12.10 bugs: power meter, brightness
 
So I got my shiny new work Toshiba Portege R830-13C and put Xubuntu
12.04 on it. It occurred to me that it's September, so I dist-upgraded
it to 12.10.

Two problems and a hard-to-find option:

1. Power meter: it crashes, lots. This is a known bug with many
duplicates. (The main bug is marked "private", which is not entirely
helpful given all the duplicates are public.) This is what I get for
running a beta.

2. I can't change the brightness, at all - there's no icon to do so
and, now, the keyboard brightness buttons don't work (they did in
12.04).

3. Somewhere in 12.04 was a setting to switch off the trackpad when
typing. I can't find this option again - it's still on after the
upgrade, but I want to try it disabled again.

Help and ideas with any of these most welcomed.

12.10 bugs: power meter, brightness
 
Hello David,

Could you test a live-cd. Do not install, but just use it with the live session. Tell us if problems occurs?
Have a nice day :)

The trouble is that the most recent Xubuntu CD is alpha 3, so is a bit
old ... is there any way to get a "daily" CD, of whatever the CD would
be as of today?

o/

Suggestion: link this lots of places while it's all in beta! I didn't
know this was there until now ...

That's the daily alternate, which will
not have live CD (and is not even released this cycle for Xubuntu).



The daily desktop ISOs can be found at
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/daily-live/current/

OK, I tried it with a live-USB of today's Quantal Xubuntu. And ... the
power meter doesn't crash, and the brightness buttons work!

Then I booted back into my installation. And ... the power meter
doesn't crash (or hasn't yet), and the brightness buttons work!

That was quick :-)

Spoke too soon - it still crashes, whenever you plug in or take out
the power plug.
