I didn't find anything about the cams either.

Mmmm if you want to see if some key is recognized by the system you
can try it with xev. To do so first you need to kill devilspie (the
program that makes all the windows maximized all the time:
Exit that terminal that is still maximized and then in another one just write
So when you press a key you should see some feedback. If you don't,
see in dmesg. With this I found out that the four arrow keys from the
right side are: F1, F9, F3 and F10 or something like that, and then
going to gconf-editor - apps - metacity - global keybinding and
keybinding command. There I put xkill, the ALT F2 Run box and
installed tilda to have a terminal always at hand
interesant butto is UDF (you can find it lifet VOL-). UDF is F11 so in
programs like firefox, gnome-terminal, xournal it is for FullScreen
And also the Shutter button is for F5 (refresh)
> 2a) tried to find a media player, but none installed by default. Am I wrong?
No, I didn't find anything... But you can try elisa
sudo aptitude install elisa

Mmmm maybe you first need to update your sources list.
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop

If you install another desktops in Ubuntu then you can choose them at
the GDM Start Screen.

Maybe you don't have the codecs:
sudo aptitude install ubuntu-restricted-extras
That will install all the programs that everyboy needs but for legal
reasons can come with the installation: flash, java, mp3, divx, rar,
