Re: Linux on Ideapad D330

2019-06-04, 8:11 AM

I got Ubuntu LTS, 19.04 and 19.10 daily Build working Antergos, Manjaro and Linux Mont as well. The closing lid or standby button trick has to be performed just one time if you activate automatic Login. I secured my laptop with disc encryption on startup. Which i recoomend to anyone. Wifi, bluetooth worked out of the box on every distro. Getting the touchscreen alignment  and automatic rotation working can be a little bit tricky. My solution at the beginning of this thread worked for me on Ubuntu and Antergos Gnome. 

Only thing i couldn‘t figure out is why the integrated webcams only work with a 640x480 resolution

Did you disable secure boot? Are you using legacy or uefi?

So, Ubuntu on the lower spec version will only work in portrait mode. Okay, we know that. I will try some other distros know. Like I said earlier, Android is not working, Antergos wasn't working when I tried it and Manjaro I didn't try at all. I have also got a weird low spec model, it has the celeron and the hd screen but 4GB Ram and 64GB internal storage. I heard no youtuber talking about this model but whatever. I will try a few Debian based ones, Ubuntu based ones, Arch Linux based ones and a few others just for testing. I also just for Fun tried out macOS for whatever reason and it didn't work. I updated my bios and enabled virtualisation, did you do that too?

My Bios is up to date, virtualization is activated, secure boot disabled. I also use UEFI.

Does Ubuntu work without setting boot parameter like nomodeset or gfx payload?

If so you might have a chance to rotate your screen.

I can confirm that Zorin os 15 beta works really well. I just had to adjust the coordinates for the accelerator sensor. The touchscreen support is really really good. Actually the best experience i had since i bought this laptop.

The 5M camera still has a max Resolution of 640x480 but i will try to figure this out.

btw today the final release zorin 15 is out

maybe there will be more improvement ?

i have also tried zorin 15 beta with deepin desktop and pantheon, more beautiful compared to gnome 3

next, planning to try genymotion, maybe the performance is acceptable for playing simple android games
