Bluetooth

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

Fingerprint

You should find a fingerprint sensor with

$ lsusb | grep AuthenTec
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 08ff:2810 AuthenTec, Inc. AES2810

You'll need the fprintd package. See fprint for more information.

Synaptics Touchpad

Install the package xf86-input-synaptics for enabling the touchpad.

Wireless

You may find out which wireless network card you have with:

$ lspci | grep Broadcom | grep -v Ethernet

It seems this laptop may have BCM5761 or BCM43228.

In both cases, you will need the proprietary driver broadcom-wl-dkms, or its non-DKMS version broadcom-wlAUR.

Troubleshooting

Issue with XKeyboardConfig

While starting the graphic interface, you might come across with the bug #77504 reported in freedesktop bugzilla. 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.

Disable PC Speaker

To disable it, ensure the module pcspkr is not loaded during bootup:

/etc/modprobe.d/nobeep.conf
#Do not load the 'pcspkr' module on boot.

blacklist pcspkr
