Linux Support for hp 15-af008ax

15-af008ax
Linux

I am looking forward to buying an HP 15-af008ax for a friend. I am trying to figure out if the device is compatible with Ubuntu.  I plan on making a dual-boot system with windows 10 and Ubuntu. 

Has someone on this forum used Ubuntu/Any Other Linux OS on this laptop? How was your experience with regards to drivers and features?

 

If not, could someone tell me what the exact model numbers for the bluetooth and network cards for this device are? In fact, a detailed specification sheet would be great.

I had the same issue. Using kate or other text editor you need to set the wifi regulatory domain, which is blank by default.

 

sudo kate /etc/default/crda
REGDOMAIN=US
