[ubuntu] SD card reader for Acer AO756

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm running xubuntu 12.04 on my Acer 756 netbook; everything works except for the sdcard: It does not show up under lspci (I tried to boot with or without the sdcard inserted). It does work in window 7. After some digging I found this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1506925&page=2 (note that this thread is for the atom netbook whereas the 756 is bascially sandy bridge, which is why I start a new thread). I tried the various suggestions in that thread but none works. The suggestions in post #70 there does help a bit: (1) edit /etc/default/grub with GRUB_CMDLINE_L (Hardware)
