I’m still not happy with the new version of Ubuntu. It runs acceptably from boot-up, but if I suspend or hibernate, performance bogs down and little glitches happen, like the speaker occasionally clicking and the fingerprint reader not working.
Since I can live without it, I ran the uninstall for Fingerprint GUI to see if that was the culprit.
Next, I tried to locate some help with the volume buttons, which also don’t work. I found some advice on ubuntuforums for 11.10. This was the first Unity release, so it might also work with 12.04. …And it does!
After a few cycles of suspend, no issues. Hibernate also isn’t causing a problem, but although it starts to hibernate, actually only drops down to suspend mode.
