I’m posting a HCL report for Systems76 Lemur Pro (lemp12) and Qubes version 4.1.2. Wifi, VPN (ProtonVPN), network printing, suspend, and second monitor (HDMI or Thunderbolt) are all working. Audio/microphone input works as well. I have two SSDs: one for Qubes and another one for additional storage (additional storage is easily accessible via the device manager). I haven’t checked Bluetooth. The webcam works for pictures and initially worked for video (Cheese app). However, at some point in the last two weeks of various Qubes updates and other adjustments, the webcam (video) doesn’t work anymore using the Cheese application. I need to troubleshoot the webcam video to see what happened.
The only initial installation issue was related to Wifi. I had to use the latest kernel install option on the ISO. Also, before installing Qubes, I updated the System76 firmware (Coreboot) via the original Ubuntu LTS install, even though my computer was the latest model.
Video playback performance (1080p) is good (and much better than I expected based on some forum comments), when I give an AppVM plenty of memory. My system configuration is maxed out at 40GB DDR5, and I’m using 20-30GB (max.) in any AppVM where I need to play video, which obviously means limiting the number of other running AppVMs. Video at 2160p is more of a problem, but again I expected that.
Finally, many thanks to the developers, testers, and the entire Qubes community for the distribution itself, as well as the content (HCL, Qubes documentation, community guides, forum discussions, videos, etc.). These resources have been tremendously helpful. As I learn more from using Qubes, I hope to contribute back.
