DebianOn is an effort to document how to install, configure and use Debian on some specific hardware. Therefore potential buyers would know if that hardware is supported and owners would know how get the best out of that hardware.

The purpose is not to duplicate the Debian Official Documentation, but to document how to install Debian on some specific hardware.

Important Note

Installing Debian

Both Jessie and Stretch install just fine. For 3D acceleration on Jessie, see additional configuration below.

Configuration

Display

Jessie

External Display

When connecting an external monitor using the mini Display Port (and probably HDMI as well), the primary display may disengage and only output on the external monitor. Until this hack is replaced with a better solution, you can use the following script to extend the display to the external monitor:

xrandr --output eDP1 --mode 1680x1050
xrandr --output eDP1 --mode 1920x1080
xrandr --output DP1 --above eDP1

This script simply changes the primary display's resolution to a lower resolution and then back to the default. Then it sets the external display to be above the primary display. This seems to "wake up" the primary display. This process works best when the external display is attached after the laptop has booted up and you are logged in.

Stretch

WiFi
