Ok, SO... A neighbour, decide to give me his ideapad flex 4, after seriously contemplating suicide rather than continue using win10. I replaced it with a thinkpad and Ali's Big Daddy PCLOS roll. He's very happy, his employer has NO idea Bob's sudden increase in productivity has anything to do with linux. So all is well. I have cleansed the ideapad of the diseased demon and installed Big Daddy PCLOS. All is well expect the touch screen doesn't work. Anyone know of any packages I need to install? I seem to have all of them. Until the ideas (pun intended) begin rolling in, I'll continue my research. Thanks in advance, Kate The Great and Terrible.
