I got a Dell Inspiron 1120 which ships with Ubuntu Light, as well as Windows. My wife prefers Ubuntu, but obviously outside of web stuff, you can't do a lot with Light, so I went ahead and installed the Desktop version of Ubuntu (10.10 / maverick).
Whereas before it suspended beautifully and connected to wifi networks flawlessly, it now displays the following problems:
- It seems to suspend ok, but on resume, the screen remains blank, even though the computer appears to wake up again.
- Wifi doesn't connect.
I tried using the suggested proprietary drivers, and those don't seem to change the situation.
All in all, a bit frustrating to run into these sorts of "regressions" - does anyone know what sort of drivers and such Ubuntu Light might have shipped with for this computer that made it work so well? Unfortunately, I wiped the disk in order to install the Desktop version of Ubuntu.
