To those who still want to use all touch features of their convertibles, here is a script which works well on x220t. The script with which I started is given in the thread above. I just extended it to take values for the stylus in addition to the finger touch. Same approach copy-paste as for the finger, which solves the first issue of Yossi Gil. I also ...

You could try to change synclient touchpadoff=0 to synclient touchpadon=1 and at right" styles rotate half and erase" rotate half. and it might work fine this way.

Thanks for your response. I subsequently found the problem only seemed to happen when waking from suspend. Also the 'Trackpoint' seems to be part of the problem (the red pointer device in the middle of the keyboard. To cut a long story short I disabled the trackpoint in the BIOS and all seems well now! For those with a similar level of ignorance to me you ...

Problem solved The solution was to shutdown, unplug it and remove the battery. Wait for 1 minute or less, and there it goes! It seems to be the way that solves this problem in other thinkpad models. See ya!

I am able to install Ubuntu 12.04.4 desktop 64-bit on my Lenovo t440p (with SSD) from a USB stick without any BIOS downgrade. After a clean install, the wireless will not work immediately, but it works after you find a ethernet cable to do apt-get update/upgrade: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade It might worth a try if you are still finding a ...

I am using a completely different laptop (dell inspiron 1420), but had a similar problem with 14.04. With a timeout suspend (2 hours), upon resuming, keyboard and trackpad do not work. Cannot switch to a terminal. Workaround seems to be to manually (as suggested above) use the menu to suspend rather than a timeout (or lid closing). After a manual suspend, ...

SO, WHAT HELPED ME TO MAKE TRACKPOINT MORE SENSITIVE. the easies way is to do in terminal: $ xinput --list --short Then you will see something like this: omicron@omicron:~$ xinput --list --short ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ ...

I have used a MacBook Air 2010, 2011, and 2013 with various versions of Ubuntu and it mostly works, although requires some manual configuration. The only unresolved issue with my current Ubuntu 14.04 setup requires that I close the lid twice to suspend properly: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pm-utils/+bug/1311724 Some helpful notes on ...

From what I gather googling around Macs didn't seem to have good compatibility with Ubuntu in the past. This might have changed now, but I would not bet on it. If Ubuntu is a must for you (plus a lot of other reasons) I'd prefer the ThinkPad over the MacBook. Then again you could look at individual parts and their compatibility with Ubuntu and see what you ...

I believe that bcmwl-kernel-source, which you already have installed, is incorrect for your device. I suggest: sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source sudo modprobe -r wl sudo modprobe brcmsmac It may take a reboot.

Try this : In your terminal (CTRL + ALT + T) sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source bcmwl-modaliases

This can by done by editing /etc/pam.d/sudo and deleting the line permitting usage of fingerprint-gui: auth sufficient pam_fingerprint-gui.so This command will do that: sudo sed -i.bak '/fingerprint-gui/d' /etc/pam.d/sudo

I bought recently ThinkPad W540 (high-end type) and that new generation ClickPad has loomed large in my mind... All the time something was wrong in new 14.04. But finally i got it working! For Ubuntu (14.04 LTS and previous) you need newer evdev and synaptics (until it wont be implemented), to get it work with AUR's arch pkg. I did some fixes and ...
