You can install a driver for Ubuntu 16.04 this way sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi sudo apt update sudo apt install rtl8192eu-dkms You need to be connected by wire for that. This is my PPA. I added the ID for this adapter to official Realtek drivers. They always forget to do it. If UEFI is used in your computer, you need to disable ...

I suggest that you try blacklisting the internal device to see if it helps: sudo -i echo "blacklist iwlwifi" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf modprobe -r iwlwifi exit rfkill list all It may take a reboot.

Ok! After a few days trying to sort out this issue, I found out that I had my ideapad_laptop module blacklisted on /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf . It was due to a Bumblebee installation tutorial that I followed few days ago. So removing ideapad_laptop from my blacklist.conf solved the problem. Maybe one of the solutions I listed on the question works. So ...

As per DougSmythies' comment, the Intel i7 vPro chip (a "skylake" processor) does not seem to respect prior versions of Ubuntu. Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit installed without a hiccup. Post-installation, the OS runs mostly fine, but it does have some issues (it stalls on loading sometimes or cannot get past the login screen on some other tries). But having started ...

I had the same issue and followed the answer given by @bamb00zled. Go here: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ Download 3 (maybe 4) debs to a folder somewhere: linux-headers-VERSION-NUMBER_all.deb linux-headers-VERSION-NUMBER_amd64.deb linux-image-VERSION-NUMBER_amd64.deb linux-image-extra-VERSION-NUMBER_amd64.deb if available Install ...

A change to your alsa-base.conf in /etc/modprobe.d/ may be needed but it is not possible to say for certain as you have not listed what make and model your computer is (there are sometimes specific changes for specific hardware required in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and your device may not have the correct device selected even if it is not a device ...

I know this post is a few months old. I'm sure somebody will find it of use. Go to: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2262459&page=5 As long as you have at least Ubuntu kernel 3.19 then proceed to step 2 of post #44. I did it and it worked like a champ. There is a bug (that I have noticed hasn't manifested itself lately... maybe it's fixed by ...

Looks as this has been updated, my X1C with ubuntuMATE 16.04 LTS has /sys/class/leds/tpacpi\:\:kbd_backlight/brightness which works as expected ie: # echo 2 > /sys/class/leds/tpacpi\:\:kbd_backlight/brightness Brings it to full light :)

Finally got the brightness controls to work properly! The issue persists due to presence of two backlight modules acpi_video0 and intel_backlight. You can cross check if both modules exists by running the below command. ls /sys/class/backlight/ If you find acpi_video0 as one of the modules run the command: sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/...

I had to add these lines to grub: acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_osi=linux thinkpad-acpi.brightness_enable=1 Note that last one. That was the one that made the brightness keys work.

There's a somewhat nicer application now available to Ubuntu (and other distributions): TLP – Linux Advanced Power Management TLP brings you the benefits of advanced power management for Linux without the need to understand every technical detail. TLP comes with a default configuration already optimized for battery life, so you may just ...
