I installed Ubuntu 13.04 on my HP dm3t-3000 by first booting it live using a USB thumb drive. Once I had satisfied myself that I could access my 802.11x WiFi access point, listen to music via OGG and MP3 formats, open documents from a mounted SD card, use both the trackpad and a USB mouse, and backlight the keyboard, I selected the “install” icon on the desktop. The install went normally, and when the machine rebooted out of the install, all worked as before. The only thing that has not worked for me is the brightness control via the machine's F2 - F3 buttons. That I will have to play with. As I write this, I am about to upgrade this machine to Ubuntu 14.04 Beta 2. I tried running Lubuntu 14.04 Beta 1 live, and it seemed to perform normally as well. I will add comments once the OS upgrade has completed.
