Ubuntu on Lenovo laptop/tablet X220t hacks
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 7, 2013
<p>Hello fellow Linuxians,
Back in November I installed Ubuntu side-by-side with Windows 7 on my Lenovo X-220t. I has uploaded Grub and Ubuntu seamlessly. However, I cannot make a few cool aspects of my Laptop to work, as examples:
1. Scrolling with finger on the screen (the screen does respond to tapping/clicking, however),
2. The fingerprint reader does not work
3. The screen rotate button while on tablet form, does not work.
I would greatly appreciate if you fellow Newbies or pros out there could help.

[SOLVED] UNetbootin installs failing on Lenovo Ideacentre Q180
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 17, 2012
I have a freshly unboxed Lenovo Ideacentre Q180, it ships with FreeDos so I'm trying to install Linux (XBMCbuntu ideally, but any distro will do for now).
I have used UNetbootin to make a bootable USB pen (I've tried it with isos of various distros, including a 32-bit Win7 iso) but when I boot from USB the machine goes straight from BIOS to hanging with a blinking cursor on an otherwise blank screen, or with occasional flashes of a mouse pointer, depending on the iso used.
I've installed Linux from a USB pen dozens of times with various distros on to various hardware.
The machine I'm using is easily capable of running linux:
- Intel Atom D2700 2.13GHz Processor
- 4GB RAM
- 500GB HDD
- AMD Radeon 6450 Video card
- No optical drive
Looking at the BIOS settings, nothing seems clearly wrong, I've tried various boot order settings, and hitting F12 on boot allows me to choose my USB key specifically. The SATA HDD section only has the options of 'IDE Mode' or 'Disabled
Best distro for an old Thinkpad T60 Lenovo
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 12, 2012
I have an old Thinkpad Lenova T60 that a friend of mine wants me to install linux on for her 15 year old daughter. Her daughter will be doing mostly shocial networking stuff like twitter, facebook, skype etc... I know I can install Pidgin to cover most of her social networking needs. Does Pidgin do Twitter?
What distro would you recomend I install on this laptop that is right for a linux newbie who needs something simple, fast and easy to use (hopefully highly configurable as well.
Immediately I thought of Puppy Linux but I'm sure there are others that I may not be aware of that would work well with the T60. Looking forward to your recomendations!!

1) should i install 64bit version (pros and cons)?

Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit on Lenovo B570
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 27, 2011
I have a problem installing Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit from CD on my (new) Lenovo B570 laptop
I've set up the BIOS to boot from CD but on startup the CD sounds like it spins up but then nothing happens, screen remains blank or in some instances it has a partially corrupted blank screen
The laptop came pre-installed with Win 7 and lenovo have a 'feature' one stop recovery which I think has a backup of the Win system on a separate partition, possibly this is causing a problem
I have also tried installing Ubuntu form a USB stick with the same 64 bit .iso but same thing happens
Not sure how to progress with fixing the problem as I can't even get to a cmd prompt
Linux on Lenovo Thinkpad T400
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 14, 2011
I am beginning this thread to chronicle my experiences on using Linux on Lenovo Thinkpad T400. This is a very good and reliable laptop, and I am happy purchasing this laptop for my daily use. Without any computing load, the laptop runs cool at 35-39 deg C---much cooler than my previous laptops! I'd love to invite other Thinkpad owners to participate on related topics.
Description of my system:
* Intel Core2 duo 2.26 GHz
* 2 GB DDR3 RAM
* Hybrid ATI/Intel graphics
* Intel Wireless 5100 AGN
I am always using 64-bit OS on this laptop for work-related reasons (building for 64-bit environment). I disabled the ATI card from BIOS and only used the Intel. Here is the relevant lspci output:

Mystery Case Files by Big Fish Games is there a free software alternative?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 2, 2009
My girlfriend loves the Mystery Case Files series of games by Big Fish Games. (I confess they are fun.) Are there any free software or open source alternatives? Are there even any hidden object type games for Linux? I've been searching for a couple of days now and haven't found anything promising yet.
I'll also welcome any recommendations for moderately easy puzzle games, if you know some.
