Having trouble with the realtek wireless driver. Is that the one you guys have gotten to work? Wasn't sure what the VA4 meant. I pulled it down and tried to do a make and make install, but encountered errors during the make install part.
Haven't spent too much time troubleshooting that yet. Just wanted to verify that I'm barking up the right tree with the rtlce-VA4 driver.
If someone gets bluetooth or the microphone working on maverick please post. My laptop just shipped today, so there will be one more linux user messing with this thing by the end of next week.

Overall, I'm relieved that this laptop is working so well with linux considering how new it is. Now I'm on the same page. I'm about to give that driver a try. If I get the microphone working I'll post an update.
This could be a sweet little Linux laptop. Can't wait to get it working. It should get LAN and bluetooth working without special drivers.

Here is my lspci: Wireless performance and range do Lenovo ThinkPad X120e Broadcom WLAN to be very excellent with this card however. Keyboard and Touchpad ThinkPad Xe keyboard and TrackPoint The Xe keyboard borrows heavily from the ThinkPad X series, which means you have a better than average typing experience on such a small notebook. Spacing and travel on the keys is fairly good, though there were times that keystrokes were not registered.
Xe: Where can I buy the 2x2 Broadcom wlan card? NotebookReview
We wish the Lenovo ThinkPad X120e Broadcom WLAN row of keys was set up like the rest of the ThinkPad X series, so that the function keys were top billing and the F keys were secondary. This nice on full size notebooks, but even nicer on smaller notebooks. The touchpad on the Xe is incredibly small, thanks to the small form factor.
Even with the small size and small buttons the touchpad is usable for short periods and the TrackPoint pointing stick is very precise. These pointing options are very usable, but most users will want to invest in a decent travel mouse, especially for web browsing or working on PowerPoints for extended times.
We could playback P flash video and P local video without issues. This is thanks to a fix Lenovo issued shortly after the launch of the Xe.
