Currently I am tracking those open issues with various software applications / online services.
If you have any useful hints on any of those issues, I am very happy to listen.
Core functionality badly broken since months (duplicated files, files & folders not syncing). Sadly there is no real alternative for Ubuntu and Google Drive (especially with good team drives support).
Insists of putting a visible directory right in your home folder on Ubuntu.
- See open issue on snapd github
Please take a look at comment #11 where even Mark Shuttleworth suggested to switch at least to a hidden “.snap” directory (2017-02-27). Unbelievably after almost 4 years developers still don’t assign their bug with the most heat by far any significance.
Best workaround for me currently is to uninstall snap completely. Sadly Ubuntu is distributing more and more applications via Snap by default. I hope the issue is resolved before I have to switch to another distribution.
After shipping Ubuntu 20.04 the dev team announcement that this issue will be actively worked on. Fingers crossed.
Community requests I am currently following:
- Add more pre-defined item types
- Login with multiple Bitwarden user accounts
- Drag & drop support
Plex Media Server
The web player seems to have troubles in Chrome (skipping several seconds from time to time), which is quite annoying:
An experimental setting will be available with Plex Web 4.34 which is already available on app.plex.tv and will hopefully be included in PMS soon.
Another suggested workaround is to use Firefox instead of Chome for the time being.
My workaround is to choose 2Mbit or 3Mbit Quality manually which also fixes the problem in Chrome.
Acer Swift 5
Model 2019, SF514-54GT
Currently has some hardware support issues in Ubuntu 19.10:
- Audio not working at all Ubuntu 20.04
Kernel 5.4.0-29-generic (same with Kernel 5.6.x)
Shows “Dummy output” instead of regular output
to get the system recognize the sound card again is to add snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0 to boot parameters
How to set boot params
- sudo vim /etc/default/grub
- Find GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and add snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0 to the end of it. (ex: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”loglevel=3 snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0″)
- sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
- Reboot the system.

- Internal microphone array is not working
Workaround for this time is plugging in an external mic. Hopeful that this will work some time soon. See post #9 on this related Manjaro thread where the fix is using sof-firmware (I think sof-firmware is included in linux-firmware package in Ubuntu):
- Fingerprint reader is not working
Would be nice, but don’t really care that much.
