Ubuntu 18.10 on X1 Extreme 4K

Hi, I got the basic system working but there are still some issues. Anybody knows how to make the following work?


1. Wake from suspend.

2. Control of screen brightness using F5 and F6. Currently volume control works out of the box but not brightness control.

3. Hybrid GPU switching

4. Sometimes no sound from the speaker of a 4K TV connecting to the X1E via HDMI 2.0 port. Even I made the switch manually in the sound control system. It worked yesterday but never works today.

What's DOS?

Re: Ubuntu 18.10 on X1 Extreme 4K

please how did you do it? I've been triying and trying, it gets stuck and won't even enter the installer ? Could it be because my USB key is 32GB? I'm lost...

Switching to discrete graphic card in BIOS helped me.

Afterwards booting Linux from USB stick was no problem anymore.
