Linux Mint Tablet PC?

Post by mattzees » Sun Nov 04, 2018 11:01 pm

Is anyone successfully running Mint 19 on a tablet PC?

Or a better question might be, is there a tablet PC that will run Mint 19 well?

Thanks.

I doubt that... the question is not about graphical tablets (the input device for drawing), but about tablet PCs (the laptop without a keyboard).

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

Yes, to clarify, I'm not interested in a drawing tablet. I'm interested in a tablet PC, which is like a laptop with a touch-screen and no keyboard. Remember the Samsung Slate PCs? Like that.

Mint will NOT run on any tablet that has an ARM cpu processor. Only x86.

Yes, the PCs I'm asking about generally run on x86 or amd64 CPUs. I'm not asking about Android hardware.

I will install LM19 on a Acer Switch 3 with an Intel 4-Quad processor this week. Will also try "touchegg" which is in the repositories and adds gestures. Will report on my results - if any!
