Notes

Have been using Ubuntu 10.10 AMD64 for 1 month, system is very stable. Attempting to plug any device into the USB 3.0 port disables all USB ports. About one minute after unplugging the device from the 3.0 port normal function returns to the 2.0 ports. Card reader not working but only tested using 2GB SD card. After upgrading to the 260.19.06 Nvidia Proprietary Drivers using the Ubuntu update manager some minor visual errors are present on the top 1/4 of the screen. Battery time is very good even with the screen back light locked at 100%

Mouse has random freezes on 11.10

James, 2011/12/03 03:24

11.10 ubuntu has issues with graphics with the proprietary drivers. There is some artifacting and stuttering.

Fernando, 2011/07/31 01:50

Hola amigos, desde argentina escribo. Tengo esta maquina hace unos 4 meses y uso ubuntu 10.10. Aqui los resultados:

_Buenas gráficas, aunque los drivers de nvidia para ubuntu no logran todavía obtener el máximo beneficio de la tarjeta gráfica.
_No funciona el lector de tarjetas con un adaptador. (Tarjeta de 2g probada).

Estare viendo sus comentarios para seguir actualizándome.

Saludos.

Thank you for your post.

I have the ASUS G73S running Ubuntu 11.04/64bit. Your notes on “Suspend” fixed my suspend issues (hooray). Some users might benefit from knowing that this is a script file, and must be have permissions set as executable or it will be ignored.

Thank you for your useful Documentary,
I do the instructions above on my Notebook “ASUS-G53JW-A1” in Ubuntu 10.04. Keyboard backlit was fixed, but still I can't Hibernate!
Also, I have some problem with my sound card!
in Windows I can hear sound from both internal speakers and headphone, but in Ubuntu I can onle hear sound from headphone and no sounds play from internal speakers!!
I use aplay -l and the result is:

hamed@ubuntu:~$ sudo aplay -l
[sudo] password for hamed:
List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC259 Analog [ALC259 Analog]

Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 1: ALC259 Digital [ALC259 Digital]

Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


I think there is multi card conflic, and I think this problem is occured after installing NVIDIA graphical drivers!

Can you help me to solve this problem?
Thank you

I had this same problem in Ubuntu 10.10 AMD 64. Problem seemed to be related to updating some packages. The issue worked itself out for me, very weird. Here's an unanswered forum thread I started on the topic:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1714162

You can add to that forum post and hopefully with more info the issue can be solved.
