What works

Almost all the hardware works after configuring drivers, including

  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • Touchpad
  • Webcam

What does not work

The fingerprint reader (0a5c:5834) is not supported because no linux driver exists so far (Sep 2017).

The IR camera can be used to take a picture but not for log in at the moment.
