Cool, I need to look closer at the boot to see what can improved. I'm
been too busy for my own good of late so haven't had a chance to look
closely at this bit.

It should be in the top right corner of the top panel. Just to the

Do they have an open driver? Maybe its supported in F-12 and I just
need to make sure the right package is included to support it.

Thanks for the report.
