See Installation guide.



Audio stopped working with kernel 5.4. Adding the option snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0 to the kernel commandline helped in getting it back to work, see FS#64720.


The notebook comes with the Intel UHD Graphics GPU, which uses the xf86-video-intel driver. See: Intel for details.


Keyboard worked out of the box.


Touchpad worked out of the box. To enable scroll and more, install xf86-input-libinput. With the default configuration file it will work well, but if you want to fine tune the behavior.

See: Libinput.
