    When i overclock to 2.0ghz ubuntu runs even slower, before the overclocking, dolphin ran at 15-50fps, after overclocking to 2.0 it runs at 2fps, even at the strap screen (i was testing out nsmbwii)

    The OP tells you to delete the boot folder and boot.src when you install the 1.2 update; if I recall correctly, that file and folder are the only files in the v1.1 update. So no, you probably don't need to install both, only the latest

    Ubuntu on the Switch just seems slow overall. It would take seconds to get things to load, using RDP was insanely unstable and wouldn't stay connected, opening windows meant sitting there for 30 seconds just waiting for things to open up. Got this issue on multiple SD cards (or at least the ones that would properly boot).

    You can install nvidia-settings and enable the built in display while docked through the display configuration. You can use the internal display and external display simultaneously just like on a regular PC. I have a 3rd party dock stand that angles the screen up for use rather than hiding the screen, works great for dual screen mode.

    This is handled by udev, which detects the state of the dock connection, then calls a script called dock-handler. the easiest way to change this would be to modify the dock-handler script that is supplied with L4T-ubuntu, so that when you are on the dock, it doesnt turn off the screen, and then extends the screen to the HDMI port. Look into xrandr command for details on how to script what you want into the pre-existing script. This is a better option than Nvidia-settings, as this will be automatic the moment you drop it on the dock, where Nvidia-settings you will have to set this up each time you want to extend the screen on the dock, as UDEV will cancel out nvidia-settings.

    It's more reliable to dock on the connector directly as you will have random graphical glitches

    You can take the PCB and USB-C ribbon out of the dock

    You may need nano, or gedit... and patience to experiment. Share your result, or your config. I need it too. thanks.

    Just for the lazy: Is there a way to do this without formatting the SD card and having to copy everything from my FAT32 partition to the PC first and back to SD card afterwards?
    Like just resizing my FAT32 partition, adding an EXT4 (or whatever needed) and put the files from the IMG there?

    I think someone installed it like that earlier in the thread, so it should work

    sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings

    There's an option to rotate the screen so you can have the usb c cord coming out of the top of the switch

    Anyone else having the time of their lives with the touch screen? It seems like my hacked Switch (both have screen protectors, btw) is having a very hard time with navigating and using Ubuntu via touchscreen. Is everyone using USB-A to USB-C hubs with some converter to use a M/KB to navigate through this right now? Because I'm trying to pair my Joy-Cons and the touchscreen is doing nothing right now. I haven't installed any of the updates yet as I'm just trying to do the initial setup here before I get into the nitty gritty.
