Hello, ok i got a ssd and decided to install mint lxde on with my samsung N150 plus, i was running Lubuntu 11.04 on normal hard.
With Lubuntu i had samsung-tools samsung-backlight plus the samsung specific kernel installed and all worked great.
After much SSD install research i install Mint lxde on SSD drive, this drive has a usb connection so used livecd to install it on drive using Virtualbox on my desktop, i did get one error at end of install about some apps not being reinstalled?
After changing grub.cfg to boot from correct partiton i installed SSD and all booted fine, did updates and installed samsung related software and kernel.
Problem is i cannot see the samsung-tools menu entry and backlight still does not work, both of which did in lubuntu 11.04!
