Hello Ubuntu 12.10!!


Upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10 on Samsung Ultrabook Series 5. Can’t make my touchpad work… still fixing huhuhu

Update: I was able to make it work by doing these:

$ cd /usr/src/
$ sudo wget http://planet76.com/drivers/elantech/psmouse-elantech-v6.tar.bz2
$ sudo tar jxvf psmouse-elantech-v6.tar.bz2
$ sudo dkms add -m psmouse -v elantech-v6
$ sudo dkms build -m psmouse -v elantech-v6
$ sudo dkms install -m psmouse -v elantech-v6

My touchpad works after that. I followed the instructions from here but after updating the kernel to 3.6 and rebooting, my webcam and wireless doesnt work. So I load up the previous 3.5 kernel.

You will notice that on the system settings, the “touchpad” is grayed out. You have to install:

$ sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core

… then multi-touch and touchpad settings will be back and working.

Ubuntu 12.04 missing system hibernate?

I upgraded my Lenovo 3000 V200 Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04 just recently. And I noticed that my favorite “hibernate” is missing.  So… I read and modified the kernel sources.. recompiled…… JUST KIDDING!!!   I actually googled and found this thread (http://askubuntu.com/questions/94754/how-to-modify-policykit-to-allow-hibernation-in-upower) and it works!!

Just create or modify this file using your favorite file editor (vim works for me!)


And put…

[Re-enable hibernate by default]

A restart (power cycle) to apply the changes and then wooolaaa!!! “hibernate” is back!!
