The Penguin X2 Mini Edition Desktop Documentation

Getting Trisquel 11 working on the Penguin X2 Mini Edition Desktop

There are issues with Trisquel 11 from website, and similar Ubuntu 22.04 based distributions supporting the 13th generation due to outdated graphics stack and kernel, but these can be worked around by utilizing a remastered image that contains an updated kernel and graphics stack. Besides this there is a fix that must be applied after a remastered install is performed. You will still need to update the kernel after the install.

To get power management and other functionality working fully under Trisquel 11 do the following (must be used in conjunction with a remastered disc):

0. Download the remastered installation media and install the distribution:

Trisquel 11 remastered

Note: You need to be connected to the internet to install Trisquel 11 or Trisquel will show uefi grub related error messages.


1. After installation and reboot open a terminal window and run the follow command:

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

2. Find the line that reads ‘GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT‘ and append ‘ i915.enable_guc=0’ to the end (without the quotes)

Save it, to save the file: CTRL+X, Y, ENTER

3. Now, update your grub file, install the latest LTS enablement stack kernel and reboot.

sudo update-grub

sudo apt install linux-image-generic-hwe-22.04-edge

sudo reboot

After rebooting you will have 3d accelerated graphics, power management support, and full support for your new hardware.
