Installing Kubuntu 10.10 on a ThinkPad X201s

Before the installation

I installed Kubuntu via a X200 UltraBase 200 without a problem.


Just install nothing special

Hardware support

Hardware works driver notes
Video (Intel HD Graphics) yes
Audio (Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio) yes
Network (Intel Corporation 82577LM Gigabit Network Connection) yes
WiFi (Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300) yes
Modem unknown
Fingerprint Reader unknown
Bluetooth yes Mouse is working
APS unknown
UltraNav unknown
Card-Reader yes for SD and MS


To run kubuntu with the ultrabase it's necessary to create the following file:


and insert

xrandr | grep 'HDMI1' | grep " connected "
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
   xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode 1920x1200 --output LVDS1 --off
   xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1440x900 --output HDMI1 --off
