Known issues

The following are known problems and workarounds for the Lenovo Thinkpad T430s, and likely also for the related models (X230, T430, T530).

Open issues

  • The usual issue with laptop hard drives and disk head parking: see here
  • At least on one T430s, using QCad with SNA would reliably crash Xorg. A workaround is using UXA instead of SNA. (FS#31617)
  • The accelerometer for HDAPS isn't supported.

Fixed

  • Fixed accurately setting the brightness levels with the Fn + brightness up/down shortcut keys. The problem comes from Intel graphics, and the solution can be found from here.

Laptop Settings

Xbindkeys or sxhkd can be used to create and modify keyboard bindings. The following example requires the xorg-xset package, and turns the display off when the rectangular button to the right of the microphone mute button is pressed.

~/.xinbkeysrc
# Close display
"xset dpms force off"
    m:0x0 + c:156
    XF86Launch1
