Dell Latitude 7370

From ArchWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

These laptops are a part of the Latitude 13 7000 Series featuring Intel Skylake [1]. This series does have _some_ relation to the Dell XPS 13 (2016) for general reference.

dock

The TB15 Thunderbolt dock is no longer supported by dell, and is no longer being sold [2]. The TB15 thunderbolt dock is still a work-in-progress for support, but the use of it is anectodtal [3]. It seems to currently work best when plugged in before booting and avoiding any form of hot-plugging [4].


The TB15 has been replaced by the TB16 [5].

Alternative, the WD15 seems to work as an alternative docking station [6].

bios

As of this writing, the latest version of the BIOS for the 7370 is version 1.9.3

updating

Download the BIOS update from the dell site and place it either at the root of a FAT-formatted USB disk, or within /boot on the hard drive (If using EFI). Reboot and hit F12 during startup, selecting "BIOS Flash Update". The simple file browser should see the executable, select it and allow the update to occur.

card reader

The Broadcom reader "should work" via ccid and pcsclite, but requires an firmware/BIOS update that must be run in Windows [7]

Supporting documentation regarding the card reader: [8] [9]

touchpad

There is a known issue where the touchpad is detected as "ImPS/2 BYD TouchPad", a patch is in the works [10].

displays

Due to being HiDPI it is also common to notice latency when using desktop environments like Gnome-Shell. Installing "vulkan-intel" appears to alleviate some of these issues.

DisplayLink

In order to connect to external projectors using an external dongle, you will need to configure DisplayLink.

known issues

suspend

It appears the system can get into a state in which suspend will stop working (system will suspend but upon attempt to resume will cold boot)[11]. Current resolution appears to be to perform a shutdown within the system and suspend should start working again. Newer bios versions also have improved this issue, though it can still occur.

no keyboard

It appears that on linux-mainlineAUR the system will boot without a keyboard. This can be resolved by adding `i8042` to the MODULES line in `/etc/mkinitcpio.conf`
