    Keyboard backlighting - when pressing Fn + F7, dmesg shows this:

    atkbd serio0: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0x97 on isa0060/serio0).
    atkbd serio0: Use 'setkeycodes e017 <keycode>' to make it known.




    When pressing Fn + F8, dmesg shows this:

    atkbd serio0: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0x96 on isa0060/serio0).
    atkbd serio0: Use 'setkeycodes e016 <keycode>' to make it known.


    Unfortunately, don't really know what it means, anyone has a clue (userspace is not aware of these keypresses, but what to do with it)?

    After 11.10 migration the cooling fan is always at max speed after around 10min.

    sensors command show something like this :
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1: +76.0°C (crit = +100.0°C)
    temp2: +29.8°C (crit = +100.0°C)

    temp1 is wrong ... it seems to be hard drive temp.
    Did you also have same fan problem ?

    I use the samsung-tools with "samsung-tools -c silent" command to reduce noise but it isn't a solution ...

    FIX FOR THE ANNOYING TOUCHPAD!

    echo "options psmouse proto=exps" >/etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf


    This makes the touchpad recognize right click, left click/grab+scroll etc.

    Reboot, done!


    You can also test without rebooting with:

    1) launch gnome-terminal
    2) as root, start:

    rmmod psmouse
    modprobe psmouse proto=exps



    To enable middle click, do:

    apt-get install gpointing-devce-settings


    Run it (
    gpointing-devce-settings), and enable middle click emulation. Unfortunately the change is lost across reboots and suspend, and I don't know how to make it permanent.



    There is still one issue with the touchpad: mouse is annoyingly slow, even if we set it to the highest speed in System Settings -> Mouse!

    As a workaround, you can add to "Startup Applications" this command (unfortunately, after suspend, the change is lost and the mouse is slow again):

    xset m 6 1

    Test with different values to find the one you like.


    If anyone finds a solution to slow mouse and middle click emulation to be permanent across suspends - would be great.

    Here is a possible solution to the fan problem: Just use Ubuntu 2D on log-in (not Ubuntu, which is Unity 3D). It worked well for me with my Dell XPS - it exhibited the same problem with 3D.

    If/when you try it, can you pls post the result here - I'm planning to buy the same Samsung model.

    Also, have you installed Ubuntu 11 directly or Ubuntu 10 first as per Post 1?

    Running Unity 2D seem to have a slight positive effect, although maybe I just didn't run it long enough. The fan works a bit noisy when the power plug is connected (or, when doing some intensive CPU work...).


    Running powertop and enabling some power-saving features is also some way to go, so is samsung-tools and disabling some hardware.

    I've installed Ubuntu 11.10 directly.


    By the way - how long does the battery last in your Samsung series 9 laptops running Ubuntu?

    Re: Samsung series 9

    I was with 11.4 upgraded to 11.10, I decided to reinstall 11.10 from scratch and it's better but not perfect. Fan speed is accurate when temperature seems to be "normal" but if fan speed ran the max it never go back to normal, then I use samsung-tools to reset speed.

    Battery life is very poor ... around 4 hours with no bluetooth and no wifi ... but I don't want to reinstall windows ................. just hope this hardware get better support.
