Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy on Dell XPS L502X

This post mentions some issues and fixes after upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10.

For Ubuntu 13.04 and previous versions, please refer to the corresponding post.

Nvidia Optimus:

– First of all, once the upgrade has completed, the user should workaround bumblebee to make it work:

When you run optirun command, you get an error message like this:

error while loading shared libraries: libturbojpeg.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Open a Terminal and type:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libturbojpeg.so.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libturbojpeg.so

and

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libturbojpeg.so.0 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libturbojpeg.so

—————————————————-

SD Card Reader:

Up to 13.04, the SD card reader was not really functional, unless you boot up with the card inserted. This bug has been fixed in Kernel 3.12 and should be backported soon to 13.10. Patience.

We’d be updating this post by this week-end, with useful information.

    Thanks for the comment. That is indeed what I have been doing up to now.
    Yet , this bug has been fixed in the latest Kernel which has been backported in 14.04.
    Try 14.04. It works out of the box.
