Summary

Actually, this tablet isn't well supported by distributions, but may become so.
I tried it with ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 livecd.
ubuntu 12.10 (daily built, 2012-06-14): startup stuck on a persistent modprobe error
ubunutu 12.04: works well, after little change:

edit /etc/default/grub

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”poulsbo.blacklist=yes console=tty1 sdhci.debug_quirks=4″

I installled Lubuntu on the tablet and everything seems to be working except the HDMI out and the screen rotation. I also cant seem to play MP4's on it.

I just install Debian 7 on my latitude st but is not detecting the wlan (atheros AR6003). I also install an other wifi card on the other pic port an Broadcom BMC943224 which do works on my Dell vostro laptop with debian 7.

I also install debian testing but I still have the same problem is not detecting the wifi.

Can someone help me?

Trying to install xubuntu 13.04 but having trouble with setup, ie. no keyboard. tried going from live using the setup in order to use accessibility option of onscreen keybd but cannot get it to display.
any ideas?

PS. only one usb port so it is in use by the live usb stick.

thanks in advance.

I worked to make Ubuntu run on my latitude ST but it was very unstable (I think because of Unity that needs to much resources). I decided to try to install Lubuntu and It works really pretty good. I can not use rotation but everything else is working (wifi, sound, usb, Bluetooth) and also graphic acceleration is not working. I use it now everyday for mails, internet and watching DivX and I’m really glad because it is much more usable than with Windows Seven. I can work 5 hours before charging again. The Gimp works quite good also with images. I use chromium with chromeTouch extension. I can hear music with my Bluetooth headset. I installed also Cairo Dock and it makes my tablet very useful now. Enjoy

Loaded Xubuntu 13.04. You have to run the commands on Sebastian Mogilowskis blog to fix the Atheros card. The system runs very fast and makes what was an unusable tablet usable.

Were you able to get rotation working Tim?

Rear facing webcam functions and tested using Cheese Webcam Booth

Ubuntu 13.04 works in it, however there is a problem with hardware acceleration (as in none). Makes it seem a lot slower and sluggish then it actually is.
