Review of Linux Compatibility

The Wortmann Terra Mobile 1450 II is an Ultrabook, which can be used with Ubuntu 12.10. At least a Linux kernel of version 3.6.10 should be used.

The hardware is automatically supported by Linux, except for the touchpad, which needs additional configuration. Some Linux users encounter freezing of the System from time to time (see Bug-Report). The root cause of those freezes was not identified yet and prevents productive work with this Ultrabook.

Touchpad

Grub has to be adapted in order to use the touchpad. In the file “/etc/default/grub” the entry

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

has to be adapted to

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i8042.noloop"

Afterwards, the following command has to be executed in order to let grub take this change into account:

sudo update-grub

Ethernet

The Ethernet connection

works automatically due to the support of the r8169 kernel module

WiFi

The WiFi chipset bases on the Intel Centrino 2230
