Hi there,Im Alex from Portugal, im not a expert at linux, iv been using ubuntu on my laptop as main os since last year. Well i like ubuntu and all, but the problem was the stability.... ubuntu didn't support my sound card :S, tht really pissed me off, and i decided to look for the right kernel for my laptop. I changed to Fedora, Mint, Mandriva,Suse, and others...
I hope this isn't too off-topic....my experiences with Ubuntu have been really great, but I've fallen into a pattern where either something works great by default (which is awesome), or it doesn't. When it doesn't, I Google the problem and randomly copy/paste solutions until it works.
In another thread someone said the HDMI doesn't work reliably on the Gazelle. Can someone tell me if this is true? Does installing Ubuntu 13.10 make it work? I use my laptop for a lot of presentations and movie watching so it's important that HDMI works well for both sound and video.
Also, can someone upload a sample of the microphone quality?
I have broadcom wireless card in my laptop, which doesn't work in ubuntu, Kali etc. linux distros. I have tried a lot, but even when it works packages like aircrack-ng doesn't doesn't function properly. I am now really sick of all this. At the end i am thinking of using a USB wireless adapter. Can it work fine. If yes which one are good enough. or should i replace the card with Atheros or others
hmmm. so I plugged in a TV with an HDMI cable and got video! awesome! but oh no, there's no sound!
This is from a laptop with an ATI Radeon card built in. Analog audio works and plays out from the laptop's speakers. But selecting the HDMI card doesn't play audio out the TV speakers. I know the hardware is good, because it works in Ubuntu, and so linux can do it.
I'm running ubuntu on an asus chromebox using crouton. Works relatively well, but I have one problem concerning midi. I'm not talking about having to install timidity or fluidsynth or something similar. I tried that already. I'm trying to run Guitar pro 5 using wine. It works but without any sound.
Picked this laptop up recently and installed Ubuntu LTS 12.04.1 and it works brilliant right out of the box. No issues, sound, wireless, webcam, bluetooth all works and works well. Laptop runs the same temp as it did in Windows but far more snappier. Added x-swat ppa for latest Intel driver.
