Lenovo IdeaPad 720s (Ryzen)

From ArchWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Lenovo IdeaPad 720s (Ryzen) is a laptop computer with a 13.3" screen, AMD Ryzen™ processor, webcam, microphone, audio in/out, 80211ac wireless card with bluetooth 4.1, 1 USB 3.0 Type-C (DP & Power Delivery), 1 x USB 3.0 Type-C (DP), 2 USB3 ports, and a fingerprint reader.

CPU/APU-wise, Linux support for the 720s is in decent shape since kernel ~4.15 (CPU and GPU temperatures per lm_sensors); the more recent the better. Its rtl8821ce WLAN and Bluetooth chip has no mainlined driver (as of 4.17), but rtl8821ce-dkms-gitAUR comes to rescue here.

Hardware Support

UEFI

Before installing, disable Secure Boot in the BIOS. You can access the BIOS by pressing F2 at the Splash screen. The boot menu can also be accessed by pressing F12.

Video

X works natively with a current linux and xf86-video-amdgpu.

Sound

Sound works with PulseAudio in linux 4.15-1 from testing repos.

Webcam

Chicony EasyCamera (USB)

<untested>

Ethernet

(No RJ45, use any working USB (A or C) dongle.)

Wireless

The rtl8821ce-dkms-gitAUR wireless driver is required in order for WiFi and Bluetooth to work.

Active bluetooth may lock up the PC on lid close/suspend, then rfkill block bluetooth.

Touchpad

Works out of the box with mutli-finger scrolling on linux 4.15-1 in X.

Hardware keys

No dedicated keys. The Fn functions on the F{1..12} keys are correctly recognised by X11 and work out of the box (Touchpad on/off etc.). Fn state can be inverted in the BIOS menu.

Finger Print Reader

Model: <Unknown>

<untested>

ACPI annoyances

ttys get filled with massive amounts of ACPI complaints, and are unusable as such. Mitigate by passing the pci=noaer kernel commandline option.
