Sorry, but I can't joine the trisquel community. I tried installing trisquel on my computer, but I got a screen resolution of 600x something. I tried every way to get rid of VESA and replace it with the open version of nvidia driver nou (something), but without success. I also tried to configure the xorg.conf.vesa file. I ended up installing the latest version of Debian where everything worked "out of the box" without any commercial drivers. I think it's a shame because I like the trisquel philosophy of being completely free.

Not all of us use Trisquel. We all just try to do what we can.

Debian 10's default kernel is 4.19, whereas Trisquel 8's is 4.4. It's
possible that your hardware is better supported by the newer kernel.
Trisquel's repository has a 4.15 kernel you could try, and you can add
jxself's[1] repository to install 4.19.

Do you know what NVIDIA GPU your system has? If so it might be possible to give a pointer on what kernel might be needed, or if it's a very recent one then even new nouveau kernel modules may not support it well.

I joined this site years before I bought a system that's freedom friendly. Even then, It's not complete yet, I'm still trying to find money to complete it.

When I joined, I was mildly interested about a 100% libre system. You know kinda like those people that make videos about Windows 98 and ask if it's still useful today doing daily tasks. But, now with centralized proprietary stuff constantly violating my trust, I thought "I wouldn't be surprised if my Bios was spying on me" and than I thought "Oh wait, it probably is thanks to IME/PSP".
