Samsung 300V3A

Hi all!

I just bought a new notebook, the Samsung 300V3A. It has the Intel core i3 and a Nvidia Optimus driver.
Now I want to install LM KDE on it. Does anyone know any issues with this OS on this notebook? Will the graphic drivers be installed automatically by LM?

In advance, thanks.

My friend which I mentioned in the Debian guide now have a working volume control and the keyboard shortcuts work perfectly for adjusting the sound level again, which again made Skype fully functional!
This is just great!
Thanks again for your great and easy to use guide.:)

Yes, you understood me correctly, it is in fact an Ubuntu VS Debian issue, sorry for my bad English. Yes, she is using the Gnome Alsa Mixer to adjust the level, but I was hoping someone...

Re: Gnome 3

It isn't the way forward for the linux desktop - it will turn any potential new convert who has used windows (99.99% of the planet) off because it's too different. Yet, more and more Windows users are changing to Mac. I think a fancy look will attract a lot of people and eventually convert them. Bu...

Dell support does not provide a Linux based driver, so my question is; Are there any other ways to make the printer compatible with LM 10? In advance, t...

Re: Gnome 3

I'm quite positive regarding Gnome 3.0
I mean to be able to compete with Windows or OsX, Linux need to have something that's uniqe. Gnome as of now is getting quite Old-skool. Things must move forward, that's just the way it is.

First, when I move the mouse cursor down to the taskbar, and there is a preview of the window I wish to open, it sort of freezes for a while. Same thing happens when I alt + tab to change window. It can freeze f...

Hi all. I'm just wondering if anyone have tried KDE on Acer Aspire One? Right now I'm running the LM 10 Gnome. And I think is fantastic, but I just tried the KDE version trough a USB.
