The synaptics package is required to use the touchpad. For help refer to the Touchpad_Synaptics guide. Manual configuration is needed as follows to ignore movements, scrolling and tapping on the bottom section of the touchpad, where the touchpad buttons are located.
Firstly install the synaptics package.
# pacman -S xf86-input-synaptics
Once X has been restarted, the bottom part of the touchpad will be disabled, allowing a user to click without unintentional movements of the mouse. See the synaptics manual page for available options:
$ man synaptics
The Wireless NIC is supported by b43 and is included in kernel from 2.6.32 on. Firmware must be installed for this hardware, as outlined in the guide Wireless_Setup#b43.
Configure ALSA as outlined in the guide Beginners'_Guide#Part_III:_Install_X_and_configure_ALSA.
pm-suspend from the pm-utils package works. Also install the acpid package, and in the file /etc/acpi/handlers.sh, put:
under button/lid. That will allow the machine to suspend to RAM when the lid is closed. Putting the same line under button/power) will allow "suspend to RAM" when the power button is pressed also. The machine will resume automatically after either the lid is open or the power button is pressed again.
UVC 1.00 compatible - should work out of the box, with the latest kernel (remember to add user to video group). You may use the
cheese package to test it.
If you have solid-state drive (SSD), then you will want to reduce the number of writes to the disk. You can use the tmpfs system to reduce write activities on solid-state drive. Edit /etc/fstab to add the following:
none /var/log tmpfs size=10M 0 0 none /var/tmp tmpfs size=20M 0 0 none /tmp tmpfs size=200M 0 0
