    How to run Ubuntu 12.10 on the HP dv6t-6100
    ~Up-to-date as of November 24th, 2012~


    So if you have the laptop pictured above, these are the steps too make Ubuntu 12.10 run without problems. THIS TUTORIAL ASSUMES YOU"RE USING 64BIT

    Here are the things that, for me, didn't work out of the box:
    - Switchable graphics
    - Beats Audio
    - Screen brightness adjustment
    - Wifi after suspend
    - Finger print reader <---no fix for this

    Code:
    LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/lib/fglrx/dri
    if [ `uname -m` = 'x86_64' ]; then
      if [ -d /usr/lib32/fglrx/dri ]; then
        LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=${LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH}:/usr/lib32/fglrx/dri:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri
        if [ ! -z $LD_LIBRARY_PATH ]; then
        LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:
        fi
        LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}/usr/lib32
        export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
