Hi, we are testing the features now. If all things are going well, it may be released two weeks later or earlier.
That's all depends on the testing result.
Wish luck! ;)

Hi, I see many people succesfully running Elementary and Arch on the LP. I have a 4&64 z8350 and elementary USB and the Antergos one gets stuck at the static background, after giving some errors i don't understand. Do i need to change sometihing in the BIOS to get it working?
In the Antergos screen, if i push the Windows button it creates a shadow/vignette, like some menu had to appear but it does nothing.
First photo is the static background where elementary stucks (either in live or installation), this also happens on Antergos. Second photo is the errors i get when booting the Antergos USB before it gets stuck at the background.

After tweaking some things in the BIOS I could get to use the live version of elementary but with no bluetooth, which is an essential for me because either I don't have mouse and keyboard (I get borrowed wired ones only for the installations). I didn't have success booting Arch, Manjaro or Antergos.
For now I'm sticking to Windows cause it works fairly well and I've yet setted it up for my needs and likes. Next I will try is Xubuntu 16 LTS with the patches previously mentioned (if I get to understand because I'm newbie on linux and kernel stuff). I won't bother trying Unity, I don't like it and prefer some some lightweight DE like Xfce.
I use lattepanda for everyday tasks like Internet and Netflix on my bedroom but I also produce music so I have to get to work an ASIO interface, Bitwig and two MIDI controllers. I would do it mostly for Bitwig cause Reaper in Windows is working well. I'll continue updating and post some photos of the BIOS configs.

Hi again! I could install Xubuntu 16.04, first it had the included 4.13 kernel, so wifi and bluetooth didn't work. Then i installed via dpkg the lattepanda-z8350-64-mainline previously mentioned. It installed the wifi and bluetooth drivers but the kernel won't boot, it gives an error and drops to a shell.
The i installed the 4.12.0-041200-lowlatency kernel from the linux kernel archive, it works fine (and low latency makes a big difference with the BT mouse, it really gets rid of the little latency). But to get it to work with wifi and BT i have to boot that kernel and then install (again) the lattepanda-z8350-64-mainline, wich (again) installs the wifi and BT drivers, so i reboot and it all works, BUT there is a problem: the latte mainline kernel keeps trying to install on every dpkg task due to some errors when trying to install it. Here is the command line copy:
root@LP:/home/nico/Documents# dpkg -i lattepanda-z8350-64-mainline_4.12.0-rc1-1_amd64.deb

To stop this i dpkg --remove lattepanda-z8350-64-mainline, it removes succesfully butit uninstalls the wifi and BT drivers. And i'm repeating this all over again with no happy endings.

So is there a way to keep the 4.12 low latency kernel and install ONLY the wifi and bluetooth drivers without installing the entire kernel? I know the drivers are in the github proyect but i don't know how to add them to the current kernel.

Thanks!

Hey ,

Have you noticed that we've released the Linux Ubuntu.

Yes, i think all we do. I try your iso and the problem is you can´t install even basic things, like wine or many other packages. Seems like your release is closed and dont allow basic updates from ubuntu repositories. Big fail. Another problem is the release is very buggy, inusable. Permanent core dump menssages and problems.

I suggest you a better approach, if you really care this community of latte panda linux users, is create a direct descendent ubuntu (or even better DEBIAN) fork distro, with kernels locked and maintained for your team with the needed stuff to make work ANY device or periperic included in latte panda. Anything else (like this iso release of ubuntu experiment) sucks. Really. no offense, is just a time wasted for yous customers.

Is not very time consuming to do what i propose and is your bussines rigth?

Just a friendly suggestion.

Best regards.

Okay, It's been a long time since any "Updates" have been done for the lattepanda original....
I'm in the process of creating an easy to use package to install Bluetooth, Sound and WiFi drivers on debian systems.

The issue I have run into are
1) the package to update the kernel is excellent and works, but locks to that one kernel and does not allow any updates...
2) When installing Vulkan drivers, The kernel is not recognized and the world comes to an end.......... :o
3) This Linux Thing is all messed up, files everywhere that need updated, added, changed, and need general moral support to work properly.....

I'm currently working on modifying the package provided by mopplayer. I am unable to get ahold of him for help and i hope he does not have an issue with me using a bunch of his work.........

My Goals,
Create a package like his that does not include the Main-Line Kernel but instead Links to it as a dependency. This will allow kernel updates without breaking a bunch of stuff.
Debian has kernel 4.19 available now...... it's pretty...... :lol:

The package will include all the magic files to install in all the magical places. (Firmware and Configs) this should get the file size below 10MB and work on any release of linux compatible with the DEB packages....

Once again Thanks mopplayer, for your hard work.

If anyone has any insight on how mopplayer made the hardware work, Please let me know.....
Im finding i have to recreate much of his work and it would make this much faster......
