MSI-X370 Ubuntu USB Problems

Posted: Saturday, May 12, 2012 | Posted by Aaron Hampshire | Labels: , ,
Ubuntu (and derivatives) 11.10 and 12.04
I recently purchased the beautiful, lightweight MSI-X370. Besides some audio issues I had, I highly recommend this laptop for Lubuntu... that is, until Ubuntu 11.10 came out.
My USB drives won't work now. I'm sure this isn't a complete fix, but it does solve the problem.

In the terminal, copy-paste:
sudo leafpad /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
Note: if you are running Ubuntu, change leafpad to gedit, of course.

At the very bottom of the page, add the following line. Save. Reboot.
blacklist rts5139
I hope that helps...
