This also matches the previous Frontpage deal from a few days ago.
Quote from DealzOnWheels :It was slow for me too, guys, but if you tweak the system, allocate virtual space for ram, etc., It is actually pretty decent...
My worries were ram and hd, I fixed those though, thankfully.
Tweek (not the powder or rocks, ie ur settings, fix them n00bz)
Create virtual memory from the he, I allocated 16gb so for me I have 20gb of ram on this, 4gb + 16 virtual
Get large memory card, I have 256gb and may upgrade, as needed
Quote from SennamonTea :Ok so I've had this laptop for a few days now and tested almost all the LInux Distros for those interested.
Here are the list of the best experiences right after install(all are 64bit):
#1 Zorin Lite 15
#1 Xubuntu 18.04, only edit you will need is change touchpad behavior to disable trackpad while typing(enable and set it to 0.2 seconds, increase time if you need to). Other minor gripe is it doesn't come with htop, but it'll prompt you in terminal on how to install. Super fast start up(~5seconds to log in from cold)
#1*Peppermint 10, this distro actually works the best right out of the box, all hotkeys work and everything. HOWEVER, this is a big however. I cannot get this distro to install, it errors out at configing since it doesn't have the controller for the eMMc drive. If you can get it to install I figure it'd be just as good if not better than Xubuntu
#2 Manjaro 18.1.2XFCE, very good but has some screen flicker at max brightness and slower than Xubuntu. Also sometimes on start up it has graphical glitches.
#3 Lubuntu 18.10. Everything good except one thing, which for me is a pretty big no, default driver for touchpad does not enable tap to click on touchpad, I didn't stay long enough to enable it.
#4 Lubuntu Mate18.04.3 :good but slower than previous distros, also has more screen tear for me on youtube
#5 Crunchbang++, keeps freezing and having issues
#6 Debian cannot start
Edit: I haven't tried installing to the eMMC, but the machine runs Debian stable reasonably well installed on a USB 3.0 dongle. I highly recommend the 5.2 backports kernel & the backports firmware-atheros package. Bluetooth is working.
#7Bodhi LInux 5.0.0: freezing/slow/slow startup
#8 PopOS: I tried a heavier OS for fun, this seems to work just fine, a little slower than the rest but as expected for a heavier specced OS
I didn't try Linux mint or Ubuntu, those are heavier distros that I did not want to touch. They usually work with everything but not my purpose of using this laptop. Hope this helps you.
Quote from nnSlick :MX-Linux installs perfectly on my two lw14s. Even the hotkeys work at the first boot and hardware video decoding works beautifully without requiring any tweak when I tried VLC or YouTube.
