Inspiron 14R annoyances on Natty

August 3, 2011

This is a list of annoyances I’ve discovered on the Dell Inspiron 14R running Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal).

  • Switching display options with an external monitor attached results in a black screen with only the mouse cursor visible
  • The buttons above the keyboard do not map properly.
  • Touchpad is very sensitive, which causes accidental palm clicks
  • Turning off bluetooth through the Indicator Applet disconnects both WiFi and bluetooth. Turning it back on, leaves the radio off. You can restore connectivity by using the radio on/off switch on the keyboard (Fn+F2)

Will update as I find more things that bother me.
