Audio

The headphone jack will not work, and the speakers will not mute when a headphone is plugged in and the integrated mic will not work either.

In order to fix this, follow these steps.

1. Install ALSA drivers available at Realtek [1]

tar xvf LinuxPkg_x.x
tar xvf alsa-driver-1.0.xx
cd alsa-driver-1.0.xx
./configure --with-cards=hda-intel
make
make install
Note: Realtek's ALSA drivers, currently 1.0.23-5.15rc5, are not compiling properly in kernel 2.6.35. As an alternative, download the latest alsa-driver snapshot from here[2][dead link 2020-03-28 ⓘ] (tested with 01/09/2010 snapshot)

2. Add options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=auto to /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf.

Open /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf and add:

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel

Touchpad

Type xinput list . What you want to see:

⎜   ↳ ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad                	id=16	[slave  pointer  (2)]

However, you will see that the system is misinterpreting the touchpad for a wheel mouse. This is because this laptop (and so many others recently) is using an Elantech Touchpad. In order to fix it, enter this in the command line:

echo "options psmouse force_elantech=1" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf
sudo rmmod psmouse && sudo modprobe psmouse

Then, open /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf. A bare minimum configuration requires this text:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier      "touchpad catchall"
        Driver          "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
              Option    "LeftEdge"              "130"
              Option    "RightEdge"             "840"
              Option    "TopEdge"               "130"
              Option    "BottomEdge"            "640"
EndSection
Note: While I settled with these coordinates, they may require tuning: Touchpad Synaptics#Synclient.

Working 10-synaptics.conf

Here is a fully working 10-synaptics.conf with Edge Scrolling, Two Finger Scrolling and with middle mouse click (LTCornerButton and RTCornerButton) on the top corners activated. Circular Scrolling works, but it's deactivated.

Function Keys

Most of them do work. Exceptions are the multimedia player commands (fn+arrows), fn+c, fn+v and fn+F9 (which should disable the touchpad). It should be possible to have them all working by following Extra keyboard keys.
