My new Tuxedo Aura laptop has finally arrived. My first impression is that the hardware is great.
I wasn’t too keen on the OS it came with so put Pop OS on there, which is an OS I love. Unfortunately I can’t yet get the bluetooth working. I have used bluetooth on every machine I have ever used with Linux, which is quite a few, without any issues at all. The first time I buy hardware claiming to be 100% Linux compatible and I get hardware issues. How ironic. I have spent an hour or so trying to add tuxedos repos to the Pop shop and maybe its there but I still can’t see any way of installing the Tuxedo Control centre. I’m am sure I’ll get there but right now I am kind of upset about it.
Right now I am left with a dilema. Either Stick with Pop OS and my own partition set up*, reinstall Tuxedo OS or whatever its called, Its Ubuntu LTS with Budgie but not the same as Vanilla Ubuntu Budgie. Or pick something else. A fourth option is to go with Tuxedo OS and install Gnome vanilla over the top and configure it like Pop OS. (and resize the partitions*)
*Another issue with the default stock install is that the swap is 8GB, much less that the ram size so Suspend to disk probably wont work if more than 8GB of RAM is “in use”.
Anyway I’m not having buyers regret just yet, I just feel I have more issues than I was hoping for.
