  1. [SOLVED] Re: Will Radeon R6 graphics work in Ubuntu 16.04?

    mastablasta,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I will probably use Ubuntu 14.04 in the meanwhile and then decide what to do in 2019.

    If it is of any use, my Lenovo G780 uses 6.20.155.1+bdcom-0ubuntu6 in Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon 32 bit.

  11. [SOLVED] Re: BCM4313 driver not working under various drivers in Ubuntu 13.04.

    The above suggestion will probably work, but if all else fails try Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon.
