 +===== Notes =====
 +This laptop was tested with Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04 and 11.10.
 +==== Wireless ====
 +Wireless support does work but most current Linux distribution don't support it fully at the moment. You need to install the latest version of the [[http://​linuxwireless.org/​download/​compat-wireless-2.6/​|compat-wireless]] drivers for fully functioning wireless.
 +
 +In Ubuntu 9.10 you should try installing the linux-backports-modules-karmic package before installing the above as this includes updated wireless drivers as well.
 +
 +In Ubuntu 10.04 and 11.1 the wireless worked out of the box.
 +===== Summary =====
 +With older distros the wireless component of the Acer Aspire 5534 is the main obstacle with this laptop. A bit of work should get it working properly and newer Linux distributions seem to have solved this issue.
