This article describes the installation of Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit) on a Thinkpad T410 type 2522-30G (with Intel Integrated Graphics 5700MHD).

Hardware Support Details

Works out-of-the-box

  • Ethernet
  • Audio
  • DVD burner
  • card reader, tested with 8 GB SD card
  • webcam
  • WLAN
  • 4 GB memory & 64 bit system

Works with additional configuration

  • Microphone is by default set to zero, needs correction & works fine

      • The I/O scheduler default in Karmic is CFG. This seems to be the cause for frequent system lag here. The anticipatory scheduler has proven to give a more responsive ##system under high I/O load:
        • # apt-get install sysfsutils
        • add to /etc/sysfs.conf: sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler = anticipatory
    1. anti Theft
    2. security chip

Does not work

      • Suspend/Resume: There seems to be a bug in the BIOS which prevents the second resume causing a reboot (which will hang at the ThinkPad splash screen). Aparently Lenovo is ##working on it and a new BIOS will be released by end of April 2010 (
      • USB does not work after suspend/resume (Probably related to the other suspend/resume bug)


The remaining devices are currently not tested.
