Hello everyone! I use Ubuntu 13.04 (and before ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10) on my GT783! I still look on the ubuntu forums for a perfect display! By installing 'wine', I tried to install the MSI adds only available for windows but nothing to do … :/ bad.

The keyboard lights up in white only and are partially functional touch key. MSI What are you doing? :). In any case, COD4 and other games windows going very well under linux with 'wine'.

Sorry for my poor english.
