Two days ago I’ve updated Ubuntu to 11.10 and it worked well.
I started from scratch, so I won’t have to deal with “old” problems:
Here is my setup:
- Plain vanilla Lenovo Z370
- Harddrive was replaced by a 60 Gb Sata2 SSD
- Ubuntu 11.10 (Desktop edition)
- I installed the IdeaPad Driver Package (get it here) to get rid of a lot of the “Keycode 240”
On the pro side:
- The sd-card reader works out of the f**king box!
- The key manager works!
- Fn + F1 = Suspend to ram!
- Fn + F2 = Switch the Backlite off
- Fn + F5 = Switch all wireless connections off
- Fn + F8 = Activates Num “block”
- Fn +F9-F12 = Media keys (Play, Stop, Next, Previous) tested in Banshee
- Fn + Arrow left + Arrow right = Louder and quiter
On the down side:
- Special keys 1-3 kill the deskop
- Special keys 4-5 didn’t work
- Frequently sended “keycode 240” interupts the standby
- Fn functions:
- Fn + Esc = Nothing happens (should disable the camera)
- Fn + F4 = No function (should do …)
- Fn + F6 = No function (should disable the touchpad)
- Fn + Arrow Up, Arrow Down (is a little bit buggy) (Should adjust the intensity of the backlite)
- HDMI connection with my 23” Monitor
- Fn + F3 = Switch between display modes (for beamer and external displays)
- The new Ubuntu feels like it uses more energy (which I can’t prove right now)
