Have installed Linux Mint (Cinnamon) 17 on the X102BA, and have found that everything seems to work quite well. Much more usable with 2 GB RAM than Windows 8.1! The only issue is that so far Mint's touchscreen support doesn't seem to support swipe scrolling, only touch to click. That being said, the touchpad is far more usable under Linux.

My Chromebook is still a faster, nicer user experience, but when I need to be assured of the flexibility to do whatever I need on the road, this computer running Linux may now replace the Chromebook more often when I'm packing a lightweight laptop. Running Windows 8.1 this computer was torture to use… with Linux this computer is worth owning.

The touchpad doesn't do multitouch or scrolling. It's detected as a PS/2 Elantech Touchpad, there are kernel patches that make it synaptics compatible, but not from stock 13.10 kernel.

Hi Dmitry,

I wrote up some notes on this laptop at

Do you have working brightness control?

I found I had it stuck on max brightness with the opensource driver, or was unable to suspend using the fglrx driver.

Have just installed Ubuntu 13.10. Vga with radeon driver full resolution, Wifi, Usb, touchpad, touchscreen, keyboard, webcam, sound are working from the box
