Quick Question, has anyone ran into any issues with USB C hubs while running any flavor of Linux?

Hub in question is:

Picked it up 2weeks ago and it's been great with ChromeOS so far, but I would like to keep using it once I make the switch over to Linux

only issue I have had is mouse connectivity. It is intermittent.  HD's and flash drives work fine, fast and reliably.

Have you guys seen the new G4 model from HP? It allows virtual desktops without flashing Linux or crouton.... Think this is something we'll get on the Pixel? Do we have it? Haven't looked into it more as sense I was already running ubuntu...

+Alan Evans OK, good to know. I have one of those Zotac Zboxes (similar to NUC) and I think I will keep it around for exactly the purpose you describe. My Pixel is arriving in 2 weeks.

Been searching around for hours and no luck, installed Mint Cinnamon 17.1 with kernel and the touchpad doesn't work. Anyone have any solutions?

Not sure if it's been posted here yet, but removing the bottom of the Pixel 2 is easier than the first gen pixel. This is good to know if you decide to remove the write protect screw to install Linux without all the boot screens. (I'm gonna try this in about a week or so. Need a few screwdrivers first)

‘ Google’s announcement this morning of the Chromebook Pixel 2 has sparked some interest in what’s the highest end hardware you can currently buy on a Chromebook. The body is the same but under that hood beats a different, more powerful heart and a Google Chromebook engineer has shed some light on those internals over on reddit. redditor /u/iceblink hit[Read More...]

Not sure it it was covered already and we got good results, but any on notice a lack of speed on the SD card slot? Would it be better if I used a USB 3.0 card and reader itself? 
Jaxon Lee's profile photoJake Wegman's profile photo
It's been said a bazillion times; the SD card slot is connected via USB 2 (as Broadwell only supports 4 USB 3.x ports which are otherwise used by the two USB-C, and USB-A connectors).

Anyone using a laptop riser for their Pixel 2? Was looking into some.... Came across this but $50 is a bit too steep for a stand.....

I use that stand. It's worth the money. I works awesome, and it doesn't look out of place with or without a laptop on it.
