I recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my HP Envy m7-j020dx. The only problem I am currently having is that the internal SD card reader does not seem to be detected at all. I have tried to find a solution using Google, but there was little to find on how to solve this problem, and the solutions I've tried did not work. There is no external problem because everything works fine in Windows 8.
Fun fact: SD card is detected on the 14.04 Live CD, but not otherwise.
With and without the SD card in,
df -h gives me the following result:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda5 154G 35G 112G 24% / none 4,0K 0 4,0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup udev 3,9G 4,0K 3,9G 1% /dev tmpfs 792M 1,4M 791M 1% /run none 5,0M 0 5,0M 0% /run/lock none 3,9G 28M 3,9G 1% /run/shm none 100M 32K 100M 1% /run/user /dev/sda2 256M 102M 155M 40% /boot/efi /home/ramzes/.Private 154G 35G 112G 24% /home/ramzes
What didn't work:
- Rebooting with the SD card in the reader
sudo modprobe rts5139
sudo modprobe rts5229(FATAL: Module not found)
- this which left me fixing my partition types for the next 4 hours
- anything front page google discussing this topic
