have you tried running the direct app in wine?

I installed Ubuntu 9.04 with the instructions of the Asus G50V
Everything works fine, but I can't manage to customise the LEDs on the cover of the Laptop. Someone have any idea what to do?

Also see the Asus G50V page; I just updated that entry with a few tweaks (headphone sense, lights, numpad behavior, RAID, OLED). Follow the link to the MonALISA Team Blog for details on configuring Intel Wireless.

Installed Gentoo AMD64 this weekend. Got kde 4.2 up and running. Still need to do sound, wireless, touchpad, cdrom, etc.
