Got this up on my Dell XPS 15 and thought I’d post what is not working yet for anyone else that may also want to install this distro flavor on similar hardware.
Display Resolution - the initial resolution came up at 3840x2160 but could not find any utility in the Deepin settings panel to change the scaling. Additionally all supported resolutions are listed in the Deepin settings panel along with the currently set resolution being highlighted however clicking different resolutions doesn’t have any effect and thus upon login I have to execute xrandr -s 2880x1620 to have usable real estate. I’ve opened a thread here for help on this here: forum.manjaro.org/t/permanent-display-resolution-xps15/16243
Resume - I’ve read about issues w/ the 4.4 kernel having issues with suspend/hibernate so I disabled the “computer suspend” option in Deepin settings panel and left the display set to 15min, If the display suspends I can resume via keyboard/tracpad but if I close the lid, no bueno. Here’s a thread I opened for tracking this issue: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/dell-xps15-wont-resume-after-lid-close/16427
Taskbar - Network doesn’t update and still shows no network even after being connected. Connecting to wifi was no as intuitive where if you try to connect to a new AP, it won’t intuitively prompt for a key but rather you must first use the Deepin settings panel and expand the wireless network you wish to connect to first, enter the password into those expanded settings and then click save. Clicking save also jumps right into attempting to connect so if you’re already on one wireless network and simply want to update the password on another, be forewarned you will change networks…at least via this current GUI.
Bluetooth - I had to install pavucontrol and bluez-hid2hci before it would successfully connect to my earbuds and play audio. It’s still somewhat cumbersome to switch devices as the remembered paring randomly switches back to the default audio profile and then I have to change it back, disconnect and reconnect. I opened a thread here: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/manjaro-deepin-bluetooth-xps15/16244
SSD Optimized - Haven’t looked into this yet but it’s on my list as I’m not sure out of the box I need to tweak my HD setup for better longevity of my SSD
That’s it for now, I’ll update as needed.
