    needs proposed updates for video driver sanity. kernel 3.4 works best with the 12.8 fglrx driver in the proposed repo.

    Post Samsung NP700Z5C-S04US

    1) 12.04
    2) SAMSUNG
    3) NP700Z5C-S04US

    Everything works except for the following:
    • Keyboard backlit fN keys and the backlighting itself, all other fN keys work
    • No drivers for GT640M, tried Bumblebee 3.0 and that did not work
    • Fans run at almost max at idle or moderate CPU load and temps are 65-70C at idle
    • Some multitouch gestures do not work, the RMB physical key on the touchpad does not work


    Sleep/wake works with no problems. Battery life is terrible on Ubuntu(around 3-4hrs, compared to 6-7hrs on Win7 for me)

    The live cd/usb stick works out of the box, but it does not detect the hard drive(s). After following instructions in these forums to break the fake raid and disable quick boot (or something like that) in the BIOS, I was able to install Ubuntu to the 32 GB SSD and make roughly half of the 500 GB hard drive my home directory.

    I also decided to make the SSD bootable, so now I have two bootable drives I can choose from in BIOS if need be (hard drive straight to Windows, SSD straight to Linux).

    The function keys work, but the special keys assigned to the function keys do not. Other than that, everything works great.

    EDIT: More Info...

    After a while I started to experience freezes that could only be remedied by holding the power button. This was the case before and after tweaking the BIOS. I then tried opensuse using an identical setup (regarding the two bootable drives/partitions) and the only problem I'm having is the lack of special functions on function keys.

    Everything works out of the box, however, unity 3d does not work so well on the ATI HD4250. Switching to unity 2D drastically improves overall performance of the machine.

    This is due in part to OpenGL being enabled in compiz vs Metacity not having it enabled.

    The downside to this is the aerosnap feature will not work in Unity 2D

    1)Version Of Ubuntu: 11.10 (Intelx86)
    2)Laptop Maker: Mac
    3)Laptop Model: Macbook 2,1
    4)Known Issue: iSight webcam unstable for Adobe flash plugin

    Installed like usual on any compatible laptop. The iSight camera is the only problem I have found that I cannot fix either on my own or using the help of the ubuntu community, it crashes the Adobe plugin in all browsers.
    Other than that it works wonderfully!

    Talking Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Ubuntu 12.04

    Toshiba L775D

    AMD A4 Processor with ATI 6480 graphics

    640GB hard drive with 6GB of memory

    works perfect except sometime when I turn it on the mouse and the keyboard don't respond. Maybe 1 out out of 10 times.

    I'm now a proud owner of a Toshiba Satellite L875D-S7232 Laptop.

    AMD Processor (Quad Core)

    6GB Ram

    640 GB Hard Drive

    Everything appears to function just fine. All the function keys and hardware.

    UPDATED (10/22/12) : The RealTek Wifi requires the linux driver from RealTek to function properly there is a hanging/crashing issue with the Wifi using the supplied driver from Ubuntu.

    Using wired internet access, installing Lubuntu 12.04 worked perfectly.

    After applying updates and rebooting, the Intel Pro 2200 BG wirefree card was enabled using this advice.


    If anyone wants to experiment with enabling the extra buttons, this guide might be worth reading.
