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'''.

Sound

Works poorly with ALSA. Both SPDIF and the external microphone do not work. The internal microphone above the LCD works, however the volume can't be changed or the microphone disabled in alsamixer.

TOUCHPAD

Tango-edit-clear.pngThis article or section needs language, wiki syntax or style improvements. See Help:Style for reference.Tango-edit-clear.png

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"
EndSection

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"
EndSection

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

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.

WIFI

See Wireless network configuration#iwlegacy (ipw3945 chipset).

ACPI

Works.

HOTKEYS, SPECIAL BUTTONS

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