Pre installation notes

Remember to back up the restore partition if you plan to restore to Microsoft Windows, or even leave it.

As the laptop does not have a built-in CD/DVD drive you might have to use a USB stick or similar device. Look in this how to install from USB stick for more information.

Follow the official Archlinux install guide

Accessing the recovery partition with GRUB

Edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst file and add the following:

# booting "Rescue and Recovery" partition from Lenovo
title Thinkpad Maintenance
unhide (hd0,0)
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Configuration

Sound

Sound works out of the box. All modules are loaded upon boot.

Refer to following guides to set it up:

OSS

ALSA

PulseAudio

There might be others. Personally I use ALSA and Pulseaudio, but some say that OSS has better sound, try for yourself.

Ethernet

Works out of the box. e1000, for older kernels e1000e module should be loaded upon boot, since its an PCI Express device.

WiFi

Works out of the box, firmware needs to be installed. Refer to Wireless Setup for iwl3945, iwl4965 and iwl5000 series

Configure xorg with:

You can get my Xorg.conf here Lenovo Thinkpad X60 Tablet SXGA+ xorg.conf

Stylus

You can get the stylus to work by installing linuxwacom. Find the latest in AUR

Add the following sections to your xorg.conf to make it work:

Section "ServerLayout"
...
    InputDevice    "Cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
    InputDevice    "Stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
    InputDevice    "Eraser" "SendCoreEvents"
...
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Cursor"
    Driver      "wacom"
    Option      "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
    Option      "Type" "cursor"
    Option      "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
    Option      "KeepShape" "on"
    Option      "Mode" "Absolute"
    Option      "BottomY" "18432"
    Option      "BottomX" "24576"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Stylus"
    Driver      "wacom"
    Option      "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
    Option      "Type" "stylus"
    Option      "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
    Option      "KeepShape" "on"
    Option      "TPCButton" "off"
    Option      "BottomY" "18432"
    Option      "BottomX" "24576"
    Option      "Mode" "Absolute"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Eraser"
    Driver      "wacom"
    Option      "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
    Option      "Type" "eraser"
    Option      "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
    Option      "KeepShape" "on"
    Option      "BottomY" "18432"
    Option      "BottomX" "24576"
EndSection

Also add the following if X -configure does not do it:

Section "Monitor"
    DisplaySize     245 18
...
EndSection

Automatic rotation

I've written a set of small scripts to help rotating the screen if the screen is swiveled down, up and when the rotate button is pressed.
