I've got this funny idea which i'd like to try out if it exists:
is it possible to have the touch-pad of my laptop (Dell Vostro 1510) to emulate a touch-screen?
The touchpad would be a miniature representation of the screen. For instance: pressing the touchpad on the top-left would move the pointer and press in the top-left of the screen accordingly.
I have just installed Ubuntu on my laptop (Dell Vostro 1510) as a side to my windows 7. I am quite new to Ubuntu and do not have any experience with Linux. After installing Ubuntu, I tried using system settings>hardware>additional hardwares to find the driver for my laptop's wifi but it didn't work. I appreciate if you can help me solving this problem.
I am running ubuntu 11.10 64bit on a Dell Vostro 3350. I have had some strange things going on.
When i startup ubuntu the windows are flashing/blinking and the touchpad is having hiccups (the usb connected mouse does not suffer from this). after a while this goes away and ubuntu is running like it should.
Dell is smartly release the new Dell Vostro 3400, the new laptop for small business purposes. Dell Vostro 3400 is a good combination between mobility and power. This laptop is powered by Intel Core i5 430M at 2.26 GHz, 4GB DDR3 memory and 320 GB Hard drive capacity.
My Dell Vostro 1520's Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card must not have been set-up correctly, as the Network Manager won't even let me select the wireless tab. Please just explain to me, step by step, what exactly I must do to make it work!
