    Can you test how well the Thunderbolt support works on kernel 5.4? I think the devs would appreciate some feedback and if you find issues it's not too late to open a bug report either.

      Sounds like you didn't try thunderbolt? Support for it has been backported from 5.4, so unless there are bugs with this setup it should work.

          Damn, I just bought the regular 7390 developer edition. Was a little afraid of the linux support for icelake , really liked the 16:10 screen on this one.

            Ice Lake thunderbolt support has been backported to Ubuntu's 5.3 kernel that's used in 19.10, you should get it when you update the system. Please give it try.

            The corresponding bug is: http://launchpad.net/bugs/1844680

              Thanks, will give it a try. Looks like that kernel may have landed a day after I tried with the Dell TB Dock.

                I've tried blacklisting the module on ubuntu 19.10, still no luck.
                The only distro I have been able to boot, with or without blacklisting the intel_lpss, is Fedora 31. Problem is that the Live distro couldn't see any storage in the system, even after switching to AHCI instead of Raid in the bios.

                Anyone have any insight on this? I'd love to get Linux running on this!

                  I wonder how I can set up the touchpad as close as possible to windows precision touchpad.

                    some Dells XPS models use a Goodix fingerprint reader.
                    phoronix did you get the fingerprinter reader to work?

                    I've got a Dell XPS15 with the Goodix (usb id 27c6:5395) and there's no driver for it :-(

                      Got one, and I love it. The new mag keyboard is just the right kind of "clacky" for me, though it's a bit odd having so much click with so little travel. But not EVERYTHING works:

                      * The webcam uses the Ice Lake's IPU 4 MIPI interface. It's a funny setup with one PCI device containing two subsystems, each of which will need a driver... and neither of which have Linux drivers yet. Best description: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Dell/XPS/XPS...-2-in-1#Camera . Apparently https://github.com/intel/intel-camer.../drivers/media needs non-trivial work to build against 5.3 or 5.4 .
                      * The Goodix fingerprint reader also has no Linux driver yet.

                      On the up side, any day now the XPS 13 9300 "developer edition" will land, which is the same CPU with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS pre-installed. So Dell is either about to release drivers, or they stuck a different camera and fingerprint reader into that machine. Touch wood!
