This will serve to confirm the posting by lattepanda_lover on Wed Mar 15, 2017 at 7:45 pm . I am using a 4-64 unit running 64 bit software.
I have been using his version of Ubuntu: ( https://goo.gl/ePa3Nd
) for a couple weeks now with no significant issues.
The only known non-functional item is Bluetooth. (I tried the moderator posting. Didn’t work for me. Maybe the Linuxium patches made it incompatible?)
1.) HDMI video and audio work fine.
2.) By selecting the correct display from settings, all but the most minor traces of cursor and display stability have vanished.
3.) USB is fully functional, both 2 & 3.
4.) The micro SD card slot works fine as long as you leave a card in it when you boot the LattePanda. Don’t forget the previously posted bios tweak: South Bridge>LPSS & SCC Configuration > SCC SD Card Support > PCI
5.) WIFi works fine on both high and low bands. I’m currently using the LattePanda on the upper end of the 5Ghz band with no known issues.
6.) No known issue with the wired network jack.
7.) I have setup and been using Samba with a networked Windows 7 computer and can both transfer and play files remotely on the windows machine.
8.) I have setup and used my Windows 98 vintage scanner (Microtek ScanMaker X6) with no known issues. (Simple Scan and Xsane both work.)
9.) I have used an USB DVD player connected directly to the LattePanda to play DVDs with no issues. (I’m fond of VLC here.)
I had previously experimented with Xubuntu 16.04.2 and 17.04 Beta 1 Versions from Linuxium. I never could get the notification area to display. (It was grayed out in the Panel Customization area in Xubuntu. Loads but does not display.) I was also having screen stability issues (ghosting cursors) and both wired and wireless networking was dropping Flash videos.
I have not tried the 17.04 Beta 1 Unity version of Ubuntu form Linuxium. We’re so close to the formal release of 17.04 (April 13th.), I decided I’d wait to get out of Beta before giving it another shot. (Obviously Linuxium will need a few days to put in the necessary patches.)
Thermal issues: Using my dual fan approach, https://youtu.be/oSE7_Hd6vEs
my Latte Panda boots at about 40-42C and then settles out and runs at 31-34C. (House is at 22C.) I have noted no thermal, issues with the unit using this approach.
