I’m a new member here and this is my first post. Greetings to all.
I want to install Lubuntu 22.04.2 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish) in my little Lenovo 11 inch (screen) laptop.
Here is the specs:
Device name: Lenovo
Processor: Intel Celeron N4120 CPU @ 1.10GHz 1.10 GHz
Installed RAM: 8.00 GB (7.80 GB usable)
Hard Drive: 117 Gigabytes
Intel Wireless-AC 9260 160MHz
11e 5th Gen (Type 20LR, 20LQ) Laptop (ThinkPad) - Type 20LQ
I was running Windows 11 Home Edition Version 22H2. It was not cutting the mustard. It was way too slow doing everything.
I have already downloaded Lubuntu 22.04.2 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish) ISO and installed it on my thumb drive and even booted it. I was little surprised that even from the thumb drive my Bluetooth worked and recognized my ThinkPad mouse instantly. But of course you can’t use the Wi-Fi until it’s installed and by then it’s too late to go back (easily).
Here is my problem. I’m worried about the Wi-Fi not working or not being usable along with the camera and speakers etc. So am I worrying unnecessarily or does Lubuntu recognize the hardware OK on new/newer PC’s? My computer is about 6 months old. Do you think I’ll have hardware issues? I was able to find my Windows 11 key and I backed up all my drivers just in case I have to re-install it but I really don’t want to.
I’ve used Linux Mint before on an old HP Pavilion and it worked OK but the Wi-Fi never did work right. And about 4 months ago I bought another Lenovo Linux certified ThinkPad 16 and I’m running Kubuntu and I’m really loving it. So I have some Linux experience but I’m no expert.
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks.
