• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

Hello, i'm trying to install Arch/Manjaro/Calculate/Fedora Linux on my matebook 13 2020 edition with i5-10210u and MX250, and i have some troubles with connection to my wi-fi hotspot. Matebook just doesn't see any wifi hotspots. I use ip a and get only lo: .... I don't know what to do and how to install linux on my laptop. Thanks.
(i found some information about 2019 edition, but it gives me nothing )

Some prep is necessary, I'd say.

I would start by purchasing Calculate Linux Desktop 18.12 MATE - Install/Live DVD (64-bit)

Then placing the nVidia driver on a separate USB stick

And come back here, telling us what it is you want to do. For example, dual-boot with Windows 10, or use only GNU/Linux. Giving us more hardware information, plus your intended use of the machine (looks like a fine one, from here)!

I say this, because I, personally would want to install first, then get WiFi working.
