Managed to get Ubuntu onto the G570 and have it dual booting with Windows 7.
Going from the Live CD the installation initially kept falling over until I had an ethernet connection to the internet plugged in.
Testing various keys my function keys 1-5 appear to work however the Fn F6 (Disable touchpad) doesnt do anything.
Anybody got any experience of this or enabling/ programming the other Fn keys in Linux?

I confirm on g470 ,
I tested using xev , moost keys seems to work but not Fn+F5
while Fn+F4 shows :
KeyRelease event, serial 35, synthetic NO, window 0x2e00001,
root 0xb0, subw 0x0, time 26891886, (333,231), root335,321),
state 0x0, keycode 246 (keysym 0x1008ff95, XF86WLAN), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False
