    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    1) Ubuntu Natty Narwhal 11.04
    2) Samsung
    3) Netbook NC210

    Installed fine, and works perfectly once the excellent utilities from the Voria repository have been installed (for the backlight control and function keys), and a patch from System 76 enabled the Elantech touchpad to work (previously it was recognised as a ps mouse). I have also installed the Kubuntu desktop (sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop) as a login option so that I can use either Ubuntu or Kubuntu.

    A monkey could have installed this! All of the hardware works in 11.04, including the elusive Texas Instruments PCIxx21 Cardbus controller. This means that I can read SD cards and anything I plug into the Cardbus (PCMCIA slot)--a HUGE plus (given it would not work with any Windows XP drivers).

    I ran into 2 small software glitches: I could not play any encrypted DVD video, but that was resolved here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...ts/PlayingDVDs

    The other problem was with the installation of wi-fi printing for an HP Photosmart C4580. The install procedure was not obvious, so this procedure helped immensely: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1566238

    Ubuntu 11.04 breathes new life into this old laptop. It really runs well, is stable, and FAST!!

    Cheers!

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    1)Version Of Ubuntu - 11.10 beta1 x86
    2)Laptop Maker - Asus
    3)Laptop Model - N53SV

    almost everything works out of the box. just few issues:

    1) suspend/hibernate doesn't work - there are problems with usb3 module. easy workaround http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...98&postcount=7 - after applying it suspend works fine, i haven't tested hibernate yet, but i'm sure it does too
    2) switching between intel/nvidia card works fine with ironhide (maybe bumblebee works too, haven't tested). after resuming from suspend nvidia card stops working - you just have to enable nvidia everytime before suspend, i.e. put a symlink in /etc/pm/sleep.d/30_enable-nvidia which points to /usr/local/bin/ironhide-enablecard - and nvidia will work fine after suspend
    3) all Fn keys are working, with exception for Fn+F9 - which toggles touchpad on/off. Fn+F9 does not produce any message in xev, so i have written simple script which toggles touchpad via xinput and assigned it to another hotkey
    4) laptop's fan does not stop - i don't know, if this is a bug or not - lazy to boot in windows and check. this does not bother me, so i dont care
