Ubuntu 18 on ASUS ROG GX800VH

Has anyone tried Ubuntu 18 on the ASUS ROG GX800VH? I’m currently running Ubuntu just fine on an ASUS ROG G73SW and just wanted to know if it is worth upgrading to a refurbisehd GX800VH (about $ 3K) or just going with a new System 76 Bonobo (about $ 5K).

FYI: I do some extreme programming requiring serious memory and looking for 64GB system hopefully with Whisky-Lake Hexa Core.. but I refuse to run Windows.

How to use two external monitors on a ASUS ZenBook 13 UX333FA laptop?

I recently purchased an ASUS ZenBook 13 UX333FA which I actually really like besides one issue, which is I can not hook up two external monitors to this device. You will see it has HDMI out + a USB-C port, however, apparently this device does not support DisplayPort over USB-C and thus I can’t figure out how to hook-up a second external monitor.

I have purchased the following adapters without any luck:

  • USB-C to VGA
  • USB-C to HDMI
  • USB 3.0 (regular) to VGA {this works, but is very distorted and only works half the time}

Do you all have any suggestions on a software or hardware solution I can use to get both my external monitors working + my internal laptop screen?

Where can I get Asus 510ua-ds71 drivers for USB 3.0 and wirlesse windows 7?

I have recently bought a new ASUS VivoBook S S510UA-DS71 Ultra Thin Laptop, i7-8550U processor, 8GB DDR4, 128GB+1TB. I changed the bios to enable csm and disabled secure boot. Finally I got windows 7 installed on the 1Tb disk. But a have no working wifi and no usb 3.0. But I found a work around i simply download the drivers on my windows 10 in the 128gb ssd disk and get them in windows 7. But I can’t find the proper drivers since asus does not support windows 7 on my notebook. I install the drivers with my keyboard. I really need the wifi driver installed and the USB 3.0 working so I can finally use a mouse where can i download does two drivers please help I am desperate.

How to install fan drivers for ASUS FX504 laptop on ubuntu 18.04?

I have ASUS FX504GD having ubuntu 18.04.1 and kernel 4.20 .

For some reason I am not able to find fan drivers for ubuntu. This laptop has a dual fan.

I tried installing asus_fan from https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/fan_speed_control#Asus_laptops but having no luck since this module works only for the older Asus laptops.

This is the output I get after running sensors command

I have tried following this guide https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2214110.

However, i cannot find any broadcom hardware using lspci -nn -d 14e4:.

A blue light is solid, indicating my wifi card is connected.

Multiple WANs with two Asus Routers

Here is my setup

network topology

Router 1: 192.168.1.1 subnet: 255.255.255.0

Router 2: IP leased from Router 1: 192.168.1.11. Own IP is 10.0.0.1 subnet: 255.0.0.0

Computer A: plugged into Router 1 with IP 192.168.1.189

Computer B: plugged into Router 2 with IP 10.0.0.79

I have a static route added to Router 1: 10.0.0.0, subnet 255.0.0.0 to gateway 192.168.1.11

I also put 10.0.0.79 in Router 2’s DMZ

I can’t ping from Computer A to Computer B, nor SMB to it.

Any ideas?

Router 2 is always configured to connect via OpenVPN as external Computer B traffic should always go through OpenVPN.

Can’t install Ubuntu on ASUS laptop

I’ve been trying to dual boot windows 10 and Ubuntu on my ASUS x556u laptop. When I get to ‘Updates and other software’ the installer freezes and is basically stuck loading.

The laptop has 8gb of ram, and intel i5 6200u and an nvidia 940m.

I’ve tried adding nouveau.modeset=0 after splash screen however, this doesn’t help.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Touch screen on a ASUS Q302L

I´m quite new to Linux and to Ubuntu. A week ago i decided to give it a shot and to be honest i really like the Ubuntu OS.

Out of the box is worked quite nice but there is one thing which I can´t get to work, the touchscreen.

I have a ASUS Q302l which was at the time a Best buy exclusive. I can´t find a lot for this laptop on the internet and i have spend hours now searching for a solution but didn’t succeed yet.

I’m new to the command line rule but this is what I already tried:

Your help would be appreciated!!!
