Hardware support

In this section you will find some quick information and references for hardware support. See Laptop and Laptop/Dell for more general information on laptops.

Audio

Audio works out of the box.

PC speaker capability is included. See PC speaker for information on how to disable it and more.

Bluetooth

Install the bluez package, start bluetooth systemd service and use your preferred front-end to manage connections. See Bluetooth for more information.

Fingerprint reader

Install the fprintd package, as it is required to create fingerprint signatures. See fprint for more useful information.

Touchpad

Install the libinput package. See Laptop#Touchpad.

Wireless

It has been reported to come with the chip Broadcom BCM43228 embedded in a Dell Wireless 1540 802.11 A/N Dual Band, High Speed Wi-Fi Half Mini-card, which can be confirmed by running the following:

 $ lspci | grep Broadcom | grep -v Ethernet
 02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n

The driver to be used must be either the open source b43 together with blob firmware b43-firmwareAUR, or the proprietary wl module via broadcom-wl or broadcom-wl-dkms.

See Broadcom wireless and Dell Wireless 1540 on WikiDevi for more info.

Troubleshooting

Issue with XKeyboardConfig

While starting the graphic interface, you might come across with the issue !6 reported in xkbcomp's Gitlab issue list at freedesktop Gitlab. It seems to apply to both Xorg and Wayland. During the display server startup, the XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomb) reports:

> Warning:          Compat map for group 2 redefined
>                   Using new definition
> Warning:          Compat map for group 3 redefined
>                   Using new definition
> Warning:          Compat map for group 4 redefined
>                   Using new definition
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server

One solution is to comment out the following lines in the file /usr/share/X11/xkb/compat/basic. The double forward-slash is the comment symbol.

 //    group 2 = AltGr;                                                                
 //    group 3 = AltGr;
 //    group 4 = AltGr; 

This solution of provided in the forum thread Xkeyboard/xkbcomp gives warnings.
