There's gotta be a way to fix it yet retain the bells and whistles.
Also, my fn+f2 doesn't work to disable the wireless. Anyone else have this issue?
Searched a lot around ubuntu, debian and arch forums. Is a common "bug" for a lot notebooks. And is releated to DSDT tables. Maybe Asus will solve it with the next bios updates.......
And I've also lost the visual indicator when I change the brightness, but for me is a minor thing right now.
Just wanted to drop by and offer my experience with my new UX31A Touch Zenbook. Running Ubuntu Gnome Remix 12.10 and the 3.6.11 mainline kernel this thing handles like a dream. The only two minor issues are the ambient light sensor doesn't work and the display brightness keys don't control display brightness. I can, however, set this in the display settings. I didn't have to mess with anything. It just works. Battery life seems good, the backlit keyboard works and can be adjusted with the function keys. Suspend works perfectly and the IPS display on this thing is awesome.
The touch screen works for basic single tap actions. I haven't experimented with it further as it just happens that I got the model with touch as it wasn't something I was looking for.
Performance is excellent and even with HD video playing the fan is still very quiet.
If you are in the market for an Ultrabook and plan to spend Ultrabook money, this should be something you are looking at. Great experience so far.
I tried making a keyboard shortcut and fn + f2 doesn't register as anything, whereas fn + f5 comes up as the correct brightnessdown code (forget precisely what it is called).
I just wrote a bash script to enable/disable wifi and created a keyboard shortcut and set it to the fn + f2 key (your last post says the key is not recognised, on mine it shows up as "WLAN" in the keyboard shortcut
Here is the bash script (my 1st ever so someone can improve/rewrite it with bluetooth and maybe get the key light to work)
Code:#! /bin/bash nm=`nmcli -t -f NET-ENABLED nm` wifi=`nmcli -t -f WIFI nm` if [ "$nm" == "disabled" ] then echo "turning on networking" `nmcli nm enable true` echo "turning on wifi" `nmcli nm wifi on` else if [ "$wifi" == "enabled" ] then echo "turning off wifi" `nmcli nm wifi off` else echo "turning on wifi" `nmcli nm wifi on` fi fi

Hi guys ive run into a problem.
I update the kernel following the wiki to 3.7.2 :
then updated the grub per salvatore94 postGrab all .deb-packages for your cpu architecture (most likely amd64) but don't forget linux-headers-3.7.*_all.deb! Assuming you downloaded all these files to ~/Downloads/, execute the following commands:
sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/linux-*-3.7.*.deb
I tried replacing "quiet splash acpi_osi=" with “nomodeset” but that didn't fix it.
The only way I can boot to X is via selecting "Advanced options for Ubuntu" in the grub menu and booting kernel 3.5.0-21
