Is Ubuntu fully supported on Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series (AMD A9 Dual core)?

My sister has this Dell laptop and is having Windows 10 pre-installed. She is planning to switch to Ubuntu since Windows is making her life very hard.

I just want to check, if this Dell laptop is fully supported by Ubuntu – because, the wifi drivers on Windows has some issues, system is very slow, processor is AMD.

Below are the details of the laptop:

Dell Inspiron 15 3000 APU Dual Core A9 – 3565 laptop

6 GB – 1 TB HDD – Windows 10 Home

Thanks!

Column Formatting elmType of div not fully filling field

I have formatting on a column which uses a background color for a status. I am using the elmType of div to complete this. I have another field for comments that is multi line and allows for 6 lines of text. When there are two lines of text in the comments field the the div for the status field fully fills it. When a third line of text is entered the div stops and no longer fills the status field vertically.

It does not seem to matter if I add the formatting to the status column before or after the comments have been added. I have tried using the fill style and it does not work with my current JSON. I am able to get it to work if I adjust the min-height style but then all my row will be the height that height.

UPDATE 5/21/2018 (Added JSON and screenshot)

Is it really possible to intrude a fully ENCRYPTED Hard Drive? (Encrypted since installation of ubuntu 18.04 OS)

So I`m using ubuntu 18.04 LTS almost on every machine that I use in my lifetime.. WHether for programming, storing sensitive information, financial transaction, entertainment so on and so forth!!..

so let me know is it possible (for hackers) to invade and get access over the files and data of my hard drive (every hard drive is encrypted during installation itself)

is there any other way in Linux to master encrypt (encrypt entire hard drive) for non-OS partitions and drives?..

Also, asking basic question, why it`s not possible to change encrypted passwords after installing OS?.

Upgrading a 16.04 server to 18.04 with a secondary fully encrypted drive

As per the upgrade notes:

N.B., If you require multipath, full-disk encryption, or the ability to re-using existing partitions, you will want to continue to use the alternate installer which can be downloaded from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/18.04/release/ As of 18.04.1, the Subiquity server installer now supports LVM, RAID, vlans, and bonds.

I have an existing ubuntu server 16.04. It has 2 hard drives. The boot and OS are on the first without encryption. It also has an encrypted storage drive that I manually mount.

My command line is offering to upgrade to 18.04 and I wouldn’t mind just for the PHP 7.2 support (might bump that to 7.3). However the patch notes have me a bit worried. Would I still be able to manually mount my fully encrypted drive if I ran “do-release-upgrade’?

It also said I cannot reuse existing partitions. If I cannot use existing partitions what does it do to them? Merge them? Remake them?

I am just trying to get a good idea of what to expect when upgrading.

Want to install Ubuntu fully portable on an external hard drive. Should I be afraid that I’ll mess up my main drive?

I love Ubuntu and I really want it installed somewhere, however my laptop is pretty low on disk storage, and I would like to have it on an external drive. Just like a Live CD, but it’s actually storing my files etc.

Right now when I’m writing this, I am running a live session. There are 3 drives connected to the laptop: The main one (i cannot disconnect it), a 8GB flash drive I am using to run Ubuntu, and the drive I want Ubuntu to be installed to. Strangely, running “sudo fdisk -l” prints out only two drives, which appear to be the flash and the installation destination drives (my main pc’s drive is missing). The same is shown in ubiquity.

The only disk shown here is the disk I wish to install to.

If I ran the installation, should I be worried about messing up my main drive?

TL;DR – Want a full ubuntu installation on a portable drive. Ubuntu can’t detect my pc’s main drive. If I run the installation, can it ruin my main drive by any chance?

I’m really sorry for this post, I’m just trying to play safe.

Is Opal-based full disk encryption fully working for Linux?

I’d like to know whether I can realistically use hardware based full disk encryption with Linux, both at start-up after putting the computer to sleep.

Ideally I would like it to just work, regardless of what OS is running, at the BIOS level. I would like to manage the password purely via the BIOS and not need to run any utility e.g. sedutil.
