The previous kernel was 3.5.0-18.
I've just installed the latest quantal kernel v. 3.7.0-5.13 (just the kernel packages) from xorg-edgers, and now also the brightness keys (fn+f5 and fn+f6) work as expected.
I just picked up the ux31a a few days ago. I plan to wipe the drive and install Ubuntu, but was wondering what is everyone's plan for getting windows back on to the machine.
Say 3 years down the line I want to sell it. I need to reinstall windows 8, has anyone managed to get their windows key from Asus?
Mine just came with a windows 8 sticker on the bottom and no key. It activated without needed it, so assuming its entered at the factory.
i have a new UX31a
since i dont like windows, I compleately removed all the windows partitions and installed 12.04 64bit from a live usb stick (after disabling secure boot in the bios (version 215)).
I successfully installed ubuntu, four partitions (/home, /, swap and /boot), boot loader on /dev/sda
after reboot the laptop jumps into the bios and I dont have the harddrive as an option to boot. actually there are no options to boot...
I booted from the USB stick again into the LIVE system and tried to repair grub, reboot, no success

Hi Everyone. I have the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-AB71, and I have gotten everything to work with Linux Mint 14 except for the brightness keys. I have kernel 3.7.0-7-generic which was installed from the xorg bleeding edge repository.
The brightness keys actually work, somewhat. The problem is that I can adjust the brightness down only one "notch" so to speak, or back up to the maximum. I presume there is some gnome setting I need to tweak? By the way, I'm using the Cinnamon desktop environment, which is based off of gnome 3. I decided to ask here because this seemed to be the most active group regarding the Zenbook Prime. Does anyone have any ideas?
Oh and also, if anyone else is wondering, installing this kernel solved any and all Wifi issues I was having with dropped packets/slow speeds, etc. No need to disable draft-n mode as the community page suggests...
