Feedback on the Lenovo Thinkpad T420

Asked by Noorul Ameen on 2011-10-30

I am able to install ubuntu 11.04 lenovo T420 32-bit image successfully. So far all driver works fine without any issue.

But I have a problem on update/upgrade of packages. Even I am not able to install "Adobe Flash" plugin for firefox.
"Ubuntu Software Centre" keeps on searching and never ends.

How can I install/update/upgrade the packages?

Thanks.

in the program "software sources"
check the box "software restricted by copyright or legal issues (multiverse)"
then you should be able to find it in the app-store

personally I use google-chrome as my web-browser
they package their own version of flash and are therefore more up-to-date with flash and upgrades than ubuntus flash.

http://www.google.com/chrome - do download it

I installed ubuntu image from http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/hardware/201102-7230:201102-7315.

I couldn't find "software sources" option to configure under "Ubuntu Software One".

Also, I tried to install chrome browser from http://www.google.com/chrome deb package and got the following error.

Hi,

Doing the following command solved all the installation/update problem.

sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
sudo apt-get update

Thanks,
