comment 15.10 Dell Vostro 3700 display brightness fn+key change problem
@mikewhatever, yes, sorry. So, I have had (and have specified) nouveau video driver and nothing helped. Now everything works after apt-get install nvidia-current driver. With "clean" /etc/default/grub. With xorg.conf you've pointed me. THANK YOU.

comment 15.10 Dell Vostro 3700 display brightness fn+key change problem
@mikewhatever, I have no xorg.conf, just /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ with files, no one of which contains Device section. Shall I create new file? Where can I read about its content?

@mikewhatever, *_brightness values in /sys/class/backlight/nv_backlight do not reflect my pressings (the are always the same).

comment 15.10 Dell Vostro 3700 display brightness fn+key change problem
@mikewhatever, yes, there is nv_backlight, too. And yes, I did a check with acpi_brightness=vendor, it didn't make any difference. Yes, my Vostro has GeForce GT 330M, but I am not sure which driver does it use. Thank you.

comment alt+shift can't be set to toggle language
It doesn't work for me either. Tweak Tool shows my choice (CapsLock), but switching doesn't work.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 does not want boot if external keyboard attached to USB 3
@Oyibo everything you've suggested (boot order?) is already ok here. Can not boot with mouse plugged, anyway. Well, the grub and then initrd seemed to be loaded, thought; next boot there boot menu appears (because of recordfail=1 i do believe).

My Dell Vostro 3700 does not boot if USB 2.0 mouse is attached. I've installed Ubuntu (12.04; the same thing with 11.xx) from CD disk.

comment changed /etc permission in oneiric (ubuntu11.10) by using “sudo chmod 665 /etc” cant use sudo now
Try liveCD. Anyway, to run sudo you need to chmod 440 /etc/sudoers.

Have you tried to turn off the tuochpad? Did it make any difference?
