Hello everybody,
I hope I'm in the right place.
I've recently bought a Dell XPS 13 9370 machine.
Unfortunately, after 1 week my ssd has gone down and they substitute it.
The replacemente piece was sent with w10, even I've bought a machine with ubuntu. From Dell website, even inserting the service tag, is IMPOSSIBLE to download the ubuntu 16.04 recovery image for DELL XPS 9370. Is there anyone that woul share a recovery image with me, thus helping to solve my problem?
Thanx in advance.

Woo hooo. they're here! the Precision 3530, 5530, 7530 and 7730 mobile workstations. Ubuntu preloaded, RHEL certified

Just upgraded to 18.04 on my XPS13 dev edition L322X
and now I can't adjust the screen brightness anymore..... OMG. Why does this issue seem to pop up with every (new) LTS version of Ubuntu.
I would think that at least the xps13 would work without issues....

Is there a way to switch of the NVIDIA card on my Precision 5520 so that my laptop consumes less power? Preferably not in bios but during a session.

Does someone now of a anti-glare filter (reasonably priced) for use with a Precision 5520 glossy UHD display?

Another question: My Precision 5520 shows a discharge rate of 25 Watt being idle. That seems a bit high, or is it what one would expect? (Running Ubuntu 18.04 Beta 2)

I just received my Precision 5520 running Ubuntu. However, it seems that the USB-C LAN dongle does not work. Is there a way to fix this?

Has anyone already installed the latest Dell bios update 2.5.1 on a XPS 13 9360 (Linux edition)? As the bios update contains some Spectre fixes, and considering all the stories about Spectre (and/or Meltdown) updates being rushed out and causing breakage, I became a bit "cautious" :)


A question: I ordered a Precision 5520 for use with Linux but it will not come with Ubuntu preinstalled. Can I just download the normal Ubuntu, or does Dell have a special Linux image with additional drivers?

Also, will Ubuntu 18.04 also work out of the box on my Precision 5520?

I figure people here would get a kick out of this. Yes, Dell once had its own Unix. Someone wrote about its history here: http://technologists.com/notes/2008/01/10/a-brief-history-of-dell-unix/
A blast from the past -- Dell's non-Windows history. I finally found someone with this, and now we need to find a way to read two ancient media formats...
