You can enter any specific notes with running Linux on the Asus Eee PC 1215T here.


With Fedora 15 almost everything worked right from the start –except wireless. I tried every available driver both binary and complied from source and nothing worked. In the end I installed Fedora 16 beta which also does not ship with a working wireless driver, but works with the broadcom-sta driver available from the the Broadcom website.

Lubuntu 14.10 works out of the box, no problem at all, much faster that Ubuntu. Ubuntu with Unity is very slow, impossible to work with.

I tested nearly all distros :D

Ubuntu 12.4: not so good. graphic problem could be solved by installing gallium driver. slow wifi by changing some setting is solvable
Mint: slow
fedora 17: wifi and graphic problem (Im not so familiar with fedora)
Ubuntu 12.10: occasional wifi problem. very slow with unity
opensuse: very slow
jolicloud: unsupported. over heat problem (strange)

so I recommend to os for this laptop

1: Lubuntu 12.4: very fast. wifi is great. graphic works fine, very fast and stable (need help? email me (
2. windows 8 core version. all the things works fine and even better than win7.

I try to install Ubuntu 12.04, and graphics is total unsupported, freeze a lot. I also test with Debian, linuxmid, Megaia and always the same,freeze.
