I recently purchased a ASUS N53 laptop from newegg: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16834220996
These are a few of the issues, and solutions ive found to some of the problems ive had.
Both would hang as they try to shut down due to a driver issue with the USB3 Port, Solution here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...98&postcount=7
Another solution posed below:
Add the following to your grub boot parameters:
Optimus/video card switching: (You can now use your Nvidia card )
use this project:
to use, type the following into terminal:
Keyboard Shortcuts(some working):
rm -r bumblebee
git clone https://github.com/MrMEEE/bumblebee
sudo sh bumblebee-uninstall
sudo sh install.sh
Most function("fn") keys work exept for the volume up/down/mute and the media keys, screen brightness and projector switching key work, as well as the LCD switch.
Most of the fn keys do not return keycodes, as well as the media keys.
When you use the gnome applet for setting your core speed you may think your not getting turbo frequencies, but you are. See :http://ubuntu.shapado.com/questions/...-intel-core-i7
Know any gnome applets the properly display/edit this information?
HDMI Support(Minor issue)
Little problem with HDMI support, if you try to turn on the computer with the HDMI cable plugged into the computer, ubuntu will never boot, it hangs just after grub. But if you unplug it for grub, press enter, then plug back in it all works fine.
