    Hey guys!
    I've been using Razer products for years, but I just joined the forum today for some reason :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Anyways, I have a bunch of questions about getting linux running on the new 14-inch blade. I owned the 2015 model and I got all my distributions working without a problem, but with this model I've tried installing Ubuntu Gnome (16.04) and Apricity OS, which is an arch-based distro using Gnome as well (check it out if you haven't - it has a beautiful interface). For Apricity, the live usb starts up, but doesn't go to GUI and start the interface. Ubuntu Gnome on the other hand does start, but the keyboard doesn't work and the touchpad click won't work either. So I only have the touchscreen to work with.

    If you guys have had any success setting up linux distros on your blade, please do share your experience. I'm actually looking forward to trying a new flavor of linux if I have to. Thanks!

    Anyone? I gotta get this working before going back to college :/
