I am a brand new user of this OS and to Linux in general. I am normally a big Apple guy and I mainly use an iPad Pro for all of my work (I'm a school principal and the portability is crucial). However, my school is a Google school and I cannot use some of the apps on my iPad Pro (the new Google Sites and Google Classroom). So, I bought a cheap Windows laptop for those needs. However, I quickly realized how much I hated Windows, so I decided to give this OS a try after a friend recommended it to me.
I did not see my computer on the certified model list (it's an Asus X407M), but I decided to give it a try anyways. Everything seems to be working very well, except for:
- If I use the touch pad to scroll through a website, I cannot then switch to my mouse and scroll with my mouse wheel, even if I change web pages. I have to completely close the tab to be able to use my mouse's scroll wheel
- There's an annoying flicker at the very top of my screen when the computer processes something. It's like a black strip across the very top that is there for 1/4 of a second. I think it's a driver problem as this did not happen on Windows 10. It happens every five minutes or so
- When I played YouTube videos, the audio would work fine, but the video was just a gray blob. I did some searching and learned that turning of hardware acceleration worked and it did for me
I'm not necessarily looking for fixes to these problems (if you have solutions, that would be awesome), but rather sharing this information to see if it would be helpful to the community. I would much rather put up with these minor issues than reinstalling Windows.
