I'm running into occasional failures when attempting to resume from Suspend. It's not consistent, happening one out of every 3-4 Suspends. Not sure whether this is a graphics driver issue or something else.
Additionally, still experiencing the glitchy trackpad tracking as others have, with no apparent change after psmouse.resetafter=0.
Experiencing the same problems as well as bugs in the Wifi-card driver (I assume), sometimes no networks can be found at all untill I reboot the device...
Besides this I find the lack of support for the HiDPI screen to be a real pain in the neck, does anyone have any solutions (without having to resort to things as scaling to HD) the crispness of the display is one of the reasons I bought the ultrabook in the first place but the tiny buttons and text in some applications make them impossible to work with.
Did you ever get a response or a resolution to these problems? I just received my XPS 13 DE last week and love it, but the problems with it are crazy. I'm thinking about just returning it. I'm to linux and was really excited to learn the system, but I'm really concerned that this machine might not be my answer.
I don't have any of those issues, but I'm on BIOS version A09.
You could try hunting down instructions to upgrade the BIOS. When I looked into it a couple years ago, it required Windows, but that could have changed by now.
I haven't gotten a response from Dell, but I'll need to open a support ticket for that. Just been too busy. Other than these two issues, no complaints from me so far.
Will update if I find out more.
Also have the resume problems with a stock 2015 xps 13 developer edition. The trackpad was fixed by the
psmouse.resetafter=0 boot option.
With running "synclient SingleTapTimeout=1"
I'm going to switch to mint when these issues get resolved waiting to see what the fix is first though.
Looking at the report sent to ubutu after it crashes suggests the resume problem is due to pulse audio?
