I use Fingerprint reader on Ubuntu 11.10 (T410) It runs without a hitch.

For Camera you can use the application cheese

For me, in order to get the wireless to work you just have to type the following commands into the terminal in Ubuntu:

 

$ rfkill list all

$ sudo rmmod -f acer_wmi

$ sudo rfkill unblock all

$ sudo su

# echo "blacklist acer_wmi" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

# exit

 

Thanks,

Sorry it took so long. I missed this message. If you want, go ahead and install Ubuntu, if you haven't already, just remember to save the info or else you will need a wired connection.

 

Thanks,
