[EN] New Installation FYI
« on: 2023/03/19, 13:51:56 »
A lightly used Microsoft Surface Pro 7 fell into my hands recently, and I have not seen anything on this forum about that device, so I will share the details here. Everything seems to be working correctly with siduction and KDE/Plasma. I was too lazy to download a recent siduction ISO, because I already had a USB stick with the “Farewell” KDE installer, so I used that. There were 2,000+ updates. :)

Here is inxi and the desktop:

EDIT 22 MAR:  To use the touch screen feature of the Surface Pro 7, and also to see the battery status, a kernel with the needed drivers is required -- instructions here.
