    Talking Ubuntu 12.04 & Bangho i3-560

    A brief commentary of my experience on installing Ubuntu 12.04 in a Bangho Futura 1500 i3-560 notebook.


    First of all, after installation the system works fine and fast. No popups telling you that something has gone wrong or asking you to send a report to the development team, or just informing that Unity has closed unexpectedly... again. Intel HM65 video card seems to work fine and doesn't requiere additional drivers. The same goes for the soundcard.


    Then: components such as mousepad, bluetooth, webcam, wifi & keyboard special keys works out-of-the-box.


    Some hardware sepcs:


    Processor: Intel Corei3 Serie 2300
    RAM: 4Gb. DDR3.
    HD: SATA 500Gb.
    Chipset: Intel HM65

    Video: Intel HM65 (up to 1748MB)

    Network: 10/100/1000, Wireless 802.11b/g/n

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Asus N53SM-ES72
    Intel Core i7-2670QM (Intel HD 3000 Graphics)
    Discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M 2GB GPU
    6GB RAM

    Dual Booting Win7/Ubuntu 12.04
    Ubuntu install went well, everything looked good and seemed to work out of the box. No BIOS options for switching/disabling GPUs was disappointing. Ubuntu initially defaulted to discrete GPU. No NVIDIA drivers showed in additional drivers. Installed Gnome 3 and it would only run in fallback mode. Installed latest NVIDIA driver, no change. Removed NVIDIA driver and installed Bumblebee, Ubuntu now defaults to Intel GPU, Gnome 3 runs fine, NVIDIA drivers show up in additional drivers, but are not currently active.

    I haven't yet experimented with switching to the NVIDIA GPU and tried the 2 different sets of NVIDIA drivers, but everything works fine so far with integrated graphics.

    Only quirks so far have been playing audio over the bluetooth, rather choppy, but so far the bluetooth in Win7 on this notebook won't even find my device.

    Other quirk seems to be screen brightness turning itself up to max at random when I have it turned down. May be some power setting or something else.

    All in all a pretty painless experience so far making this a pretty great Ubuntu laptop.

    Lenovo Thinkpad T420i works almost perfectly out of the box, save for some hiccups with wireless and integrated graphics.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1)Version Of Ubuntu - Ubuntu 12.04 - Precise Pangolin - 64 Bit
    2)Laptop Maker - Lenovo
    3)Laptop Model - Lenovo Z570.

    Everything works and works good

    Suspend/Resume works (This is the ONLY Linux flavour so far on which this has worked), Changing brightness through laptop keys works, Fn+F2 works (screen off/on), my pppoe connectivity works.

    Best part is, this is the only version and flavour of Linux on which my battery works for 3.5 hours. That too while I am downloading cinammon, installing it, browsing the net, downloading updates, installing themes etc.

    Best version of Linux I've used till date.

    There are some laptop heating issues, but the temperature howers between 37C when Idle and 51C when all the activities mentioned above are going on.

    Thank you Ubuntu Developers, now I am finally able to completely move off Windows.

    Everything working smooth, super fast, and battery is pretty good. The only problem is by default, Suspend/Resume doesn't work, but it has an easy fix in the ubuntu community. Super happy, that my laptop is performing better than my macbook pro. ubuntu rocks!

    Volume mute/unmute does not work, but volume up/down does. Intel 5000-series wireless (Shiloh chipset) has a problem connecting to 802.11n networks in Ubuntu 10.10 through 12.04, but this can be remedied (disabled) by putting the following line in a text file under /etc/modprobe.d (e.g., /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf):

    Code:
    options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1
    All other hardware appears to work fine.

    Smile Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Hi Guys,

    My view on Kubuntu working on my Dell XPS L510X laptop. I have been running Kubuntu 11.04 for a while now and below are few of my observations...

    Overall performance - So far it has been a great ride on the new distro. This is my first time using any K(ubuntu) distro and i am happy with it so far and it has been an easy transition for me from Windows to Kubuntu. Although you need to get familiar with the new environment, the new applications etc, need to read about them and go through most of the forums to get it working as you need to. Overall a great Distro so far.

    Peripherals (wifi, ports) - Most of the media buttons were activated during the install and i had not much to worry about buttons not working. However, i found the brightness button was not working and after a few searches found a solution to the problem. In case brightness button does not work you need to add the below line as a root user.

    echo 0 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness

    Wifi didn't have much issues and worked perfectly fine.

    HDMI - I am having problems with my HDMI output though. I am not able to get hdmi working on my TV. I have been trying to search for solutions but to no avail. If anyone could help me out with it, would be great.

    Battery life with Kubuntu - I have not seen much of a difference in the battery life while using it. Its as same as Windows7 loaded on my laptop.

    Boot speed- Boot speed has been incredible. It takes less than a minute for me to start of my work.

    This is a first review so far as per my experience. once i have a strong hold on Kubuntu i will do a detailed overview on it.

    Hope this helps someone.
