    Is the Toshiba U300-154 laptop ubuntu-compatible?

    Hi pals!

    I'd like to know if the Toshiba U300-154 laptop is ubuntu-compatible!

    What about the sound card, the graphics card, the wireless card, the ethernet card, the webcamera and the bluetooth device? Are they ubuntu-compatible?

    I want to run well the compiz-fusion, I want to listen well to music, I want to connect to the internet (via wireless card) and last I want to play with the webcamera and the bluetooth device.

    Does anynone own this laptop?

    Thanks in advance.

    I bought this laptop a week ago. I installed ubuntu on it, no problem at all, everything is working out of the box. The only thing I stumbled upon was the built-in bluetooth radio. It is by default switched off and it uses software to be turned on. Such software is supposed to be compiled in the new ubuntu kernels (2.6.24). Still the utility toshset doesn't work and I haven't found a solution to this yet.

    Updated: I managed to control bluetooth via the omnibook module.
