Linux Mint 18 on the Thinkpad X140e

Got fed up of Unity... It is pretty nice, but, definitively not my cup of tea, besides, it is a bit too much of a heavy load for the little X140e...
So, today swapped SSD and installed LM 18 XFCE onto the little lappie.
The WiFi card isn't recognized upon installation, you have to either use Ethernet or, lucky me, a USB external one, that got recognized without an issue.
After making the actual install, and, just to be safe, installing the whole batch of the first updates, go to System > Driver Manager and enable the built in WiFi card, reboot, and presto, all is golden.
