Dell Latitude E6230 Wireless Issues...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 7, 2013
I just had to perform a "pilot" install of 12.04.2 LTS on one of our company's new Dell E6230 sub-notebooks. Now remember, these are the ones that you can get Ubuntu pre-installed on also! I suppose that saving a few dollars came into play there because it came with Win7. Remember also that this thing has the funky new UEFI BS going on--so it was a bitch to get it to boot after installing Ubuntu from a USB stick--kept getting "Invalid Partition Error" at boot until I played around for a bit with the UEFI settings. I DID manage to get it to boot.
My problem is getting the WiFi to work consistently. An "lspci" shows this thing to have a Broadcom BCM 43228 (14e4:4359).
I followed this really good guide over at <https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...etween_drivers> and actually got the WiFi to connect to the guest network--but as these instructions are for 11.10 I don't think they cover me.
Anyhow, it was connected so I installed some
Touchpad not working after update to 12.04 (DELL Latitude E5520)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 2, 2012
A couple of days ago, I updated my system from 11.10 to 12.04 LTS. Which, fortunately, solved some X-Session-Crash-Problems. But now I noticed, that I can't use the touchpad anymore.
I'm running Touchpad-Indicator 0.9.1.6 which has the "enable touchpad"-Option disabled. It also does not work when unplugging the USB-mouse like it did running 11.10.
I looked around a little but couldn't find any solution.
Thanks for your help!
Dell Latitude D610 FN+F2 will not enable wireless help!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 14, 2010
I was just recently given a Dell Latitude D610 from someone who didn't want it. It came with Windows XP Pro on it, and I logged in real quick to check things out. Wireless was working as it should and the FN + F2 key combination was enabling/disabling the wireless card as it is supposed to.
Installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 10.04 and wiped the entire disk to use with Ubuntu. Upon setting everything up, I installed ndiswrapper and installed the driver for this laptop's wireless card. I am familiar with ndiswrapper and have used it many times, so I know my workflow with that was correct.
After installing the driver, I couldn't find the device anywhere in network manager. I noticed the WiFi light is not turned on, and thus probably the root of my problem here. I tried pressing FN + F2 (the wireless enable/disable key combo for this model laptop), and I get no response. The light WiFi light does not come on. I've seen on other forums that the light may not come on,

Dell Latitude E6400
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 20, 2010
I currently have a Dell Latitude E6400 specs are as follows:
Processor:2.53GHz dual core
Video: Nvidia Quadro NVS 160m
Wireless: Broadcom 4312
Right now the laptop is equipped with Windows XP Pro,and I wanted to try linux on it. Doing some research it sounds like I would be best suited with either Ubuntu or Suse Linux.
I've tried both live cd's and liked them both alot.
Basically my requirements for a distro are
Hardware support, my laptop is pretty well support by linux so this isn't really an issue. But I do have a need for a smart card reader (the laptop has a built in one and I have a usb powered one) one of the two must work.
Usage: I already use Open office, and from what I understand Microsoft office works through either wine or crossover. I do some media encoding (Ripping dvds to my hard drive then burning fair use copies)
Games: I play a fair amount of Steam platform games (Half life series, Plants vs Zombies, Audio Surf, Portal) Some cons
Ubuntu 12.04 Dell Latitude E6320 Wireless Connectivity Problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 9, 2013
I recently did an update on my E6320 running Ubuntu 12.04 and after a reboot, the wireless no longer connects. It was connecting prior to the update via wireless, so something in the update must have screwed up the network connection.
Wireless attempts to connect to wifi
Wireless connection eventually times out and stops trying to connect
No password is requested because the saved connection has the password - it never re-requests it
Automatic (DHCP) addresses only
DNS Servers: 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124
Require IPv4 addressing for this connection to complete - checked
NOTE: I did these two updates because my wireless was not working when I first got the laptop and this fixed the issue at the time. I have tried turning these both back to Automatic without any luck.
Per other posts from Wild Man, I used the wireless_script that he provided to generate this info as well:

[SOLVED] Ubuntu 10.04 wireless problems Dell latitude d610 Dell mini wlan 1470
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 31, 2010
similar to this problem http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nstall-673571/ i cannot seem to get the wireless card to turn on. ive tried NTDISGTK and Ntdiswrapper to no avail. it recognizes that the hardware is there, but will not turn it on. in terminal i have tried to force start it, but from what i remember, it gives me an error about authentication (might be access not authentication) ill get back here when i boot ubuntu and take some screenshots, at the moment i's running XP and hating it.
Pointer freezes everything on Ubuntu 9.10 DELL Latitude E6510
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 24, 2010
Partitioned Hard Disk I set up Ubuntu 9.10 (10.4 would hang before installation).
Computer works for a few minutes and then freezes (pointer and the rest: Ctrl Back, Ctrl Del, Ctrl f2 do not respond).
The graphics card is Intel® HD Graphics
LED Display (1920 x 1080) (perhaps too much?)
It seems a memory problem: testing memory on windows is ok. On Linux the memory test declare "too small lower memory". No problems with windows (I tried also wubi, independently, but it hangs immediately going blank after upgrading packages). Ubuntu 9.10 works perfectly on my older pc.
Very strange?? unusable, any suggestions? Thank you
Questions about Ubuntu Studio for Dell Latitude D620
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 25, 2013
I am a musician getting ready to do some experimenting with Linux-based music programs. I remember my days of using Anvil Studio and Audacity as well as Virtual Instruments on Windows, and I want to give it a try on Linux. Thing is, I'm not just a musician, I'm involved in other creative pursuits to the extent that Ubuntu Studio might be a possible choice.
Now here's the deal. I know about Audacity and SOME Virtual Instrument products (I can't afford an actual synth keyboard.), and I know Ubuntu Studio has these. But I know absolutely nothing about this JACK program (which I've read doesn't seem to work well on a Dell Latitude D620 laptop, which is what I have). What is JACK, and what's it really for? Do I absolutely have to use it in order to record ANY music at all? Is it involved with the Virtual Instrument programs, or can I just use the Virtual Instruments to hammer out and record ideas and save them for later working in Audacity (the program I'm most familiar with)?
Dell Latitude E6500 + Ubuntu 9.10 => screen freeze
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 11, 2009
I've installed the 9.10 at my laptop, then upgraded it via "Ubuntu Software Center" (GRUB actually says the version was 2.6.31-14, then became 2.6.31-16). All went well, but - the screen got frozen after 5-7 minutes!! In the middle of presentation!!!
Symptoms: the screen looks OK, all the windows are intact, mouse pointer is moving, but no clicks are accepted by the machine. The only way to continue is to power it off.
The machine: dual boot (Windows XP + Ubuntu 9.10), integrated display adapter Intel GMA 4500MHD, was connected to an external projector, external USB mouse has been used.
Also I have to confess - I've chosen System -> Appearance Preferences -> Visual Effects -> Extra, because I liked these "trembling" windows.
There are many possible things to blame - X, display adapter, external screen, USB mouse, some missed drivers, right?
Please give me some direction
