==== Touchpad ====
This is not a synaptics touchpad, so the nice utilities for configuring those don't work. So far I haven't been able to disable the bit too sensitive tap-to-click feature or turn this completely off. Will post here if I find a solution.

Current Issues

  • strange (ticktack) noises from the harddrive (see [#harddisk notes])(I did not have this problem on Gutsy or Hardy - ["Hirvinen"])

System Info

ClaasTeichmann:

Dell Inc. Latitude D430 System-Version not Specified


  • Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU U7600 @ 1.20GHz
  • Display: 1280x800

I installed Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) using the alternate-CD


["Hirvinen"]:

Dell Inc. Latitude D430 System-Version not Specified


  • Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU U7600 @ 1.20GHz
  • Display: 1280x800

I installed Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) using [http://lubi.sourceforge.net/unetbootin.html UNetbootin], since I did not have an optical drive. This worked fine for me, but note that this is an unsupported method. At least back up your data. See ["Installation"]. I then upgraded to Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron).

Notes

Anchor(resolution)

Resolution

  • After the installation the resolution seems to be correct although System/Preferences/Screen Resolution shows 1200x1024 instead of 1280x800. This can be corrected via displayconfig-gtk

Anchor(harddrive)

Harddrive

Anchor(screen)

Screen

As of 2008-01-16 guidance-power-manager-kde crashes on startup, apparently because it doesn't get brightness control information. Previously it worked, as did automatic brightness control through it.

Anchor(touchpad)

Touchpad

This is not a synaptics touchpad, so the nice utilities for configuring those don't work. So far I haven't been able to disable the bit too sensitive tap-to-click feature or turn this completely off. Will post here if I find a solution.

Anchor(bluetooth)

Bluetooth

According to Dell's driver downloads page D430 has a Dell 360 bluetooth module. I got it to work by installing the newest driver from Dell's support page. (workaround discovered thanks to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=572335 )

Anchor(hardwarevolume)

Volume controls

  • Fn + End, which toggles mute, works
  • Fn + Page Up, which should be volume up, sets the volume at 12 %
  • Fn + Page Dn, which should be volume down, sets the volume at 0 %
