Hi!
Hot laptop. Please include in the trisquel free driver: xserver-xorg-video-nouveau. Is that possible? I think that a hot laptop because i have Nvidia graphics card.
I can not install it yourself.
When plans to update Trisquel?

Site of free drivers. Suitable under the GNU philosophy?

I'm pretty sure it already is installed by default. However, it can only be used if the graphics card is supported. That excludes Maxwell- and (soon) Pascal-series NVIDIA graphics cards.

As said by Magic Banana, try a more recent kernel. But it won't give you support of Maxwell graphics cards in Trisquel (and other free system distributions), since it relies on proprietary signed firmware to work.

Also in Ubuntu (14 and 16) - it is heated, but in Mint and Debiant - okay
