This used to work (at least once) as I was the one that provided the driver but apparently there have been some kernel changes since.

    If you get a freeze while loading the module you'll also get a freeze on boot so you'll have to edit your grub boot line to change 'ro' to 'rw' and add 'init=/bin/bash' (no quotes on either) so you can boot to a shell, run `ndiswrapper -r bcmwl5 && sync` then hold the power button to shut down.
    Where are the packages? Are they in ubuntu repo or do we have to back port?

    Ok, scratch that, it looks like bluetooth works too, it just needs the id (05ac:821a) added to the driver. Here is a quick package that does this. It doesn't seem to want to install the kernel module after installing the package but I just did `sudo dkms uninstall -m btusb -v 1.0.6 && sudo dkms install -m btusb -v 1.0.6 --force` after installing the package to force it to install the module.

    Did you get right clicking working? I have been watching the wiki and haven't seen anything.

    They're in this thread somewhere, I think page 6.

    Just a question about graphics. I'm running kubuntu on the mpb 13" and I experienced a lot of graphical bug especially on windows border and on some scrolling bar and drop down lists. Do you have the same problem ?

    sudo lsusb -v > lsusb.txt 2>&1
    sudo acpidump > acpidump.bin
    The files should be named: lspci.txt, lsusb.txt, and acpidump.bin. The latter command needs the additional package acpidump.

    Please don't forget to mention your exact machine. If in doubt, run:
    Code:
    sudo dmidecode --string system-product-name
    thanks & ciao,

    Hi Mario,

    Hi,

    I've done the same --force trick to all the dkms modules in dkms-packages-natty-for-testing.tar.gz and I do have the keyboard and mouse working now.

    The hid, hid-apple and bcm5974 dkms packages for natty are now available in the mactel ppa. Also, the fixed 2.6.38 has been released, so within a day or so, there should be no problems with dkms installs (i.e., no need to use --force anymore).

    Enjoy!

    I have that "problem" as well. I'ts probably kwin specific. Tried turning off blur and transparency, but that wasn't it unfortunately.

    Gives no output. I might as well send you the full output of IOPower and you can grep all you want
    this command isn't that important, since i already found the device in the ACPI tables.

    that's very interesting.

    so, you can confirm that backlight adjustment does work on Linux? that's also very interesting. do you know which driver is responsible for this? and what does
    Code:
    ls -l /sys/class/backlight/
    output?

    thanks & ciao,
