Kernel Update and Xubuntu 16.04.3 Image

  |   Source

I have build the latest kernel (4.13.0-rc5+) from jwrdegoedes github repository [1] and merged it into the package source. This kernel fixes issues with the battery detection and also seems to improve display functionality for me.

I also added some improvements to the package repository yesterday and today:

  • merged patch for gpd-fan service
  • added touchegg for multi-touch support

To update to the new kernel and features, please call

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

on your gpd-pocket.

I also have updated the Xubuntu build to version 16.04.3. You can download it here:
