    Working well with one exception: WLAN doesn't work out of the box.

    The internal wireless card is reported as rtl8723e. To make it work, you have to hunt the Realtek website and install the drivers.
    These are limited to Linux [2.6 - 3.2] (3.2 is used on Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS).
    Unless you find another way, you will have to re-install the drivers every time you update the kernel. You can also disable kernel updates by "locking package version" of the "linux-image" package with synaptic, muon, "dpkg --set-selections", "aptitude hold", etc.
    If you get "Hard blocked: Yes" with "rfkill list", press "Fn + F12" (wireless key). This turns hard blocking off.
    DO NOT INSTALL compat-wireless on your own but use the one "provided" by Realtek.

    I lost 20 minutes looking into the manual (not provided by ASUS, not even on their website) to find it out:

    To make the boot menu appear, press F12 *repeatedly*.
    Computer setup (which would be wrongly named "BIOS setup" these days) will launch if you press F2 repeatedly.

    Most components work fine.
    I had to hunt down to get keyboard backlighting to work.
    Screen brightness keys F3 and F4 don't work but brightness can be adjusted on the system out of the box. I simply chose another keyboard shortcut to do it. Other multimedia keys work fine.
    As with many laptops, boot-repair was needed.
    Some USB periphereals (already found 2: ScanSnap S1500 and another one) don't work because of broken DSDT. "ACPI Exception: ...AML_PACKAGE_LIMIT... beyond end of object" is reported by dmesg.

    Sometimes it looses info about battery and fan control is disabled (mostly after waking up from sleep).
    I noticed sleep (suspend-to-ram) drains the battery. After 1 or 2 days it's empty.

    HDMI output does not work due to Optimus, even with bumblebee.
    (I suppose it's the same with VGA, althrough I didn't test it.)
    Even on pre-installed Windows 7 HDMI audio doesn't work 8/10 times...

    Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit
    Satellite P845-S4200

    Function keys don't all work. Volume works fine, but the mute button causes issues. Brightness, wifi antenna, touchpad, all don't work and only seem to put the laptop into sleep mode. The button on the touchpad for disable doesn't work either. Had to install touchpad-indicator.

    Everything else works great out of the box.
    More lock and loll.

    everything worked good. installation,wireless,keyboard.... the only hardware being problematic is the battery charge level and time to empty etc..... which is not working properly
    nvidia driver needed.

    Fresh install of Xubuntu 12.04 (32 bit): Everything works including camera and wirefree (after installation and updating just boot without internet cable and it's on).

    Using only open-source Nvidia drivers.

    Interestingly, when using Xubuntu 12.10 the file /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf must be edited and managed=false should be set to true. Thanks to this post.

    In 13.04 it works again without any modifications needed.

    Wirefree card is Intel 3945ABG.

    If you install Buntu 17.10 remember to download a new ISO file.

    Old files might contain a bug which can damage UEFI hardware. Updating an existing installation and upgrading to 17.10 (if one has faith in upgrades in general) are safe.

    Everything I've tested has worked great out of the gate, except the Alps touchpad. It was initially detected as a PS2 mouse. It worked, but could not be configured at all. After the fix below, and a little tweaking of the settings, it works beautifully - including 2 finger scroll and disable during typing:

    I've been hitting the system pretty hard for about 4 days and so far I am thrilled to have a newer Ubuntu compatible laptop.

    1)Version Of Ubuntu

    2)Laptop Maker

    3)Laptop Model
    Pavilion DV6-3230us

    dual boot with W7 works perfect.

    tip: HP uses all four available hd partitions as follows --operating system partition, backup operating system partition, HP Tools partition, user partition-- you will have to remove at least one to dual boot with Ubuntu. I removed the backup partition, resized it, and installed Ubuntu there. This laptop has a fingerprint scanner that isn't compatible with Linu
    x, or W8 for that matter
