    NUC6i5SYH and LinuxMint bluetooth WIfi Graphics

    JosepSaez

      I have a NUC6i5SYH with Bios 42

      Linux Mint 17.3 with  3.19.0-32-generic (the one includes with the distro)

      I have not wifi, not bluetooth, and the graphics performing not so good.

       

      ILOGICAL PROCEDURE TO MAKE THE NUC6i5SYH working under MINT 17.3:

       

      sudo apt-get update

      sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential

      wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/backports/2015/11/20/backports-20151120.tar.gz

      tar -zxvf backports-20151120.tar.gz

      cd backports-20151120

      make defconfig-iwlwifi

      make

      sudo make install

      cd /lib/firmware

      sudo cp iwlwifi-7265D-13.ucode  iwlwifi-3165-9.ucode

      sudo cp iwlwifi-7265-13.ucode  iwlwifi-3165-13.ucode

      sudo reboot

      wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/linux-headers-4.6.0-040600rc6_4.6.0-040600rc6.201605012031_all.deb

      wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/linux-headers-4.6.0-040600rc6-generic_4.6.0-040600rc6.201605012031_amd64.deb

      wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/linux-image-4.6.0-040600rc6-generic_4.6.0-040600rc6.201605012031_amd64.deb

      sudo dpkg -i linux-*.deb

      sudo reboot

      sudo apt-get remove linux-image-4.6.0

      sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-4.6.0

      But please I buy this device for the promise of Linux support, but not drivers or solutions is found on the official pages.

       

      I'm worried because:

      • under kernel 4.x.x the graphic card is not usable (flick continously when move the cursor)
      • the bluetooth working on the actual way seams can hung the device.....
