Notes

Ubuntu 12.04 and Fedora 19 & 20 have been tested.

Touchpad

1. Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, add the following:

blacklist acer-wmi

2. Reboot, press Fn+F7 at login

Brightness Control

1. Edit /etc/default/grub, and add the following:

At GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX= add “acpi_osi_Linux”
At GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT add “quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor”

2. Update GRUB

sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

3. Reboot, test brightness with Fn+Left/Right arrow keys

Graphics drivers

I have only managed to properly get the graphics card to work on Fedora 19 & 20. The nouveau driver does not work(the last time I tested was in 2013).

Don't forget to add yourself to the bumblebee user group
sudo usermod -a -G bumblebee yourusername

Summary

No problems so far.
