Installing Ubuntu 16.04 on a Dell Inspiron 14

Posted 11-03-2016 at 06:40 AM by trevorparsons

tl;dr version: To get Ubuntu installed on the Inspiron 14 with the Realtek wifi working, leave the machine's setup as it is by default (UEFI boot mode, Secure Boot enabled), run the Ubuntu installer, connect to wifi when that's offered, but don't accept the option to install third-party drivers for graphics and wireless.

Mex Linux is no longer based on Linux Mint. MeX Build 161030 is based only on Debian 8.6 and Ubuntu 16.04.1. I have replaced the original kernel with “my” special kernel 4.8.0-25-exton. All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 161030. This version of MeX uses Cinnamon 3.0.7. Linux Mint 18 also uses Cinnamon 3.0.7 as Desktop environment.

Updated 12-15-2016 at 07:37 PM by flshope (Add to list of Ubuntu 16.04 anomalies)

I have two machines running Ubuntu, one a 5-year old Pogo Linux desktop ("Pogo2011" running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS) and the other an 8-year old HP notebook ("HP2008" running Ubuntu 14.04). To date, I have gone through 10 Ubuntu installs or major version upgrades (including 4 on a 2003 Pogo Linux desktop, which I finally moved to Debian to keep it alive ("Pogo2003" running Debian 8.6)).

It has been my experience that Ubuntu OS upgrades do not generally produce...
