I had the exact same problem after upgrading kubuntu to 16.04. I'm on an Asus Rog GL752VW-T4060T with Nvidia GTX960M and Intel Skylake graphics, the boot process hung at kubuntu logo. I tried what Jon Delano said, and it completely works for me now, thank you very much! The driver configuration of the global configuration doesn't seem to detect the ...

For now, Linux won't run on the T100HA acceptably. Even with complicated hacks, a lot of important hardware (WiFi, sound...) is unsupported.

Overall it should run fine. I have an Asus UX303LA with quite similar specs and the things I had to tweak to make them work were the hotkeys for the display brightness and the keyboard back light (see this link for a workaround for the keyboard backlight issue if you experience it: http://askubuntu.com/a/701145/474849). The gestures on the touch pad might ...

The main issues with Ubuntu tend to be with wireless cards and Nvidia or AMD graphics cards. Since the Asus F555LA-AB31 got good reviews, and the only differences in the models are HDD and processor (components which are generally very well-supported under Linux), I'd say go for it!

Installing the latest nvidia drivers and restarting made it work in the end. I also removed acpi=off from my boot parameters.

I have a UX303UA, which has a FocalTech touchpad, rather than the Elan your Zenbook has. I solved this problem by adding a conf file to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d called 52-focaltech.conf. You would probably want to call yours 52-elan.conf or such. The 52 at the start is important because that way it runs after the system-supplied conf files for the ...

Found another solution that may work for you Edit your grub file: sudo gedit /etc/default/grub change the line line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video.use_native_backlight=1" then save and exit. Run sudo update-grub then reboot your PC This should add its own backlight control as ...

I have the ASUS FZ50VW-NS51 and I was able to get ubuntu to load using i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 nouveau.modeset=0 acpi_osi=! acpi_backlight=vendor idle=nomwait as kernel parameters (Press e at the grub menu after selecting the boot option you want). Edit: Any time you reboot before installing the latest nvidia drivers you will have to specify the ...

Same issue here on Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW (same GPU and CPU, Ubuntu 16.04). After I changed "quiet splash" in grub to acpi_osi=! acpi_backlight=native idle=nomwait the fan stopped spinning like mad and integrated GPU seems to work. But now the system fails to shutdown normally and also hangs on executing glxinfo command. Actually I don't quite understand ...

I have not tried what Jon Delano posted above this but... I tried installing the nvidia proprietary driver on a USB with a "save changes" partion so it would save my changes in the Live session, and after installing the Nvidia driver the computer now boots, and everything seems to two work expect the stuff highlighted by Jon Delano above :) I'm guessing the ...

I carried out a fresh install of 16.04 on my ASUS GL552VW. The only GRUB parameters I entered (for installation and normal boot) were: nouveau.modeset=0 To stop Nouveau from taking over. Once I'd installed the nVidia drivers, I had to disable Secure Boot. With those settings, everything works. Touchpad, Skylake support, nVidia graphics @ 1920x1080, ...

I have exactly the same CPU and GPU and the same issue, I posted a similar question about this issue. From what I've read sky lake CPU's are not supported fully yet.

I am using these boot parameters to boot 16.04 on my GL552VW: i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 nouveau.modeset=0 acpi_osi=! acpi=0 acpi_backlight=vendor idle=nomwait My touchpad requires me to boot twice to get the pointer to display. I am trying to figure that out. Modify 10_linux in /etc/grub.d line 177 put in after ro and before ${arg} and then sudo ...

I was able to get 15.10 installed by doing this: Modify /etc/grub.d/10_linux so that any subsequent updates don't overwrite the grub.cfg file and thus your modifications. sudo -H gedit /etc/grub.d/10_linux Look for line 177. It should start with linux ${rel_dirname}/${basename}.efi.signed root=${linux_root_device_thisversion} After ro, ...

The Asus Z87-A has a Nuvoton NCT6791D SuperIO chip to read temperatures and fan speeds and control the fans. Instructions on how to read and control the fan speeds are given here fan configuration of Z97-E under OpenSUSE. They are for OpenSUSE and the Z97-E motherboard but the process will be pretty much identical for the Z97-A under Ubuntu.

I have Lubuntu 16.04 running on a Medion Akoya E1210 (an MSI Wind clone). This is an Atom N270, which is a very similar in performance terms when compared to your N455, albeit the N270 is 32-bit and GPU-less. With 2GB of RAM, it's acceptable for casual use, although rendering web pages can be slow (e.g. when JavaScript kicks in). I wouldn't try LibreOffice ...

According to the download page of Ubuntu, it will not perform really well with RAM under 2GB. There are other Ubuntu flavors out there that may suit your system here

I recently installed 16.04 on a ASUS UX303UA. Everything I have tried so far has worked, except for one small glitch, which is that sometimes the wifi doesn't come back on after suspend. I've fixed that by adding a little script to the power management directory which works all the time. I am just getting into configuring gestures. Right out of the box the ...

Ok, I think I found it. Edit your /etc/default/grub file: sudo nano /etc/default/grub Change the following line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to say this instead: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi_osi=! acpi_backlight=native idle=nomwait quiet splash" Press CTRL + o and then press ENTER to save the file. Press CTRL + x to exit nano. ...

I had the same problem as you, and I just found the problem. The 5Ghz network was setted to choose automatically the channel, one day it changed to a channel with an high number and my card wasn't able to find the network anymore. So just check in your router if the network has an high number channel and change it back to a lower one (now I'm with channel ...

This touchpad should work on Ubuntu 14.04 after you install 4.4 kernel by sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-xenial or in Ubuntu 16.04 out of the box. This touchpad is not supported by Ubuntu 15.10.

As far as I can see the Nvidia card can't be disabled in the bios. I have tried everything I can find/think of to get 15.10 installed but it always fails at some point. Even trying Ubuntu Server 15.10 doesn't work, it just goes to a blank screen. Minimal freezes while choosing language. Desktop 15.10 while trying nomodeset gets so far but freezes, trying ...

@koenigaxel try creating the USB installer using Rufus. It has always worked for me, although the process is now very long. Is it also possible that you are making a 64-bit installer while your computer only would take 32-bit? That happened to me a few months ago.

You can try to install (or check if it is already installed) thermald. It is a daemon that prevent your PC from overheating. To install run the following command: sudo apt-get install thermald I also suggest to enable Intel P-State frequency governor that manage how your CPU change working frequency. To do this edit grub configuration file sudo nano ...

The edited line should ...
