    Ubuntu 10.10
    Aspire 5745G

    I was also a little concerned about my webcam, but that worked OOTB, but I did have to do a work-around to get the microphone to work.

    Pulse Audio, and a toggle of a switch here and there, and it now works fine.

    Lightbulb Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    1)Ubuntu 10.10 maverick
    3)m275 tablet PC

    As far as i have used it Ubuntu 10.10 is good for the M275. The tablet function works out of the box.
    none of the special buttons seem to work
    their is no auto-calibration program

    Unhappy Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Ubuntu Version: 10.04 Lucid Lynx (using 64 bit... not sure if I should)
    Laptop Maker: Toshiba
    Laptop Model: Satellite l500 -oow

    -Lucid works fine accept that the wireless lan doesn't work.

    Wireless card- Realtek RTL8192E Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E

    trouble shooting steps taken:
    -several updates and restarts

    - tried apt get commands:
    install wifi-radar, then
    gksu wifi-radar.

    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    sudo iwlist scan

    Any ideas what my problem is or any way to fix it. I am willing to use an older version of Ubuntu so long as I have Wireless internet. I use Ubuntu for my school work.
    -currently have Windows Vista 64 bit and Ubuntu 10.04 dual booted on this machine. Wireless is important as I use my laptop all over campus for papers and classes.

    Installs smoothly. Needs wired internet at first to get the Nvidia and Wifi drivers installed via the Hardware Drivers tool.

    Not working:
    The fingerprint reader is a mystery.
    Sound is touch and go and plugging headphones in doesn't mute main speakers.

    This is my thread asking about HP Pavilion dv6-3125sa
    Do you think I would have similar problems?
    can anyone answer the questions I posted in my thread ? thanks!

    Talking Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Dell XPS Gen 1
    3.4 Mhz 2 gig memory 360 HD.
    All works just fine except I can't find the correct driver for my DLink DGE-660TD wired external card.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Reporting a "semi-compatible" laptop--Lubuntu 10.10.
    Thinkpad X100e by Lenovo,
    AMD Neo X2 (dual core) CPU;
    RTL8172 (lspci thinks its RTL8191SE) wireless: worst problem here--
    connections are extremely flaky on power, though it's working a lot better on battery (?!?)--with 10.04, others reported this chip as not working on battery; drivers not built in the original 10.04 kernel

    RTL81xx gigabit ethernet: NOT TESTED. I have high hopes, though--it's Realtek ethernet, and I've had good luck previously.

    ATI Radeon Mobility 3200: REQUIRES radeon.modeset=0 kernel parameter; will freeze up quick if you don't specify this; adding 'xforcevesa' will cause freezes later on. Am installing fglrx.

    UltraNav (TrackPoint + Synaptics touchpad): Works, but middle click scroll has to be configured manually.

    Azalia audio: Fully functional; haven't tested with earphones (others have said that speakers don't mute)
    Webcam: Functional, but no more impressive than on Windows.
    Internal mic (by webcam): Funtional-- a fun 'test' is:
    --if you enjoy feedback.

    Battery: No idear how long it lasts; Lenovo says 5 hrs under Windows, others say 3-4.5 (maybe ~3.5 here, as uptime=47 min & g-p-m claims 2:45 left)

    Fn-keys: NOT WORKING.
