7 with it turned on it will be on when i boot into Lucid. And vice versa. So I guess i'll be using Win7 as my glorified bluetooth switch..

    Oh yeah.. acpi -V says Thermal 0= 26.8 celsius so i guess there's something wrong there if it refers to the cpu temp.

    Anyways, Lucid is running fine so far. No freezes and other weird stuff.

    Sorry, powertop triggers a kernel panic on my 2.6.32.9 kernel. I'll have to try a newer kernel.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    I installed Lucid beta on my Intel Edge. The one problem I have is with sound: at first all worked as it should, until I hit the mute key. After that, I get sound coming out from internal speakers and headphones at the same time, or from speakers only when headphones plugged in. Tried restarting, but problem persists.

    Suspend and hibernate work fine, I haven't had a chance to check wireless yet. Webcam works.

    I have had the battery state indicating 8 hours after some tweaking with powertop and dimming the screen all the way down.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Just got my tp EDGE 13 (Intel version) yesterday in matte black casing

    I installed Win7 to see what it was like... I was surprised that there was stuttering on the desktop when moving windows/opening applications! I thought Win7 was better than Vista in respect to low powered laptops...oh well. So I booted into Ubuntu 10.04 beta, and what a difference! The desktop is very snappy even with full compiz compared to Win7. Haven't had chance to test everything yet but once I do i'll put it up on the Laptop testing page.

    By the way, was VERY pleased to see that the webcam worked OOTB as well as audio over HDMI!! But I had to select the correct output in the Sound options before I got audio over HDMI.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    I had got Wifi to work fine following the instructions earlier, but it looks to have broken after the Beta 2 update.

    Wireless networks are found and can be connected to, but after about 30 seconds the connection is lost (although it still says it is connected). Trying to reconnect fails until after a reboot.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    Anyone know a solution?

    Alex


    *** UPDATE ***
    I have managed to fix it...

    sudo nautilus and searched for any rtl8192se files in /lib/modules. Deleted them.
    Installed fresh drivers from Realteck as per instructions on page 1.
    Wireless connected straight away and stayed connected.
    Rebooted just in case! Working fine ever since

    If anyone has the same problem with sound I mention above (sound in both headphones and speakers), a fix can be found here:

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Hi,
    i plan to buy this laptop. I have some questions:
    1) Is it really (amd processor) capable to be used as main computer (+ external dvd drive)?
    2) Should i buy it if i intend to use linux as main system?
    3) How high is fan/noise level? (i use dell mini10v-fanless, and macbook white - has no disturbing noise leve)

    I think you should prefer intel version. I have 13" Intel version running ubuntu 9.10, no show stoppers, but audio and integrated 3G are pain. Gobi2000 firmware loading is not yet working without tweaking and audio is unable to mute speakers with headset attached.

    Noise level is nice, hardly nothing can be heard. Display is awesome, but touchpad is a bit in a way when using mouse buttons bellow it.

    Thanks for answer. I openned here one new thread:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1457175

    Well, i am inerested in amd version-i can get it for 399 EUR with 2GB Ram. And i have 2GB extra. So at the end i could have 4GB Ram. And the cheapest Intel version goes up to 600-650 EUR-and that is actually too expencive now for me.

    Thanks
