    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Lenovo T60
    Fresh install of 12.04 LTS

    Mostly works, but I frequently get into a state where I can not click on anything. The mouse moves but nothing responds to keyboard or mouse input. Only way I've found out is to reboot.

    Thanks Terry for the good video review and your notes here.
    I'm not a dev but can help dig for answers to these issues once my 700Z7C arrives.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Any feedback yet concerning Lenovo T430 laptops?

    Before installing Ubuntu I am interested in knowing if there would be any need to install software such as thinkfan. Would be a basic T430 in fact; Intel graphics and wireless; no camera, nor fingerprint reader.

    Is not enough some testing with a Live CD? You can see the hardware compatibility not installing the OS but just keeping in the temporary memory. Just burn it and boot from a cd.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding -- to rephrase it correctly, the laptop has not been bought yet. Though, Ubuntu would be the operating system of choice on it for sure.

    I am thinking of this thread as a viable place (short of creating a separate thread) to ask for compatibility degree towards it, especially since no thorough examination seems to have been posted on the web regarding the ralationship between such laptops and Precise.

    Everything seems to work out of the box with 2 minor exceptions:


    1. The display is corrupted with graphical artifacts on boot - http://i49.tinypic.com/4l4l6a.png - but resolves itself after switching resolutions then reverting back. Sometimes requires more than one attempt (have not tested Bumblebee).

    2. The WiFi card stops working and is unable to recover after going into standby.


    Hope this helps!

    Model : A43E-VX389D

    Everything is fine but the monitor : ,

    Just like TerryMasters, the prob is solved if I maximized the window, or drag/ move the window. Sometimes it wont disappear by just resize the window. So I have to double the way I maximized/ minimized/ moved the position, till the error gone.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    @thom_: what is your video card and what driver are you using ?

    (to know which video card, do:
    Code:
    lspci | grep VGA
    ... and post the output in a new thread, we can maybe help)

    You guys need to try LinuxMint. They don't use the Ubuntu Unity crap. I'll post review and findings next week.
