    Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    I've installed new Ubuntu 13.04, but the fn keys for brightness doesn't work, and the brightness is always at the min. Any help?

    It was reported as a regression and there is a temporary fix offered:

    Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    Hey, folks. I got one of these laptops then put Fedora on it. I'm currently fiddling with the cursor speed problem - someone back on page 25 noted the same thing, the cursor speed seems very slow, it takes multiple scrubs of the touchpad to get across the screen.

    Are other Ubuntu users also seeing this? Does it differ between Ubuntu releases / PPAs / etc?

    I'd be interested in seeing the output of this command:

    xinput list-props "CyPS/2 Cypress Trackpad"

    from Ubuntu systems, if anyone feels like obliging thanks!

    Has someone succeeded using the touch-pad to copy & paste?

    Thanks

    Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    Any fixes for Dell XPS 13 running Ubuntu 13.04 + 3.10 kernel backlight keys not working? My backlight is stuck at 100% and can not be adjusted via the Fn keys. I've Googled and tried a handful of posted fixes, but to no avail.

    Thanks! Sorry to be so late replying, I got distracted by other work. Does the touchpad on that system seem to be very slow, as others have mentioned, or does it feel OK to you?

    Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    I just picked one of these up, and as of 13.04, I am simply amazed by the feature-completeness. It works perfectly, and in some cases (as with the fan and sleep/resume), Ubuntu outperforms Windows by a wide margin.

    Battery life is also excellent. I don't have much to add, but I wanted to make it clear that THIS is the notebook to have if you are after a Ubuntu-based MacBook Air of sorts.

    Do you buy the editor version or the normal one and install 13.04 yourself? Do you dual boot with win8 or just 13.04? Thanks!

    Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    I've just ordered an xps13, will received it next week. It only has 128gb sdd. Not sure if I should keep win8 along with Ubuntu13.04 or just erase win8 (if so, I may not get supported from Dell customer service if anything happens). Any advice? Thanks.
