SOUND

Works poorly in Linux. Alsa is able to determine driver, but SPDIF doesn't work and external microphone too. Luckily internal microphone (above LCD) works good, though you can't change its' volume or disable it in alsamixer.

TOUCHPAD

Reason: Don't show pacman commands. (Discuss in Talk:Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Se 1520#)

Install the synaptics driver with

    pacman -S synaptics

In xorg.conf

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Layout0"
	Screen         0 "Screen_local" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
	InputDevice    "TouchPad" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "ExtMouse" "SendCoreEvents"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "TouchPad"
	Driver      "synaptics"
	Option	    "Protocol" "Auto"
	Option	    "Emulate3Buttons"
	Option	    "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"
	Option	    "VertEdgeScroll" "true"
	Option	    "HorizEdgeScroll" "true"
	Option	    "SHMConfig" "true"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "ExtMouse"
	Driver      "mouse"
	Option	    "Protocol" "Auto"
	Option	    "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
EndSection

If you just change Driver to synaptics, external mouse will not work at all. This way you will have external mouse working and horizontal scrool on touch pad.

Also, I would recommend you to add following in ~/.xinitrc:

syndaemon -i 0.5 -d

It will disable touch pad, while you typing.

WIRELESS LAN

Fortunately, we have Linux native driver ipw3945, just install it and use wifi-radar

ACPI

You will need to install powersave and add "powersaved" into /etc/rc.conf.

HOTKEYS, SPECIAL BUTTONS

Alt+Function key commands work ok, but the special buttons on the left side of the keyboard do not work out of the box.
