This page describes issues and solutions for getting Ubuntu 9.04 working on a T61p.

Hardware

Works Out of the Box

  • Wireless (Intel 3945ABG or 4965AGN)
  • Touchpoint
  • Trackpad
    • Trackpad scrolling
  • Sound card
    • Volume up/down/mute buttons
    • Audio out
  • FN keys
    • numlock
    • Lock computer
    • Battery information
    • Screen brightness control
    • Thinklight control
    • sleep
    • WLAN/BT on/off toggle
    • Media player control
  • Wired LAN
  • ultranav scrolling
  • Optical drive
  • SD/MMC Memory card reader
  • ACPI
    • Battery status, power graphs, and history
    • Lid open/close
    • Suspend to RAM (with lvm encryption, but this shouldn't matter)

Needs Tweaks

  • Video
    • Nvidia drivers can be loaded by either:
      • Enabling the restricted repository and running $ sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-180
      • Installing the envyng-core package and running $ envyng -t
  • Sound In:
    • Must be unmuted in Volume Control (Click on volume tray icon, click on Volume Control, select Capture: HDA Intel - AD198x)
    • Internal mic is very quiet relative to line in, so you may have to turn it above 100% using the Manager utility from the padevchooser package.
  • ThinkFinger
 Append following line to '/etc/apt/sources.list':
 deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jon-oberheide/ubuntu jaunty main
 Execute:
 sudo apt-get install thinkfinger-tools libpam-thinkfinger libthinkfinger0
 Restart
 Execute:
 tf-tool --acquire && tf-tool --verify
  • Card Reader
Append the following to '/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf':

  # Seems the ricoh_mmc driver screws up the internal card reader so we'll blacklist it until it's fixed
  blacklist ricoh_mmc
 

Doesn't Work

  • ACPI
    • Suspend to Disk (tested with LVM encryption): Successfully unlocks encrypted volume and starts "waking up stage." Video then becomes corrupted and computer locks up.

Untested

  • fingerprint reader

Other Issues

Compared to 8.10

Improvements

Bugs and Regressions

  • Restricted Driver panel does not immediately suggest the installation of the Nvidia binary driver as it did in previous releases. See fixes in Tweaks section.
  • Card Reader doesn't work with latest Jaunty kernels. Fix mentioned above in Tweaks section
