Section Wireless

This is just the data output by iw (or the ath10k driver being wrong). I have no problems downloading or uploading files over WLAN with a sustained speeds of several MByte/s (Ubuntu and Arch) while iw dev wlp58s0 link reports 1 or 6 Mbits/s

- Thanks for the information. I directly switched the wlan card my XPS13 had to an Intel 8265 chip, which runs very nice with Linux. This was planed from the beginning, so i didn't check the 1 MByte/s iw gave me further. Feel free to add that.

Touchscreen

Initially works out of the box but sometimes dies after resume from suspend. Anyone else getting this?

Hey there, it's the same for me! I don't use it anyway so I just made a fast check and could not find a solution. Can't see something irregual in dmesg or journactl, so it could be a prolem with libinput...

Update: When starting Arch I can see the ELAN Touchscreen in "libinput-list-devices" and also in xinput list as a virtual device. After suspend its gone from both...

Found a answer to that problem on kernel.org and added it to the wiki. kernel.org

External Monitors

Having trouble with an external monitor using a DisplayPort <-> USB-C cable. Anyone else seeing this? Monitor is detected fine by XPS, but no signal being sent by the XPS to the monitor.


I think you will need an active adapter to use that. I tried it with an combi adapter i bought from cable matters and could connect it via vga or hdmi withou any problem. Because i wanted to have a 4k display and 60 Hz i now bought an plugable thunderbolt to 2 times Display Port Adapter and will tell you how it works once i got it.

I have a similar problem using the official Dell adapter when going from USB-C to HDMI. Interestingly it works if I use 1280x800 or anything lower as the resolution but for anything above that I don’t get any output. The supported resolutions seem to be recognized correctly by xrandr.

XPS pages renaming

I suggest to rename archwiki pages in order to respect the hardware product code, because year differentiation is wrong e.g. third and fourth generation are both dated 2015, while generation is not easy to correspond to the hardware since Dell also use product code e.g. in the support page. archwiki pages become:

  • Dell XPS 13 (2015) ------> Dell XPS 13 (9343)
  • Dell XPS 13 (2016) ------> Dell XPS 13 (9350)
  • Dell XPS 13 (4th Gen) ---> Dell XPS 13 (9360)

Well this sounds like a good idea to me, is it actually possible to change page name?
