    Yea I tried that first but it fails at the command: sudo dkms install -m psmouse -v elantech-v7right
    saying:

    Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel. Skipping...

    Building module:
    cleaning build area...
    make KERNELRELEASE=3.12.5 -C /lib/modules/3.12.5/build M=/var/lib/dkms/psmouse/elantech-v7right/build/src psmouse.ko...
    Error! Build of psmouse.ko failed for: 3.12.5 (x86_64)
    Consult the make.log in the build directory
    /var/lib/dkms/psmouse/elantech-v7right/build/ for more information.

    My post right before this one is the log it's referring to but yea, that is why I am trying to apply it manually lol. Anyway I've made some progress... I just wish I understood the error a bit better since that would make it 10x easier to fix

    I see what you mean. I don't see much in that log though. I'll see if I can get around to installing Arch again and test myself. You may want to check the Fedora forums in the meantime though, there may be specifics relating to dkms... afaik Fedora always implements cutting edge features, so it may behave oddly in cases. In any event, they'd know a lot more than I do, I'm just good at googling :-)

    hahaha where do you think I looked to first my post over there: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/questi...k-not-working/ although that was before I found out this was driver related lol (should probably update the post). Also, for the record my best friend Google is how found this thread and that it was for sure driver related haha. Anyway thank you very much for your help so far... even with it not working yet it has gotten me A LOT closer to having it working correctly.

    Okay so I did get the mouse working, the Fedora 20 provided 3.12.5 kernel got pushed through yum and allowed the "ready to use" instructions to work. A couple steps failed due to them already being installed / enabled so I took a chance and just kept going with the steps and in the end it now works.... hurrayyyy one problem solved. I hope someone else will stumble on this and help them . Now there's just that pesky audio issue with sound from only one speaker, can anyone confirm whether or not the ROG G750JH is supposed to have three, two, or one speaker? I believe that it's supposed to have the traditional left, right and bass speaker, but I haven't found anywhere to confirm this. Anyway thanks again villiansv --anyway I can officially thank you or give you a thumbs up lol?

    I'm glad you got it sorted mate. Your "thank you" is more than enough, don't worry about it

    Just download the installer ISO and put it on a flash drive with pendrivelinuxinstaller (Google it). Then boot the flash drive with Secure Boot disabled. Check to make sure that the HW is properly supported in the live USB mode. Then go back into Windows and make space for Ubuntu using the partitioning tool. Then boot the USB again and double-click on the installer. Follow the prompts, and you should be set!
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    We now have 178 people whose systems will not break! Yippee!

    Can't remember having issues with sound, and I don't have Linux running at the moment so I can't help there.
    good info, thanks. worked perfect on Linux Mint 16.
    Also the xbacklight tip works fine, just assigned ctrl-F5 and ctrl-F6 for darker/lighter.
    atheros ethernet, wifi, and also sound worked oob
    so far much better than ubuntu (and also os x until the boot issue is resolved).

    Hey, probably a dumb question, but did anyone manage to map xbacklight decrease/increase to the fn key combinations probably? Would also be nice to know if anyone managed to make the keyboard backlight value to stick between reboots.

    These are more or less the only issues i got on my G750JX-T4070H with Ubuntu Gnome 14.04 driven by the 3.13.0-26-generic kernel (well, except of bluetooth, what is marginal bugging me), after i installed the wifi driver from the additional drivers interface and the nvidia propietary driver (tried the latest stable and beta from their website, but xserver freezes every now and then, so i reverted to 331 from the ubuntu repository, which works well, not perfect, but well [still some freezes every now and then, but way less]). UEFI + Secure Boot enabled btw, just had to turn off fast boot before installation.
    Would be great if anyone could lend me a hand

    Small update on screen brightness control with fn key combinations, this guide: http://lajackson2.wordpress.com/2014...ht-brightness/
    seems to work pretty well (just the file at 1. is acpid.conf not only acpid and execute permissions have to be set at the script). Only downfall, it seems to be not working with the beta driver.

    As for generic Linux compatibility, I'd say this is a nice powerhouse.
    Unfortunately, the system fails to deliver full I/O performance as only one port supports SATA3, the others run SATA2.

    This is not an OS compatibility issue, but as usual, you get to see the problems in the system logs, while Windows just swallows them

    I use Linux as my only OS on this machine. You can do that too.

    The SATA problem is a clear (misleading) advertising problem - most people use the machine with a single drive, where full performance is achieved.
