LG Gram 17 - flawless install - 5.4.6-2-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Dec 24 15:55:20 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I read lots of problems with this laptop trying to get it to install. I turned off secure boot, shrunk the windows partition and let the boot up happen. Then I installed from a live system, it rebooted and all is well.

The only thing not working out of the box is the fingerprint reader (so far). Everything else works.

So far I'm not seeing the fabled "19 hour battery life" I'd like to know how they did that!
