Description

I've also previously recommended Rufus for use with Fedora images, due to issues with Fedora Media Writer. As of December 2022 (Fedora Workstation 37), Fedora Media Writer seems to have improved in reliability, so I now recommend it as it's easier to use than Rufus. If GNOME feels sluggish, it can be slightly improved by turning off animations. This is possible using the “GNOME Tweaks” tool that you can install from the “Software” app. You’ll also be asked which disk/partition to install GRUB too — just leave this as the default as it won’t work anyway. We’ll fix that later. atomisp_ov2680: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned. To get this far I’ve used information from the following places. I’m extremely grateful to the people that wrote them!

Start up the tablet (no need to hold Volume Up any more!), and it should show you GRUB for a few seconds, then start up to the Ubuntu login screen. Having also now tried 20.04 on it for a while I’d say 22.04 is going to be a very nice upgrade for these tablets. The onscreen keyboard not pulling up with a swipe, not working on all authentication prompts and the sound issue are the big annoyances. Plus needing that manual grub32 install ;) The following error occurred while installing the boot loader. The system will not be bootable. Would you like to ignore this and continue with installation? Turn the tablet on while holding the Volume Up button. The screen should say something like “Esc is pressed”, then you will be given a setup menu.That seemed to provide power to the devices but not the tablet, so I fully charged the tablet & crossed my fingers With a full-size USB port, the Linx 10V32 lets you connect all your external devices wihtout the need for additional hubs or cables. Whether you need files from your external HDD, prefer to use a mouse when working, or just want to plug in your Windows Xbox controller for a better gaming experience, the Linx 10V32 lets you work and play the way you want to. After around a second, the tablet will display its boot manager screen. Touch is supported at this point. This is likely just the Linx WiFi not liking my particular AP, but I had to turn WiFi off and on again to get a connection. (I often have to do that in my normal Mint too, and usually only with my home AP. If I use an ESP-01 or my phone as an AP, it hooks up immediately.)

Two main builds of Chrome/Chromium OS exist for installation on generic PCs – ChromeOS Flex and Arnold the Bat. I have also tried Cinnamon, MATE and XFCE on the tablet. These are generally less demanding and therefore faster and more responsive than GNOME or KDE. However, they also don’t fully cater for tablets in the way that the bigger desktop environments. For example, when I last tested them, none of the three support automatic rotation of the screen based on the accelerometer, or automatic rotation of touch inputs. That means you’ll have to set your screen rotation to landscape manually if you want to use it in that orientation, and if you want to use the touchscreen in landscape orientation, you’ll need to rotate it using the command-line scripts shown here. For those with keen eyes may have noticed something strange with the specs above. When advertised you may have seen that the Linx 1010 has 2 full size USB ports but the Leather Edition comes with a micro-USB port and an OTG adapter, somewhat odd???

Frequently Asked Questions about Linx 1010 Tablet

Do you know which part of the install it got to when you received these errors (for either operating system)? I did have a few issues, mainly caused by the tablet only having a single micro USB port so the entire install had to be done on battery, which ran out while the installation process said it was configuring software, but on reboot I was amazed to find Fedora was on there and appears to work

Now both touch screen and accelerometer screen autorotation work but the portrait modes are upside down. If you have any advice to fix that I would be grateful. EFI is a complicated beast and I’m not super knowledgeable about it myself! Part of it is baked into the board firmware in the same way as BIOS, but an EFI partition is also required on disk, along with GPT replacing the older disk MBR. (Most EFI enabled firmware is still able to boot from MBR disks, never tried it on the Linx tablet though.) The firmware comes from the device manufacturer, while partitions on disk generally come from an operating system you have installed - though third party EFI boot loaders like rEFInd are available (I use rEFInd to switch between Windows and Linux on my desktop PC). As the most touch-oriented of the big Linux desktop environments, GNOME seems to be the best set up for tablets at this time, although it can be slow on a low-powered tablet like the LINX 1010B. If you want to stay with GNOME but speed things up a bit, you can install “GNOME Tweaks” and turn off animations, which gives a slight improvement. I’ve not looked at logs from Anaconda (Fedora’s installer) before, but if you can find some log files from it and send them my way, there’s a chance I can figure out what’s going wrong. If you’re using a non-standard setup, some of the following sections might provide some useful information and code to fix problems you may have. From here on, we assume a reasonable level of knowledge with Linux, disk partitioning etc. Screen RotationInstall the 32-bit version of grub by executing the following from a terminal: sudo apt-get install grub-efi-ia32 grub-efi-ia32-bin The Fedora installer is reasonably easy to use. Firstly it will prompt you to select your keyboard layout; after that it will present the “Installation Summary” menu. But I went into the bios - looked around, did nothing (there are no sound controls that I can see) and then booted up.
