I recently purchased an X1 Carbon 3rd generation. I fought the issues you mention plus a few more. I kept a text log of all of the fixes and post as follows - TrackPad Buttons: /etc/modprobe.d/touchpad.conf: options psmouse proto=imps update-initramfs -u verical and horizontal scrolling ...

Wifi is disconnecting Open a Terminal with Ctrl + Alt + T and enter sudo su echo "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf update-initramfs -u reboot You can try to use "11n_disable=8" to gain more speed as suggested in a comment.

I've done this task before starting with a Pentium 4 computer that had 512MB RAM and no graphics card. I don't believe that a Pentium 4 computer can run Ubuntu 14.04 satisfactorily, so I downloaded Xubuntu 14.04 32-bit. I also added another 512MB of RAM. I could have used two 1GB RAM sticks instead, but I added only one 512MB RAM stick because it was what I ...

I am aware that hdd manufacturers write firmware on the hdd platters (it has been done like this since more modern drives have firmware requirements that outstrip the embedded controller storage availability). I don't know if the firmware hides itself from you by offsetting addresses, and whether dd would be able to ignore or bypass such an offset, but if ...
