Installing Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 on XPS 15 9560
This document is to serve as a set of notes for myself and can be used as a guide for others looking to set up Ubuntu on their XPS 15. For me this was a dual-boot setup with Windows 10. On Linux I don't have a need for the discrete graphics card, so the main focus is to maximize battery life for development.
I had initially tried to dual boot with Fedora 25, but ran into a lot of issues trying to disable the discrete graphics card, resulting in poor battery life. Instead of starting over with Fedora again, I decided to try with Ubuntu, since there seemed to be a few more resources available.
My XPS Configuration is: i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 4K Screen.
