I also have Asus P52Jc (i5-480M) and I'd like to describe my experience with Linux systems:

  • Fedora 16 64-bit with GNOME desktop environment runs perfectly good
  • Ubuntu 12.04 (64-bit, GNOME) works without any problems
  • work with Debian 6.0 was much worse - I couldn't establish connection to any Wi-Fi network and touchpad support was very poor
  • Backtrack Linux 5r3 (also 64-bit version with GNOME GUI) - there is a crash during booting from LiveCD, I've tried many ways to solve the problem, but none of them was successful (maybe I'll try again with 32-bit v. or KDE)

By the way, for testing of developed software Fedora 17, Ubuntu 12.04, Gentoo, Debian 6.0, Debian 7.0 installed without any hacks. All are x86_64. Everywhere Wi-fi works “from a box”. Out of true curiosity wanted to ask, wi-fi doesn't work at Debian 6.0 32bit? Also, by the way, my touchpad setting /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf

Yes, i have this device (Asus p52JC) (i3 370M). I use linux about five last years, but my work with this very sad. I have not big problem after installing debian 6.0, but small problems drive me crazy. Some times system after few switching between graphic and text mode (ctrl+alt+Fn) lost monitor, i suppose and i need make hard restart >_< Video card work ONLY with 2D =( If you try install nvidia official driver - you can't run graphic mode. I think this problem exist, because in this laptop two video card. If you do this - remove Xorg.conf and restart X server - should help. When i try use headphone - i get sound from both place: from headphone and from laptop dinamic =)
