beecrypt has been removed from Debian, and thus from Ubuntu as well, due to it being unmaintained by its developers and not used by any other package in Debian. Hopefully Canon will soon provide a package which does not depend on it, but in the meantime it should be fine to install the Wily package. You can also try to look for third-party repositories ...

Here is how you can test this: If you have the nvidia drivers still installed, make sure dkms ...

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.

The Asus am1m-a motherboard is really unusual in that it does not have a CPU, a GPU and a supporting chipset, but relies on a complete system being integrated into an APU (a system on a chip).
