Yes it can be a bit tricky--it happened to me as well in LM 19.3; so after installing the OS from USB, and rebooting into the OS, I left the USB on, then mounted it; it will show up as 2 USB drives on the Desktop..the second one is a Live CD-ROM source ..so when you load additional drivers setup, it will try connecting to all sources..internet and local CD-ROM...and it will automatically pull the WiFi drivers from there.@smiley_ lauf
I tried on many occasions to install LM 19.3 Cinnamon but it needed internet to complete but had no driver for my system.
It worked well from the USB but on install it would get stuck on wifi driver not working. Sadly I had to resort to Elementary.
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianDesktopHowTo#Select_Appropriate_Debian_ReleaseOkay I think I'll give Debian a spin, which one do you recommend? I wouldn't want it to be too outdated.
Did you manage to get it to work? My T470 fingerprint has never worked out of the box, but managed to get it working in 18.10/19.04 accidently somehow. Would love to get it working again on 20.04Running like a dream on my T490.
Only the fingerprint reader does not work out the box but will resolve that with a bit of googling no doubt.
