Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Post by diogoeichert »

I'm just posting this here in case someone is interested. I've managed to successfully install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS with the Wi-Fi adapter working on the T6. The trick is to install the operating system first, then download and use this driver:

I had success following the "without DKMS" steps.

Nice job! Have you tested all hardware, like Bluetooth? The GUI works properly, too?

Absolutely. If I may quote from Ubuntu's slogan, everything just works. The WiFi adapter was the single thing that didn't work out of the box, but with the correct driver, the system is now 100% working.

Does your mouse cursor gets stuttery/stuck in the upper left corner? I had this issue with many linux distros, I really liked Elementary OS but it was too annoying and I couldn't take it anymore and reinstalled Windows 10 even tho it makes the PC barely usable. :(

Hello, thank you for your information. WiFi works fine with debian 11.
Do you also have a solution for this driver problem?

I suspect upgrading to Linux Kernel 6.2 would solve this problem. Of course, before upgrading Linux Kernel, always do a backup first.

Oh nice, what source did you get the kernel from?

If you are on Ubuntu, you can do `dist upgrade` to upgrade to the newest kernel. You can google "how to upgrade ubuntu linux kernel" to learn more about it.
