It apears my problem must have been due to a faulty / dead FN key. A hardware issue that is. My 'solutoin': To swap ctrl and FN via the relevant bios option. Then I was without a left ctrl key. So I swapped left ctrl with caps lock. the xmapmod for this is availble via google, but for the sake of posterity the process is: First Backup your current ...

Startup asks for a password to decrypt the swap partition specified in /etc/cryptab. Comment out the line in /etc/cryptab to disable the use of an encrypted swap. The /etc/fstab above is not configured to use /dev/mapper/ctyptswap1 anyway. NVMe should not be a contributing factor.

I have the same problem. "sudo pm-suspend" works fine but when closing the lid or selecting "power->suspend" the system freezes at resume. This is the behavior: Ubuntu login screens appears, mouse can be moved. However, the system is frozen: mouse clicks do not work, keyboard entries do not work, the clock is frozen at the time of suspension. "/var/log/pm-...

On Thinkpad T540p, there is a field Security Chip in BIOS under the Security tab with options Active, Inactive and Disabled. The error message you reported appears if this option is set to Inactive: "Security chip is visible, but is not functional." In my case, any other option removes the error. Active means "Security chip is functional" and Disabled "...

The dmesg entries regarding ACPI seem to be related to video, not wireless, according to Google. I am afraid we will have to provoke the error to learn more about this. Please run: cat /var/log/syslog Make a note of the timestamp for the last line. Here is an example from my machine: Jun 8 16:25:59 T440p colord[839]: (colord:839): Cd-WARNING **: ...

The installation of tp-smapi-dkms failed at some point. As you have a T460s i reckon you're using a 4.6 kernel. tp-smapi-dkms 0.41-1 from the Xenial repos doesnt't compile with that kernel. Only 0.42-1 from Yakkety or Debian unstable will do. BUT: tp-smapi won't work on the T460s anyway (and is not needed), so just remove it and you'll be fine: sudo apt-...

Windows users also complain about this. This laptop uses the Intel Q87 express chipset which does not have PWM outputs so the only way of controlling the fan speed is via the BIOS. You could try changing the power management profile to balanced. I do not recommend removing dust by using an air duster to blow the dust into the laptop. It is much safer to use ...

Yes you can but if you want to just test it and make sure everything works I suggest creating a Live USB/CD and try that. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCD http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows Once you have tested it out, and you are not having issues you can install it directly from the Live version. Come back here ...

x240 and x250 no problem with 2 external monitors (keep in mind you do need the right docking station) and ubuntu 15.04, 15.10 and 16.04. I had problems with the set up for the x260. Even with a brand new docking station. Not sure if I had a Monday-machine or if the hardware was conflicting. I did not get it to work with ubuntu 15.10 and x260 and docking ...

If you have an AMD GPU in your laptop then this problem can't be solved until the release of Ubuntu 16.04.1 on July 21st. Since Ubuntu 16.04 doesn't support the propriety AMD driver "fglrx". And this is a GPU driver problem. On the other hand, if you have an nVidia GPU inside. Just go to System Settings -> Software and Updates -> Additional Drivers. ...

Well after find this bug report and comment... Typically, just the existence of the word "error" in dmesg, especially without an accompanying end user impact, doesn't meet the standards of a bug. However, we can mark it Triaged for now, and see what develops. It may just be a mild annoyance at this point. I'm going to ignore it for now until someone ...

The issue seems to have been caused by booting with either the acpi=off or noapic flags set. I reproduced the issue with a W541 using those boot options, and with them removed, the input devices work.

I just bought one of these used a few weeks ago and have run into a lot of trouble with performance. Make certain you are not using a 90W power supply as the ThinkPad will throttle itself substantially. A 135W power supply was standard and ought to avail the unit's full power to you. Mine came with a 90W supply and I noticed a dramatic increase in ...

Putting scripts in /etc/pm/sleep.d/ will no longer work as a result of the move to systemd from 15.04. If you want to experiment with such scripts, you can put them in /lib/systemd/system-sleep/ instead, though you'll also need to make some minor changes to them as the parameters that are passed are different. From man systemd-sleep: The first argument ...
