http://www.ubuntux.org – Hello. Firstly, I'm a full on Noob but I'm learning fast. If you do happen to have any fixes for me, please be really descriptive so that I can follow. Tx :-) I finally had enough of Windows and 3 weeks ago I bombed it and clean installed 9.10 desktop version on my Gigabyte T1028M Netbook. I had a lot of problems with it, the worst of which was that it did a lot of hanging all the time. Someone told me how to check cpu compatibility in /var/log/dmesg and it turns out that Intel Atom is not on the list. So then I installed Netbook Remix over that and the hanging problem was solved. But I am having other problems now. Here are a few: 1] No touchpad. I've spent a week with this and have found no fix anywhere. Its making me crazy. There are no options for touchpad within System>Preferences>Mouse. I have a suspition it has to do with the fact that the T1028 has a multitouch touchpad (1,2 and 3 finger gestures. Very handy feature) read more (Distributions)
