Model description

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Comes without optical drive. Has UEFI BIOS with BIOS-legacy fallback mode.

Legacy-BIOS

This procedure is far less involved then UEFI and works perfectly.

In order to turn off UEFI booting you will need to boot into your BIOS and change the boot mode to Legacy. Afterward, follow the Beginner's Guide for standard installation instructions.

UEFI

Hardware

Almost everything works out of the box.

Video

Install xf86-video-intel drivers.

Add this in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

  1. Section "Device"
  2. Identifier "Intel Graphics"
  3. Driver "intel"
  4. Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
  5. EndSection


Fingerprint Reader

fingerprint-gui from the AUR is already patched to work with the X1's newer fingerprint reader. To get the gui's dropdown to recognize your device, you'll have to add your user to the plugdev group:

# gpasswd -a <username> plugdev
