[1] I've tested with my Core i3-380M with integrated graphics.

[2] 2012-06-06: I had to compile libfprint0 by myself from here: git:/ / anongit.freedesktop.org/libfprint/libfprint and apply this patch first: git clone https://github.com/andree182/vfs301.git

[3] Activate extra button for toggle touchpad on/off: http://wiki.daviddarts.com/Ubuntu_Lucid_on_the_Asus_UL30VT#Touchpad

I use Linux Mint 12 and everything works for me as expected.
