So I read Ubuntu Mate has made a specific spin for the GPD Pocket and Pocket 2 machines.

http://ubuntu-mate.org

I did an install over the weekend and so far it looks pretty good. Wifi worked, screen rotate was correct, I like the 720p scale feature. Watched some Youtube without issue. Touch screen worked well. Overall felt speedy enough for my needs.

Nice to have a clean out of box experience without a ton of tweaks necessary post install.

Anyone else give this a go?

Just a follow up still love Ubuntu-Mate. There has been a boot problem where sometimes grub goes to black screen but this is the fix.

Edit the file /etc/default/grub (try something like ‘sudo nano /etc/default/grub’ in a terminal)

Add the following lines to the file:

GRUB_GFXMODE=1200x1920x32
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=“acpi_osi=Linux”

Save the file, and return to the command prompt and run ‘sudo update-grub’
