Note: Because of my bluetooth not working, I'am still stuck to the uncomfortable option to master the ugly touthpad here.

Device Information

There are many configurations for these models of HP Probooks. Mine is like the following "lspci". Mostly, the stuff in lspci is pretty meaningless, because your OS (most likely Arch) will pick up all the device modules automatically, so you should't worry or pay too close attention to them. The most and only items in the lspci are your graphics card and your wireless networking card.

other devices needing an attention

  • Synaptics Clikpad (looks like a touchpad, but it has both of the buttons integrated in the overall touching zone of the touchpad).
  • Battery life!!! Huuuuge difference of battery life when win7 and Arch compared. I suspect it to be tricky configuration of lm-sensors, cpufreq, and acpi alltogether.

Clikpad (touchpad)

The touchpad in this laptop is the so called ClickPad which needs some user space patching.
