    ok, dug a little deeper and found 2 settings for wifi in the bios. 1 to show that the card exists and the 2nd to activate the transceiver part. the transceiver was turned off on mine. turned it back on and we were good.

    next "problem", I can't figure out how to get the screen to rotate. I tried the steps from here on how to do it, but it isn't working as far as I can tell.

    I did post an updated rotate script for maverick: http://linuxdeal.com/how-to-ubuntu-10.10-hp-tc1100

    BTW If anyone wants to help me out you can submit your linux printer review. (Please please please!!) I want to make an all-Linux-compatible printer store.

    actually I was trying to use the tablet rotate button on the face, not the physical button on the side. that was what I did wrong

    I'm not much help on the linux printer deal as I use HP printers exclusively through IP so not a good test.

I'm asking because I'm keeping the TC1100 with Windows installed on it, but I'm putting Ubuntu 9.10 Netbook on the TC1000, and if the WPA works with the different model wireless card that's in the TC1100, I'll order one for the TC1000. (Confusing enough?)

    Edit: Guess I could just USB boot the TC1100 and see if the WPA works. Answers are still very welcome, though.
    Wireless works fine with WPA/WPA2 on 10.10 and 11.04 (beta 2) on my TC1100.

    Hi Graham,

    Were you able to get Unity working with your TC1100? Is there a trick? I saw a window on first boot that claimed that video hardware was insufficient to run it, so it started up in classic mode. I can't get Compiz to start anymore and the upgrade removed Avant Window Manager. Also discovered there's a known bug with bluetooth not working correctly in 11.04. If you have any pointers on getting Unity going, I'd like to give it a try.

    Thanks,
    R

    Hi Randy

    Unfortunately, not Unity 3D (TC1100's use openGL 1.2 and not the required 1.4). However, Unity 2D is working fine (as it did in 10.10 also) having added the PPA manually. I haven't noticed any problems with Unity 2D yet but I guess it's still early days. Thanks for the info about bluetooth, I have tried this yet.

    If your interested in Gnome 3, I've tried both openSUSE and Fedora live CD's on the TC1100's but had problems with both. openSUSE's display and graphics were messed up and Fedora wouldn't load to the desktop.

    I guess the TC1100's are showing there age (graphically) now.

    Running this might give you some more information.

    From this document

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Demystifying...reRequirements

    The Open GL version needs to be 1.4 or higher and the proprietary nvidia drivers are recommended for you.

    What drivers do you recommend?
    AMD GPUs:

    Fglrx driver: We have had some issues with the fglrx driver but we have been able to resolve them. With the fglrx driver, you will be missing features such as Kernel Mode Setting (KMS).
    Open Source Radeon driver: can exhibit rendering artifacts on some systems. In the "System 3" configuration, Unity is not usable due to serious rendering issues.
    NVidia GPUs: Nvidia propietary drivers.
    Intel GPUs: Intel open source drivers.
