Fixes for common issues on Linux Mint 12...

System: Dell Studio XPS 16 - 1647
OS: Linux Mint 12 - Lisa 64-bit

Problem 1:
Broadcom BCM43224 (0596) Wifi card not working out of box (bug #873511).

Install driver from Jockey and then edit config file
    $ sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
to blacklist the drivers (for my case I need to blacklist both bcma and brcmsmac) by adding the text below at the end of the file
    blacklist bcma
    blacklist brcmsmac
and then reboot.

Problem 2:
Unable to pair devices, send, receive and browse files via bluetooth.

System update fixed pair devices issue, however sending file only works one way (PC to device). Browsing files in device is still not working (bug #879923).

Problem 3:
No sound from headphone jack.

An old issue since Julia.

Worth to highlight:
  • ATI proprietary driver ver 11.12 performance still sluggish on GNOME 3
  • A nice shell extensions from ppa:webupd8team/gnome3
    • gnome-shell-extensions-pidgin
    • gnome-shell-extensions-workspace-indicator
  • AWN works great on GNOME 3
