Switched to Pop!_OS

Hello all,
I recently purchased an HP gaming laptop and installed Zorin 15 Ultimate and could not get certain hardware to work (screen res and WiFi) so I had to switch to Pop_OS 20.10 Nvidia iso and everything works. Note Pop_OS has a standard and a Nvidia iso image.

Laptop HW:
Ryzen 5 4600H
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650
RealTek 8822cu WiFi

Do miss Zorins UI. :sob:

Out of curiosity… I would check what Kernel you are running in Pop_OS and see if it is 5.5 or 5.6 or above.
If so, there’s your solution.
If you like, you could install a newer Kernel on Zorin 15 Ultimate and see if that resolves your issues.

Running I can def try but what about the Nvidia drivers. Pop_OS! 20.10 has two iso, one specifically for Nvidia hw.


So I reinstalled Zorin OS, boy I do miss it compared to Pop! OS. I tried updating the kernel to 5.8.x with no luck. I Installed Mint 20.1 “Ulyssa” - Cinnamon (Edge, 64-bit) (Edge has additional drivers for newer HW) and it’s working well. Much friendlier GUI than Pop! OS but not as awesome as Zorin OS. :disappointed_relieved:
