Ubuntu 14.04 image for t440s

2015-04-21, 20:21 PM



I've encountered some problems with the standard image of Ubuntu 14.04, installing this on my t440s machine.

I've read on the Ubuntu site that there is a possibility to get the t440s with pre-installed ubuntu, where everything should work.


The problems I've seen so far is unstable WiFi and unability to use bluetooth headsets with high definition audio.


Is there some way to get a hold of the installation image you use to install on the machines before shipping them?

I would really love this, and so would a lot of other people in different forums that have got the same problems as I do.


The alternative would be to get some kind of an installation script that would install the correct software and drivers to get the system up and running correctly.


Thank you.


Best regards,

Might be a regional availability thing.

The wifi thing is probably the same issue everyone's been experiencing with a 7260AC adapter on a 802.11n network. Intel's been real quiet about this, which suggests they have no real solution.

Not sure about the Bluetooth; you might need to grab the appropriate package for handling HD audio over BT. (Ask on the Ubuntu forums?)
