Ubuntu 13.10 vs 14.04 for a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Laptop?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 20, 2014
I just picked up a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro laptop today and want to install Ubuntu on it. I intend to dual boot for the moment with Windows 8.1 and will try to maintain the secure boot setup. As some of you probably already know the laptop is cutting edge with features such as a 3200 x 1800 screen resolution, backlit and touchscreen, and a "laptop to tablet folding behavior" which has created an endless number of issues for early adopters wishing to install Ubuntu or other Linux distros on it.
I normally never install alpha software on a machine but was thinking about it on this machine since the newer kernel and modules may allow better handling of cutting edge hardware. I realize that I will be installing alpha software and will avoid doing any mission critical work on the machine. I will also maintain a separate home partition in case I need to downgrade the install or rescue user data.
So 14.04 or 13.10 for this machine?
installing ubuntu on usb lenovo yoga pro 2
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 6, 2014
I wanted to install ubuntu 14.4 on usb flash drive, Its lenovo yoga pro 2,I did it before on other computers. on the partition editor I set the grube 2 location to /dev/sdc1 which is the root of the ubuntu install on the usb. the installation is ok but apparently grub2 is somehow installed to the computer hard drive. if I start the computer with the usb unplagged I get a grub2 command line, if the usb is plagged I can choose between windows and ubuntu. but I want to leave the hard drive untouched and keep using windows as normal and boot to linux only when I choose to boot from usb.
Thanks for any help.
Lenovo Yoga 2 13, Kali Linux 1.0.7, Ubuntu 14.04, Windows 8.1 install, config, wifi

I wanted to share an experience with everyone I hope will help others avoid what I have gone through the past 3 days. I bought a Yoga 11s that I loved but had some issues with the wireless, Lenovo being awesome replaced it with a Yoga 2 13. I love this laptop but ran into some issues with Linux install/wireless, which I wanted to show how to resolve in one place. Hopefully this will help someone else get through this quicker
I am going to try and write this for someone with little Linux experience, if I miss the mark please let me know and I will clarify the best I can.
For work I need Windows 8.1 and Kali Linux, while for home I prefer Ubuntu.
My Yoga 2 13:
I5 1.6 ghz
8 GB ram
256 GB SSD
I need Windows
I need Kali Linux (livecd, even with persistent mode was not an option as it would not save the wireless fix or system updates) – I would also like this on a USB drive and not the internal SSD
I would like Ubuntu

Ubuntu 14.10 Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Issues
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 19, 2014
I have installed Ubuntu 14.10 in my new toy, which I love: Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro.
I have some issues that I have not been able to work around, and I would like to report them, to see if anyone has suffered the same, and have some tips to share, or just confirm same behavior.
0.- Wifi is working after blacklisting idea_laptop as written in a lot of posts. So, no issue there.
1.- Graphics: Graphics works out of the box at native resolution. I change the scale in Unity and Firefox and it actually works fine, but with some minor annoyances (ie: mousse pointer is very small in some objects, as the panel). I ended up, though, working at 1920x1080, wish is equivalent at my eyes.
The problem appears when I connect a second monitor. Unity starts to behave randomly wrong. Some fonts and UI controls disappear, some windows are not rendered correctly, and some times the desktop background image is turned black. I don't know if this is a 14.10 problem, or a driver problem. I neither have k

Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 2nd Gen with Ubuntu 14.04

- Unfortunately, the two issues below are present in 14.10 as well, both without and with the intel graphics installer(1.08). However, they are significantly rarer and I am using 14.10 happily.
- Upon opening the lid, the screen is sometimes frozen after the laptop has been closed (suspended) for a while. This usually fixes itself after a few seconds and I get redirected to the log in prompt, but once I had to kill X.
- The screen is definitely iffy after suspend. Not necessarily the touch input, but there are graphical glitches and scrolling becomes laggy. I will test with 14.10 and the latest intel drivers when I have more time.

Screen Brightness Lenovo Yoga 2 11, Ubuntu 14.04
- date: July 20, 2014
Installed 14.04 on a new Lenovo Yoga 2 11. Got wifi working, got multitouch working on the touchpad.
The only other thing I would LOVE to have working is the screen brightness adjustment. Thing is, I had it working at one point, then it stopped. So, here's what I've done so far...
To get the wireless working, I blacklisted the ideapad_laptop module. I wonder if this is what killed the screnn brightness....
I installed a kernel module to allow the multitouch Elan touchpad to work as a touchpad instead of a basic mouse.
For screen brightness, I currently am passing this boot paramter in GRUB:
:~$ cat /proc/cmdline
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-32-generic.efi.signed root=UUID=c91a0c9a-61ef-4952-8235-1c2dcec2d801 ro acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor quiet splash vt.handoff=7
And here's what the video adapter is:
