Problems with Installation fixed

After installing both Ubuntu Gutsy amd64 then trying Kubuntu amd64 Gutsy on
my Acer Aspire 7520-5115

And having no success with getting the Nvidia interface to work properly, I
have solved the problem.

Acer Specs :

AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology TL-58 / 1.6 GHz
Display 17" TFT active matrix
1440 x 900 ( WXGA+ )
24-bit (16.7 million colors) 24-bit CrystalBrite

NVIDIA GeForce 7000M / nForce 610M
NVIDIA GeForce Go 7000M  256MB

Solution: Installed Paldo Linux - It installed flawless and I get 1440x900
resolution. The best I got with Ubuntu was 640x480 and it looked terrible.

Unfortunately  I still cannot get the integrated camera or wireless to work.
I guess Linux in general is just not able to deal with these drivers yet.

Camera Acer Orbi-cam (m560x driver),
Wireless Atheros 5006/7 Wifi Card

AT LEAST I can See with extreme clarity and detail my 17" LCD. And can work
in the Linux environment instead of Microstuffed.

I did try everything I could find to get the Nvidia interface to work in
Ubuntu but it just does not work well enough to take advantage of the higher

I would like someday to return to Ubuntu I think it is wonderful, but not
quite ready for todays less expensive laptops.
