Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

it's not a question. –  Avinash Raj Jan 7 '14 at 16:57
It's a solution for many people to be able to use Ubuntu on their laptops :) I know how to distinguish a solution from a question but the question has been repeated many times with no solution and this is the solution I propose that works 100% perfect. But still thank you for your comment Avinash Raj very helpfull. –  Brask Jan 7 '14 at 17:00
@Brask if your question that you post is not a question it doesn't fit with this site. Read the help center. If you instead post a question and answer it then that works. Guide-only "question" posts are bad here and are better suited for the wiki or a forum site. –  Thomas W. Jan 7 '14 at 17:04
Brask, it's AOK to pose a question, e.g., "How do I avoid overheat & extend laptop battery life?" then post an answer to it... but since it has been asked before askubuntu.com/questions/225631/…, better just to post your answer there. AskUbuntu intends to not only help folks with answers to questions, but also to compile a knowledge base, so that others folks later on will search and find answers without needing to wait for a response. That's why the emphasis on improving older questions, not asking the same question over & over. –  K7AAY Jan 7 '14 at 17:09
Hi Brask, it's alright to ask and answer your own question. Please kindly move the answer to where it belongs. –  jokerdino Jan 7 '14 at 17:31
