This team is a group of HP G-Series laptop owners and/or developers interested in getting it to work 100% under Linux. These laptops feature an integrated Intel graphics card *or* a discrete Nvidia graphics card and come with different screen size configurations (e.g. HP G60, HP G61, HP G70, HP G71, HP G60t, HP G70t, HP G62t, HP G72-250US, etc).

You can check the model and details of you laptop with these commands:
sudo dmidecode -s system-product-name
sudo dmidecode -s system-version
lspci -vnnn | perl -lne 'print if /^\d+\:.+(\[\S+\:\S+\])/'


There are currently around ~40 users that have installed Linux (not only Ubuntu) on this laptop, some of them members of this Launchpad group.
