There's no card support at the moment (3.9 branch). However 3rd-party driver exists, and it's on the way to merging into mainline. As we want to use it right now, we'll use AUR:

To load driver, type '''sudo modprobe alx'''. dmesg will indicate something like this:

Touchpad LED also works (out-of-the-box). To turn LED on:
[75367.300728] Backport based on linux-stable.git v3.9-rc4
 
[75367.300730] compat.git: linux-stable.git

[75367.314351] alx 0000:02:00.0: alx(84:8f:69:d3:a6:09): Qualcomm Atheros Ethernet Network Connection
 
 
 
Then configure network as usual.

Original Ubuntu provides 3rd-party unknown daemon for touchpad, and control utility is written in Java. That is unknown crap, moreover it's unavailable for non-Ubuntu system. The worst is that currently (3.9 kernel) touchpad is not supported by kernel. It's detected as common PS/2 mouse, but recently 3rd-party driver appeared:
 
 
 
yaourt psmouse-alps-driver
 
 
 
After compiling and installing it would be nice to reload '''psmouse''' module:
 
 
 
sudo rmmod psmouse
 
sudo modprobe psmouse
 
 
 
Voilà — touchpad works as it must: you may use two-fingers scroll in any direction, control it via gsynaptics etc. Touchpad LED also works (out-of-the-box). To turn LED on:

Hardware

Wi-Fi

Works out-of-the-box.

Ethernet

Works out-of-the-box on current 3.19 kernel. alx draiver got upstreamed somewhere around kernel version 3.10.

Touchpad

Touchpad now works out-of-the-box starting from kernel 3.14.

Touchpad LED also works (out-of-the-box). To turn LED on:

echo 255 >/sys/class/leds/dell-laptop::touchpad/brightness

and off:

echo 0 >/sys/class/leds/dell-laptop::touchpad/brightness

Webcam

Works out-of-the-box. You don't need GSPCA for that.

Card reader

Works out-of-the-box. Notice that rts5139 driver is in staging, so be ready to complain on bugs.

Video

Intel HD4000 works OK since 3.4 kernel, use earlier kernels at one's own risk.

Sound

Works out-of-the-box:

CONFIG_SND_HDA_INTEL=m
CONFIG_SND_HDA_PREALLOC_SIZE=4096
CONFIG_SND_HDA_HWDEP=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_RECONFIG=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP_MODE=1
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_JACK=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_PATCH_LOADER=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_HDMI=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CIRRUS=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_GENERIC=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_POWER_SAVE_DEFAULT=0

Other HDA codecs are unnecessary.

Note that full sound support including internal mic support appeared in 3.9 kernel, do consider using it. PulseAudio works OK as well.

Multimedia keys

No way to make hardware ones work. Brightness, volume and mediaplayer keys work OK. For touchpad toggling consider using my desktop-scripts: [2]

Fingerprint Reader

Test libfprintd version with VFS5011 Fingerprint Reader support is available here: [3]. Work OK.

Actions

Brightness adjustment

It's OK to pass the following options to kernel via bootloader:

acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor

to use native brightness control module. Otherwise it's level won't be stored. But if you use KDE, remove this one:

acpi_backlight=vendor

otherwise KDE won't be able to adjust brightness.

Hibernation

It works, but requires several tricks to take bugs away. Create tricks.sh file in /usr/lib/systemd/system-sleep/ folder with the following content:

#!/bin/sh

case $1/$2 in
pre/hibernate)
        echo never >/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled
        echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/replace_swsusp
        echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/compression/enabled
        echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/user_interface/enable_escape
        echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/user_interface/default_console_level
        echo lzo >/sys/power/tuxonice/compression/algorithm
        echo shutdown >/sys/power/disk
        ifconfig wlan0 down
        uksmctl -d
        sync
        ;;
post/hibernate)
        hdparm -B 253 /dev/sda
        uksmctl -a
        echo madvise >/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled
        ;;
pre/suspend)
        uksmctl -d
        sync
        ;;
post/suspend)
        hdparm -B 253 /dev/sda
        uksmctl -a
        ;;
esac

and make it executable. It you don't use pf-kernel, remove all strings related to TuxOnIce, UKSM and Transparent Hugepages.

Also it's nice to pass the following option to kernel via bootloader:

i8042.nopnp

otherwise errors during hibernation may occur. They do not interrupt hibernation, just pollute the screen. Everything works without this option.

Suspend to RAM

Works out-of-the-box.
