MB: ASUS M3N78 PRO GeForce 8300
RAM: 8GB (4x2GB) Corsair XMS2 PC8500 DDR2 1066MHz
CPU: AMD Phenom X4 9500 Socket AM2
HDD: 2 x 1TB Hitachi SATA 7200/16MB/SATA-3G
OS: Ubuntu Server x64 9.04

Vanilla install with RAID1, 9.04 (Jackalope) found the RAID set easily, LVM set up with ext4 LVs without a hitch.

ASUS provides no support for the RAID drivers and until this release I could not use Ubuntu on this hardware - Great job!

btw - thing thing is FAST for an $800 'server'!

Ubuntu 9.04 64 bit
Lenovo U330 IdeaPad notebook

9.04-64 bit ... doesn't recognize the Ricoh multi-memory-card reader ... at least using an Olympus 16 Meg xD memory card.

Using the drivers at :

I have tried installed the HL-5370DW on EVERY combination of these Version/Interfaces

Ubuntu :
Hardy x86
Intrepid x86
Jaunty x86 server
Jaunty amd64

Interface :

And it works perfectly except that duplex printing logic is inversed (i.e. if you ask for long side, you get short side, if you ask for short side, you get long side...)

Even if it's quite easy to just inverse you choises, beware that if you're going to pool the printer with others that get the choice right, it might become a problem.

You can get it to work with a little patience and by adjusting the options in the Sound Preferences and the Preferences in the Volume Control.)

Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope x84

Acer Aspire T650

Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 3Ghz
Ati Radeon Xpress 200 Chipset
Hitachi Deskstar 7k2 SATAII
Samsung Spinpoint 7k2 SATAII
Raeltek HD Audio
Generic (I presume) 7in1 Card reader
Standard v.92 internal modem
DVD-/+RW Multidrive
DVD-ROM drive

Cheap Bluetooth dongle
Netopia Network Router
Trust 120 Spacecam
iPod Nano 4th Gen
Various digital cameras
Generic Microphone
Sony Walkman
Sony Ericsson K800i phone

All works perfectly out of the box with 9.04. Sorry if mentioning generic hardware is pointless. Working with the router to see windows workgroups properly only required installing Samba as per usual.

However, burning, or writing to discs on either drives puts alot of strain on the CPU. It didn't in Hardy. So far thats my only issue with Jaunty. Not sure what causes that, or how it can be fixed. Could simply be that my CPU isnt powerful enough, now that Ubuntu has progressed 2 releases

I bought an Asus eeepc 901 from newegg in about February. Originally it came with windows xp but installed ubuntu no problem. Everything worked out of the box except for some reason after the installation my bluetooth was turned off in the bios. Was an easy fix and I would recommend this netbook to anyone.

Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000BASE-T NIC
16x DVD Writer/48x CD-ROM Writer
Sun type 7 keyboard
SunL7ZF 17" LCD screen

Virtually everything worked "out of the box".
The keyboard was not detected properly so some superfluous keys such as "find", "again" etc don't work.
The NVIDIA graphics drivers had to be loaded via System > Administration > Hardware Drivers.
Other than that everything was properly detected.
It was a clean install and the machine runs beautifully :D

Laptop hardware incompatibility:

I can't seem to get the proper screen resolution. Some menus are hard to use/see because they are bigger than the screen.

My laptop is an HP pavilion dv 2000, not sure if it's the graphics card:

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7150M

or the display:

14.1" WXGA High-Definition BrightView Widescreen Display (1280 x 800)

that is causing the problem.

When I open the 'display preferences' menu, it says the monitor is not recognized.
I've already installed the most recent driver for the graphics card.

Help please?? It's annoying!

1) Kubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty)

HP Pavillion 753n
Intel Pentium 4A, 2533 MHz (4.75 x 533) Processor
1024 MB (DDR SDRAM) Memory
500GB IDE Disk Drive HDD
NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 (256 MB) GPU
Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC ( Ethernet
PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-105 (DVD:4x/2x/12x, CD:16x/8x/32x DVD-RW) Primary DVD-RW Drive
GVision L7EH (131331301963) Monitor
FIC VC19 (6 PCI, 1 AGP, 3 DIMM, Audio, LAN) Motherboard

I am using a HP Pavillion 753n. I transplanted the motherboard from the original case into an Antec Three Hundred case, and the front-mounted USB ports and everything work fine.

Other than that, using a Logitech Wireless USB Mouse, standard PS/2 keyboard (with multimedia buttons, but I haven't tried using ndiswrapper to make that work since I only recently found the XP driver for it).

I have a HP Photosmart C4480 Printer but I haven't used it quite yet, haven't had to print anything in Kubuntu yet.

No special configuration settings, am plugged in hard-wire to ethernet so I haven't had to setup wireless internet yet, although I do have a D-Link DWL-132 wireless adapter that works fine.

Everything else worked fine, didn't need to install any special driver for the graphics card, as the default one works fine.

The only thing that did not work correctly was the LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-451S (DVD+RW:4x/4x, DVD-RW:4x/2x, DVD-ROM:12x, CD-RW:40x/24x/40x . Will post details in the "hardware incompatibility list".

Asus P5B-VM, Nvidia 8600GT, Hauppague Nova-T-500, Leadtek usb dongle

8.04 & 8.10 intrepid

no issues with live CDs - install was flawless

mainboard functions 100% - was using both IDE & Sata, and onboard lan, onboard video was fine, but i needed DVI & so used nvidia 8600GT (gigabyte), only mainboard issue was that i couldn't get onboard nic to work with WOL. I used latest v4l drivers for Nova-t-500 & leadtek dongle, and all functions worked correctly. SPDIF also worked off the mainboard headers with newer alsa versions - ac3 pass thru worked on mythtv, mplayer etc

Dell Optiplex GX240 with Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron installed on a dual-boot system

1.7 GHz Pentium 4 Processor
384 MB RAM (one 256 stick and one 128 stick) with 133 MHz FSB
Two hard drives, a 40 GB with Ubuntu and a 20 GB with Windows 2000
NVIDIA 3DForce FX-5200 128 MB video card (works with both Ubuntu's open source drivers and the proprietary drivers)
Dynex DX-SC51 sound card (mobo sound card had to be deactivated for this to work in Ubuntu)

Ubuntu runs pretty well, although not as fast as Windows 2000. RAM usually sits around 170 MB when idle and it's never peaked 300 MB (however, at it's peak, the swap has gotten up to 250 MB). The processor runs at it's peak when using YouTube and can't seem to handle playing Pandora in the background while doing anything mildly resource intensive. Sound is good quality and the video card/CPU can handle the cube desktop along with most other advanced settings (however, it can crash if too much is going on at the same time). Boot up time is pretty quick but it takes a while to load up GNOME (usually 1.5 to 4 minutes).

2)Type Of Hardware
USB Headset w/ microphone

3)Hardware Maker

4)Hardware Model

Ubuntu, all variants and releases, cannot utilize drivers for PCI video cards. There is no troubleshooting for this anywhere. So as usual, I have to keep windows XP.

Tmobile HUWAI E220 wireless broadband stick worked straight out of the box on my Ubuntu 9.04 powered acer travelmate 201dx (10 years old, surprised it still does anything!). I do however have a "spare" HDD with XP on it so I tried out the stick on that first and used the setup info to facilitate installation on Ubuntu. Must get a drive enclosure for the spare!

HP NX-6320 laptop
1.66 core 2 duo
945 graphics chip on Mboard.
2 x 1GB 667ddr2 SDRAM
320 gb HDD
SIL 32 RAID PCI-e card used for ESATA.

super O/S 9.04 running for approx 2 weeks flawlessly.
Prior version was super o/s 8.10 (not so good with motherboard).

* Runs instantly + Flawlessly on live USB, + over previous Super_OS.
* All buttons work (volume, wireless etc). - unlike prior version.
* Keeps cool + can hibernate. - unlike last time.

* Battery life's a little better than vista, but not as much as i expected (little effect from dimming screen, scaling down cpu, changing display resolution etc).
* Any Load seems to hardly affect the RAM usage (flat at approx 300MB), instead hitting the CPU.
* The 2 CPU cores appear to be a little less synchronised (lag of approx 1.5 seconds between them).

* Disable 'native' SATA mode in bios first.
* Transferring between laptop and TB drive (NTFS formats) not as good as vista (CPU + speed).


THE LIVE USB RUNS VERY VERY NICELY - will do a fresh install instead of putting it on top of version 8.10 partition.

re ASUS M3N78-EM
with ubuntu 9.04

what does not work
1. desktop effects
2. card reader or digital camera via usb
One can easiy be turned off but the camera problem is a nuisance.
Does anyone have the answer.
A vista disk is on the desk and I want it to stay there!!!
Please help if you can. hope the download for the problem comes soon.

HP DV6934ca laptop
2.0 ghz core 2 duo
Intel onboard graphics (can't recall).
3 gigs ram
320 gb HDD

Current Version:
-9.04 but about to test 9.10 (mint, kubuntu, sabayon, and opensuse all work as well...with their own respective problems)

Works well:
-the HP quicklaunch buttons work Perfectly in ubuntu...no other distro worked out of the box like this!
-sound works fine as well...even on Youtube (which I've had problems with in every other distro I've tried)
-runs incredibly fast! (ext 4)

Not so good:
-Online videos skip around which is most likely due to the intel graphics...to be fixed in 9.10 I hear. Videos I actually have on my computer run perfectly, however (flash issue I believe)

Overall...it's about a Billion times better than Vista!...Just bought a brand new quad-core desktop and right off the bat Vista has frozen almost 10 times in less than a week!! I've never had any problems with freezing or anything related on Ubuntu or Kubuntu.

IBM Thinkpad 770Z, upgraded to 324MB Ram, 40GB HDD, Internal CD-rom drive, Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop.

Sound works now after using these guides:

http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Script_for_configuring_the_CS4239_sound_chip_in_Pn P_mode

an installing modconf by synaptic's package manager

Then run modconf from command line adding support for cs4236 and cs46xx which apperrently is blacklisted from start(not mentioned anywhere in ubuntu doc), then find ALSA blacklist conf and remove cs4236 and cs46xx from the list. If still not working then reinstall all to do with ALSA.

Video in 1024x768 works after adding the following to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, otherwise video only works in 800x600:

# xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using

To make it work:

ubuntu 9.10 karmic [testing]
acer aspire 4520
notes: everything seemed to work out of the box with the exception of having to install a driver for my nVidia GEforce graphics card.
kodak easyshare 5300 printer does not work with my computer but i think that falls on kodak because they don't supply ANY drivers for unix/linux.

CPU: AMD X4 II Phenom 955 Black Edition
MoBo: Biostart TA900GX A3+
Video Card: Evga GTS 250
RAM: 8GB OCZ DDR3 memory

Upon first boot it seemed fine. After a while the xorg.conf file got a bit jumbled with the new hardware and the nvidia settings. Had to wipe it out, copy an older one into it, do a dpkg-reconfigure and reinstall nvidia settings. Other than that, this setup rolls.

August 22nd, 2009, 09:43 PM
A couple different video cards tested in Ubuntu by me.

Video card compatability - Ubuntu driver compatability status

Video card - ATi Radeon X1950XT

Ubuntu Version ----- Result

Ubuntu 8.XX --------- Pass, drivers available
Ubuntu 9.XX --------- Fail, (card no longer supported by ATi - AMD)

Video card - NVIDIA GeForce2 MX200

Ubuntu 8.XX --------- Pass, drivers available
Ubuntu 9.04 --------- Pass, drivers available
Ubuntu 9.10 --------- Fail, 3D does not work when enabled; screen has messed up colors after reboot. Driver problem standard 96.XX driver.

I will test and post results for more video cards in the near future when I have more time.

Edit 1 : Fixed formatting of text.
Edit 2 : New data about the GeForce2 MX200 compatability. I will retry and post as soon as I retest it with the new driver release from NVIDIA.

Just works. I just replaced the motherboard, switched on, and everything was working (previously i had an ASUS M2V-TVM mobo). I had the proprietary drivers installed for my nvidia GS 7600 PciEx vid card.

I tried it with karmic alpha4 livecd (usb) and it seems the nv driver does not recognise the 8200 IGP - i installed the proprietary drivers in livecd mode and that way it had it working.

Hey guys, I am new to the linux world and i play i using the ubuntu 9.04 i have a dell gx280 does anyone know if all of ubunto 9 will work on my machine?? Also is there a list on what ubuntu 9.04 support's, like the newest hardware and all?

please email with info @ Fulbldital@hotmail.com (Fulbldital@hotmail.com)


September 11th, 2009, 09:44 PM
If you want to be sure of a printer installing OK, I think the only one you can be sure of is HP .
My HP L7580 installed without a hitch .Plus HPLIP Toolbox available
and have installed it. Makes using the printer very easy. Can check ink available , head info. etc.etc.
Lexmark seems to be bottom of the heap !

Did the bluetooth on your HP L7580 printer work as well?

September 17th, 2009, 09:38 PM

1)Version Of Ubuntu - ubuntu 9.04 x86_64
2)Type Of Hardware - laptop/notebook
3)Hardware Maker - ASUS
4)Hardware Model - x59gl

extra: works really good! only prob. so far is that there is no battery status when running on battery. make sure to install heath monitoring software and keep an eye on the stats.

September 19th, 2009, 03:26 AM
Does it work? It works.

Here's how I got the Hercules Dualpix HD Webcam (06f8:3003 Guillemot Corp.) webcam camera working in Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackelope.

When I plugged the camera in, lsusb showed it, but there was not a /dev/video0. To get this, I ran

sudo modprobe gspca_ov534Now CHEESE showed the camera, and it worked fine.

When I tried to use it in Skype, the video showed up green. This command fixed that.

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skypeI set the ALSA capture to the integrated microphone in gnome-sound-properties. Skype audio worked, but the integrated microphone was not working, even though it worked in other applications. The easy way to get this working was to kill pulseaudio (set its "autospawn = no" in /etc/pulse/client.conf).

pulseaudio -k

Hello Everybody,

Respected mods, Gald to be in Ubuntu forum, as of now i am new to Ubuntu. I am having a dual boot with Ubuntu 9.04 32 bit edition with XP. Always facinated about linux based systems and finally installed ubuntu 9.04 2 weeks back in my Laptop. I want to migrate to Ubuntu completely in a shortwhile.

This is my sytem : Intel Core 2 duo T5750(2Ghz), 1GB RAM, 160GB 5400rpm HD, 14.1in 1280x800 LCD, Intel X3100, CDRW/DVDRW, Broadcom 802.11bg wireless, Bluetooth, Modem, 10/100 Ethernet, Touchpad, Camera Built-in, 6c Li-Ion.

Is there any specific drivers for my hardware, if so where is it available?
Everything is working as of now still i have some worries on the performance of the hardware compared to xp. will i get same or more performance with Ubuntu? How it can be achieved?

As of now i have some issues with audio, sometimes it creates some annoying sound. I have an realtek HD hardware with dolby in the system. 256 inbuilt intel graphics.
Bluetooth is working - as in detecting other devices but not able to transfer data.
Anysoftware where in i can switch on the cam in yahoo or any messenger - (Mywebcam is working)

I also want to shift to 64bit edition since my system is 64 bit - Need advice on this too.

September 20th, 2009, 07:28 PM
Give detailed explanations when reporting compatible hardware.

Also Do not post any lspci outputs in this thread as they will be removed with out question.

Please Only List
1)Version Of Ubuntu: 9.04
2)Type Of Hardware: External Optical Drives on Acer Aspire One D150 Netbook
3)Hardware Maker: Acer
4)Hardware Model: Acer Aspire One D150-1165

Ubuntu 9.04 clean installed (replaced Windows XP Home as shipped); System: Intel Atom N270, 1.60GHz, 1 GB RAM, 10.1", 6-cell battery. BIOS name & version: InsydeH2O, v1.05.

Used Synaptic Package Manager and/or Update Manager to update Ubuntu security as well as a myriad of open source apps. D-Link 614+ Home wireless network worked right off the bat, automatically, as did all sound and multimedia (Except for Skype with built-in web cam - no video, no sound input recording, while Ekiga worked automatically! Will be working on this problem.)

External drives worked plug n play:
New Samsung 8x DVD+/-RW slim USB drive, as did an
older Samsung TS-H552 4x DVD+/-RW drive via a Cables-to-go USB 2.0 TO IDE or SATA Drive Adapter

HP Compaq Presario CQ60

Tested Versions:
Ubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10

Per version notes:

Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10
Nothing to note, everything works out of the box, wireless card is found and works accordingly. All hardware is recognised, as well as the touch pad. All that doesn't work is the button that enables you to turn off/on the touch pad and the wireless button as they only work with HP proprietary drivers for Vista (only).

Ubuntu 8.10
Same as above, except that wireless does not work.

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Works fine until I install any video drivers, which means that after booting I have only a black screen, not even the splash comes up.

October 5th, 2009, 07:19 PM
Even though I think this thread is crap (how the hell are we supposed to search it?!) I'll post some hardware compatibility info.

This is all based on Ubuntu 9.04:

Fujitsu Storagebird External Storage HDD 3.5" 400GB, USB connection - works fine.

Huawei E160X aka Vodafone K3565 GPRS/UMTS/HSDPA USB modem - works fine with Network Manager, but no access to SMS.

Everything pretty much works out of the box, except the webcam image is upside down. There is a fix for that somewhere in these forums.
edit: oh right, the ACPI calls seem to not be working perfectly, because the "restart" action does nothing. and you can only suspend the computer once per session.. after that, it just won't work.

Installed 9.10 in an old Gateway 400vtx Laptop 2.0gz mobile p4 1.25 gig ram intel 855 graphics boots and works great. Oddly way better than 9.04! It found all the hardware SD card slots and all the only thing I havn't tested is the modem (but who uses them any more) the only issue I have with this machine is it reboots instead of shutting down, but it does that with every linux build i've tryed in it!!

November 4th, 2009, 04:20 AM
Dug out my old CanonScan N650U scanner and hooked it up via usb and it worked first time,

Running 9.10 I had to do nothing special just worked, Did not even have to reboot !!

- issues with built-in microphone /needed pulseaudio to work and skype shouldn't control volumes/

- issue with built-in chicony UVC webcam /the video is upside-down, I tried everything (also like uvc patch or the libv4l thing), finally I post a reply in the appropriate thread to ask for help/

Ubuntu 9.10 on Lenovo x61 with 1 Gig RAM. New install and everything seems to work great. Not done with testing but main components such as video, sound, wireless and wired Network all works as it should. You can connect, disconnect multiple times from wireless Network and it works. Very simple to add new wireless networks. Very simple to adjust display settings.

So far a very good release. :-)

I'm new to Linux. Installed Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala on my laptop last week. Everything worked upon first boot, except for a few Fn+ key combos. Touchpad sensitivity needs some fiddling, but is mostly good.

I got some popping sounds when using headphones, but they're not there anymore, so I presume it was a glitch the the software updates patched up.

Overall, I'm having a very pleasant experience. Thank you, Ubuntu.

Sony Vaio VGN-SZ4VWN/X

using since 8.04
64 bit version of ubuntu

9.10 sorted out
1. no more issues with build in speakers, sometimes quite silent ticks are comming from built in speakers, but that is not a problem. Ubuntu thank you for fixing this ;o)
2. Memory stick duo slot is recognized and working now.

9.10 screwed up
1. hibernation/sleep -> nvidia module doesn't want to unload resulting in screen locking only
2. webcam. due to different timings in new kernel module doesn't load properly in boot time. Must be reloaded manually. Then it works fine in skype and other apps. There are issues with flash. Video is distorted and once camera deactivated, it is not possible to activate again, you need to reload module in kernel again.

Never worked
1. fingerprint reader. The only driver I found that supports same hardware on other laptops is not workign and not supporting Sony laptops ;o(
2. functional keys (brightness) are not working out of the box, but this can be mapped manually.
3. webcam not working out of the box, you need to build driver module yourself.

Over all good job guys...

These are the laptop computers I've tested :

Dell D630 and Dell D430 worked without problem on both 8.10x32 and 9.04x32

Fujitsu Siemens S6120 worked without problem on 9.04x32 but was very slow, with 9.10x32 it run very smooth and nice --> 9.10 must be less hardware demanding

Acer Aspire 4810TG runs perfect on 9.10x64 on Intel Graphics only. The built-in ATI HD4330 doesnt work with the proprietary driver offered in Ubuntu.

Printer : Epson dx4050 (dx4000 family)

Intro : My "baby" was getting sadder day by day with XP and got worse (a depression) with Windows 7 RC1. I am a "tuxer" since I first encounter MANDRAKE, a redhat distro, in some good old days. Tired of seeing my "baby" going some other way, where 60% of my processor power went to antivirus, antimalware, antispyware and so on, and to firewalls and as I was trying win7 facing the fact my "baby" was going to be a micro$oft zombie (sorry Balmer, no other way to call it !) I decided to go Ubuntu.

Installation: I first tried 9.04 x32 from a dvd and was pleased to see the installation process (I also tried Wubi) was fairly smooth. Then I when 9.10 x64 from a USB bootable (WOW !! nice feature !!).
When choosing a partition, the process was to not so fair. From what I read here most people have already or need to set a separate partition and most do not have it already so for me the options would be :
1- choose type of installation
a) "/", swap
b) "/", "/home", swap
c) "/boot", "/", "/home", swap
D) choose your own
2 - get the space for it
Notes: The color bar should be proportional.
The optional partition manager should be it as it depics the system in a more intelligigle way
3 - show what was chosen and ask al least 5 times if we are certain :)

Working : Everything is working ... and fast ... a "so fast" i was not use to.
The repositories and synaptic is a excelent idea for those who are "graphic" and for those like me that are attending the WA (Windows Anonimous) meetings. Joking !!! This software collections are marvelous and hassle free.

Disks and Partitions : I have already understanding of the mount command that I had to refresh because of the many, many options. In "Places", all my drives appeared but then when going "FSTAB" things started to get somewhat confusing because of label mixup (I gparted and changed some to fit some needs). "Places" went nuts (doubled up) and found "Mtab" to have some disconnected entries, deleted all /dev related and restarted. Because of user priviledges, then found that (root alters root entries and user do not have write access to some /etc) root@nautilus did not match user@nautilus. The mount options "default,user, users" solve some of the problems.
NTFs-3g if awsome and the configuration tool is a dream come true :) - If the hard drive is alright all goes well but if it's starting to fail be aware (not ntfs-3g fault of course) so monitor closely ntfs drives/partitions .

Setting a "/home" partition is also a good idea. In a different partition you can backup some of your system configuration files, data, vmware disks and so on.

Network : Easy to set in no time either using dhcp (default) from a router or modem or setting a static ip.
Internet is more secure than I ever had, firewall does not clog the system, can fully profit from having a broadband connection (thing I was not used to !!!)

Sound : Everything went fine after setting up the 5.1 speakers. (Note to self: need to understand the ALSA and the others) Play all formats without trouble and without background interference like a trully multitask system.

Graphics : After some missapps, (all my bad) and with Nvidia driver (keep up the good work !) my 2 screens are working flawlessly. Only be sure to restart as some settings need at least a session restart, and with the nvidia driver be sure when cool booting to have both monitor turned on.

Virtualbox : WOW ! I tried it in windows but did not harness the power that I get from it on ubuntu. And I have now the perfect windows (f*ck MS system restore!!) just install xp and your apps and tweaks then backup copy the vmware disk and you can system restore. It's not a game machine but you can not have it all. Now I can turn my partition XP professional into from game console (yes I can not stop playing games ... sorry!).
It's awsome to have ubuntu in one monitor and running a vboxed windows XP (windows 7 is lame and heavy!) for some apps that don't run in wine.

Security system (read/write access) : Way simpler and, at first glance, way secure than the windows system. I can easily access from ubuntu to one of my "tight secure" ntfs partition. From Windows to access ext4 partitions I will try Ltools. Also nice to see it that web apps also do not have full system access, it is the biggest problem in windows, being IE6 worsen by IE7, both having more access to the system than a user !!

Printers : This seems to (still!) be the Aquilles heel of Linux, mostly because lack of support from manufacters. I contacted Epson to ask for support for at least one of my Epson printers and all I got a negative response, which I strongly protest. So the way is to sell my Epson printers (and sotp buying consumables) and go Brother that has some support.
in the past, other printers made leave linux behind because of lack of support from OEM's, knowledge and time to learn, but now that is not the main attribut so...
Still In 9.10 it found a compatible printer driver that prints, yet the scanner lacks some of the features.

Graphics : Gimp is very powerful, and for movies there is almost everything (too a little pick at ubuntu studio).

Games : It seems some games are being ported to linux, so that's good news so i can leave the "old windows xp game console" (hey it's better the xbox and it does not melt after a year !)
And playing freeciv makes me return to the old days !
If nvidia is on board what is the problem (and delay ) for harnessing it's gpu power ?

Keyboard and Mouse : All good and compatible. USB works like a charm, plug and unplug mouse and USB keyboard with not trouble. I even can use my full keyboard again as my model is listed !

Burning : Burns cds and dvds like a bushfire, without clogging the system !

Conclusion :
I have 80% pc power to use again;
no crashes, freezzes or "the blues" (windows joke);
can use my whole memory (Me and my disks were seek of swapping !);
feel alot more secure in the internet (can even go to those "you have a virus sites");
Multitasking is real ... not an advertising catch phrase !

Upgrade to Karmic Koala went without a hitch, too.

Only [non]issue is that the proprietary drivers for the ATI graphics still will not load. Standard drivers work fine, though.

I am running Ubuntu 9.10 from a Compaq Presario C551NR Notebook. It has a standard DVD-ROM drive, with CD-R/RW capabilities. It also has a built in Broadcom wireless card, but the version number escapes me. To make the wireless work properly, you must start with Ubuntu 8.10. This version has the drivers for the wireless card in the system already, and has the immediate ability to enable them after installation. If you go to 9.10 forst thing, you will be able to get the wireless drivers by using the update function in System --> Admin. --> Update Manager. This gives you the drivers, but when you enable them and restart, you discover that the network applet doesn't have the ability to connecto to a wireless network. So if you plan on having the latest and greatest version, start with 8.10. PM for more details if you want. Also, if you are planning on connecting to an Airport Extreme or Express, make sure that you obtain the HEX equivalent of you password, no matter the encryption. Otherwise the password will not register. Again, PM me for details.

the touch buttons on the side don't work in ubuntu. ubuntu can tell when they are being used, but they are not used for the proper meanings they are given (play pause and stop do nothing, |<< and >>| scroll)

everything else works. the wireless, the touch pad, the keyboard. everything.

This is for anyone that needs a cheap printer set-up.
I have been successful with an Epson Colorstylus 740 in any

You just open CUPS and "add " printer,anl voila you can print. I wish
that It was that easy for Multifunctions to be enabled ,especially with
the scanner side of them.

Ubuntu 9.04
Toshiba Satellite 1085-S402
Nvidia GeForce2 video card

96.43.14 and 96.43.13 video drivers.

While Ubuntu recognizes the video card and installs the default drivers, it gives you the option to install the 96.43.13 video drivers. When installing these drivers, you may get the computer to reboot properly in some cases, however in a few cases the screen was displaying a bright bar at the bottom of the screen. These drivers could be harmful to the computer as well as the screen in their default configuration and shouldn't be installed.

I don't know if this is a good question for this forum/thread or it’d be better posted to Tom’s or Anandtech; please forgive me if this is this is in the wrong place.

For absurdly unimportant and irrelevant reasons, I need to build a small Ubuntu file/web server — and I’m about to order in a couple hours.

Requirements are absurdly small. There are only two or three of us in a home office (PCs and Macs), each working on simple documents and the occasional web page. Not a lot of traffic, and nothing more than file sharing and the occasional testing of a web page (all Internet-hosting is done off site; this machine won't ever go beyond the router). The rest of the network’s speed is Gigabit, so onboard LAN is important. I’ll be running it mostly headless, but onboard VGA will help setup and maintenance. I guess the only other thing to consider is that I’m going to be putting two 1.5 TB Seagate Barracuda drives in there in RAID 1.

I have one machine now that I put together, based on an Asus P5KPL-CM. But it took just a bit of hoop-jumping to get it right (among other things, LAN drivers didn’t work out of the box). I can go through a fit of driver installs again, but I’m wondering if there is a simple and tested workhorse combination out there to make this as easy as possible (Linux noob, if that’s not clear).

I need a inexpensive Video card to fit a Dell E510 with an PCI Express 16 v1.0 slot. I want to use it in 9.10 Ubuntu. My ATI X300 SE freezes and has artifacts in 9.10 but works great in 9.04. What do you suggest for general purposes, not games.

December 20th, 2009, 03:35 AM
I've been using the Powercolor video cards (air cooled, no fan).


It's PCIE 16 with 256 mb's of memory. It has all three connectors, D-sub, DVI and HDMI!

Runs cool, silent (no fan) and the graphics look good!

I've done some moderate gaming and it holds up, so it will certainly handle desktop tasks and watching videos.

I'm using it right now, Ubuntu 9.10.

Trust basic wireless keyboard and mouse, Model 16593. Not the best quality kit (no LED's, media buttons) but it's working fine. Had to enable USB Legacy in BIOS (using old k/b) for it to work at grub/boot. No issues with Legacy USB (YET!). I'm now single booting into Ubuntu 9.10 x64 so it's not really an issue for me if I have to disable it at some point.

System : Laptop Samsung R522
Ubuntu : 9.10 first 64 bits, finally downgraded to 32 bits

I will look to complete this post regularly when I have more experience with this PC.

Setup : with install CDROM, install quite straightforward, but I had to manually do the partition, the proposal was to remove completely the system. I wanted to keep a dual boot.

WLAN : could not get the Realtek 8192E integrated WIFI to work with 64bits. Issue seems to get a 64bits XP driver to use with ndiswrapper.
After full reinstall of the 32bits version, network works fine with ndiswrapper. (Also not out of the box...)

Touchpad works fine, including the scroll side.

Fn- keys :
Sound on/off and volume ok
Brightness : nok, will have to figure out how to set them up. (Added brightness applet to the Panel, it works fine: Did not have time to try to map to Fn Keys)
Screen on/off : nok
Battery status : nok
Euro : nok (anyway, I have no clue what this key should be good for as AltGr + E work fines for € symbol)
Touchpad on/off : ok
VerNum : ok
Wifi on off : nok - swithcing wifi on / off via software also have no impact on the wifi status led.
Energy / performance modus : nok

Video : ATI Radeon HD4650.
Working ok, I guess with the fglrx driver from ubuntu. But no 3D, fglrxgears does not run.
Cannot setup desktop effects, I guess this is also due to the fglrx driver.
The proprietary driver option was not proposed first, but after internet connection, I can select it.
fglrx then works, with 1922 fps. Desktop effects are also available.

I tryed quickly with Cheese and the webcam works fine out of the box. No futher testing with skype or any similar application.
Fine means as fine as on Windows, as I find that the framerate of the cam is quite low...

- Integrated card reader
- USB Memory stick
This works out of the box, but for some reason after a while running, newly plugged device will not be detected. It seems that if the computer stays on standby for a while, it will work again when coming back from idle. Strange.

Everything pretty much worked out of the box off a clean Live CD install, with the following exceptions. Multi-gesture touchpad; pinch to zoom, two finger scrolling does not appear to work. Side scrolling, tap to click all work, have not attempted to get pinch to zoom working. Disable touchpad while typing, although enabled in the touchpad preferences, does not appear to work correctly.

Wireless, using Atheros ath9k driver, while working was a bit flaky; poor signal strength, somewhat frequent disconnects/reconnects, having to resubmit WPA passkey, &c. Installing karmic back modules, as described elsewhere in these forums, corrected the issue. Signal strength now very good, no disconnects.

All Fn keys I have attempted to use work, including screen brightness, volume control, sleep, and mute. Suspend and resume on lid closing and opening works as intended.

I was pleasantly surprised with this purchase since I neglected to check out its compatibility beforehand. I am not the main user on this machine. So I don't have all the details.

Everything worked, but I haven't tried the HDMI output. There are only threes things that needed a little adjustment. The rest is straight out of the standard Karmic installation.

08:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
NetworkManager didn't like it at all. I switched to wicd, and it worked okay for a week, even though it was kind of slow for an undetermined reason. All of the sudden, it stopped working completely (suspending may be to blame). So I switched to MadWifi (v0.9.4), and it's been working perfectly.

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS780M/RS780MN [Radeon HD 3200 Graphics]
The default install was usable, but I wanted full 3D. Switching to the restricted ATI drivers under System -> Admin -> Hardware Drivers worked fine.

00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
Default installed worked fine, except the microphone stopped inputting after 10-20 seconds. I had to reboot to get it to work again. I did two things to fix this, and I am not sure if one would have done it without the other.

First I installed the linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.31-17-generic package
Second I commented out "options snd-hda-intel power_save=10 power_save_controller=N" in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

The configuration in my signature works. The only caveat is that I can't seem to get the onboard mic to work. The workaround I have for this is I use the C-Media usb:

Bus 005 Device 002: ID 0d8c:000c C-Media Electronics, Inc. Audio Adapter

Audio and mic works great :D

(1) Ubuntu Version: 9.10, Karmic
(2) Dell Dimension E521 (bought from Dell at the end of 2006)
(3) CPU: AMD 64 3200+ 1GMHz
(4) Display card: mother-board integrated nVidia GeForce 6150 LE
(5) Audio card: Sound Blaster Montogomery 3, also integrated
(6) Monitor: Dell E177FPc (17", with an analog interface only)
Works excellently after solving the display car driver problem (See below).

Linux distributions used in history on this PC:
1. Redflag Linux 5 & 6
2. Xubuntu 8.04, Xubuntu 8.10, Ubuntu 9.04
All worked fine.

Problem after installing Ubuntu 9.10: ”cannot display this video mode“ problem with Ubuntu 9.10
Problem Description:
After the basic installation and update (sudo apt-get update), from System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers, there are 3 versions of the proprietary display card drivers: 96, 173, 185, among which version 185 is labeled "[Recommended]". However, using this driver will cause the ”cannot display this video mode“ problem. (There is also another line of text below ”cannot display this video mode“: "optimum resolution 1280x1024 60Hz".)

Install version 96 of the display card driver. Both 173 and 185 will bring about the problem just above mentioned.
Use display card driver vesa to start X to modify X configuration with VI if the problem occurs.Only on X can I install version 76. Do not know how to install it under console. If you installed version driver version 173 or 185 and cannot start X, switch to the console mode (Ctrl + Alt + F1, or F2, or, ..., F6), edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf,

Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nvidia"

Comment out this line:
# Driver "nvidia"

Add a new line:
Driver "vesa"

(vesa is a pseudo-driver which makes it sure that X window starts correctly though the resolution is not high.)

Problem unsolved: A highly possible mother-board related defect with my PC
However, I'm sure my this PC has a mother-board related defect , which causes the system freeze once or twice a day, several days or one week. I've excluded the possible memory problem by replacing it with several other brand memory chips, but the problem remains all the way from Redflag Linux, Xubuntu and Ubuntu.

While not installed, 10.04 Lucid Lynx runs just fine from the LiveCD - there was no indications that anything would NOT work.
Laptop: Toshiba Satellite Pro L300-1CZ
CPU - Intel Core2 Duo T3200 2GHz

BIOS - inSyde H2O 1.50
Ethernet - Wired: Realtek 8101SE & Wireless: Realtek 8187B

What works: Everything.
Untested: Standby/Hibernate (did NOT work with Mint 7, based on 9.04)

HOWEVER: Exercise caution with kernel updates. I wasn't too careful, installed just about every extra kernel-package (modules-backport, lbm-headers, modules-alsa-backports, etc) and found that wireless went down with kernel versions 2.6.31-15 through -17 - -14 and -19 works just fine. This seems to be related to either backported modules and/or libc-updates. (I'll update this post if I find out in more detail.)

People should submit all their hardware to this website: http://www.ubuntuhcl.org/

that way ubuntu.com can link to that website or this thread can and we then don't have to keep replying here.

I bought this bluetooth dongle on Ebay for less than three dollars from Hong Kong, and it words perfectly. I just wanted to post its compatibility, because I would have liked to had some assurance before I made the purchase. I'm attaching a picture to compare to ebay pictures. There are many sellers selling this unnamed product.

The forward and backward buttons work with no problem. So does the volume up and down keys. F5 works as desired, as does the black screen button.
There is no problems with the mouse nor any of the mouse keys.

Also, as a little review
The remote is amazing. Powerful laser pointer, and amazing quality. Definitely recommend it.

There are some issues but they are fixable:
Brightness > 100% fixable
Wifi - works great! But some ppl say that on battery it tends to lessen the signal. That's fixable too, but have no 100% cure yet).
Mic - some said that they made it work. I can't.

The (Elantec) touchpad is incorrectly detected (as a Logitech mouse if I remember right) but all functions including 2 finger scrolling and 3 finger tap (for right click) work correctly.

All hotkeys work, hibernate/suspend/resume all work, Atheros wirless (haven't tested 'n' as I only have a 'g' router) is rock solid anywhere in my house.

I haven't tested the card reader or speaker out/mic in sockets.

Somebody gave me old Compaq Pentium3-500 GHz, with 256mb Ram, 10 GB hard drive. With help from friend we converted it into Ubuntu 8.04. It has been amazingly stable for almost 2 years, just doing updates. . I love it . . Even my wife loves it, . . . never ever a box with a message "you have committed illegal operation, your program will shut down".

Then I converted for my fellow teacher Del Desktop with Intel 2.67 GHz (single core), 500 MB Ram. It works great on Ubuntu 8.04 as well . . :)

3gb sd ram , 250gb hdd
15.6hd trubrite wide screen
dvd super multi with flash label..

I dunno if either of the burners work, but everything else seems to pan out
EXCEPT. well I guess I should put this.
I'm a windows geek, I've always been keen on the windows fronteer, my friend recommened I try out ubuntu because I hate vista, this came with vista, I put win 7 on it loved it until it went ungenuine, so here I am I have ubuntu 9.10

I put it on my acer netbook as well and it works great minus the sound.

The sound and everything works on here except for my fn key fuctions, but the normal functions work and my touch pad ...

which my touch pad is most important to me, as I have kids, and find myself with in many play places and parks using wifi, i wanna be wireless, not have to carry a mouse with me.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to get the touch pad work, or be able to talk me threw it or what not, I am willing to give out my messenger name, It ried to get on IRC but i can't find where to make a lgo in, to get on irc, so i gave that up i'm hopeing for help on here. then I also have one more issue lol

my battery life is like so much less than what it was before it's abrand new battery i replaced it because I figured it went bad it happenes, and I know it's not the best battery out there but I use to get a good 3-4 hours on it with just typeing as i"m writing a book, and now i'm lucky to pull and hour if that out of the thing. toshiba said it's a driver however they do not support ubuntu so they wont help me lmao warrenty or not. so ubuntu u voided my warrenty lol but thats okay i still love you thus far! I'd love u more with longer battery life and a touch pad, I could care less about the rest of the fn functions i can do those all threw your system manually which is okay with me :)

Kubuntu 10.4 Beta 2

Sound and onboard ethernet work right away. Graphics fully usable in 2D mode right away (using default open-source driver), and installing the FGLRX driver brings fully-functional 3D acceleration for the integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200 chip. No glitches or issues at all that I have noticed. Hard to ask for a more painless board to use in Ubuntu.

Edit: there seems to be a bug in power management in the 2.6.32 kernels used in Lucid which prevents this machine from hibernating or suspending (it will hang on both) and will not allow the machine to power off when shutdown. Works fine from the Hardy live CD though.

I am a newcomer to Ubuntu, so please bear with me. I know the following is a lot of data. Note the RAM, GPU, HiDef display, second hard drive, optical drives, and OS are not what shipped with the desktop. I initially installed a second hard drive, downloaded the Ubuntu v9.10 ISO, burned a CD, booted from the CD and installed Ubuntu on the second hard drive. The following are issues I had to resolve. I did not have to repeat these when I upgraded to v10.4 LTS beta2.

1. Commercial DVDs would not play. I assume this is true for all new installs due to license issues. I followed the instructions in the Ubuntu Help Center (from the top toolbar) for playing DVDs and now both optical drives work.

2. No sound. I used System/Administration/Sound, tab Hardware to setup for my configuration. The STAC 92xx series has many options for analog and digital outputs, so of course setup depends on attached sound hardware.

3. The could not configure my dual monitors correctly. I used System/Administration/Hardware Drivers to find and install the Nvidia proprietary driver. This also installed System/Administration/NVIDIA X Server Settings, which worked. However, when I selected the button Save to X Configuration File I got a parsing error for the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Every time I logged in I had to reset the monitor configuration. I believed this was a write permission problem as it never asked for a password. With help from the forum I fixed it as follows:

-Made a backup of the configuration file by pressing Alt+F2 and entering "sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup". I found out X is a capital letter the hard way.

-Next Alt+F2 and entered "gksudo nvidia-settings" and made my choices. In the left panel selected X Server Display Configuration, in the right panel selected the button Save to X Configuration File, which now worked since I had write permission for root. Voila!

Model NAV50 or 532h-2807. MFG Date: Feb. 2010. Wireless: Atheros AR5B95.
Works very well. Webcam and wireless are no problem at all.
Known Issues:

Touchpad scrolling doesn't work in the latest Beta; neither edge- nor two-finger scrolling.
Touchpad's "disable while typing" also doesn't work. But with a few days of practice it's not much trouble.
Microphone doesn't work out of the box, but setting PULSE_SERVER to localhost before running an application seems to fix it. I.e.: /bin/sh -c "PULSE_SERVER= program-name" will launch program-name with full microphone support (program-name can be gnome-sound-recorder, skype, etc.).
Card reader Not found in Ubuntu9.10 also cannot boot from SD at all.

This is a multifunction card slot.

Wireless Card: PCMCIA Edimax-7108PCG

I updated the bios to the latest available [2.70-TRAD] from Toshiba's web page.

And it works suprisingly well! The wireless card worked straight away with no mucking about. It took a while to confirm the actual laptop model number [4280] as there's a label at the bottom of screen that says "Satellite Pro 4200 series" - very confusing indeed.

It's got 1 usb port (v1.1), 24x CD player and a floppy disk drive. I would also like to replace the hard disk with something larger and faster as I've only got 1.8 GB space left free.

**update - hard disk now upgraded, see top of post :)

The playback on youtube is choppy [can a 500MHz processor anywhere provide decent frame-rate playback from youtube?] and it cannot switch itself off at the end of the shut-down process.

Except for the flash playback for youtube, this machine can almost do your typical web browsing. Any suggestions or further tweaks that may help?

Please Only List
1)Version Of Ubuntu
2)Type Of Hardware
3)Hardware Maker
4)Hardware Model

1) 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) 64 bit and 9.10 (Karmic Koala) 32 bit
2) Laptop with built-in microphone, webcam, backlit keyboard, etc
3) Dell
4) Studio 1535

My built-in microphone works well in both versions of Ubuntu. My webcam works through a Flash recorder in Firefox, but I can't get it to work in Cheese in my 8.10 version, though it works fine in Cheese in Ubuntu 9.10.
As for my back-lit keyboard, I had problems with it in the past. I think I remember turning it on, and having the whole GUI of Ubuntu freeze up on me, though that was from a much earlier version of Grub and 8.10. I haven't tried that in a while though.
I had a few problems in the past getting various hardware to work in 8.10, but I think I eventually got mostly everything to work on this laptop. I really like ubuntu a lot, and look forward to using future versions of it. :)

Lucid runs perfectly so far after a few days of use on this new machine.Only problem I had was Clonezilla was causing my monitor to produce an 'out of range' message after a restore of an image. This seems to have been fixed by using a DVI-D monitor cable instead of the older D-SUB.

runs lucid pretty much out of the box except for one thing...the wireless has a kill on boot command and cant be activated in linux (i Used .vbs in windows to automate it).
This can be cured easily and very simply using a screwdriver and small piece of masking tape to cover the kill signal pin.

All the basic hardware works, though after installing from the install CD I had to get the kernel update before the wireless network would operate correctly. I haven't tried the microphone, but sound output, 3D card, LAN, wireless and webcam all work with the latest updates.

The only thing I know of that doesn't work is restarting: I have to shut down and then press the power button to power up, otherwise the screen goes black and nothing happens.

The computer did come with a MS-DOS partition table and four partitions, so I had to tell the system recovery tool to delete the French copy of the OS to free up a partition to install to.

In reference to this posting for help http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1483778

Touchscreen serial.
IBM celeron 2.8ghz
1gig ram
15gig HD
Lucid-lynx 10.04LTS

I had put the WINXP HD back in so I could be sure that the ELO graphics driver would work.
WinXP showed the screen as being a intellitouch 2500S, with this info i sallied forth on another hard drive to try and get Linux to work as seen on some video's.

Out of the box 6.10LTS ELO graphics driver and easily found xorg.conf setting had the touch working (calibration was required but it worked).

I wanted to jump to a later kernel etc so installed Lucid-lynx.
As I believed that xorg.conf in /etc/X11 had been depreciated I googled for help but couldn't find anything.

All the gory details of what my experience is in the above url if you the read needs further help on this.

It's settings where in reference to ELO touchscreen systems and the model 2500S intellitouch.

What did I do?

From the repositories install xserver-xorg-input-elographics.deb
in the folder /user/X11/Xorg.conf.d create a file xorg.conf and enter the lines below

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "ELO Touchscreen"
Driver "elographics"
Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
Option "AlwaysCore"
Option "screenNo" "1"
Option "MinX" "4100"
Option "MinY" "0"
Option "MaxX" "0"
Option "MaxY" "4100"
Option "UntouchDelay" "5"
Option "ReportDelay" "1"

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Xorg configured"
InputDevice "ELO Touchscreen"

In /etc/udev/rules.d/ I created this file 69-touchscreen.rules with the text below.

# Elo Touchscreen
KERNEL=="event*", SUBSYSTEM=="input", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e7", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0020", SYMLINK+="input/evtouch_event"

This got the touch working now for calibration!

I found from Googling a program call touchcal, I downloaded it (source attached)

Logged out and from the login went to command line (note you must compile it first) and to run the calibration program ./touchcal this being in the source file directory.

the resulting numbers I recorded and then rebooted.
Once back in (I am not as comfortable on the linux command line as some) X I edited the above xorg.conf file so the values where below

Option "MinX" "4026"
Option "MinY" "4026"
Option "MaxX" "0"
Option "MaxY" "-16"

This then got the calibration working for 1024x768 screen resolution.

Hope this helps someone else.

Installed 10.04 on a Dell Studio XPS and dual booting with Windows 7. Everything works fine except the headphone jacks. Plug in the headphones and the speaker sound cuts out but no sound through the headphones. Sound through the speakers is fine though.I`ve googled around and this is a known issue, but so far there is no fix available.

1) Ubuntu Karmic, Ubuntu Lucid (extensively tested both versions)
2) Notebook
3) MSI
4) MSI GX 720

It worked out of the box.

Tested devices, ports and interfaces: DVD-ROM, audio (external and internal), webcam, bluetooth, wireless, USB, Ethernet, VGA).

Ports not tested
Firewire, e-SATA, HDMI (i suppose they work fine, only I didn't have any device to use with them)
Modem port (I had problems in the past with laptop MB integrated modem chipsets, particularly as they are usually win-modems and the drivers for them are either proprietary (see Connexant/Linuxant) or not available at all for Linux. In this case (MSI GX 720, I tried using the modem on a fixed telephone line using Efax but it didn't work and I gave up)

Bottom line:
The notebook works wonderfully with Ubuntu.

1a)Version Of Ubuntu 9.10 installed on USB for testing. Worked great

2)Type Of Hardware Laptop
3)Hardware Maker HP
4)Hardware Model Pavillion dv8300 (ex177av)

Tested 9.10 for over a month on the USB stick (8GB) with persistence.
Running 10.04 since released.
Both had to install proprietary video drivers (Nvidea)

Formated both hard disks (2 120GB SATA) set 1st to Ext4 Ubuntu 10.04, 2nd set 2 partitions: 1st partition NTFS to Boot WinXP Media Center edition SP3, 2nd partition NTFS but shared data between Linux & Windows. Everything works great so far.

I have not tried burning CD/DVDs in Linux yet, or lightscribe. Also have not tried the TV tuner yet, as I don't have an input for it currently. Some day maybe I'll test it.

I spend probably 95% of my time in Linux, and even use several windows programs via Wine, so I can continue with the familiar software till I get a chance to find and test Linux equivalents that I like. So I only boot into Windows for very few tasks anymore. Once I get those tasks converted I will remove the Windows from my machine forever!:grin:

Recently had over heating issues. But after reading several threads on these forums and installing some monitors on my task bar the over heat is a thing of the past. Linux and the Ubuntu forums, an unbeatable combination!:biggrin:

Mouse incompatibility cherry xero works in windows 7 but stops my bois from starting up so every time i start up i have to remove the mouse then plug it back in once windows has started up but totally refuses to work in ubuntu

there for im guessing its more a problem with the mouse than ubuuntu but it is annoying having to change mice when my old mouse doesn't like my mouse mat and will skip all over the desktop

don't really expect a fix because its not a highly popular mouse

The workstation is home made with a Gigabyte motherboard and Seagate es drives.

I recommend both of these items.

Sound card has problems (ALSA needs to be upgraded, issues/bug with hda_intel module - errors in log file). Works on and off (may work for some time and then stop working) and only Analog Duplex. If Digital duplex sound is on, the mic is not working. Otherwise it works quite fast, but i suggest an inexpencive PCI sound card to be added in order to get propper sound with this Ubuntu release.

320 GB hard drive

Installed ubuntu 10.04 (64-bit) in dual-boot configuration with Windows 7 (64-bit Home Premium). I used the Windows partition editor to shrink the Windows partition and deleted the HPTOOLS partition (contents saved in Windows). Smallest size Windows would allow was about 150 GB. That left about the same amount of space for ubuntu. After that installation was straightforward.

I added a Logitech laser mouse and Samsung USB DVD drive (shared w/netbook).

Most everything works--minor problem with touch pad not turning off (seen in other HPs).

This is a nice and fast laptop--starts up and shuts down about twice as fast as Windows.

Yes, this was very slow with Windows but not too fast with Ubuntu. There are no drivers for the integrated graphics so don't bother searching for them. I know they don't exist. The OS freezes and at around 30-50 min., it just shows some weird images and stays like that until you force to shut it down. It now has 1GB RAM and I took off the PCI modem and card reader to conserve more power and it also helped in Windows 7 to stop showing me the safely remove hardware dialog for the faulty drivers. The fan gets out of control when the PC is idle. Other than that, the system boots quite fast.

Only Issue: Foobar 2000 works in Wine, but it won't import my whole library (several formats involved) and the sound is fuzzy, very sad, would like to see Foobar make a linux version.

Greetings... My first post! I've checked numerous posts before buying an external hard drive and it seemed complicated. Just wanted to tell you that I just bought a Seagate FreeAgent drive and it works fine. Plug and Play.

Dell Studio XPS 435MT

OS: Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid 64 bit
CPU: Intel core i7-920
6 GB's of DDR3 1066 RAM
640 GB Western Digital Blue HD
ATI Radeon 3650 256 MB video
Sony Optiarc DVD burner

I added: Samsung DVD Burner
I added: 1 TB Seagate HD

As for the rest of the motherboard specifics, chipset, sound, NIC and whatnot- I'm not sure as this is a pre-assembled machine.

Everything is working out of the box. I have had no issues at all. As for the ATI Radeon, I thought I would have a problem, but so far I've had none. I am using the open source driver, I have not tried to install the proprietary one.

I also am using an HP Officejet 6500 all-in-one usb printer, which is working well. This did NOT work OOB. I had to install CUPS, and pretty much much everything that said "HPLIP" that I could find in synaptic. After that it's all good.

The printer is also working great with my 2 Karmic 9.04 systems as well.

Epson TX300F inkjet printer scanner all in one
Installed on Ubuntu 9.10 64bit

I posted a HOW TO here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1577669)

the printer prints... he he :P but as far as I have tried till now if you select monochrome printing from the options the printing goes out of scale.

also the scanner works after the installation of Iscan and now also Xsane picks out the scanner.

with Iscan I can use also the Automatic Document Feeder

I need to install Compiz and emerald to get the 3D Desktop. Could you please send me the link for hte same...and also the instructions on how to install the same


I have a vista home basic enabled laptop which was corrupted by the virtumonde virus and i couldnt get it to bootup. So i decided to install linux. I took a iso file of ubuntu 8.04 LTS to my friends XP machine and created a bootable Live USB using unetbootin. Install went perfectly, no hickups.This is my first linux install on a real computer and so far, i am amazed at how simple it is. Being from a windows background made me think i would have to deal with cryptic command lines and still not get anything working. But letme tell you, it all freaking works right out of the box. Here's my configuration

Compaq Presario V3702AU Laptop

AMD Turion 64 X2, 1.9GHz
1 x 1GB, DDR2-667 Samsung
160 GB, 4200 rpm HDD Western Digital
Nvidia Geforce 7150M GS graphics card (287 MB shared RAM)
Nvidia MCP67M Chipset (Nforce 630M)
Integrated WLAN 802.11b/g Broadcom
Connexant HD Audio
SD Card Reader
Built In webcam 1.3 Mpixel

Installation took 15 minutes + 1.5 hrs to download/install updates. Then it prompted me to download and install propriotory drivers for wlan and gfx which i did and they work smooth. Then i installed compiz+emerald for 3d desktop.

I got the following hardware up and running out of box.
Audio, SD card reader, Webcam, Bluetooth, Volume up/down/mute buttons, Media player buttons play/pause/next/prev etc, Brightness up/down, hibernate button, inbuilt and external microphones, all led indicator lights.

Yet to check out the following:
External monitor, PCI-express slot, firewire, s- video port, quick launch button, HDSOFT Data/Audio modem

I hope this helps other Compaq V3702X users out there who want to migrate to Linux.

Ubuntu 10.04
USB external hard drive
Mobile drive Classic II

This is a 250 GB external hard drive and works fine for me.

Out of the box, it has a single (primary) partition, formatted as FAT32. I used Gparted Live (version 0.6.2-2) to:

1) Shrink this original partition to 35 GB.

2) From the free space released, create an extended partition containing 4 (logical) partitions.

3) In each of these new partitions, created an ext4 file system.

4) Add a meaningful label for each partition, since Ubuntu will then use these labels for mount points when I plug in the external USB drive. For example, a new partition labelled "drama(mp3)" will be mounted at /media/drama(mp3). Otherwise, the partitions will have mount points using UUIDs.

Compaq Presario C500 and a clean install of Ubuntu 10.10

Still fighting to understand how it all works but willing to learn.

Lexmark Z32 printer via USB prints SOME lines garbled from Open Office but there seem to be so many different ways to print and I just cannot get a clear overview of them all (CUPS, lp, lpr, lprm, lpq, Red Hat, Ghostscript etc.) I tried the suggestion at http://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials/262243-introduction-to-printing-in-linux where it says to start cups type the following:
/etc/init.d/cups start


deltaman@plimsoll:~$ /etc/init.d/cups start
Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service cups start

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the start(8) utility, e.g. start cups
deltaman@plimsoll:~$ service cups start
start: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.55" (uid=1000 pid=2506 comm="start) interface="com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Job" member="Start" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination="com.ubuntu.Upstart" (uid=0 pid=1 comm="/sbin/init"))

So what did I do wrong....puzzled of Tonbridge.....

Lexmark have no linux drivers despite other Linux forums pointing to some for the Z600 which might be the one I want but they are seemingly not available when I have lookedhttp://ubuntuforums.org/images/icons/icon9.gif

The two lights on the printer flash after each print and then I have to hard boot the printer to do anything else with it. This does not happen on a windows machine with the same cable/printer.

Canon lide25 scanner will do a rudimentary scan but cannot be associated with a GUI seemingly.
Canon told me to go away, so I WILL go away to HP who have scanner support for Linux.

Getting my Vodafone mobile connect dongle has taken some time to make work, and all is now ok apart from being unable to see how much of my 5GB limit I have used without calling and asking Vodfone!!!

WHilst highly delighted with Ubuntu for speed in general and many features too numerous to mention, I seem to be caught in an upgrade loop similar to that experienced when moving from Windoze XP to Vista where I had to buy a scanner which would fit in with the OS rather than the other way around....

The purpose of this thread is for you, the user, to post what hardware/hardware combination works with Ubuntu for you. If you wish, you may post how the hardware works (configuration related), and the steps you took setting it up. These informations will help other users to choose new hardware and it will also help the UDSF archivers to update the Hardware Compatibility Guide.

How about a link to the UDSF Hardware Compatibility Guide? I searched but could not find anything other than dead links dating back years.

Also... The particular search I'm involved in at the moment is desktop motherboards known to suspend/resume. If you're posting "everything works" please indicate if you've tried this and please give it a try!

many thanks,

Edit: I found the UDSF:https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UDSF

Searching for "hardware Compatibility Guide" gets me:

Your search query "hardware Compatibility Guide" didn't return any results. Please change some terms and refer to HelpOnSearching for more information.
Info (!) Consider performing a full-text search with your search terms. I did that and found lots of apparently obsolete references to laptop compatibility but no hint of an actual guide. :(

I'm not covered by any embargo, and I bought these off a retail store... so

Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.4GHz
MSI P67A-GD55 mainboard, Intel P67, Sata-6G. I used only the 3G ports, USB3 untested, no USB3 stuff lying around.
4GB of cheap Kingston DDR3 RAM
Intel 160GB G2 SSD
ATI 5770

Works fine, works well so far. Networking works as expected.

Recent upgrade

Gigabyte MA785GA-US2H
AMD AthlonII X2 240
Nvidia GeForce 8400GS
1 stick 2 GB crucial PC-6400 DRAM

Not a firebreathing gaming rig but it seems very stable and all the hardware seems to work properly. It suspends and resumes reliably. I had the Nvidia card and Nvidia has a good record with Ubuntu so I chose to not use the onboard ATI video. This replaced a 6 year old Gigabyte board whose SATA ports were occasionally uncooperative. I'll add a second identical stick of RAM soon so I can experiment with virtualization. The MoBo has 4 DRAM slots which doesn't seem common on MicroATX boards.

I picked up a Lenovo H320-4041GU (http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/328254/Lenovo-H320-4041-1GU-Desktop-Computer/) from Office Depot the other day, and I've been very impressed with it. Lots of features packed into a small, fast, powerful package. It's nice!

And what's even nicer is that installing Ubuntu Studio 10.10 (AMD64) went flawlessly. Sound and video "just worked" with a base install. The wireless card (Atheros AR928X, according to lspci) worked fine after I installed wicd. JACK worked without any tinkering, which was another major plus. Basically, everything works the way it's supposed to. I've been using the install for a few days and I haven't noticed any strange quirks or lacks of functionality.

Some things I haven't been able to test:

- The HDMI port
- The multi-card reader

I had a hard time finding anything useful on the Internet about this particular model of computer, so I figured I'd mention it here. In sum, the Lenovo H320 appears to run Ubuntu 10.10 quite reliably.

After switching from Windows Vista to Ubuntu 10.04 (now upgraded to 10.10 Maverick), I got the HPLIP Toolbox from the Ubuntu Software Center and actually got more functionality options for my printer than I had before with the HP OEM software, plus automatic updates through Synaptic Package Manager. Double plus ultra bonus!

My current configuration of my desktop is:
motherboard: Intel HD55HC
processor: Intel i5-750
ram: 8Gib (4*2Gib modules, type: OCZ3G1333LV2G)

i'm running Maverick 64bit and i cannot get the whole 8Gib of ram to be utilized (lshw can see all 8Gib, the system utilizes only 4Gib).

The problem is also present if i try to use only two ram modules in dual channel mode, then the system utilizes only 2Gib, unless i set them so, that the modules are in single channel mode, than the system utilizes 4Gib.

Conclusion - "dual channel" does not work, maybe the second channel cannot be used.

Hardware: Logitech MK320 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse combo

OS: Ubuntu Studio 10.10 (AMD64)

Functionality: Plug and play; works straight out of the box. Most of the hotkeys (volume up/down/mute, calculator, mail, sleep) work as well. A few of the hotkeys (Internet, lock screen) do not, but that's just a matter of configuration, I'm sure.

Overall, I was very impressed! A good product made excellent by the fact that it plays so nicely with Linux.

January 18th, 2011, 05:59 PM
Here's my complete system setup, and it all works out the box. Will list driver version where possible.

I've got Ubuntu 10.10 64bit installed on a dual-boot with Win7. As of posting, the kernel is 2.6.35-24-generic, with Gnome 2.32.0.

Asus P7P55 LX motherboard - so far just don't use any IDE drives as there's still Linux booting issues with the IDE controller for some reason.

Intel Core i5 760

4GB of memory being recognised as 3.9GiB. Not sure if that's actually 4GB as GiB is different to GB.

Samsung hard drive. Not sure what model, but it's a 1TB drive.

Creative 5.1 speakers. All speakers work fine through the sound testing, but haven't been able to test through any other means.

Samsung DVD Writer. Works fine reading disks, not tried writing to any yet.

Nvidia GeForce GTS450. Using 260.19.06 drivers which is the minimum version required for this card.

Samsung SynMaster 943 monitor. Yep, this works as well, even at higher resolutions than Win7 would allow.

Microsoft Natural Ergonic 4000. All the basic buttons work out the box. Not bothered about the extra features.

Logitech MX-400. Works perfectly out the box.

Ubuntu 10.04 on laptop Axer Extensa 5220

This worked nearly straight out of the box. I installed it on the backup partition that Acer had created and the GRUB dual boot routine worked excellently.

Only the wireless network did not work straight away. The acer has a built in Broadcom wireless. To get it working I just plugged it in to a router and clicked from the menu in the top bar System> Administration> Hardware Drivers... and let Ubuntu search for drivers. It came up with some combination of a wrapper and a driver. I selected them both and it worked from then on.

The wireless connection did seem to drop out occasionally but that seemed do fix itself,possibly as a result of downloading updates.

The only thing that is wrong is that sometimes after going into sleep mode, it fails to wake and I have to force it off and reboot it. Not a big problem.

I am currently running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid and am having fantastic results with it.
I recently purchase an IOGear Bluetooth USB Micro Adapter GBU421WM. I plugged it in went to PREFERENCES -> BLUETOOTH and set it up so I could send pics from my phone to my computer.
That was all I did and it works great.
I don't get to help much on here but if I run into something that I can add, I'm doing it.
Thank you Ubuntu for a fantastic OS: 10.04 Lucid.

For some reason I was unable to install with a CD using the drives I found it with or with USB or with an external USB CD drive. I ended up having to plug in a more modern CD/DVD drive and it worked fine. The fact that the MOBO can only take 512 RAM is a real setback. If it wasn't for that it would be a lot better.

Hi, just want to share my sys info :)

motherboard: Gygabite EP45-UD3LR
everything works without any problems with every linux that I've used !
suspend and hibernate (and recovery from..) is very good, no problems occured. used it with ubuntu since ubuntu 8.04 now with 11.04 (everything between :D) ; and tested with various linux live cd, all worked.

CPU: INTEL CORE2DUO E8400 (3GHZ) -what to say, one of the best at that time (that is to say 2 years ago :) )

ram: 4GO DDR2

webcam: logitec UVC webcam 10€ The cheapest ! works with everything (with flash too! for videoconference with service like tokbox or koowy.
Video quality is equal to as that we can have with windows. One rule to follow with webcam is to buy UVC standart ( universal video class ).

apm multicard reader : of course works out/ob :)

That's all folks ! bye

Runs Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit flawlessly.

The only tweak is to blacklist rt2800pci & rt2800lib in etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, to make wireless work correctly.

Wanted to share my hardware profile for my Ubuntu system.

Version = Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Mainboard = Epox KRAI-pro mb (via kt880 chipset)
CPU = Athlon xp 3200+
Memory = 2 gb Crucial PC3200 mem
Graphics Card = Visiontek Radeon x1550 XGE
Harddrive = ata133 bMaxtor 80 gb HDD
Optical Drive = Lite-on Cdrw

No issue with any of the on-board devices, (sound, nic, USB, etc)

For wireless net access I am using a Linksys wusb54gc USB WIFI adapter.

Also I did not have to play with any drivers everything has ran straight out of the box since I off loaded the Nvidia geforce fx 5700 I had in here. I dod have nothing but problems with that card under ubuntu. The ati card installed and has ran without a hitch.
System runs Ubuntu a good deal faster then it runs windows xp.
