hp 4320s: Can I install drivers for SUSE in ubuntu 10.04.1 OS


Not so long ago I bought hp4320s. From different kind of OS-s I choose Ubuntu 10.04.1. But at the official site drivers are provided only with SUSE Linux. The question is: Can I use these drivers for Ubuntu Linux? If so, how can it be done? Thank you for reply.

Convert .rpm files to .deb files

Another type of package files is Red Hat Package Manager files which have the .rpm suffix. It is not recommended to install these on an Ubuntu system. In almost all cases, a native Ubuntu .deb package is available. However, if absolutely necessary, an .rpm file can be converted to a .deb package using the program alien.

What kind of device is that? What do you need drivers for?

The main thing is that after successful installing ubuntu the only driver I installed is the driver FGLRX (ATI). All the other devices works well (I think so)
And the thing I worry about is that my laptop is too noisy. As I have two OS-s in my laptop (XP professional and ubuntu) I can compare them. And when working on XP with native drivers it works very quietly. And the only solution that I see is to install native drivers for hp4320s that are available at the official site. But they are for SUSE.
What should I do?

PS How can I check all my devices work properly?

What "official site" are you talking about? I'm not sure that there are drivers that will make the machine's fans quieter. In general, you really shouldn't need to install drivers under Linux because they're usually part of the kernel (though proprietary graphics drivers are a notable exception).

If your devices are working as they should, there's no need to worry..

I meant
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport...&swEnvOID=2020

I updated my Ubuntu 10.04.1 up to 10.10 version. All devices works fine.
The only device I dont't like the way it works is the TouchPad (Right click doesn't work) .
How can I repear it? I mean should I install some driver for touchpad or it can fixed via OS features.

I'm not sure to be honest. You could try their Synapics driver, though, especially since it's not packaged for a particular distro.
