    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    HP Pavilion DV6 3131SA (purchased today from John Lewis) - Ubuntu 10.10

    Everything seems to work just fine.
    Sound, headphones, mic, webcam, bluetooth, card reader and keys for brightness and volume all working out of the box.

    However, wireless requires the installation of the Broadcom STA proprietary driver and the graphics card requires the ATI/AMD FGLRX driver.
    Also, after applying all available updates, the touchpad (called a ClickPad) stopped working properly. A workaround for this issue can be found here. No multitouch, but at least the right click works after applying this patch.

    I can't comment on battery life yet, but will edit this post when I can.

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook (ubuntu-10.10-netbook-i386)
    Toshiba
    NB505-N508 2G memory

    No issues using the following:

    I am sure that there are many ways to install and configure Ubuntu. This is how I, with very little experience using Ubuntu configured my Netbook…

    Installing the Realtek Wi-Fi drivers:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lexical/hwe-wireless
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install rtl8192ce-dkms

    Installing Google Talk:
    Downloaded the application through my Gmail account by clicking on the “Install voice and video chat” link and installed with Ubuntu Software Center. Using Gmail in Firefox I was able to connect to a Windows XP work station using Gmail video chat with no issues.

    Installing Skype:
    Click, click with Ubuntu Software Center. I was able to connect to Skype users with no issues.

    Installing Google Earth:
    sudo apt-get install lsb-core (lsb-core package must be installed)
    sudo apt-get install gdebi-core (this is how I chose to install the .deb package)

    sudo apt-get install googleearth-package
    sudo make-googleearth-package --force
    sudo gdebi <package name>.deb

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Kubuntu 10.10 64bit
    Lenovo Ideapad y560p model 4397.

    Everything works perfectly, even suspend to ram/resume from ram.

    I had a bit of an issue installing (the keyboard was not being recognized at all) but everything worked fine upon retry.

    EDIT: Microphone not working by default. It's apparently a known issue with Realtek / Intel HDA sound cards. This one has the Realtek ALC272. Also, the speaker volume is very low. Not sure if that's related to the microphone issue. It doesn't seem to be much louder in Win7.
