    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    After several issues (very odds, some of them regarding Unity and the dissapear of booth toolbars), I got my Toshiba Satellite A505-S6005 up & running with Ubuntu & Kubuntu 11.10

    No mayor flicks over here.

    I am using Ubuntu 11.04 and have used from 9.04
    on Toshiba Satellite m305-s4848

    All I did was the default setup. it did everything for me.

    Equium P200-1ED

    Worked straight off the CD.
    Wireless and sound support straight off.
    Graphics Driver "Unknown" (will probably look in to that)
    Experience "Standard"

    Looks good and plays good

    1) Version of Ubuntu: 11.10
    2) Laptop maker: IBM
    3) Laptop model: lenovo X61s

    Unlike Debian GNU/Linux, Ubuntu accesses all the WiFi networks so that
    my laptop is connected to the internet. Hurrah!

    So far everything is working very well. Wireless worked out of the box, as did the brightness and volume shortcut keys. Multiple monitors worked better than expected. Sleep and Hibernation worked as well. Two finger scrolling works. I have not found anything that is not working on this model.

    So I posted about the same netbook about a week or so ago. I was having to many problems with the networking in both 11.04 and 11.10 as far as picking up a wired connection when it was plugged in which is a real pain as far as my job goes.
    On installing 10.10 it runs faster and I dont have a problem with the wired or wireless connection anymore.
    I did have to install the wireless driver through additional drivers with all 3 versions

    Reformatted hard drive, installed right from the cd, with in minutes everything seems to work great, didn't have to update any drivers and I have sound, good graphics, mouse and I was able to hook to the Internet via Ethernet and wireless router, and no problems what so ever.

    The only thing that hasn't worked so far was a couple of the function keys, ( up and down volume, mute) but thats it so far.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Ubuntu Version: Ubuntu 11.10
    Laptop Maker: Dell
    Model: Inspiron 910 (Mini 9)

    Install from USB went very smoothly. Post-installation, I had two issues to contend with:

    1) Wireless Card

    I had issues connecting to my WEP-encrypted wireless network. I switched the wireless card driver from Broadcom-STA to b43, as per instructions found here:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...Driver/bcm43xx

    The connection still kicks out occasionally, which is annoying. But it now works about 95% of the time rather than the 0% it worked before, so I'm happy with that.

    2) Battery/Power Management

    On disconnecting the power cord, the system would sometimes incorrectly report that the battery was dangerously low and suspend.

    I fixed it by following the instructions found here (near the end of the thread):

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1866533

    Aside from the occasional minor wireless hiccup, everything runs smoothly now.
