"Tormod Volden recommends Ubuntu Linux on your computer"

I am a keen user of Ubuntu Linux since 4.10 (Warty) and enjoy trying out new versions and helping with debugging. I also contribute with development and documentation work in Ubuntu and upstream projects.

Ubuntu in Central Switzerland


Help and information

I am a SwissTeam contact person for the Luzern region. Please contact me if you would like Ubuntu CDs or information about Ubuntu. Depending on how much time I have, I can also help you out with technical problems.


I am active in the Ubuntu SwissTeam, and I especially try to create some Ubuntu activities in the Luzern area (Switzerland). Please contact me if you are interested in participating.

We in the SwissTeam cooperate as much as we can with local Linux user groups. Please subscribe to the Central Switzerland Linux User Group mailing list to stay informed about Linux and Ubuntu activity in the region.


Wiki pages that I wrote/initiated or I am pretty involved in:


My main focus is hardware support for hardware that I have available. I do debugging and bug triaging, some testing and packaging and a few uploads, especially on graphics drivers and Xorg, for instance:

  • xserver-xorg-video-ati
  • xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd
  • xserver-xorg-video-savage

Other packages I work on are for example:

  • grub
  • laptop-mode-tools
  • linux-wlan-ng
  • xscreensaver

some of which I am maintaining in Debian.
