    MSI
    PS42 Modern 8RC


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

    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
    Code:
    [Elantech Touchpads]
    MatchName=*Elantech Touchpad*
    AttrThumbPressureThreshold=90
    AttrThumbSizeThreshold=30
    AttrPalmSizeThreshold=900

    Most things work. Wifi did not work in live USB boot. I connected via ethernet and checked the box to allow proprietary drivers during the installation and wifi worked fine after installation. Cannot get any form of suspend to work. Regardless of how suspend is initiated, resume powers on the laptop but to a black screen with no response to keyboard input (i.e., cannot drop to TTY1 to troubleshoot). Removing light-locker and/or switching screensavers (xscreensaver, xfce4-screensaver, gnome-screensaver) has no effect on resume.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    After much trouble shooting and very excellent support from ioria on the Ubuntu IRC Support, I was able to successfully suspend/resume without locking up on resume by updating the kernel to the "hwe" kernel:
    Code:
     sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04
    which installed the 5.3.0-28-generic kernel.
    It IRC Support also suggested using xscreensaver instead of light-locker, so I removed light-locker and installed xscreensaver. It's uglier but apparently more stable. There are detailed instructions for setting up xscreensaver for laptops using 18.04 LTS here:
    [LINK] https://www.reddit.com/r/xubuntu/com...n_suspend_for/ [/LINK]
    I had tried several different screensavers while troubleshooting, so within the XFCE Settings > Session and Startup > Application Autostart Tab referenced in the reddit instructions, I also unchecked Autostart for both light-locker and the other screensaver applications that were removed.

    Ubuntu 18.04/Kubuntu 19.10 ASUS ROG STRIX G 18.04 LTS works great, only problem is the speakers. Kubuntu 19.10 had some issues with screen tearing and eventual death, I think this is because of the nvidia drivers it comes with plus the laptop having optimus, that said I have nvidia-driver-430.5 installed on 18.04 running great but I did the installation and set up myself. Debian Buster works without hitch as well minus the speakers once again.
