[UBUNTU MATE] 19.10 Eoan (Beta) Touchscreen works out of the box with Bios v0.24

Hi,

Some good news.

I’ve installed Ubuntu MATE 19.10 on mine. Apart from the touch screen, everything else works “out of the box”. 19.04 should work too.

I’ll prepare a bespoke Ubuntu MATE image for the P2 Max soon that will hopefully include a fix for the touch screen.

Please do so. I want Linux on mine and all working. Thank you.

Ubuntu Mate 19.04 (personally using on live usb) and I believe the 19.10 alpha MicroPC build (personally not tried) works out of the box except touchscreen but the touchscreen fix is here

The bespoke p2 max Ubuntu mate build (when available) will include this hopefully.

Hi all

Just a quick update.
I have today flashed BIOS to v.0.24
I have then formatted the Ubuntu MATE alpha partition and reinstalled Ubuntu MATE Eoan (19.10 Beta)
Touchscreen works out of the box, a quick few minutes play and everything else seems to be working ok.

(Caveat, I have not had time to test power management / resume from standby / battery performance or fan noise tweaks)

Hope this is good news for people.
