    Ubuntu 14.04 server CD (to install minimal desktop)

    Everything works, including Optimus (Bumblebee).

    I have to select the 2nd sound card as the default one; ~/.asoundrc

    Code:
    defaults.pcm.card 1
    defaults.ctl.card 1

    Talking Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Lenovo IdeaPad P400 Touch
    http://mobilesupport.lenovo.com/us/e...ments/PD026485

    Running 14.04 LTS and all hardware is 100% functional right after install.

    I was previously running 12.04 LTS with minor problems regarding the touchscreen.

    Performance is great. I have upgraded to SSD and additional memory.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1- Ubuntu Version / 14.04

    2- Manufacture / Toshiba

    3- P55-A5312

    (Upgraded to SSD w/Win 8.1)
    (replace DVD/Rom with 1TB drive(with a few EXT4 partitions))

    UPDATE>>> Have found I have fan issue...not working!! Post back after I have this fixed

    Must say, IF you "CLONE" windows, make sure you are using the proper software, WHICH SHOULD INCLUDE BOOT FILES

    Mine did not... I used EasyBCD to fix that issue....DO NOT USE EASYBCD TO FIX BOOTING OF WINDOWS, It will make it rather hard to get back into Windows (Win 8.1 at least) when installing Ubuntu

    At present, VERY pleased. Seems as if everything is working properly, not over heating. 1080 screen looks awesome. (might look into new Intel drivers for Ubuntu) Touch Pad works.
    No real issue or problem.
    Highly recommend a SSD for main drive, huge difference (older system was on XP, platter drive,Ubuntu upgrade from 12.xx to 13.xx)
    Thanks for reading, hope I this ups someone

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1 - Ubuntu 14.04
    2 - PCSpecialist / Clevo
    3 - Ultranote II / W550SU1

    You can't touch this for £570. Intel i7-MQ4702 Quad-core CPU, 8Gb HYPER-X 1600Mhz RAM, 500Gb HD, 1920x1080 IPS screen. I would like to get an SSD later but I wanted to keep the purchase cost down.

    When I installed Ubuntu 14.04, everything worked OOB except for the wireless networking. Command line solutions by others using the same wireless adapter with linux did not seem to work so I ordered the Intel 5100 mini pcie adapter which only cost £6 and was very easy to swap.

    Thumbs up Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1: Ubuntu 14.04 x64
    2: Toshiba
    3: Toshiba Satellite L755D-S5130

    Ubuntu installed without a problem on 2 of this model of laptop. All hardware was found and works.
    Prior to installing Ubuntu I upgraded the BIOS from v1.5 to v2.0(recommended).
    BIOS v2.1(enabling Win8 support) causes the battery to not be found by Linux, still works but gives you no management over it.
    I haven't followed up on this, I just reverted to v2.0 and the problem went away.
    Performance Build: i5 2500, 8GB, GTX 460 v2
    Old Build: Intel P4 3.0GHz HT 533 MHz, 2.5GB 400MHz, ATI Radeon 9600 128MB AGPx8
    R.I.P: GeForce 6200 256MB 64-bit, you served well.

    Dug out an ancient HP Mini 210-1040NR with dual processors (1.66 GHz Intel Atom). Installing Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 because in the try first mode, it performed as well as, if not better than Win7 starter.
    I'm a hopeful newbie - plan to use this machine with Arduino to build and run some devices. Doesn't seem like I'll be able to make it a netbook anyway.

    Welcome. Just a tip: In case you need any help with 10.10 in the future, we do not support end of life releases here. Please read this:

    EOL release recommendations:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2229730

    10.10 has been dead for a long time and wouldn't use if you are intending to go online with it. If you're using it offline with Arduinos, all good.

    You might be able to get a more recent, supported version going with a minimal install and a lighter flavour. See below.

    To the topic: A friend brought round an old Dell D420, Duo Core 1.7 (from memory) and 1Gb of RAM. She desperately needs to use the machine for uni starting next week until she buys a new one later in the year.

    The RAM ended up being stuffed. I happened to have a couple of 1Gb sticks hanging about so replaced that, did a 14.04 LTS minimal install and with Firefox, xfce4, Synaptics and a terminal installed so far, running great. Everything works 'out of the box' and it will definitely be up to emailing, online researching, Libreoffice and Zotero. She doesn't need much more.

    I know no one will probably buy this laptop anymore which is pretty old. But my grandmother uses it as a facebook machine.
    First off, when booting the Live CD/DVD/USB, you have to push Esc and add the forcepae boot setting and navigate to Install.
    When you install, the additional drivers software says there is Broadcom STA driver to install. Do not install that, it hung on dpkg and gives your installation a hard time. I used an askubuntu link, (don't have it now) to install the drivers via LXTerminal and rebooted. When the machine booted back up, the wifi light turned on indicating sucess. It's a great champ of a machine.

    Works very nicely (but 2 RAM is better for multiple panes of Chrome,...), except for the install of Sketchup!

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Hi all.

    I'm using Linux Mint 17 MATE 64-bit. I recently bought the SCHENKER M704 laptop from. You can configure it to have no OS when buying.

    Most things work out of the box.

    Things that don't work (yet):
    • Airplane Mode function key.
    • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M video driver - that should work fine in time.
