comment Fn function on Das Keyboard Model S doesn't work
I believe you can find your answer on this question: askubuntu.com/questions/270416/how-do-fn-keys-work/… From what I can tell from what nutty writes in his answer, the Fn key doesn't have any output since it's exclusively a modifier key.

comment Where can I find a compatible graphics driver for an old unsupported graphics card?
cries so when I go to upgrade to 13.04, how will that effect my current graphics drivers? Do you think I might have problems with my display? I'm a noob when it comes to these things and all I've been able to do is weave through miscellaneous forums and wikis.

also found this thread phoronix.com/forums/… which says I should be the happiest person in the world since my card is so supported...that same person says there were about 20 people like me...

It also says it the driver has accelerated 3d support: 0RS400/RS480 Radeon XPRESS 200(M)/1100 IGP which seems to indicate I should be able to do some level of gaming, eh?

:( I'm currently stuck with this computer. I don't want to play the games on maximum settings, I'd be fine with their minimum settings. There's a clause in that link you gave me: "Getting better 3D support For r300-r500 (Radeon 9500 - X2300) cards, the r300g driver is a newer 3D driver based on Gallium3D. It is the default 3D driver in Ubuntu Natty/11.04 and newer releases. ... Likewise, for r600-r700 cards, the r600g Gallium3D-based driver is available from the xorg-edgers PPA. It is also enabled by default from Ubuntu Natty/11.04 on. " Do you think that could help me?

comment Why am I unable to mount my cd/dvd drives?
omfg, I found the problem and people are going to hate me for it. My laptop has 3 usb ports. 1 is being used for an external usb harddrive where I have my installation of Ubuntu installed. The other two are connected to a single usb hub which uses a 2nd port for extra power. I had the dvd connected to the usb hub. I removed the hub and connected the dvd drive directly to the laptop and it worked. Apparently, despite using 2 usb ports, the hub wasn't able to provide enough power to the drive while allowing me to operate my mouse and keyboard. SORRY!!!
