    @samahar:
    RTL 8192SE and 8172 are similar; you will NOT want an older version of Ubuntu, as the driver is a work-in-progress. The latest kernel may help (or linux-backport-modules/compat-wireless), or you may want to install the proprietary driver from Realtek. Ndiswrapper may be rather buggy with the 8192SE.

    - I figured on older version probably wouldn't work either... It is annoying when you can't use the OS you want. If you don't mind me asking how do I start doing a linux backport. I tried something with a backport yesterday and it didn't really work. I am thinking my command i used was for an older version of Ubuntu. I am sort of a novice user.

    Works well on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Linux Mint 9, newer versions have some crazy issues going on, touchpad irratic movement, r8169 gigabit card not connecting.

    Just to help anyone with this laptop.

    See attached the fixed dsdt.hex, you will need to recompile the kernel and add the dsdt.hex - this so you dont need the acpi_osi option.

    Stick with 10.04 for stability, here is a few tips to get everything working sweet.

    Grub

    acpi_osi="!Windows\2006" - this fixes the brightness control issue

    Wireless card is Broadcom 4727 using the linux sta driver, should show in the hardware drivers app.

    Lan driver can be fixed by downloading Realtek latest driver for R8168
    Blacklist the r8169, install r8168 then add module name to /etc/initramfs/modules then run update-initramfs this forces it to load this driver.

    The supplied DVD writer has a slight quirk that needs addressing with a line added to the grub (slow identification of media and slow media reading)

    I have an Acer Aspire One D255, everything works perfectly except for the ENE SD card slot and the internal microphone. Other than that it's running like a dream!

    MSI A6200-461us has a Core i3-370 with onboard graphics. Runs 10.10 great, also running Arch with no issues.

    Works perfectly as it should, no additional drivers needed.

    Works great, but with regards to drivers depending on your video card (especially if it is a very good one), you need to install an additional driver for that, or else, you'll get a bad graphics.

    * One minor bug (screen brightness adjustment) fixed with the following code:

    sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

    Change the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" into GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi_osi=Linux"

    sudo update-grub

    Restart your linux
    Giddyup!!
