    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Model: HP G62-435DX
    Specs:
    • AMD Turion II P540 processor
    • 4 GB RAM
    • ATI Radeon HD 4250
    • 320 GB HD

    OS: Dual boot-
    • Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
    • Ubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35-28-generic-pae)

    Compatability: Everything seems to work "out of the box"
    • Graphics, Visual Effects in Gnome on "Extra" (using ATI proprietary drivers)
    • Webcam and microphone (tested with Skype, Cheese photo booth)
    • Speakers, quality is "sound" (hehe)
    • Touchpad works. Two-finger scrolling capability enabled by synaptics-dkms package.
    • HDMI output: no hassle; plug and play (tested with AOC Envision TV)
    • SD Card reader: flawless. Inserted 8GB card and could easily import photos using Shotwell's pop-up dialog.
    • Keyboard: All good. Function key functionality is toggled in the BIOS (e.g. does Fn+F12 send F12 or toggle wifi radio)
    • Hardware buttons: Brightness keys, sound keys, wifi toggle, and application shortcut keys all work.


    Issues:
    • Touchpad light-sensing on/off switch does not work
    • Battery life is terrible. Doing normal web browsing with lowered LED brightness will drop the charge 50% in less than an hour. I haven't tested it in Windows 7 for comparison because I almost never boot into it. Although the gnome battery indicator always says "Laptop battery (estimating...)", the percentage can be found by clicking it and opening Power Statistics.


    Conclusion:
    After reading some of the headaches other HP G62 owners experienced using Ubuntu, I expected nothing to work. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this particular model (AMD/ATI) works almost like it was designed for Ubuntu. I will update this post as I gain more experience with the laptop and possibly discover hidden bugs.

    Everything works except bluetooth. I had some issues with compiz and the integrated GPU, that caused my laptop to crash. This was solved by setting visual effects to 'none'.

    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.
    i am a novice, also run ubuntu on an HP Pavilion dv6.
    under preferences it shows 'monitor unknown' and only offers 800x600 resolution.
    the screen allows 1366x768. i tried various xrandr commands, but cannot figure out how to get the better resolution to picked up by ubuntu.
    please help

    Compal NBLB2 laptop with Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit. Configured and sold as an "Enigma" by http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/

    Everything works out of the box except the fingerprint reader. I am hoping to fix that by geeking around with thinkfinger and/or fprint. EDIT: Fprint cannot see the fingerprint scanner.

    Had some strange mouse freezing issues at first, but they went away when I activated the proprietary graphics driver.

    HP G60-445DX
    Vista Home Premium SP-2 32-Bit
    NVIDIA GeForce 8200M
    AMD Turion Dual_Core RM-75 2.20 GHz
    Ram 3.0 GB

    Installed a new Western Digital 500 GB HDD. Installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
    I normally do not make a swap or use hibernation, but, as more local people are asking of this feature, I made a 3 GB swap to test and showoff the hibernation, "Hoping" it went into hibernation and returned to my saved work. 8~P It worked!
    Both suspend/hibernation return to a dimmed display and I have to increase birghtness, no problem there.
    The fn keys all seem to work, use fn f7-8 for brightness, f9-12 control Rhythmbox.
    Bluetooth works, I not really use, but, tested it. Can not say everything bluetooth work?
    I installed Cheese as a quick and tested the WebCam, so, I assuming it works with most anything.
    Open source windows programs I wanted, only a few, work in wine.
    I am very pleased on this install for a Laptop and to say goodbye to "micro-headache winders".

    I bought a Windows 7 OEM back whenever, and since all my Desktops and Laptops are Linux, I guess there nothing to install it on, LOL.
    I never lie, but, what I say, may not always be true! Store Laptop; HP G60-445DX. Home_brew Desktop Asus A8R32-MVP Deluxe,AMD64 2.4GHz, 2GB RAM. Others!

    Hey

    I own a Sony Vaio VGN-FW139e and Ubuntu works on the machine almost like a charm. The only setback is glitches with the double tap and tap dragging, which I guess I just have to get used to. Other than that it's working perfectly. No extra setup at all.
