LinuxMint4.0 KDE on Gateway MT3705 Notebook

Post by thisismalhotra »

Guys,

Hi All as this is my first post.
I have been using ubuntu for a while and when KDE version of mint came out it picked up my attention. Now I installed it on my notebook model as mentioned above. I know these issue have been hunting me with ubuntu too, and thats why I tried mint thinking they might work in mint but, Lot of things are not working out of the box such as wireless, sound, compiz etc etc.

I think I am missing drivers for chipset, sound, wireless card etc etc... in ubuntu I installed the chipset driver from restricted driver manager, where is one here in mint KDE

Also, lot of enteries in my 'lspci -v' list say <access denied>, I assumed it's a lack of drivers but did not wanted to mess with the installation without some help. Can anybody who has mint working on the same notebook or anybody who knows how to fix these issues help me out here...

Here are my 'lspci -v' enteries.

Thanks again, THE KDE RELEASE LOOKS GREAT

Code: Select all

Not much of a help but you have an ATI chipset. These are relatively new and I've seen others with problems, but I find it hard to find solutions
Your wifi is RTL 8185 which should work with ndiswrapper and the win driver, see the wiki

For the rest, I'm sorry but.....

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
