Notes


CategoryLaptop

  1. Use 'gksudo displayconfig-gtk' (1)

  2. Use 'NVIDIA X Server Settings' (2)

  3. Tested with Nokia 6131, no modem test was performed, just sending the files and viewing the phone directory (3)

  4. Microsoft Wireless 5000 Laser, standard search/pair procedure was required (4)

  5. It works using fprint but it is still buggy, so I switched fprint off (5)

  6. Tried with SD 1Gb card. The same card via external USB-cardreader works OK (6)

  7. SD/SDHC cards only tested (7)
