Notes on installing Ubuntu with GNOME on Lenovo Thinkpad X1 (Gen 5)

Installing the OS

  • Had a lot of trouble with the defaults in Debian when I tried dual booting
  • Installed Ubuntu with full disk encryption and it’s still pretty fast

Installing GNOME and getting rid of Unity

  • apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop
  • Restart
  • You have to uninstall unity too for a full switch. Don’t bother with purge
  • apt-get remove unity
