I believe the Fn keys are mapped to X86... named keys. Therefore, I'm assuming you have to install the x-server first. As for the brightness issue, ArchWiki has some relevant information, among which is the possible systemd-backlight problem/workaround: Inverted Brightness (Intel i915 only) Symptoms: after installing xf86-video-intel ...

Insignia doesn't explicitly support linux. They also don't seem to list the chipset used in the adapter in the downloadable documentation (bummer!). While it may not work, I wouldn't be surprised if they use the same chipset as startech. So try the drivers listed on their page version V1.14.4 for kernel 2.6.25 or newer. Post back how it goes.

The origin of the error code can be found in the source code for the hub in question. e.g. grep -A 1 -m 1 22 /usr/src/linux-source-4.3/drivers/usb/host/xhci.h #define PORT_PLC (1 << 22) /* port configure error change - port failed to configure its link partner */ You'll find the meaning of some error codes in ...

Okay, so for me worked upgrading/installing kernel and all kernel-X modules. After that a kernel (propriate version) directory appeared in /usr/src/kernels/

Each OS is independent of each other so any issues with installing Windows drivers are unrelated to having Ubuntu installed. Drivers are OS specific as well, so installing one in Ubuntu will have no effect on Windows.

I was having issues compiling: make defconfig-iwlwifi so I had to add: sudo apt-get install build-essential which resolved my problems and the reboot got everything working.

It is quite rare for hardware manufacturers to supply their own drivers for Linux, partly because they don't care about Linux but mostly because generic drivers for most hardware are included in the Linux kernel itself. Linux kernel drivers tend to be for generic chipsets, not particular brand-names (many hardware devices use the same chips as equivalent ...

(This answer doesn't contain a working solution, but see the end of the post for details we found out while investigating.) The instruction mentions "Linux 2.6", which is ages old—the current version is 4.5.2. I wouldn't expect this driver to work. The second point is: drivers that aren't part of Linux are usually of inferior quality and lack support. So ...

You might wish to try using the version of Linux in a Virtual Machine first https://my.vmware.com/en/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_workstation_player/12_0 , which should usually sort out all the driver stuff for you -- it certainly did with most versions of Linux I successfully trialed on two different Toshiba brand machines... Once ...

The fact that Toshiba don't provide the drivers on their site doesn't mean your hardware won't work with Linux. The best thing you can do is get Kali LiveUSB, write it onto a pendrive and boot from it. Then just check what works and what doesn't. LiveUSB doesn't require installation and doesn't write anything onto your disk (unless you ask it to), so it's ...

I solved my problem the ugly way. I'll wait with marking this as correct as I think there is a better solution. After trying a variety of solutions, among other trying to get information from /sys/ (readlink /sys/block/sda/device/driver etc). But I only found information that it was some kind of SCSI driver, which didn't help me. Finally I used my desktop ...
