Description:
(**Was not tested with Trisquel 8.0 Flidas. The list isn't updated)

Installed Trisquel 9.0 Etiona using default Kernel Linux 4.15.0-161-generic x86_64, and it works well. Webcam works, media buttons work, multiple screens work (with DisplayPort to HDMI adapter).

Default wifi card does not work with Trisquel 9.0. I tried installing another wifi card, the Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter, but while there seemed to be no problems with a whitelist (the OS started just fine), the wifi card couldn't associate with any networks, even on a live USB ISO.

Works with a Thinkpenguin USB wifi dongle and Bluetooth dongle.
