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).

Solution:
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.

Solution:
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.

Solution:
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
