Acer Aspire 5750ZG

Introduction

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on Acer Aspire 5750ZG. It mostly works, but there are some problems that you should solve and a few tweaks that will lower the temperature, fan noise, and make your laptop battery last longer. See notes!

Acer Aspire 5750ZG is not made with Linux in mind but with a bit of tweaking it will work well. I've wrote a guide on how to set it up:
