If you look at my sig you will find that UDEV can be used with a calibration screen with ubuntu on the UX. My understanding is that would recalibrate both an external mouse and internal mouse pointer at the same though?

are you talking about the XsandYs values. I tried changing them but at no luck. Im talking about automatic calibration like an application where you simply click on the sides/up/down on the screens to calibrate.

No I am talking about an auto calibration "window" not you manually changing the numbers. U need UDEV for that.

That said I think the new version of Ubuntu (out real soon) will have better touch screen and dual screen support - just wait a bit for it I guess.

I found the external screen not perfect and that reason alone was why I uninstalled Ubuntu otherwise I was happy with it. It has got to look nice for me to use it. I am hangin out for the next version or sayabon linux (i do not know which yet - but have already cleared all the hard drive space needed.)

I can't speak on the double capacity battery but with continuous usage, and wifi on plus EDGE radio on to receive SMS messages, my new single capacity last all of.... 1hr 20min!

I just won my battle getting the iwl3945 driver under kubuntu Hardy (8.04) working properly :)

From the beginning it only worked with a range of about 2m :(

The solution was to install the package "linux-backports-modules-hardy-generic", creating
the file /etc/modprobe.d/iwl3945 containing

Code: Select all

alias wlan0 iwl3945
options iwl3945 antenna=1

then reboot.

(altering disable_hw_scan option had no effect that I could notice)

I found this by trial and error, and following many helpful hints on different forums
including this one.

guys, how you could install linux at all? Somehow l can't even boot from USB. Not any distro... l just get blank screen after the beginning of the booting.
l use unetbootin to make bootable USB thumb. What am I doing wrong?
