    See post #186 (4 posts above yours)

    Hoping everything works with the refreshed xps 13 shipping October 26th. As well because I can't stand windows 8 ............

    Today I upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10. My only problem was the system update messing with my fonts settings (which was relatively easy to solve with some 5/10 minutes of tinkering around).

    Kamals PPA also supports the 12.10.

    Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    My wireless is acting very weird. When I'm at home, my computer is always connected to my router. It's fast, and works fine. However, when I am at school, or far away from my router at home, the internet works for only a short amount of time. Then, it disconnects. I have to delete the connection, and restart the computer to get the connection back. Very frustrating. Any ideas?

    I haven't had any issues with wifi, but you could try either connecting your computer to AC, or turn off wifi power saving like so:
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off
    If the behaviour changes as a result, that might indicate something :)

    I had the same issue.
    I followed the instructions there:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2012228
    namely:

    Code:
    echo "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
    sudo modprobe -rfv iwlwifi
    sudo modprobe -v iwlwifi
    The idea is to disable the "n" protocol ( = very high speed )
    So, yes, you don't get top speed (max is now 54Mb/s)
    but it seems much more stable

    hope this helps

    Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    So I have just received my xps 13, and I'm going to have a few questions.

    So far it works pretty well.

    First question: is there a way to get the "middle button" from the touchpad ?

    I'm replying to myself: in the kubuntu system settings, I can choose
    to emulate middle button with 3-finger tap (this works well) or
    with a corner tap (this does not work all the time)

    Ok, next step: I am upgrading to 12.10... fingers crossed!

    Unhappy Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    I'm on 12.10 since a while, and I just experiencing a couple of annoying issues.

    First one: disk is checked at every boot. Looks like shutdown is not so clean (at least, I found a bug on launchpad mentioning it) and so the disk is not unmounted properly.

    Second (and more annoying) one: sometimes lightdm crashes on start. So, I have to go in tty1, login and make it start by hand (sudo start lightdm).

    Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    Hi everybody,
    I have just bought a brand new Dell Xps 13. I made a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.10 and added the sputnik ppa.
    Everything works very well (trackpad, wifi,..) the only problem I have is that I can't change the brightness.
    It seems that the brightness is fixed when I switch on the computer (low brigthness if using battery, high brigthness otherwise) and I can't change it inside Ubuntu. Has someone any idea how I could solve this?

    Thank you very much
    Alessandro
