Support of this touchpad has been added not long ago to linux kernel. That means it is not perfect. First of all try to install mainline kernel 4.1rc5 from Ubuntu mainline kernel ppa. There were a lot of fixes after 3.19. But you may try 3.19 first on 14.04 by running sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-vivid There are a lot more fixes in "next" ...

This is kind of opinionated, since everyone has their own version of Ubuntu that they like. I'd say, though, that you should be perfectly fine; if a computer can run 64 Bit Windows 7, it can run Ubuntu (normal Unity) 14.04 perfectly fine. If it doesn't, then download something like MATE or Lubuntu, which are more lightweight.

I had spent four days trying to install Ubuntu, but was getting the same error. I finally went to the BIOS (F2 just after powering on) before installing Ubuntu, and disabled EFI. And then I went on installing, and I no longer have that error. Now it works like a charm.

Ubuntu requires no additional drivers generally. If you are having dual Graphics Card then supported proprietary drivers are easily available from Additional Drivers application from the menu.

In most cases you do not need any additional drivers to run Ubuntu. You can test how Ubuntu works with your hardware by booting from LiveCD and trying Ubuntu without install. If you have more specific questions, you are welcome to ask. I suggest installing Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for a first-time user. It is more stable and support is for 5 years.

First of all, you do not need to disable "Secure Boot" to install Ubuntu any more. It looks like your computer is with bios, not UEFI, becuase it was natively with Windows 7. You do not need to do anything special to install in dual boot with Windows 8. Just do not forget to shut down Windows properly. It is hibernated by default. So just install Ubuntu ...

Your bluetooth chip is not supported by the kernel yet. Here is the Bug report. You can vote there that the bug affects you too. There is a temporary solution there. But it is too technical for a common user. I sent a few patches upstream to add some of these devices, which have been applied. But in this case also some firmware should be added. I wrote to ...

Only drivers that you would ever need are graphics Drivers. However the FGLRX Drivers are a bit tricky. Considering that this laptop has an Integrated Graphics Card and a Dedicated Graphics Card as well. Both are AMD Make, Which makes it rather interesting. It uses something called Hybrid X-Fire. This is supposed to automatically swtich the GPU from ...

If everything works, then you do not need to install any drivers. The only driver to consider is a video one. You can go to System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers and install a proprietary driver.

Ubuntu Unity 14.04 - 64bit, Intel mobo and i7 processor. After switching sound cards, I had [much better] sound but my sound output choices (System Settings : Sound) disappeared. I needed that to switch to S/PDIF output. After much monkeying around without success, including all of the above suggestions and more, nothing worked. For no particular reason, ...

I had the same problem with my vn7-591G-74QT. Adding Option "ClickPad" "true" Option "EmulateMidButtonTime" "0" to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf solved it. Right click on Synaptic Touchpad not working on Ubuntu 14.10
