I have been using the Framework Laptop (11th gen i5) since the summer 2022. Early on I changed my OS to Ubuntu 22.04. As a learning Linux user and a college student it has sometimes been a roller coaster of troubleshooting issues to say the least.
With some help, I managed to fix some bugs including the Intel wifi firmware getting corrupted by apt update. However, there are still a few noticeable bugs that linger today.
Extremely Sensitive 2-finger Trackpad Scrolling: Scrolling through pages on Firefox, pdf and word documents is insanely sensitive. Not to the point that it is unuseable, but jarring to anyone coming from “normal” scroll rates. I think it is a Wayland issue, but either way I have yet to find a solution. (Note: I have zero scroll issues when on Windows 10)
Function media keys randomly stop working: For whatever reason, the media keys such as volume, screen brightness, etc always seem to eventually stop working and default back to the f keys. Toggling the fn lock seems to have no effect. The only temporary solution I’ve found is to reboot.
Connecting External Displays: Connecting to a TV or projector via HDMI while on Ubuntu always seems to have an issue where the target resolution is too small (maxed at 1024/768) for example which makes the image have a mismatched aspect ratio. Rebooting seems to fix temporarily. (Note: again works fine on Windows 10).
Any thoughts on how I should try fixing these issues? I understand if any of you think this should go on an Ubuntu forum instead of here, but I figure these affect the Framework Laptop just as well personally.
