    Did you try it?

    Edit: I tried the live install. No Wi-Fi, no Bluetooth. Touchscreen seems to work well. Audio too.

    Found this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2265190

    Will let you know if I find something…

    Tried Fedora 22 Live, no wifi, no BT, no touch screen,  no pen. SSD, CPU, GPU, Audio, USB and HDMI, battery, dim etc worked, so basically one can install Linux on this and then continue to battle with Realtek.

    Ubuntu 15.10 works really well, except for the Bluetooth. Wacom pressure sensitivity is working too (tested in Gimp).  With normal use (programming and browsing), I’m getting at least 5:30 hours of battery @ 40% brightness. Might give a little more, since there was some battery left at shutdown.

    For WiFi, use the same link Keven Lefebvre posted above: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2265190
    If anyone gets BT to work, let us know.

    Bluetooth works too. All thanks to Larry Finger.

    1. Get the code from https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723au_bt
    2. Switch to the kernel branch
    3. make
    4. sudo make install

    Yup, everything works. Typing this on a Logitech K480 bluetooth keyboard.

    Has anyone had any success booting a linux distro from a microSD card? I’ve tested Ubuntu 15.10, Fedora Workstation 23, and Kali Linux 2.0 from a USB and they all work. The problem comes when I install a distro to a microSD card and try to boot. It just gets stuck at the bios logo. Can anyone help?

    Hi, don’t know what I am missing but:
    I got my wi-fi working, but not touchscreen or bluetooth. I have followed the github suggested by Jeswin Kumar but it gives me make errors, also I have nothing on touchscreens.

    I am using i7 Stylus with Ubuntu 15.10

    Hi Gerrit, this GitHub issue is very similar to yours: https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723au_bt/issues/16

    Can you try the “new” branch (git checkout new) as lwfinger suggests? I’ll update the post above after you get it working.

    Hi Jeswin,

    My git command was kind of wrong.

    Have to use “git checkout origin/kernel” instead of “git checkout kernel”.

    The screen started working after apt-get update && apt-get upgrade.

    Thanks for your input  🙂

    Thinking of changing to Linux but I have a question about the on screen keyboard. Will it pop up when you use the device without the keyboard to unlock it?

    I usually just use the tablet without the keyboard, so if I wake the device, the on screen keyboard should work so I can log in without the keyboard?

    FYI, Ubuntu just released an update to v14.04 ( 14.04.4) with upgraded kernel v4.2 (same as in Ubuntu 15.10) and includes a beta of “Ubuntu Touch”  which should help tablet input. Probably various driver updates in there as well…
