I'm sorry, but we here are not equipped to provide detailed Linux support.

HP only warranties their PCs for usage with the OS that comes preinstalled. IF you replace that with Linux, or add a Linux OS, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- as HP provides Linux assistance only on Redhat and then only to commercial customers.

The primary "challenge" to using Linux on any HP PC is the availability of Linux drivers. Any hardware that does not work will then range from simple (if there are Linux drivers available) to impossible (if there are NO Linux drivers available) to fix.

Since HP does not provide Linux drivers, your best bet for Linux support is to contact the support forum for the Linux distro you are using  -- in this case, the Ubuntu Forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/


Folks on Linux support forums have experience using a variety of machines with Linux and know a lot about driver and installation issues. You will be able to get sound and detailed help there.

Good Luck

Thaks for your reply. I have Linux running correctly on Two HP laptops ond One HP Workstation. HP kit is good and I am certain there are hundreds of thousands of linux versions running on HP kit. Have a look at the growth of Linux across the world.

Even Microsoft has bought into it. Its not just for commercial bodies. Suggest you support Linux as well as you support Windows.

KindRegards

First off, Microsoft actually does NOT support Linux; instead, they support WSL -- which is their product.  Folks on Linux forums have installed this and then discovered, surprise, that when they try to Update their so-called Linux installation, it invariably fails -- and that's because it's not actually Linux.

 

Second, supporting Linux costs every bit as much as does Windows -- as it involves custom-writing apps and drivers -- and that is for a community that is a very small percentage of the installed personal computer base.  So, it does not make sound economic sense to double your support costs for what amounts to probably no more than 5% of your customer base.
