As of 2010-05-04 the following problems exist with the T510 under Linux:

As of 2 October 2010, with updated BIOS and all patches available for Ubuntu 10.04, the installation goes well. Problems noted are few:

  • Brighness is still an issue as listed above, but the fix does work.
  • USB 3.0 drivers are "iffy" in that some things work very well (external hard drives, for example) but others (external SB adpaters) cause low bandwith warnings in the kernel log, and won't work correctly (where they do on other systems).
  • The Touchpad does not always ignore input while typing.
  • If using the proprietary Nvidia driver (NVIDIA Driver Version 260.19.06) one has to set "Discrete" in BIOS. Linux seems to have some problems with Switchable Graphics (Optimus).
