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