With the new X.org pointer acceleration settings, everything can be configured nicely in an /etc/x11/xorg.conf.d/52-trackpoint-tweaks.conf file (or similarly named – on Ubuntu, you have to create directory and file, but the mechanism works). The file should have this content: Section "InputClass" Identifier "Trackpoint tweaks" MatchProduct ...

The Libreboot X200 comes with Trisquel GNU/Linux pre-installed. http://shop.gluglug.org.uk/about/ Trisquel is based on Ubuntu. Trisquel 7 "LTS" is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, I believe. My understanding is that Trisquel is Ubuntu with every last bit of non-Free software ripped out (plus other features like its own "...customized version of the GNOME ...

Finally solved this by switching from SNA to UXA. Add /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf, enter the following: Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "AccelMethod" "uxa" EndSection More info here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Intel_graphics#Tips_and_tricks

The problem is that Xorg will use the synaptics driver, which is not yet capable of handling the new hardware correctly. This can be circumvented by using evdev, and forcing the psmouse module, which takes care of the device at kernel-level, to recognize the device as legacy ImPS mouse. No need to update your kernel, this works: Add the file ...

You can simply adjust the fonts' sizes, and it should be OK. I'm using a laptop which has 13.3" display with 1920x1080 resolution, IMHO it's better than any smaller resolution, I like it :)

This solution works: http://vimtips.org/2015/02/20/ubuntu-1410-and-lenovo-thinkpad-x250/ 1.) update kernel 3.18.7 2.) create file psmouse.conf then edit trackpoint buttons

I would suggest looking into system76.com/laptops If you don't want to go that route. I would strongly suggest grabbing the Asus x550la Intel core i7 haswell or a similar model. Ubuntu runs flawlessly out of the box and incredibly stable. All hardware drivers work without any issue. I have customized my build exactly how I want with no issues as well. ...

I just got my 3rd gen X1 machine. As I'm writing this, Ubuntu 14.10 is running from a USB pen drive. So far I can say that this is not a "zero glitches" solution: mouse key buttons above trackpad don't work screen brightness keys don't work Full story at http://fredrik.wendt.se/2015/02/24/lenovo-thinkpad-x1-carbon-3rd-gen/

You can refer to thinkwiki.org, which is a great source when using Linux on Thinkpads. Especially, this page http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Installing_Ubuntu_9.10_%28Karmic_Koala%29_on_a_ThinkPad_X200 seems to suggest X200 should work just fine with Ubuntu (well, it is an outdated version of Ubuntu, but newer versions should work at least as well).

My Viber didn't play any sound notification in my Sony Vaio with Ubuntu 14.04. I fix it changing the "Audio Output" on Viber Settings>Audio & Video. I hope this can solve your problem too. Best Regards, Rachid

I have the 1st gen X1 Carbon and have been running Ubuntu on it for two years now. With 14.04 the fingerprint reader works. That was the only piece of hardware that didn't work in 13.10. It's a fantastic machine. Use powertop to find which settings are killing your battery life and you'll be much happier. I can get >5hrs

Sounds like you have the US keyboard enabled, rather than the UK. Keyboard layouts are managed from within settings. When you have the dialogue open, click the button at the bottom which says 'Text Entry' and a list of available keyboard layouts appears. You can add more if you need to or just select the UK option from the list. You may also have a link ...

It looks like the Arch Wiki has a page for the first generation. From my experience with a T530 of the same generation, UEFI booting with 14.04 and the latest firmware should be no problem. Audio seems to work fine, there seem to be no issues with (audio) power management on recent releases. Side note: Should have the convenient and now common TRRS/CTIA ...

I am not sure it will work for all. I have an t540 with the same problem. My problem was solved by editing the Bios Power Management seetings. On the menu item :Power > Adaptive Thermal Management Scheme for AC: Balanced Scheme for Batery: Balanced I choosed balanced instead of Maximum performance for both AC adapter and Batery. After this, re-start the ...
