Everything is working fine – not out of the box though. I just noticed that the comment system screwed something up. The Inspiron comes with a x screen by default, but it will set your screen to x and won’t give you the option to change it under screen resolution. Suspend works, but doesn’t seem good to battery. Might work for other models too, with minor adaptations.

Instead I had to create a new xorg. Use the ipw module, or b43legacy module.

I installed WICD from apt-get. Just spent the past four hours getting Worked perfectly for me. Everything else appears to work fine without intervention sound, synaptic drivers for touch pad, brightness keys.

I had to download the bfwcutter package manually from launchpad. February 3rd, 9.

The Latitude I have is about 4 years old. Summary Make Model Installs? When I installed Ubuntu I did not get to test much else as the display would not work correctly. Dell D should have no problem with Ubuntu, D6000, etc. I guess I’ll try a fresh install, and see if I have better luck this time.

Also, the best I can get is xbut the computer’s supposed to go up to x Demo version of wifeless driver seems to work. The suspended session seems to get lost.
