Re: MX 16 on a Chromebook

Well. That was a washout. Write protect is still enabled. If I can ever get it disabled. I will never unjumper that POS again.
I don't want protection.

Re: MX 16 on a Chromebook

Re: wacom tablet not recognized

Not sure what to say here. Because I will be comparing apples to pineapples. I have Dell XT2 Touchscreen Laprop that comes with a wacom pen. The kernel supports my touchscreen out of the box. The distro supports my removable wacom pen that fits in a retractable slot in the laptop. Like I said. Apple...

Re: Laptop Freezes

Re: Laptop Freezes
