Post by Boca » Fri Jul 20, 2018 12:21 pm


does anyone have any experience of or thoughts on the suitability of :-

Linx 12X64-12.5-inch Tablet with Detachable Keyboard Intel Atom x5-Z8350/1.44 GHz (1.92 GHz Turbo) Quad Core Processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage,

for Mint preferably 19 XFCE or Mate

It has the atom processor which I have seen recommended on the forum for Linux.

Seems nothing wrong with it, the Mint 19 kernel supports it in principle. I have no experience with touchscreen support though.

Thoroughly test it out via the live USB before you install it.
Tune up your LM 19.x: ppa:gm10/linuxmint-tools
