I will probably be criticized, but I am adding this information, because it gives a clue how to install a driver for this device in Ubuntu. Probably someone will write a complete step-by-step guide.

I had the same problem. Running the following command helped me test and understand the problem: ldd /usr/lib/nvidia-346/libGL.so.346.46 Finally, adding the following to my ~/.profile solved the problem: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/nvidia-346:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH as indeed the /usr/lib/nvidia-346 path was not given to the linker.

I have the same tablet, Winbook TW100, and could never install 15.04 from the USB drive although 15.04 did work when running from the USB drive. So I installed 14.10 and ran it for a week.

If this problem persists in Windows, it is not an Ubuntu problem. It is either a hardware problem, or a problem with your wireless environment, or just low signal strength. Try to get closer to your router. And also changing a channel in your router settings may solve that problem, if there are too many wireless networks using that channel in your ...

In most cases you do not need any additional drivers to run Ubuntu. You can test how Ubuntu works with your hardware by booting from LiveCD and trying Ubuntu without install.
