    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Kubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo
    PS42 Modern 8RC

    Core i5 8250U CPU, nVidia Geforce 1050 Max-Q GPU, 8Gb RAM.

    What works:
    Display, Fn + media keys, keyboard backlight control, USB ports, touchpad, sound, wi-fi, bluetooth, webcam, mic.
    nVidia proprietary GPU driver installs and works correctly.
    Suspend works, no hardware seems to be missing after wake.

    What does not work:
    Fingerprint reader

    Did not test HDMI output.

    Works out of the box with 19.04:
    HP Spectre Folio 13 AK-0801no. I suppose all 0801xx models should work.
    The only thing that doesn't work, the HP Tilt Pen that comes with the laptop. It works as a pointer and connects with bluetooth, but buttons doesn't do anything, and not sure about "tilt".

    Touchscreen, auto-rotation, camera, bluetooth, wi-fi, backlight keyboard, FN-keys, etc. all works.

    Seen some comments that linux doesn't do the B&O speakers justice, but they work, and I don't know what the difference should be.

    1) Ubuntu 19.10
    2) Acer
    3) Aspire A515-54

    Acer Aspire 5 A515-54-58ZU

    In BIOS:
    Disable Secure Boot
    Set SATA configuration to AHCI. It will most likely be set to "RST with Optane".

    Although the BIOS has the SATA "RST with Optane" option, I cannot see the device, so either it is not supported outside Windows, or the hardware is not actually present.
    Fingerprint scanner does not work.

    Everything else looks good.

    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS live cd/usb boots but the touchpad stops working or is erratic at best, which is why I went with Ubuntu 19.10.

    3) X395

    Almost everything works out of the box.
    Slight issues:
    Hibernate hangs when entering into hibernated state.
    Elan tech trackpad was not great until I added a few parameters to libinput. These are added to a /etc/libinput/local-overrides.quirks
    Edit quirks mode to sort out thumb size
