In the next couple of weeks i will be buying a second hand Alienware laptop from a guy in work. i would like to know if anyone has ever had one of these laptops and tried putting ubuntu onto them.
the laptop will be coming with windows 7 64bit, not sure wether its proffesional or home etc. i'm thinking of keeping the windows in a partition and dual booting it with ubuntu.
my main concern is if i was running the ubuntu side would the drivers still work for the backlit keyboards aswell as the many other lights that come with alienware.
thanks in advance for any feedback.
i installed ubuntu on my m11xr1 yesterday.
the lights will continue to act like they were set in windows
before and you can change them using the tool pyAlienFX:
