I just had to add acpiphp to /etc/modules[1] in order to get a Delock
61771 Express Card Compact Flash reader[2] to work under Xubuntu 13.04
on a Thinkpad X220 (same procedure on a Thinkpad X200). I can't remember
if I rebooted.=20

It works fine from what I can tell, except I have to actually insert a
CF card before it shows anything (took me a while to figure out) and I
have to insert it when the computer is on =E2=80=93 if I insert it while its
suspending, it won't show and I have to plug it out and in again while
it's on. Would be worse if it were the other way around :-)=20

(Also, the entry seems to "hang around" in Thunar after I've unplugged
it, I don't know where that bug might be.)
