I would like my tablet to run any linux distro (debian, ubuntu or linux mint). I have tried ubuntu live but neither wifi nor sound work. Do you know any solution?
I found this on github but doesn t work. https://github.com/hadess/rtl8723bs

I have been testing this “drivers” but it doesn’t work. I have tested it on a live ubuntu version with persistent changes.November 22, 2016 at 10:54 am #57257Hans SprungfeldParticipant

Obviously you did it wrong then. I said read the post, there is all you need to know, including people telling it works. That you put “drivers” is enough said already. Maybe Linux isn’t the right OS for you.November 23, 2016 at 4:54 pm #57332brainvisionParticipant

don’t understand why you are always so angry, Hans.. I noticed more than once that you just reply to let people know that you are able to do things better than the person who asked! You give a reply and if someone did not get you soon (whatever the reason) you reply once more to say: read my reply! why do you go around forums then? To explain stuff to people with two lines?
Don’t know if linux is not for mimozin, but it seems to me that forums are not for you, instead.. bad attitudes do not help.
sorry for the OTNovember 23, 2016 at 5:09 pm #57335
Obviously, I’m not an expert of linux, but I use it usually at home (in my job I have to use windows). What I want to say is that I know the bases of linux in a “normal” PC, but this tablet isn’t it so it will be nice that someone tries to help me (if it’s possible).

never tried to launch linux here into my tablet, never used ubuntu but only slackware and debian, so I’ll try to help as possible..
So you said you installed (with deb package or manually make them) the driver correctly and then? Is the driver running? Check with lsmod if the driver is properly loaded..
also it seems to me that driver are dkms so kernel headers are needed, as hans told you..
EDIT: found this too http://techtablets.com/forum/topic/linux-on-atom-based-devices/ – pretty sure there more users will be able to help you 😉December 2, 2016 at 8:09 pm #58012JParticipant
