Я недавно поставил убунту 14,04 64-разрядную отказывается работать ZTE mf180 usb-модем beeline модель i3-2…. подскажите какую версию поставить на него лучше и лт что можно сделать с модемом?

It requires a lot of hussle to make the graphics card work. With most of the distributions you will not have 3d acceleration out of the box. I regretted buying it because of that reason.

Webcam working fine with Arch Linux

I use Acer Aspire V3-571G with Core i5-3210M, NVidia GT630M and 8GB Ram.
My Linux distro is Sabayon Linux (KDE 4.10.2) with Kernel 3.8.5.
I can confirm,
Bluetooth is working since Kernel 3.8,
VGA out is working,
Suspend to disk / ram is working,
Build-In Micro and Plug-In Micro is working,
Headphone port is working.

I have problems with USB3, so I connect USB3-drive on USB2.
But for USB2 devices (Mouse, dvb-t …) on USB3, it works fine.

nice computer, big screen.. all works out of the box with ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. only thing causing problems is the build-in bluetooth, which cant be found by my s2.. brightness settings are also rather crude..
other than that, no problems..
