There's no card support at the moment (3.9 branch). However 3rd-party driver exists, and it's on the way to merging into mainline. As we want to use it right now, we'll use AUR:
To load driver, type sudo modprobe alx. dmesg will indicate something like this:
[75367.300725] Compat-drivers backport release: compat-drivers-v3.9-rc4-2-su [75367.300728] Backport based on linux-stable.git v3.9-rc4 [75367.300730] compat.git: linux-stable.git [75367.301040] Qualcomm Atheros(R) AR816x/AR817x PCI-E Ethernet Network Driver [75367.314351] alx 0000:02:00.0: alx(84:8f:69:d3:a6:09): Qualcomm Atheros Ethernet Network Connection
Then configure network as usual.
Original Ubuntu provides 3rd-party unknown daemon for touchpad, and control utility is written in Java. That is unknown crap, moreover it's unavailable for non-Ubuntu system. The worst is that currently (3.9 kernel) touchpad is not supported by kernel. It's detected as common PS/2 mouse, but recently 3rd-party driver appeared:
After compiling and installing it would be nice to reload psmouse module:
sudo rmmod psmouse sudo modprobe psmouse
Voilà — touchpad works as it must: you may use two-fingers scroll in any direction, control it via gsynaptics etc. Touchpad LED also works (out-of-the-box). To turn LED on:
echo 255 >/sys/class/leds/dell-laptop::touchpad/brightness
echo 0 >/sys/class/leds/dell-laptop::touchpad/brightness
Works out-of-the-box. You don't need GSPCA for that.
Works out-of-the-box. Notice that rts5139 driver is in staging, so be ready to complain on bugs.
Intel HD4000 works OK since 3.4 kernel, use earlier kernels at one's own risk.
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INTEL=m CONFIG_SND_HDA_PREALLOC_SIZE=4096 CONFIG_SND_HDA_HWDEP=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_RECONFIG=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP_MODE=1 CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_JACK=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_PATCH_LOADER=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_HDMI=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CIRRUS=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_GENERIC=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_POWER_SAVE_DEFAULT=0
Other HDA codecs are unnecessary.
Note that full sound support including internal mic support appeared in 3.9 kernel, do consider using it. PulseAudio works OK as well.
No way to make hardware ones work. Brightness, volume and mediaplayer keys work OK. For touchpad toggling consider using my desktop-scripts: 
Test libfprintd version with VFS5011 Fingerprint Reader support is available here: . Work OK.
It's OK to pass the following options to kernel via bootloader:
to use native brightness control module. Otherwise it's level won't be stored. But if you use KDE, remove this one:
otherwise KDE won't be able to adjust brightness.
It works, but requires several tricks to take bugs away. Create tricks.sh file in /usr/lib/systemd/system-sleep/ folder with the following content:
#!/bin/sh case $1/$2 in pre/hibernate) echo never >/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/replace_swsusp echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/compression/enabled echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/user_interface/enable_escape echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/user_interface/default_console_level echo lzo >/sys/power/tuxonice/compression/algorithm echo shutdown >/sys/power/disk ifconfig wlan0 down uksmctl -d sync ;; post/hibernate) hdparm -B 253 /dev/sda uksmctl -a echo madvise >/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled ;; pre/suspend) uksmctl -d sync ;; post/suspend) hdparm -B 253 /dev/sda uksmctl -a ;; esac
and make it executable. It you don't use pf-kernel, remove all strings related to TuxOnIce, UKSM and Transparent Hugepages.
Also it's nice to pass the following option to kernel via bootloader:
otherwise errors during hibernation may occur. They do not interrupt hibernation, just pollute the screen. Everything works without this option.
