I've Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my TM7730. I've put in a “D-Link DFE-690TXD Fast Ethernet cardbus notebook adapter” to have my acer connected to my home network. After boot everything worked just fine without having any additional drivers installed.

After a bit of Google:
fingerprint reader:

Just a note to let ya know that I'm running the Acer 7730 with a version of ubuntu 8.10 and it has actually worked pretty well. That is wireless, graphics, sound and ethernet all working without a glitch. (and no additional files needed either)
