    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    OK. I guess I'll be the first. I know this isn't even beta, but I was desperate.

    1. Ubuntu 13.04
    2. Toshiba
    3. Satellite U845-S406


    From the day I bought this ultrabook it was clear that I could not use Ubuntu on it... until now!

    Any derivative of Ubuntu (both 12.04 and 12.10) would overheat, lock up, and shut down my Satellite. I had to use OpenSuse because Fedora would not recognize certain hardware without jumping through some hoops.

    I was desperate to get back to Ubuntu, so I figured, "Why not try the most recent and unreleased?" 13.04 has run perfectly so far. It seems to have the right kernel and driver fixes to keep it running at an optimal temperature. Unlike 12.04 & 12.10, 13.04 recognized my Ivybridge graphics immediately (from the live thumb drive... the other two simply said unknown, even after the installation).

    Some good things on the horizon with 13.04 it seems!

    Everything works in a standard Xubuntu 12.04 installation. Remember to turn on the wifi switch on the front.

    Very Ubuntu friendly (12.10). Out of the box support for (although untested) bluetooth, wifi (tested), audio (tested). Keyboard shortcuts like volume don't seem to work, but that's just minor.

    fglrx installer doesn't work, so you'll be stuck with the open source radeon drivers.

    Hi.
    Thinking about getting an HP Pavilion DM1-4151NR with AMD E-450 processor. I want to run Ubuntu 12.04 or higher. How well do these play together?

    If this is redundant, I apologize. I've searched and can't find this machine anywhere in the forums. That strikes me as ominous, but I remain optimistic.

    Thanks.

    Card reader need drivers as well. This is how:

    wget http://planet76.com/drivers/realtek/...ms_1.1_all.deb
    sudo apt-get install dkms
    sudo dpkg -i rts-bpp-dkms_1.1_all.deb
    echo 'DRIVERS=="rts_bpp", ENV{ID_DRIVE_FLASH_SD}="1"' | sudo tee -a /lib/udev/rules.d/81-udisks-realtek.rules

    restart, done.

    I found it here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ks/+bug/971876
    I test on Mint 14.1 64 bit but I guess on Ubuntu you need them as well.
