    Try booting to the cd to see how it runs before installing anything

    Maker: Lenovo

    Model: B575

    Distro: Xubuntu amd64 11.10 alpha 3

    Realtek 8168 fix.

    Other than that everything works.

    It has been three weeks now: I get ~4 hours 35 minutes average on battery.

    1. Ubuntu 11.04
    2. Samsung
    3. RF511 (SNB i7, Intel + Nvidia (Optimus))

    Allmost everything works with few exceptions:

    • Touchpad: it's detected as 'PS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse', not touchpad device - works just like normal mouse, but I can't configure touchpad extras like two-finger scrolling and such.
    • Also when I enable Nv prop driver after reboot the system switches to fallback session (bumblebee probably handle it (Intel + Nv prop. driver) properly).
    • Last thing (minor): rf-switch and some multimedia keys don't work.

    Everything else (wifi, eth, Intel driver) work just like a charm.

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    1)Version Of Ubuntu: Xubuntu 11.04
    2)Laptop Maker: Toshiba
    3)Laptop Model: NB205

    I recently decided to try another operating system after Windows XP really didn't do the trick for me anymore. I toyed with a few different Ubuntu versions (Ubuntu 10.04, Kubuntu 10.04 and 11.04, Xubuntu 10.04 and 11.04) and finally decided to go for Xubuntu 11.04.

    I installed it with the wubi app inside Windows and now get to chose which system to load during boot-up (even though I almost never boot into Windows actually).

    As I am new to Linux and have very little knowledge of the subject, I need a system that works 'out of the box'. Xubuntu 11.04 totally does that, I didn't have to do anything manually, wifi, sound, etc all worked without the need for additional configuration. It's also considerably faster on my NB205 than Ubuntu 10.04 was.

    The only thing I am missing is a power policy feature that would allow me to save some more battery power. With the right policy setting in Windows XP I got close to nine hours out of it, with Xubuntu 11.04 it's more like six. I think I saw a feature like this on Kubuntu 10.04 but couldn't find an equivalent in Xubuntu 11.04. Any hints would be appreciated.

    Overall, this is a very fine operating system which gives me the stability and reliability I need and it works well with the NB205. The developers deserve commendation for their efforts!

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Which *buntu and version did you try to install?

    I realized that older versions sometimes work better, e.g. Kubuntu 10.10 worked well whereas Kubuntu 11.04 did not work at all on my laptop. However, Xubuntu 11.04 also worked very well - but not Ubuntu 11.04.

    I have an ACER Travelmate Timeline X 8172Z. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.
    After solving my WLAN issue, everything is working like perfectly fine.

    Hardware Acceleration with VLC is not working properly. I'm now using mplayer with VA-API support for HD video content.
