    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    I have used long time a Dell M1330 with Ubuntu 8.04, 9.04, 10.04 and 12.04. It has worked perfectly (wireless, bluetooth, mouse, keyboard, screen adaptors, ethernet, mobile broadband). I think Dell is one of teh best options for Ubuntu compatibility.

    Another Daniel here.

    I posted (#807) previously, but have since upgraded.
    My Compaq Presario CQ56 133SF (low-end laptop bought in 2011) works fine under Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, except for the fan that runs a lot when charging. (I added a large non-OEM battery, but I can just charge up at night. I don't really know for sure).

    I tried various things with the fan problem. I can't remember exactly how, something to do with the configuration of laptop-mode-tools, editing of laptop-mode.conf, and installation of a few extra packages from the repos I think. And then a reboot. If anyone's interested in the next few months, PM me and I could try and find the source threads I used.

    HP Envy dv7t-7200 Nvidia GT 630M 2gb and Intel 4000 was detected. Everything running smoothly. Running on Ubuntu 13.04. The only thing not detected was the finger scan.

    ==========

    It all depends on the kernel (Linux Mint 15 which I installed comes with 3.8):

    • 3.8 locks up randomly and you have to hold down the power button
    • 3.9 the brightness control doesn't work (but nothing too major)
    • 3.10 two of the three USB ports don't work
    • 3.11 perfect!

    So you have to use the mainline kernels [1] to upgrade if you have the above problems. However, at the time of writing the wireless driver bcmwl-kernel-source was not available *in the repos* for 3.9 or above. So if you have problems with the wireless after upgrading the kernel, you have to run sudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source and then manually install the latest .deb for the driver [2].

    Now that I am on 3.11 and have the wireless working again, everything really does work great. Although it took a lot of fiddling round to get it to work, I hope this post helps someone else with this laptop. Personally I think it's a great computer. I also got 10% off it when buying online by asking for a discount in live chat. The manufacturing time was pretty bad really, but to me it was worth the wait.

    Everything works but having to get broadcom wireless to work was hard and had to install the firmware for sta driver as b43 does not support the wireless card.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    I don't know if this was already listed, but here is my try.

    Laptop: Lenovo Thinkpad T61 (non Nvidia)
    Distro: Xubuntu 12.10

    Almost 99% compatible. No privative drivers needed, sound, brightness, sleep... everything OK.

    Only got some problem when using wine and pulseaudio, it's a mess... but it isn't Ubuntu fault

    Oh, i forgot my other laptop.

    Lenovo G450.

    Needs privative drivers for wifi, but works good. You can't audit networks.

    Acer aspire 532h-2db does work out of the box with Ubuntu 13.04 32bit!
    Only you have to install the intel open source drivers and it runs really smooth!
