Your wireless adapter is blocked. You can unblock it by running sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/asus.conf <<< "options asus_nb_wmi wapf=4" Reboot after that. If that does not work try 1,2 or 3 instead of 4.

Well if you're wondering you can install Ubuntu on this configuration, sure why not. Lubuntu is a lighter version you can try out. After installing every OS you need to spend a little time to make things settled so after installation you have to run sudo apt-get update If you faced any unusual problem you can write it here.

Like mentioned on comments, disabling Bluetooth and adding this blacklist dw_dmac blacklist dw_dmac_core to sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf solved all the issues for me. I got this from this link http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=163126&start=20#p961212

If you haven't already, try this:sudo service network-manager restart. I had a similar problem with an Asus and this did the trick.

If the disk device (/dev/sda or whatever) doesn't show up in Ubuntu, but does show up in the firmware and in other OSes, then that most probably means that Ubuntu lacks drivers for the disk controller chipset on the motherboard. Don't bother checking with the disk manufacturer; it's almost certainly not a problem with the disk or SSD itself. The usual ...

I don't know how to go about solving this issue, but if it were me, I'd just bypass it by installing Ubuntu to a hard drive and then cloning it over to the SSD using a program like Macrium Reflect. I did this and it worked okay, but I did have to run boot-repair to reconfigure GRUB. Best of luck to you!

There's only one way of knowing: Testing. Ubuntu uses the Linux kernel. Unlike Windows' NT kernel, Linux comes with most drivers built-in, so in 99% of the cases every piece of hardware will be "plug-and-play": you insert it, it works. No need to install anything. But sometimes you may have some trouble, specially with extremely new hardware, since Linux ...

I haven't tried the DS (only the DG which use another chipset) myself but I have no reason to believe that it shouldn't work. According to http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Matrix:Vendor-Asus the DS is supported since kernel 2.6.37.

Disabling "wake on lid open" in bios seems to have helped me on Fedora 23. Closing the lid does suspend and I want to have that behavior, but now when I open the lid, resume doesn't happen before I press some key on the keyboard. And somehow this makes the resume to actually work - or at least I haven't seen the resume hangs so far after changing that ...

Instead of changing Boot Order, You can directly boot from USB drive without affecting boot order. Look for the option before going into BIOS setup (It varies from system to system, so check it with your system and see what happens. Also try to install the Ubuntu on a different drive other than Windows. I am also running Windows 10 with Ubuntu 15.10 ...

The linux kernel is having problems with the HQ6700 CPU: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109081 Thread comments say wait for kernel 4.6, but some "get it to work" with 4.4 and some special boot arguments.

This most likely seems to be a graphics drivers related compatibility issue. You say that you have a new ASUS laptop ... ASUS ships with NVIDIA cards. As you didn't provide further details, I assume it came with GTX 900 series. For these new adapters it is recommended to use the latest official drivers. Boot from Ubuntu USB installation media you have ...

I have the same problem. So I installed ubuntu 15.04 and found out that, after all updates, the kernel 3.19.0-43 was installed. Now the vivo doesn't boot again. I changed some boot options in the Bios and changed it again. The next boot brings me to the extended options. There I choose booting with kernel 3.18.0-12. It runs fine. In synaptic I erased all ...
