Recently I got a Lenovo T400 but it came with Windows Vista installed (default). Being terribly slow and unstable, I decided to give Fedora 12 a chance. It works, but there are a few issues I just don't seem to be able to solve. I've tried google, but alas... no results.
Oh, I'm just a simple user and rather new with Fedora (I just wanna get rid of the slow Windows). Not very experienced with commands in the terminal and such. Just that you know it when I don't get it
Anyway, at the moment I've got the next few issues:
1) Function Keys
The keyboard has got a blue function key, with which you can enable/disable VGA output, WiFi/Bluetooth, etc. Most of those keys work just fine, except for the key (F8 key) which enables/disables the touchpad or that red dot representing a mouse :P.
Anyone knows whether this is because it is not supported by Fedora 12 (yet) or must something be configured properly before it works?
2) K9Copy can't recognize CDROM drive
I want to create backups of my precious DVD movies and the best option was to use K9Copy (it seems there are no other decent apps for Fedora, as I could not find any). Problem is that K9Copy fails to recognize the DVD drive. I tried mounting the DVD drive from the terminal and that works fine. But even still after mounting it, I can not make K9Copy see the DVD drive. Perhaps it is due to my inexperience with Fedora and something has to be configured, but maybe it is just that the T400 is not completely supported by F12. So, anyone got any suggestions?
3) Wine can't handle hardware of laptop
... or so it seems. When installing apps like Winamp it runs but fails to play any MP3 files as it can not find any sound device. Seems F12 does not support the T400 fully yet. Other applications that normally run on windows are not able to find the sound device in Wine as well, so it's not just Winamp
So who knows that very wanted answer that solves this issue?
Alright, guess that's enough issues for now :P. Hope I provided enough information, if not then just let me know
