Recently installed Xubuntu 20.04. On the live image, the touchpad worked out of the box with PS2 emulation disabled (even right click and two-finger scroll). Suspending also worked fine.
The install has issues however:
The touchpad does not respond to any input whatsoever
Suspend now leaves a small horizontal bar (cursor?) in the upper-left corner, and does not turn off the backlight
Following resume, the graphical session does not respond to any mouse/keyboard input - except cursor movement. It is still somewhat responsive (unplugging the charger creates a notification) but the system only works from a tty
I have never had such different behavior between a live image and install. Has anyone encountered this or have recommendations to fix it?
I noticed that while the live image ran kernel 5.8, the installed version was 5.4. In trying to upgrade, I broke networking and chose to re-install with Pop. Worked out of the box, as it auto-upgraded to 5.13 so I didn’t have to mess with WiFi.
I’m planning on fixing a few other issues with this guide:
