Setting up Xubuntu in Lenovo Flex2 14D

Steps to do to get a working Xubuntu release on this laptop.

Lenovo Flex2 14D is a good laptop with decent build quality, light weight, 14" screen and touch screen for those who like it. With AMD A6 processor version, it is reasonably priced too.

It comes pre-loaded wth Windows 8.1 and a bunch of Lenovo software. If you want to get this to dual boot with Ubuntu Linux, here are the specific fixes you need to do.


Post Installation

Get Wifi Working

Get Display Driver Working

Get Better Battery Life

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xfce4-power-manager light-locker-settings

After all these, I had a system I am comfortable with. Install additional software you might want to use.
