As of 2012-02-16 installing Ubuntu 11.10 with GNOME3 / GNOMEshell everything tested works with 4384-WCW (intel graphics) volume up/down/mute keys functions correctly with OSD correctly displaying. brightness controls activate osd and work the brightness thinklight works although no osd shows microphone input mute may not be responding touch-point/nipple and middle button scrolling with nipple works in apps (chrome browser for instance) lock function key locks desktop battery function key brings up power statistics wireless function key toggles wifi camera/headset button doesnt seem to do anything (no camera installed in model) magnifier (fn+space) doesnt bring up magnifier play, pause, next/prev do not start media player or control VLC
gigabit ethernet, wifi work fine bluetooth not fitted to model modem not tested solid state media slot not tested mini-pcie not tested displayport not tested vga port not tested usb ports, including usb3 port work well
As of 2010-05-04 the following problems exist with the T510 under Linux:
- No support for display brightness controls when using binary video driver
- To enable brightness control in X, append 'Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1"' to the Device-Section of xorg.conf, orginal source: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=2204839#post2204839. This may result in a high-pitched whine after lowering the brightness within X. Also, brightness is not lowered and raised in the same increments (on Archlinux).
- System can only resume from suspend once - acpi related kernel crash occurs on resume (but system continues to operate), next resume shows BIOS screen and hangs - https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15407
- This can be resolved by updating the BIOS to a revision later than 1.18-1.10 . http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-74267
- Suspend to RAM and Hibernate( suspend to disk ) works very well under Fedora 13 BETA (kernel 2.6.33), using both the proprietary Nvidia driver and the open source Nouveau driver.
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).
