    axyelp: do you have the NVLDHGE model?
    looks like you have the exact same model as I have.

    out of curiosity, do you use UBUNTU (with Gnome) or KUBUNTU (KDE)?
    from what I've read only people with Gnome have posted their experiences....and I'm here alone struggeling with Kmix...maybe I should switch to Gnome

    so basically i now need to install the ubuntu-desktop package, to configure the microphone?

    that's a bit much effort to get a microphone working...hmm

    how did you "configure" the sound on gnome, before you used kmix
    what program on gnome, etc...

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    I bought this edge 14 i5 540M. my other reason for buying the intel version was the chipsets working out of the box. have tried various intel and nonintel(motherboards - asus n gigabyte) desktop machines and drivers has almost always been a pain. first reason was - i wanted a cooler machine.

    have updated the bios once through the thinkvantage suite on windows. all of the things worked well except for the multitouch and fingerprint reader.

    $ uname -a
    Linux zed 2.6.32-24-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Aug 20 14:21:58 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    $ lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
    Release: 10.04
    Codename: lucid

    this is my experience so far with this machine on ubuntu

    -battery life is barely above 2:30 hours. with heavy usage, about 2 hours.

    -got the multitouch working by installing gsynaptics, and using $synclient to enable/disable multitouch properties. i just run a script every login which sets it up. multitouch experience is far more responsive and beautiful compared to that on windows!

    -couldn't get fingerprint working whatsoever.

    -network manager could not detect my wifi network. did a full update via update manager, which did the job.

    -the wifi reconnection freezes the machine just too often.

    -cpu temperature: 39C-45C on nil/low load, 55C-65C on heavy load.

    -had to disable a number of services to keep the memory usage down. disabled bluetooth from starting by default to add to battery life.

    -using cpufreq-selector to change cpu frequency to 'ondemand'.

    -speakers/mic/speaker jack work out of the box.

    -disabled the new Fn-key behavior from bios. ctrl+alt+fn+f1 is just too much!

    -all fn keys work perfectly except for Fn+F4 which is supposed to switch off the mic. and couldn't get the point of Fn+F9. can't integrate Fn key in shortcut combinations.

    Hi,
    could anyone say how loud the fan under linux is? Is there some fan control tool working with edge?

    Thanks

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Just installed Lucid on a 14" Intel Edge. Couldn't get bluetooth to work no matter what I tried. Looking in the BIOS revealed no settings to turn BT on/off. I was almost convinced that Lenovo had failed to installed it. I finally tried the "reset to default" option in the BIOS and Lucid now sees my BT. Probably not Ubuntu specific, but I hope this helps someone.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    dear all,

    to keep you updated, i finally found the solution to my problem!!

    for anyone who's interested or has the same problem:

    i had to add the following line at the end of /etc/modprobe.conf/alsa-base.conf:

    options snd-hda-intel model="olpc-xo-1_5"

    i then rebooted, and then both the mic finally worked and the speaker allowed me a higher volume

    fan's as loud(i meant quiet) as in windows! i mean, its pretty inaudible!
    'thinkfan' available in the repo controls fan! i don't know how well it does, but at times i do feel the fan throwing air a little faster than normal, esp if its under load! so yes, i believe it does work!
