Just checked out Ubuntu 11.04 (64bit) using an USB stick-booted live image on Amilo Sa 3650. I was happy to encounter that most functionality works out-of-the-box as stated in the article.

One thing, however, that does not seem to work is bluetooth! I can turn on bluetooth and
“sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth status”
tells me
“bluetooth is running”.

But when I open “Bluetooth Preferences” there's still this huge “Turn On Bluetooth” button which I can click but nothing seems to change…

Anybody got any experience with bluetooth on Amilo Sa 3650 with Ubuntu 11.04?
Any pointers would be highly appreciated :)

I've tried configuring the graphics booster on Debian, Ubuntu and OpenSuSE without any luck. This is still not supported.
