I got a F201e with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS preinstalled. I installed 12.10 but I can't get the ethernet and some of the function keys to work (e.g. adjust screen brightness)

The Asus website does not provide any drivers for ubuntu. Where/How could I find those?

I found some answers at http://bach-online.de/2012/12/27/ubuntu-12-10-on-the-asus-f201e-x201e/

Minor tweaks necessary For a few issues, some tweaks were necessary to fix them.

Brightness keys After the installation, the keys for the brightness were not working. This could be fixed by editing the /etc/default/grub file and changing the line "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=". After running "sudo update-grub" in the terminal and rebooting, the keys were working again.

Network card not working Besides, the ethernet controller was not recognized and did not work, while Wifi was functioning just fine. This could be fixed my installing the package linux-backports-modules-cw-3.6-quantal-generic. This package will install several other packages (depending on the current kernel used) and after running "modprobe alx" in the terminal as super user, the ethernet card was working also.
