I have an X220 tablet.  Everything works out of the box (Ubuntu 12.04
LTS) except:

  (a) the GPS in the 3G WWAN
  (b) Fingerprint reader
  (c) Tablet screen hardware keys not mapped
  (d) confusion between the two battery capacities
  (e) occasionally the webcam jumps between 4:3 and 16:9

What issues are /you/ seeing?  (Forgive me if you mentioned these
before, but I could not see them).

Would it be worth trying an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS live-cd and to try and
work out if it is a hardware, or a software fault?
