Installation was uneventful, normal EFI installation. Kernel >= 5.7 is required for 4xxx-series AMD APUs, but shouldn't be an issue here.
TUXEDO Computers provides a driver for their models with RGB keyboard. TUXEDO Keyboard can be installed manually from source or from the AUR
The Aura 15 keyboard is supported since Version 3.0.0 of tuxedo-keyboard.
Fn Function Keys
Should any Fn function not work, installing the tuxedo-keyboard from source may help.
TUXEDO Control Center
TUXEDO Computers provides their own Control Center named "TUXEDO Control Center" (short TCC). Install theAUR AUR Package if you want to.
TCC helps you to control power management presets, but only a handful of features are working for now for the Aura 15.
Works out of the box with the more efficient sleep mode.
$ cat /sys/power/mem_sleep s2idle [deep]
Manual Fan Control
As written in the manual, a very basic toggle is Fn + 1. If the TUXEDO Control Center is installed, this will be blocked as it provides a finer way to control the fans.
If you experience issues such as randomly driver changes, tap-to-click capabilities working randomly as a secondary symptom, creating a conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ with appropriate options may help.
Random bugs with bluetooth/audio
[more information needed, on kernel 5.19.14]
After reboots, I've experienced random glitches with my bluetooth connection (random audio 'skips') and touchpad. While I don't know the exact cause, (drivers entering an incorrect state on shutdown?), I've found and tested a solution:
Powering down, unplugged, for 1 min.
