This info may be helpful in addition to the Arch Linux Installation guide.


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.

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"

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"

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

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.


See Wireless network configuration#iwlegacy (ipw3945 chipset).




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