Asus GL752VW

Introduction

This is a compatibility guide to running Linux with the Asus GL752VW laptop. If you have the Asus GL752VW and are running Linux on it, please consider editing this page or adding a comment below with your compatibility details. By contributing you will help other people running this laptop or trying to make a decision on whether to buy it or not.

The ASUS GL752VW-DH71 touchpad will not work out-of-box; you must update to kernel 4.3. Kernel 4.4 may cause booting to lock up. Installing the closed-source Nvidia driver can be difficult (for some users, impossible) on Fedora. Mint 17.3 Cinnamon is able to run well on this laptop if you can use a mouse to install and update the computer to kernel 4.3. PS4 controllers will not work out-of-box, but they can be used via ds4drv. HDMI will work perfectly after the kernel upgrade. The keyboard light works. Games run very smoothly, albeit *slightly* less smoothly than they run on the Windows partition. Switching between Windows and Linux (i.e., to Windows and back to Linux) may cause the touchpad to become nonfunctional again, requiring a reinstallation of the kernel; thus, this might not be a good computer for someone who NEEDS to dual-boot Windows and Linux.

Bumblebee + Nouveau works pretty well in Fedora, for those who are willing to settle for medium settings. The proprietary driver on Mint can run L4D2 on high and very high, just as it runs on the Windows partition, although sometimes there seems to be a “warmup period” of sorts, during which games will not run as smoothly as they do on the Windows partition (if you keep it).
