I'm new to ubuntu 11.04 and running on Acer Aspire 7741. In general things seem to work well. However, I have some issues with the webcam and touch pad - both work, but with limitations.

The crystal eye webcam works, but the video quality is not nearly as good with ubuntu 11.04 as the video quality is with Windows 7.

The touch pad generally works except for the right hand scroll area.

In both cases, I suspect that I'm not using the correct drivers - I've done now special installations for the webcam or touch pad.

Suggestions?
