    ASUS ROG GL553V & Ubuntu 16.04.2

    ASUS ROG GL553V & Ubuntu 16.04.2

    It seems not too many people have this combo yet. I can't find anything about Ubuntu and GL553V. I will continue to update this post with issues and solutions as they become known. I'm a sysadmin who can navigate a Linux machine well enough and I'd much appreciate any help from the senior members (especially friends of the penguin) in getting this guide going.

    Known, already solved issues:

    Wireless
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install git
    git clone https://github.com/OpenELEC/iwlwifi-firmware.git
    cd iwlwifi-firmware/firmware
    sudo cp iwlwifi-7265*  /lib/firmware
    Nvidia graphics
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-361-updates nvidia-prime

    Some other issues:
    • Screen dimming and brightening keys
    • Keyboard dimming and brightening keys
    • Keyboard is single color (red)
    • Fan control doesn't seem to work properly - need some package for the sensors?
    Linux bruh.

    Some additional details

    I've seen some approaches to previous models.

    When I add either of the following parameters to /etc/default/grub, my trackpad stops working (and I get no additional function keys):

    Code:
    acpi_osi=
    acpi_osi=!

    Hello,
    I have the same laptop, and quite the same problems with function keys that manage keyboard and screen brightness.
    My keyboard is not single colored, but it is because i changed that on Windows (i have a dual boot), and Ubuntu seems to launch with the same settings, but i don't know how to change this inside Linux.
    I'm interested in getting new tips for Linux and post those i have if i find something that fixes an issue.

    I have the same issues and I'm also interested in some solution. Some of the problems (mainly Fn keys) went away when updated to 4.12 kernel version.
