I am looking for a list of drivers for my samsung model mentioned in the title. For specs please visit the website. The laptop came with a version of free-dos installed. I overwrote that one with windows 7 entirely. The laptop also had shipped with it a software cd which had some driver software.

Below are the list of software; I want to know the list of equivalent software I can get for ubuntu from the repo. Would want the list for Ubuntu 12.04

Chipset driver
Intel ME Interface Driver
Intel Rapid Storate Technology
Graphics Driver
NVidia graphics driver
sound driver
Lan driver
wireless lan driver
bluetooth driver
touchpad driver

Ps: don't forget to check the website for the specs

Ubuntu has almost all generic drivers. So everything should work out of box.

However, you can open dash, search for additional drivers. This will install nvidia driver.

The spec doesn't specify wireless card. You may need to install that driver.

Best way is to create a cd or live usb and run ubuntu in live mode. So that you can see whether everything works fine or not. If anything doesn't work. Post a question here.
