I went all in with my ‘daily driver’ laptop, an ASUS Zenbook Flip (UX461UN). I fired up the EndeavourOS installer and choose the option to ‘erase this hard drive’ and ultimately decided on Gnome. I have to admit I was a little nervous …
Less than 24 hours in and things are looking really good:
- Graphics are set up with bumblebee and optirun support
- Installed iio-sensor-proxy and tablet mode works nicely including screen rotation and keyboard switching
- Bluetooth enabled and using wireless mouse - still have some audio tweaking to sort out plantronics headset and jabra elite 65 earbuds. I can connect them, but have trouble when switching between A2DP and HID modes. I am sure a little GoogleFu and I’ll get that sorted out.
- Finally, I am currently booting with pcie_aspm=off kernel flag. If I don’t do this I get unexpected reboots when the power settings go to suspend. I think it might be a little more challenging to sort this one out.
So far so good, working pretty productively already and getting settled in with a nice clean setup! I’ll work on my two issues, but don’t be surprised if I end up having to create a topic or two to get help with those!
