I recently got the newest member of the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Family NP900X3G and I'm having the same issues that have been reported for the previous models but none of the fixes worked for me. Especially annoying is the keyboard backlight as it drains my battery.

I tried the following instructions but it didn't change anything. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SamsungSeries9

and this is apperantley only for 13.10 Keyboard backlight function keys for Samsung Series 9 np900x3d and Ubuntu 13.10

as there is no hwdb.d in 12.04

I also would like to activate pinch zoom on my multitouch pad but couldn't get it to work. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help!

My tip would be to upgrade to 13.10 so you get the latest support for new computers. LTS release has always been a problem with new computers for me. –  Alvar Feb 19 '14 at 18:36
